15. Spelling error on the front cover of Forbes – Iron Man
Spelling is an important point for any publishing business. So Marvel should have known that a magazine like Forbes – which features a fictional mock cover in the original Iron Man – would have written “Tony Stark takes reins” and not “reigns.” Whoops!
14. Spelling error on a S.H.I.E.L.D. monitor – Thor
Clearly, spelling isn’t Marvel’s forte, and three years after Iron Man the company made a similar blunder in Thor. During S.H.I.E.L.D.’s reconnaissance of the title character’s hammer, the word “perimeter” is spelled as “perimiter” on a video screen. Come on, guys, spell check only takes a second.
13. Anachronistic APCs – Captain America: The First Avenger
When making a movie set in the past, filmmakers have to ensure that the period details are all present and correct. But for all their good work on the World War II-set Captain America, the producers overlooked some important details regarding military equipment. Specifically, Hydra operatives can be seen using FV432 APCs, a vehicle that first entered service some 20 years after the conflict’s end.

In addition to messing up bygone military vehicles, Marvel also has a habit of getting current hardware wrong. After the Hulk goes on a rampage onn board the Helicarrier in The Avengers, an F-35B fighter opens fire with two cannons. However, the real-life jet has just one gun, which is mounted underneath the aircraft.
