THE AVENGERS Is The Most Mistake Filled Movie Of 2012 (So Far)

According to Movie Joss Whedon's big screen depiction of Earth's Mightiest Heroes is the most mistake filled movie of 2012 (so far).

At a count of 15, Marvel's The Avengers is 2012's most mistake filled movie so far (The Hunger Games is second at 13). Here are some of the mistakes that have been identified thus far---

Factual error: The video game company NAMCO Bandai is misspelled twice as "NAMECO Bandai" in the end credits.

Audio problem: When one of the computer operators resumed playing Galaga, the sound effect heard is for an enemy ship attempting to capture the player's ship, but what's shown on screen is normal gameplay.

Continuity: In multiple shots where Iron Man is flying around the city, there are cuts on his forehead. However, when he is lying on the ground and Thor rips the face mask of his suit off, the cuts on his forehead have disappeared.

Continuity: After Iron Man takes out a worm "Jonah style", he crashes into a cab and stop about two feet away. He gets up, there is a quick shot of him on the inside of his suit, and when he gets up, the cab is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity: Near the end of the big battle scene, Captain America is winged by a blaster bolt. When he is helped to his feet by Thor, he is holding his side, and there is visible damage to his uniform. In later shots, all evidence of being shot is gone from his uniform.

Continuity: Just after Dr. Banner asks Nick Fury how many spectrometers the Helicarrier has access to, he takes off his jacket, rolls it up, and puts it under his arm. In the next shot, the jacket is suddenly draped over his arm.

Continuity: When the vehicle bringing Captain America & Agent Coulson to the Helicarrier lands, in the wide shot, as the vehicle touches down, the wing tips fold downwards and inwards as if preparing for storage on board. But in the next shots outside the vehicle as Captain America disembarks, the wing tips are in their extended and locked flight position.

Factual error: In the scene in Stuttgart, we see a "reserved parking" sign written as "Reservierten Parken". In correct German it would be written "Reservierter Parkplatz".

Continuity: Throughout the film, Tony Stark's chest ring can be seen glowing through his shirt except for two occasions when it's suddenly off - after Loki escapes from the helicarrier, and when Loki and Tony Stark are talking in Stark tower.

Continuity: When Captain America is punching the heavy bags and Fury first walks in, the bag that Captain America is punching (not the one he already broke) changes from not having duct tape around the middle, to having it, and then back.

Audio problem: When Bruce Banner meets Natasha Romanoff for the first time in Calcutta, there's a shot from behind her where Natasha is heard talking but her reflection in the small mirror behind Bruce isn't.

Dasvud - 6/21/2012, 2:11 PM
Some people REALLY have too much time on their hands
zemus - 6/21/2012, 2:11 PM
Oh no! Not misspelling! Now I hate this movie! /sarcasm
LMB10 - 6/21/2012, 2:11 PM
Honestly... Who cares? All films have mistakes like that in them.
SHHH - 6/21/2012, 2:11 PM
Some Of The CGI Was Off... The Movie Had Plenty Of Error's Like Most Movies Do... Look Hard Enough You Will Find It..
Dasvud - 6/21/2012, 2:12 PM
I'd like to see what the continuity the people who write these would be like if they made a movie!
jazzman - 6/21/2012, 2:12 PM
another record broken by The Avengers LOL

SolidSnake007 - 6/21/2012, 2:13 PM
Eh, Star Wars had a bunch of these errors too, but still is one of the greatest movies ever made.
TheMyth - 6/21/2012, 2:14 PM
This is the weakest "mistake" list I've ever seen. They were REALLY grasping for this one.
ksommer - 6/21/2012, 2:14 PM
Wow... You have to watch those movies closely to catch that stuff.
TayDee - 6/21/2012, 2:14 PM
Who cares about these things?
SHHH - 6/21/2012, 2:16 PM
Off Topic... The Liam Neeson

SageMode - 6/21/2012, 2:17 PM
Let the impending Nolanite brigade commence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MarkJulian - 6/21/2012, 2:18 PM
It's just a tally. I personally saw the film 3 times.
ralfinader - 6/21/2012, 2:18 PM
Yeah, movies tend to be less magical when you put them under a microscope.

@Jazzman - lol
MadJakHatesSpinoffs - 6/21/2012, 2:18 PM
Did you record this at the theater and go back and watch it 100 times and intentionally look for errors? I wish I had that much time on my hands.
MJPETTY7 - 6/21/2012, 2:19 PM
Only one that I noticed and that actually bugged me was Tony's chest light...
mob7medina - 6/21/2012, 2:19 PM
Really who gives a s**t?This Movie was awesome!I don't think it will make Joss whedon any less of a good filmmaker really imo...
LucasMend - 6/21/2012, 2:20 PM
Woah, the people from that mistakes site has a lot of free time huh
MJPETTY7 - 6/21/2012, 2:20 PM
@MarkJullian I saw it 5. Twice in one day, once with a friend, once with my brother, and on me and my girlfriends first date.
CaptainObvious - 6/21/2012, 2:20 PM
I have come to the conclusion that I don't care.
Jer3miah - 6/21/2012, 2:21 PM
Lol, hecks naaaah.
SHHH - 6/21/2012, 2:22 PM
One Viewing IS Enough...
Fogs - 6/21/2012, 2:22 PM
Dudes, don't take this too seriously... This is pretty normal. is good fun. Look for some movies there and re-watch them trying to find the mistakes. That's all it is.

People who think this reflects the overall quality of the movie don't even imagine the editing process work and should have their brains checked.

"Eh, Star Wars had a bunch of these errors too, but still is one of the greatest movies ever made. "

Avengers is no STAR WARS...well until Lucas F'd it up...NOW it's like the Avengers
StarSpangledBruce - 6/21/2012, 2:24 PM
Great movie, but it wasn't perfect.
SHHH - 6/21/2012, 2:25 PM
@nhalden: Thank You....
deanwilkins - 6/21/2012, 2:26 PM
Who cares? I loved the movie!

AmazingFantasy - 6/21/2012, 2:29 PM
Oh shit the movie must suck.
0ptimusCrime - 6/21/2012, 2:29 PM
Really, go do something different instead of searching for mistakes in movies
JasonMD - 6/21/2012, 2:30 PM
i watched the movie 3 times and didnt notice any of these things, lol
Jolt17 - 6/21/2012, 2:30 PM
My God, the duct tape is missing from Steve's punching bag...the movie has gone down a few levels for me.

Nah. I really hate this kind of thing, really. Well, not exactly them all - there are some mistakes so significant they're pretty fun to see; but when it already comes to (and most of the mistakes listed are of these types) something like duct tapes, and foremost, those "hair direction changes", "sleeves rolled up/not", "hand suddenly moves" thing, it's like...really?
Unas - 6/21/2012, 2:31 PM
The movie was alright, nothing to CONTINUOUSLY write an article about.
AmazingFantasy - 6/21/2012, 2:32 PM
Movies have errors, get over them.
gugs69 - 6/21/2012, 2:33 PM
am i the only one that thought that this movie sucked compared to the dark knight
spectre88 - 6/21/2012, 2:34 PM
That's it I no longer love this movie...psshh
TheJoshider - 6/21/2012, 2:34 PM
of course people would get butthurt about it.

1. imo the avengers was an average film anyway. the plot was average and the ending was so clichee

2. im glad people bring up these mistakes. do people not understand that people get PAID for making sure errors like these arent in the films? im sorry, but not spelling in correct languages is simply pathetic. did they just use google translate? for a film thats made so much money, i expect the probable sequel to have at least a 90% accurate film regarding errors like the ones on the article
