11 Mistakes In Superhero Movies That Will Make You Stop And Think

Do you know that Marvel and other superhero films that we’ve been watching since we were kids aren’t always perfect? Yes, there are numerous flaws in many scenes that we don’t see because we are so engrossed in the tale and performance of our favorite characters that we can’t notice them.

The production of films and comic books requires the unwavering efforts of a vast number of people. When it comes to creating the complicated worlds and personalities of the main characters, they often try to think through every minute detail. Small flaws and errors can slip through even the most thorough checks. But no matter what flaws are there, a die-hard movie fan can always detect each and every smallest mistake in these movies.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of the foolish mistakes that we haven’t realized. And to be honest, we don’t want to see them because we won’t be able to watch our favorite movies like before. So, continue scrolling down to see what we missed while watching our favorite shows!

1. Remember how Spiderman grabbed this Solid Lamp?

Peter Parker accidentally pulled a light and smashed it against the wall while attempting to figure out how his web-shooters worked. However, when his aunt knocks on his door a few minutes later, we can see the full and unbroken lamp in the identical spot where it was before breaking.

2. Some logic missing in the Spiderman movie!

There is a logical fault in the Spider-Man storyline. It is primarily due to the fact that the film’s creators were unable to determine when the entire plot of the film took place.

  • In Captain America: Civil War things happen in 2016.
  • In Civil War, the Secretary of State says that the first attack on New York happened 4 years ago. So, the events of The Avengers must have happened in 2012.
  • A couple of months after Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place. However, the movie begins with a retrospective view. Namely, clearing away the wreckage left after the first fight of the Avengers against the invaders.
  • After this scene, we’re told that 8 years passed before the main plot of Spider-Man: Homecoming begins (remember that this should’ve taken place 2 months after Captain America: Civil War).
  • It turns out, that instead of 2 months it’s been 4 years between Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
  • This suggests a bigger problem: if Spider-Man: Homecoming took place 8 years after The Avengers, it means, that Spider-Man’s main plot happened in 2020 — 2 years after Avengers: Infinity War. But, Spider-Man has yet to be accepted to the Avengers’ team.

Perhaps Spider-Man is a time traveler who will return to the events of four years ago in eight years. It just doesn’t make sense in any case.

3. Geographical mistakes in Thor movie!

Thor made a geographic error in which he chooses to travel in the wrong way. It all starts with a misunderstanding of the world’s two sides. When the thunder god starts to look for his hammer, he discovers that it is in the west. Thor glances to the sun to see which direction he should proceed in. The sun was in the east because it happened in the morning. To the west, all objects cast shadows. Thor’s shadow was cast to his left, indicating that he was going to the north.

4. Time Zone mistakes in the “Man of Steel” Movie!

The makers of Man of Steel, the Superman film, don’t know anything about geography too. In this tale, aliens from the planet Crypton send a message to humans. It displays on all TV screens throughout the world at the same time. However, despite the time difference, based on what we see in the film, it is nighttime everywhere on the planet. It is not feasible for this to happen.

5. Loki’s Scepter!

We see Black Widow wielding Loki’s scepter at the end of The Avengers. This powerful and hazardous item eventually got itself in the hands of the Avengers, who should have kept it safe. However, we learn at the start of Avengers: Age of Ultron that the scepter has slipped into the clutches of Hydra. But we have no idea how this happened. The solution can be discovered in the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D where the Hydra steals the scepter and other valuable artifacts. We all know that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is far less popular than the Avengers films, which is why many fans of the superhero team were baffled.

6. Remember the scene of Loki’s telepathy?

  • At the end of this film, Thor’s sworn brother Loki falls into space and falls into a black hole.
  • Thor and his father Odin – the ruler of Asgard, then have a private talk in which Thor admits that Odin is the wisest ruler Asgard has ever had.
  • At the end of Thor: Thor approaches Odin to speak again.
  • Odin recalls Thor’s statements about his wise rule and wonders if Thor still stays true to his beliefs.

However, there is no Odin at this moment, only Loki dressed like his father. It’s not clear how he learned of Thor and Odin’s private conversation.

7. Mr. Freeze is incredibly lucky!

Via Batman & Robin / Warner Bros.,

Mr. Freeze, a villain from Batman & Robin, is incredibly lucky.

  • First, when he freezes Robin, who is carrying a diamond, he avoids freezing the costly stone. As a result, the villain easily snatches the diamond from Robin’s grasp. Logically, he should’ve had to cope with a layer of ice on the diamond before grabbing it.
  • Second, when Mr. Freeze pins him to the wall, Batman chooses to get into a comfortable posture. It appears like the superhero purposefully stands upright and extends his hands to make it easier for the villain to freeze him.

8. Room full of people in Batman movie!

Via The Dark Knight / Warner Bros.,

Only the most observant fans, who must have seen The Dark Knight at least a few times, were aware of this blunder. The helicopter’s searchlight illuminated a room filled with individuals in the scene on the roof. Obviously, the film crew unintentionally got in the way of the camera shot while watching the filming procedure.

9. Chris Evan played two different roles.

In the Marvel universe, Chris Evan played two superheroes roles that have identical appearances.

  • Chris Evans plays Johnny Storm, often known as Human Torch, in Fantastic Four, a film based on the Marvel comic series.
  • Evans, on the other hand, appears as Captain America in the Avengers films.

It’s worth noting that Fantastic Four was produced by 20th Century Fox rather than Marvel.

10. Wolverine Strong Head and a bullet!

Wolverine’s skeleton is made of very strong adamantium. When a police officer shoots at him, the mutant collapses unconscious and the bullet enters his head. But, if Wolverine’s bones are as strong as we’ve been told, how could the bullet penetrate his head and knock him out? At the very least, his regeneration skills did not fail him, and he was back to normal in a matter of minutes.

11. Ant-Man’s strength: A mystery!

Via Ant-Man / Marvel

By increasing the gap between his body’s atoms, Ant-Man can transform into a true giant. Simultaneously, he gains superhuman strength allowing him to move buses and even planes. Where does all of this power come from?

According to the comic book, Ant-Man can lift four times his own body weight while wearing his costume. However, even if the space between his body’s atoms is increased, his mass remains constant. The weight of an airplane is significantly greater than the weight of four persons. Even if Ant-Man shrinks, his weight should remain constant. Despite this, the hero manages to keep a tank in his pocket.

There’s also the theory that Ant-Man can’t become any smaller than the total sum of the sizes of his own atoms. But, in the end, he shrinks to the size of a single atom and enters the quantum world. How did he manage to do that? Nobody knows what the answer is.

As we can see, even superheroes who are constantly ready to save our world from harm aren’t faultless. Have you seen any flaws in superhero films? Let us know in the comment section below.
