Spider-Man: Homecoming

Factual error: The ferry splits in half down the middle...enough so the water is flooding in dramatically as the split grows. There is no possible way that the two halves of the ferry could have remained afloat like that. It would have sunk immediately. Then, as Iron Man "welds" the two halves back together, the ferry is afloat at the same waterline as before the incident...certainly not feasible with all the water it took on.

Suggested correction: Actually, it could be the same waterline, because all the cars are seen floating out. That way, a huge amount of weight would have been lost, but with the new addition of the water taken on, it would be about the same.

The weight of the water displaced would be equal to the weight of the car while is floating so that would make absolutely no sense at all. The water that would fill the total area that would have been taken by the car would be far greater.

Center of gravity takes precedence. Sliced down the middle, the two halves of the ferry would have instantly toppled away into the water.

Charles Austin Miller

Well, not instantly. There's a lot of mass with a lot of inertia there. It would take some time for them to gain momentum.

Factual error: When the bus is shown entering Washington, DC for the competition, the shot shows the bus traveling over the Arlington Memorial Bridge with the Lincoln Memorial in the background. That bridge is on the southwest side of the city. Since NYC is to the northeast of DC, this means that to get to that bridge and enter DC that way, the bus had to drive all the way around the city and then come back in from the opposite direction. Even if the bus driver made a mistake and missed the most direct route into the city from the north, there are dozens of other ways to get to the heart of the city without adding a good 45 minutes to an hour to the trip.

Factual error: After Toomes and his crew lose the cleanup contract and they are back in their shop, on the table is a Coors "stubby" Banquet beer bottle. This bottle was released in 2013 and the scene takes place earlier than that.

Question: Spoiler Alert. Why did Toomes lie about not knowing Spider Man's identity in the first post credits scene?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He may want Spider-Man all to himself for foiling his plans, or he may feel indebted to Spider-Man for saving his life.

Question: Is it true that the actor who plays Flash received death threats after he got the role?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Actor Tony Revolori, nee Anthony Quinonez, was a controversial choice to play Flash. In the comic books, Flash is a jock of European descent. Mr. Revolori is Guatemalan, and not particularly athletic in appearance. Some comic book fans are notoriously traditional. Often, when the race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation of well known comic book characters are changed for modern portrayals, a segment of the fan base reacts negatively. In an interview with the website CBR.com, the actor stated: "I'm not what the character was in the comic books...and there's still people who will hate that fact. It was very disheartening to receive hate mail and death threats and things like that." There is no mention of the exact nature of the alleged threats, nor how seriously Mr. Revolori took them. There is also no indication of formal police involvement.
