11. Incorrect longitude – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
During the course of 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, GPS co-ordinates appear on screen whenever the film introduces a new location. But although they may look cool, these co-ordinates are often wildly inaccurate. For example, this set-up of the S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters lists the building’s longitude – which refers to co-ordinates on an east/west axis – as being in a southerly direction.
10. Incorrect co-ordinates – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Likewise, this follow-up caption from The Winter Soldier lists both longitude and latitude as north. However, upon further inspection the shot features another hidden error. While pertaining to an area in the Indian Ocean, the co-ordinates actually point to a location in the Arabian Sea.
9. Bullet hole in an Air Force One window – Iron Man 3
Being the personal transport of the leader of the free world, the planes that act as Air Force One naturally come equipped with heavy protection. Bulletproof windows are just one such defensive feature. However, the producers of 2013’s Iron Man 3 ignored this real-life detail. Indeed, during a shootout on the president’s plane, a stray round actually pierces what should be impervious glass.
8. The Triskelion is missing from the D.C. skyline – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Towards the finale of 2014’s Winter Soldier, the Triskelion – a.k.a. S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Washington headquarters – meets an explosive end. But eagle-eyed viewers might have noticed the building missing from the D.C. skyline earlier in the film. Specifically, when Steve Rogers goes on his morning run in the film’s opening, the structure is noticeably absent from view.
