'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Movie Mistakes Revealed

Spider-Man: Homecoming may have successfully re-energized the Spider-Man franchise, winning over fans and critics alike, but that doesn't mean it's a perfect film. Every movie, no matter how fun it is, has its fair share of errors, continuity mistakes, and other flubs.

Thanks to detail-oriented fans over at MovieMistakes.com, we now have a list of the various mistakes in the latest of the friendly neighborhood webslinger's adventures. While many of the errors fans have submitted are continuity issues, there are a few factual errors that are big enough to leave us scratching our heads.

One example of these factual errors involves the ferry scene. In the scene, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) gets on the Staten Island Ferry to stop Adrian Toomes/Vulture (Michael Keaton) from selling advanced weapons to Mac Gargan. However, Toomes escapes and a malfunctioning weapon tears the ferry in half. According to the site, the halves of the ferry would not have been able to remain afloat for Spider-Man and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) to save the day. The water flooding the ferry would have been enough that it would have sunk the halves almost immediately. Fans also took issue with the restored ferry -- after Iron Man "welds" it back together -- having the same waterline as before it was split apart.

The other major factual error fans found involved simple geography. Someone noticed that when the bus enters Washington, D.C. for the national decathlon tournament it crosses the Arlington Memorial Bridge, located on the southwest side of the city. With New York City being northeast of the nation's capital, the only way the bus would have crossed that bridge was if they had driven around the city simply to enter from the opposite side, adding almost an hour to the total trip time and thus making it not a likely route -- unless, of course, you were just going for that iconic Lincoln Memorial backdrop. It did look cool, after all.
