8 Marvel Movie Mistakes So Dumb, They're Practically Easter Eggs
Get ready to cringe.
Between the epic heroes and action-packed battles, these massive movies completely messed up the smaller details.
2 Birthdays are not always better than one
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a tribute to 'Bucky', two birth years are given. At the top it says 1916, but at the bottom of the tribute it says 1917.
Time and date inconsistencies happen, and are usually forgivable, but this all happened in the same frame.
Captain America’s self-repairing shield
Avengers Endgame gave us one of the most epic Marvel battles to date, and another Marvel mistake.
After Thanos destroys a piece of Captain America's iconic shield, we see him with the broken shield at his side, but then the camera pans out to show all the characters coming through the portals, and the shield is suddenly whole again.
The time traveling mixtape
One of Peter Quill's most prized possessions from Earth is his cassette tape, but the model he has was only introduced in 1993, yet Peter was abducted from Earth by Yondu and his scavengers in 1988, 5 years before his mixtape existed.
One could argue that Ego had something to do with time travel, but we all know that the likely answer is a mistake made in the research department.
Two for two, another mistake involving Peter Quill was the letter from his mother. The voiceover and the letter itself did not match, which was almost impossible to miss considering we were all reading the letter along with Quill.
Spider-Man's time travel
The events of Spider-Man Homecoming began in 2012, just after the Battle of New York in the first Avengers movie. After that film, there is an eight-year jump, intended to land after Captain America: Civil War, which took place in 2016, but it would have made more sense if the jump had been 5 years instead of 8.
Two versions of Civil War
Here we see two different versions of the same interaction.
In Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker is portrayed as a real chatterbox, awkwardly greeting everyone individually before the battle fully begins. However, in a vlog made by Peter in the movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, his greeting simply goes, "Hello, folks."
Dr. Strange's medical misstep
In the medical profession, doctors are trained to first put on their masks and then wash their hands to reduce the chance of infecting patients; this is done in reverse by Dr. Stephen Strange as he prepares to operate in the Doctor Strange movie.
Apparently, he can save the world but can't remember the basic steps of prepping for surgery.
I-spy Nick Fury's eye
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we see a photo of Fury being sworn in as director of S.H.I.E.LD in which he should be wearing his eye patch.
Fury lost his eye after an alien Flaken attack in 1995, and was sworn in sometime in the early 2000s, but in the photo Fury clearly has two healthy eyes. It seems that timelines are not Marvel's strong suit.
