Comic book movies make some gaffes...
According to MovieMistakes.com, this summer's comic book hits are the three biggest perpetrators of movie mistakes so far this year. The site reports that while adding up continuity errors, factual errors and other such technical issues, The Amazing Spider-Man has topped the list with twenty-seven, followed by The Dark Knight Rises with twenty and The Avengers with sixteen.
Most of The Amazing Spider-Man's problems were technical continuity points like shifting prop and wound placements, while The Dark Knight Rises had technical errors like lighting screen reflected in Commissioner Gordon's glasses, a lack of settled snow on street lights or mailboxes during the final act. The Avengers' errors included incorrect German spelling on signs and license plate light placements in the Stuttgart scene or an audio synch issue during the Calcutta scene between Black Widow and Bruce Banner.
The full top 10 list (with error numbers) to date is below:
1. The Amazing Spider-Man (27)
2. The Dark Knight Rises (20)
3. The Avengers (16)
4. The Hunger Games (12)
