  • When Steve and Diana get held up in the alley by the German thugs, the man who puts the revolver to Steve's head has the hammer cocked back. As the conversation continues the cocking sound can be heard again but there would be no need to as the gun was already cocked.
  • After walking through the mud, Diana's boots are spotless.
  • During the battle scenes, Diana's hair goes from messy to perfectly curly and neat. This occurs multiple times during fight scenes.
  • Throughout the movie, Diana's wristbands appear/disappear without any explanation.
  • While standing outside Cafe Buvette, Diana and Steve go from no cold breath to cold breath (where it looks like steam), to no cold breath again.
  • After liberating the town of Veld, Diana and Steve are seated in the town square with mugs of beer. Diana has a beer in her left hand and sets it on the fountain. When Steve stands to ask her to dance, she is holding the beer in her right hand and sets it down again.
  • At the airfield in the final battle, the background shows 3rd generation hardened aircraft shelters, a 1980s design.
  • By November 1918, the war had become very mobile, and while elaborate fixed defenses still existed, "No Man's Land" was still a shell-blasted wilderness; the Allied troops' greatest problem was dealing with the Germans who dug new trenches every evening.
  • The watch that Steve carries and later gives to Diana is shown to have a precise second-to-second motion of the second hand rather than a smooth, continuous motion. This precise motion is characteristic of a quartz movement. The first quartz watches were introduced in 1969 by Seiko.
  • During the trench scene where Diana is arguing with Steve about rescuing the citizens of Veld, there is a soldier on the ladder behind her (looking across No Man's Land). The shot momentarily changes to Steve and back to Diana, at which point the soldier vanishes.
  • Both Erich Ludendorff and Paul von Hindenburg survived WWI. Hindenburg died in 1934 and Ludendorff died in 1937. Neither man was even seriously injured during the conflict, although Ludendorff did experience a series of well-documented mental breakdowns.
  • Steve Trevor is shown escaping from Dr. Poison's facility in an airplane. The facility is shown as being well inland in Turkey. He is later shown running from German forces and arriving in Themyscira (the home of the Amazons) with German naval forces chasing him. Considering that there was no radar at the time and radio was in its infancy, how would they be able to track/trail him, especially since no other aircrafts are shown chasing his plane?
  • The railway carriage (US "railroad car") at the port in 1918 is named "Southern Railway". The Southern Railway did not come into existence until 1 January 1923.
  • While the song that plays in the cafe in Belgium ("Sous Les Ponts De Paris" or "Under the Bridges of Paris") was written in 1913 and therefore period-appropriate for WWI, the recording is by French singer Lucienne Delyle, who was born in 1913 and didn't record the song until 1950.
  • Steve Trevor flies a stolen Fokker Eindecker when he arrives at Wonder Woman's island. The Eindecker was in use 1915-16, but the story takes place near the end of the war. Although it is conceivable that an older plane would still be in use for liaison work and scouting in areas not directly affected with the fighting, such as The Ottoman empire, it would not still be carrying a machine gun.
  • When Steve gets dressed after his bath, we hear the sound of a zip. During WWI the zipper was a new invention and only being used in American uniforms, not in other nations uniforms or civilian clothes, and Steve is an American serving in British intelligence.
  • When Steve Trevor was in the headquarters before going to the front, his colleagues mention the German "intel". The morphology of the word "intel" is a clipping from "intelligence". The Oxford English Dictionary cites 1961 as the first use of the actual word "intel".
  • The movie takes place in 1918. General Erich Ludendorff was in the Eastern Front of WWI at that time, not the Western Front as the movie portrays.
  • Steve Trevor spots a motorcycle to make a getaway on. The bike shown is a period-correct machine, probably a Douglas or a Triumph, with a drive belt made from leather links. The scene cuts to him riding through a forest on a much faster, much more modern machine with telescopic suspension forks - which weren't invented until 1935 by BMW for the R12.
  • When Diana is racing away from the gala on a horse back to the village, the blue dress she was wearing flies off, leaving her in her Wonder Woman costume. However, if she had been wearing her costume under the dress at the gala, it would've easily been seen peeking out the top of the dress, since the dress is much lower cut across her chest than her costume is.
  • When Steve is telling the Amazons about the Germans having Turks build bombs for them, the facility shown has two Ottoman flags that feature a white crescent moon and a white star on red. Those flags belong to present-day Turkey. The Ottoman/Turkish flag used between 1844 and 1936 was very similar, but had a visibly thicker moon and a plumper star on it. Since the movie is set in 1918, the Ottoman Empire would still be using that flag.
  • All the building signs at the German airbase where the mustard gas is loaded into the bomber are in French, and so is the writing on the blackboard inside the command tower/office where Diana and Ludendorff fight. This makes sense given the geographical location of the base, namely Belgium where all military writings at this time were still in French instead of the Flemish (Dutch) spoken by many of the soldiers.
  • When Diana and Steve are having a meeting with the generals and it is discovered Diana can read Dr. Poison's book of formulas, there is a shot where Diana is missing a button on her overcoat. In the very next shot, it is back on but askew, and in the shot after that it is back in alignment with the other buttons.
  • The aeroplane in which Steve Trevor escapes from Ludendorff's base is white when he steals it in the flashback, but red in his first scene when he crashed it into the ocean off of Themyscira.
  • During the climax of the movie, Steve Trevor and the other characters use gas masks to blend in with the Germans who are loading the gas bombs onto the aircraft. Earlier in the movie it was already shown that the bombs contain gas that will disintegrate gas masks and so it is unnecessary for the Germans to wear them.
  • When the Germans attack Themyscira early in the film, they are in small boats launched from a larger boat, maybe a cruiser or destroyer, that has penetrated the island's protection. As the Germans and Amazons fight, the larger ship is shown to be listing further and further, to the point of capsizing. This would explain why it is never seen again.
  • Briefly during the first London rail terminus scene, overhead wire gantries can be seen in the background of a type that were not in use until the 1950s on-wards.
  • When the party lands in Belgium, one can see a river boat named after Édith Piaf, who was only 3 years old at the time.
  • Steve Trever never saw the Amazon soldiers practice the offensive catapult move using a shield. So he would not know to create a makeshift catapult and to signal Diana with the word "shield" allowing her to catapult herself to kill the sniper in the church spire.
  • When Steve runs after Diana as she flees from the gala, he is not wearing his hat. When he emerges from the building, he is wearing it.
  • During the gala, Steve's not wearing a hat. He wears one when leaving the castle for about ten seconds and goes to the forest with Diana with it missing for the rest of the film.
  • At the climax of the film, when Steve Trevor climbs into a German plane, there is no real reason for him to shoot the bombs and die in the explosion. He had successfully killed all the German aircraft people, so the only thing he had to do was to land the plane and celebrate his victory.
  • The song sung by Charlie in the village cafe, "I'll Walk Beside You," was written in 1939.
  • The village of Veld is allegedly a French village (the name of the town Hazebrouck is on the map and information on buildings are all in French). However on the awning of the bar, there is the word "bier" which is in Flemish or German. In French, it should be "bière". However, this might be correct, as Hazebrouck is in French-Flanders, where a lot of people used a dialect of Flemish at that time.
  • The license plate of the Wayne Enterprises armored van "JL-828-VZM" (shown in the Paris located opening sequence) is wrong. In the current French license plates format, there are only two characters in the last group.
  • During the gala, the main characters and guests dance but there is no ballroom music. There is a musical cue to support the scene's emotional tone, but the ballroom itself is nearly silent.
  • Steve comments on the boat to Diana about Marriage but then says that they don't seem to last. While this may appear to be true in 2017, In 1918, the divorce rate was quite low.
  • The Chief talks about the nightly artillery barrage and "German 77's". There are no German 77's. They would more probably have been 88's or 75's.
  • At the end of the film just before the credits, the watch Steve gave Diana was shown floating in mid air, the watch's second hand movement is digital, which hasn't been invented until 1970s.
  • When Diana is interrogating Ares, her lasso is roped around him. After Ares blows up the comms tower, Diana falls to the ground and her lasso is coiled neatly by her side.
  • When Hippolyta tells to Diana how Themyscira was created, it is visible that there is a day inside the island's dome when there is a day outside too, but when Steve Trevor's plane penetrates the dome there is a night outside and a daylight inside, while there is a night both in inside and outside the dome when Diana and Steve leave Themyscira on a boat.
  • As Steve's plane crashes on Themyscira while flying from the Ottoman Empire towards the Great Britain, the only place where the island could be located is the Mediterranean Sea Basin. Thus, it would be impossible for Diana and Steve to reach the London within a night voyage by a sailing boat, especially during the war times.
  • All species of armadillo are natives to the Americas, but one armadillo walks in the streets of Themyscira, which according to the movie geography is obviously located in Europe.
  • Since the Amazons of Themyscira speak lots of languages, it is not surprising that Diana could talk to Steve in English. Nevertheless, it is illogical that Diana started a conversation to Steve herself in English as he was wearing a German uniform during his plane-crash.
  • In the climax battle when Ares escapes from the Lasso of Hestia and throws Diana away with a blast, she falls on the ground with the lasso folded and fastened on her belt.
  • Scene with the Castle before entering the Gala, Imperial German flag banners can be seen with Nazi swastikas. The swastika was not developed by the Germans until after World War I was over.
  • One character suggests contacting the Royal Flying Corps to shoot down a bomber. However the RFC merged with the Royal Naval Air Service to form the Royal Air Force on 1st April 1918, several months before the events of the film take place.
  • The movie takes place in 1918. General Erich Ludendorff was in the eastern front of WWI at that time, and not the western front as the movie portrays.
  • In the credits, the word "Cavalry" (horse-bound soldiers) is spelled "Calvary" (Latin word for skull, name of the hill of crucifixions). Big difference in meaning, but a common spelling error.
  • In the initial battle with the Germans on the beach all of the Amazons are on top of a cliff, from which they are easily able to reach and kill many Germans who are still in their boats. Yet they give up the high ground from which they can safely and easily pick off the Germans. They then engage in hand to hand combat on the ground with enemies who clearly have superior weapons. For a group of warriors who have spent their whole lives training and fighting they would know that giving up their strategic advantage would be foolish and put many of their lives at risk. It could be reasoned that they gave up the high ground because Diana was down on the beach, alone with a stranger. They knew Diana's secret and protecting her would have been their priority, not their own safety.
  • It was not snowing when the old man took a photograph of the heroes after the battle in Veld. The photo Bruce Wayne sends to Diana seems to show snow falling, but this is not a goof ; the white flecks in the image are imperfections of the camera and printing process. In any case, the exposure time of a photograph in that era ( without flash ) would be so long, that even if it were snowing, no snowflakes would be caught on the film.
  • When Diana is dancing at the gala with the sword in the back of her blue dress, the hilt of the fake sword leans far to the right when Steve is with her, showing that there is no sword at all, just the hilt.
  • Diana at age 8 speaks in a Scottish accent which changes to an English accent to almost no accent to a "Themysciran" accent.
  • World War I ended in 1918. Diana was perhaps 20 at the time. She later worked at the Louvre, some time after the pyramid was built in 1989. That's over 70 years, making her at least 90 when she worked there. She looks pretty good for a nonagenarian. (She obviously aged while on the island.) Diana Prince is an immortal Amazon princess and thus would not be subject to the normal rigors of aging. The time frame of her childhood and upbringing are deliberately obscure. She may be hundreds of years old at the time of these events.
  • As Hippolyta leads the Amazons onto the beach, they briefly pause and the person just behind her is clearly a man in female armor.
  • When Diana is using an iPad and typing on a BlueTooth keyboard, a virtual keyboard is visible on the screen. In reality, when such a keyboard is connected, the virtual keyboard is automatically hidden.
  • When Diana reads Dr Maru's book and reveals the composition of the modified, "hydrogen-based" version of mustard gas, someone comments that "gas masks will be useless" and the audience sounds horrified. Regular mustard gas is a blister agent against which gas masks already offer no protection. The new compound has therefore no reason to trigger that comment and reaction.
  • The film repeats the common thought that British General officers stayed far behind the lines and were callous regarding the deaths of their men. In fact 78 British Generals were killed in action in World War I. British Generals above Division command did stay behind the lines.
  • The rhomboid shaped tanks seen in the fight between Diana and Ares are British designs. The German A7V tank was tall and boxy by comparison.
  • Diana took off her black cloak at No Man's Land right before she emerged from the trenches. Much later, after the fight in the village of Veld, she is wearing her black cloak when the old man takes a photograph of all our heroes. Did someone really go back to No Man's Land to collect her cloak?
  • In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), in the photo of Diana and the team, she is seen wearing her shoulder strap on her right side. However, in this movie, when the photo is taken, she is wearing it on her left side.
  • When Diana and Steve are sailing to London, they both fall asleep near Turkey (where Steve's plane was shot down) and wake up, seemingly the next morning, in London. Not only would an un-helmed sailboat almost immediately drift off course, a sailboat trip from the Eastern Mediterranean to London would take several weeks. [Arriving in London, Steve says "We caught a ride." The boat is tied to a steamer and is being towed. There is no reference in the movie as to the location of the Amazon Island. [In the comics it is in the Atlantic.] This could be a enchanted boat, possibly over 2000 years old, so may travel by its own means and travel where it needs to go while they sleep.
  • At an early point in the film, Hippolyta says "thank the gods". However she previously stated that all the gods were dead except for Ares.
  • How is it that Wonder Woman and all the women on the island know about "the pleasures of the flesh", a subtle reference to reproduction, yet they have never seen a man before?
  • Diana has no idea what a secretary is, among a few other terms, despite the fact that she is fluent in hundreds of languages, including English.
  • There's an obvious man dressed as an Amazon by Antiope when the Amazons charge on the beach during the battle against the Germans.
  • During the trench scene, there's a woman talking to Diana explaining what happened to the village where she lived. She speaks in German, however Diana answers her in Flemish.
  • When Diana is taping the email thanking Bruce Wayne for retrieving her old photo, she types "Thanks for bringing HIM back" but in Issue, she typed "Photograph". Although maybe she was talking about Steve Trevor, Wayne didn't know she was romantically involved with Trevor.
  • At the airfield in the final battle the background shows 3rd generation (1980s) hardened aircraft shelters.
  • At one point a map is shown (1:22). They locate the 'fictitious' village of Veld near the city of Hazebrouck. That's a city in the North Of France. So, not Belgium as the plot suggests. Then you hear some locals comment on Wonder Woman's destruction of the church tower. They do it in Flemish, but not with a West-Flemish accent (as spoken by some at the time in Hazebrouck).
  • Steve Trevor and Etta Candy use the word "intel" instead of "intelligence". Merriam-Webster says "intel" didn't enter the English language until the 1960's.
  • In the french village scene, you can see modern vehicles in the background.
  • There is no blood on Diana's sword after she kills Ludendorff.
  • While it seems smart to the story line to establish that Diana can speak English as part of the 100 languages she knows, the mythological realm she comes from was created long before the English language was written or spoken.
  • The "Ottoman" texts has nothing to do with the gases and stuff. They are just words that make no sense together. And the drawings between the words are meaningless. Some of the words in the book translate as: "animals", "situations", "right", "dog", "human", "hundred", "me", "there is", "feelings".
  • In any pre-industrial society, ceramic jars would be much too valuable for mere target practice when you could just as well use much cheaper items like bales of hay or straw. However, they might well be cracked, contaminated, or otherwise unusable.
  • No expert marksman can be an alcoholic since it makes your hands tremble.
  • When Diana crosses no man's land, the rate of fire of the German machine guns is much too high. The standard 08/15 Spandau MG would fire about half that many rounds per minute, just like the one in the armored car she flips a few minutes later.
  • During the feast in the ruined Belgian village, a chanson sung by Edith Piaf is heard playing on a gramophone. Piaf was only three years old in 1918.
  • When Dr Maru and Ludendorff are taking in Dr Maru's lab, there is an Avometer on the bench in the background. This film is based during the end of the first world war (1918). The Avometer was not invented until 1923.
  • The German Soldiers in the movie wore World War II helmets.
  • Steve comments on the boat to Diana about Marriage but then says that they don't seem to last. While this may appear to be true in 2017, In 1918, the divorce rate was quite low.
  • When Steve and Diana are in London, they are faced with gun-wielding robbers in an alley, the first thing seen is a revolver pointed at them with the hammer fully cocked back, in the immediate next scene with the robber holding the gun, the hammer is not cocked, the robber then cocks it back.
  • The Fokker Eindecker monoplane Steve Trever used to escape the Germans was only used very early in the war,it was the first plane to shoot the machine gun between the propeller blades using an interrupter gear. They were obsolete and out of service 2 years before the U.S. entered the war..
  • After they save the town of Veld, 'Sammy' brings beers to Diana and Steve - he walks off with a glass still on the tray, and despite the fact that he tilts the tray, the mug doesn't move, and the liquid in the glass doesn't move.
  • Maru's book should have been damaged severely from being under water, despite it being in a leather pouch, but Steve hands it to Darnell in pristine condition.
  • Searchlights were used in World War I to create "artificial moonlight" to enhance opportunities for night attacks by reflecting beams off of clouds. The searchlights at the camp Diana and her friends infiltrate all-but advertise the Germans' presence to the enemy.
  • Hippolyta tells Diana that if she goes with Steve, she can never return home. In the comics, Diana returned home numerous times after her initial visit to "Man's World".
  • The glass plate photograph is not a negative image.
  • It is inconceivable that Ludendorff would have no armed security detail surrounding the palace and on the palace grounds, especially since the Kaiser is his guest. In real life, Diana and her team would never been allowed within such close proximity to the palace without being confronted.
  • The film not only has Diana recall incidents (Ludendorff at Maru's lab, etc.) that she had no way of knowing about, but Steve's recall of his escape from Maru's factory.
  • When Steve and Diana meet up with Etta at the boutique, Etta mentions Steve contacting her, yet there was no way he could have contacted her while he was on Themyscira.
  • General Erich Ludendorff was head of the German Imperial General Staff. It was he, not von Hindenberg, who in the Fall of 1918 advised the Kaiser to accept the armistice as the German army could not stop the combined Anglo-American army from taking Berlin. The reason for this mistake was probably that the producers thought Hindenberg's name would be more recognizable to the 21st Century movie goer than Ludendorff. At the end of WWI, Hindenberg was still a field commander.
  • In the original origin story, Diana competed against the other Amazons to become Wonder Woman, the emissary who will accompany Steve back to "Man's World". Not only is there is no competition, none of the Amazons ever say the words "Wonder Woman" -- odd for a film titled "Wonder Woman".
  • When the bearded German in the plaid jacket confronts Steve and Diana in the alley, his pistol is clearly seen as being cocked and ready to fire... and then they show him cocking his pistol.
  • The classic fallacy of the "ultimately destructive chemical" comes into play right before our eyes several times. Whatever the gas is that is so destructive to gas mask metal, glass, metal, and leather, doesn't affect the glass or the walls and doors inside the chambers where it is released. The chamber windows couldn't be plexiglass because it wasn't invented until 1930.
  • Replacing sulfur with hydrogen in mustard gas makes no scientific sense. Sulfur is the center of the symmetrical molecule with two covalent bonds. Hydrogen can only bond once.
  • In the trenches Steve says the battalion has been there a year. British battalions were put forward into the front trenches for a few days at a time then sent to the rear for recovery and rest. By the end of the War in 1918, the fighting is much more mobile. In German advances around April 1918 (Spring Offensive) British and French positions were pushed back several miles. And after July the Allies, reinforced with US troops and using improved tactics and tanks, have been advancing miles at a time in what is known as the "Hundred Days Offensive".
  • Hippolyta tells Diana that Zeus created Themyscira with his dying breath. Diana tells Steve that Zeus breathed life into her after Hippolyta sculpted her from clay.
  • The movie takes numerous liberties with Wonder Woman's original origin story, the most-obvious being moving the setting from World War II to World War I.
  • Aside from the fact that it has no telephone poles (at least the part of it that was liberated), it would have been impossible for Steve to telephone Morgan from Veld. Although the Post Office exchange in London had opened telephone service with Belgium in 1903, telephone service did not reach small towns and villages such as Veld until much later. In real life, Steve or a member of his team would have had to have traveled west to Olsene or north to Deinze to send Morgan a telegram.
  • Steve's watch falling into the ocean at the end credits shows a closeup of the dial with the second hand ticking, instead of sweeping. Ticking second hands only came into existence with the invention of quartz movements in the 1970's. Also, the seconds sub-dial on the watch is missing.
  • Wonder Woman's armoured boots have wedge heels in close ups and in peaceful scenes, but are flat during fights and stunts. This is especially obvious during the start of the occupied town fight: There are some close ups of her obviously high heeled boots deflecting bullets, immediately followed by slow motion scenes of her flipping and jumping in flat soled boots.
  • When Diana questions Hippolyta about where the god-killer weapon is kept, tan lines from sunglasses are visible on Hippolyta's face.
  • The movie takes many liberties with Wonder Woman's original origin story, the most-obvious being switching the setting from World War II America to World War I Europe.
  • The English subtitle during their multi-lingual "smack-down" has Sammy "say" to Diana in Mandarin: "I know Chinese, too, tricky girl". Chinese is not a language. However, that might be a mistake by the character.
  • Hippolyta tells Diana that Zeus created humans. In Greek mythology, Prometheus created humans.
  • It's never explained how Steve obtained the money to take Diana to a luxury boutique to buy her clothes.
  • Steve gives the Amazons his serial number as "8141921". The Army began to issue service (or serial) numbers in February 1918 to its enlisted personnel. Service numbers were not issued by the Army to its officers until 1920. Steve, a captain in the Army's American Expeditionary Forces, would not only not have such a ridiculously-high service number, he would not have a service number at all.
  • Ares tells Diana he was exiled from Olympus because he tried to warn the other gods about humans. In Greek mythology, Ares was exiled because his parents Zeus and Hera hated him.
  • Steve experiences pain when the Lasso is first used on him, yet shows no signs of pain when he wraps the Lasso around his wrist.
  • As in many Hollywood movies, the German spoken parts on the battle field and in the small towns are gibberish and make absolutely no sense. It is also fascinating to see that the German high command hosts a huge ball but not one character speaks German, instead everyone speaks English with a mock German accent. However, movies with a foreign language and subtitles are harder to follow, so this may be permitted as artistic licence.
  • There's an obvious man dressed as an Amazon by Antiope when the Amazons charge on the beach during the battle against the Germans.
  • Diana speaks English to Steve before she knows what language he speaks.
  • When Diana rescues Steve Trevor from drowning, the characters can be seen exhaling air on the way to the surface. Only reason to do that, is if they had been breathing from a tank of pressurized air while being underwater.
  • Steve escapes the Germans by jumping into a plane that has its engine idling while the pilot is standing next to it. WWI aircraft had no wheel brakes, and rotary engines had no throttle - they ran at full power or not at all. Power was controlled by the pilot using a button that turned off the ignition, "blipping" the engine in short bursts if full power was not needed. With no pilot on board, the engine would have been at full power and the plane would not have been stationary.
  • During the early training scene we see an armadillo on the steps. Armadillos are native only to the Americas and would never be on a Greek island.
  • Toward the end of the film, when Diana and company see the memorial photo of Steve Trevor, the emblem on the airplane shown is the "Hat in the Ring" of the 94th Aero Squadron, which was not formed until 1917.
  • Steve leads the gang into No Man's Land as Diana confronts the Germans, even though he knows full-well that the bullets being deflected off of her shield could hurt or kill them (the reason why the commander in the trenches holds his troops back).
  • The license plate of the truck which drives past Diana and Steve when they arrive in London begins with an "L". When the British Government issued vehicle license plates in 1903, it designated the letters "I" - "Z" to Ireland. The truck's license plate should begin with "A" for "London".
  • Steve tells Diana that the front is 400 miles, from the Alps to the North Sea. The Western Front was 440 miles long, from the French-Swiss border near Basel, Switzerland to Nieuwpoort, Belgium.
  • The back of the bullet Ludendorff's henchman shoots at Steve and Diana stops is dimpled. Dimpled bullet casings were not being produced in 1918.
  • Ludendorff's henchman follows Steve and Diana out of the boutique, then walks past them in the opposite direction.
  • The Amazons are discharged with keeping Ares in check, yet none of them know about World War I.
  • Steve tells the Amazons that 27 countries are involved in World War I, with 25 million dead. World War I involved 32 countries total, with over 16 million dead.
  • Contrary to what he tells Diana, Ares was expelled from Olympus because his parents Zeus and Hera hated him.
  • It would have been next-to-impossible for The Louvre to hire Diana and secure a work visa for her in real life because she is not a European.
  • Neither Hindenburg nor Ludendorff died during World War I. Rather the opposite, both lived for many years after, to be very elderly, and were alive in the 1930s playing major roles in the assumption of Adolf Hitler to power.
  • Erich Ludendorff was not a member of the German nobility and thus would not be addressed with the "von" in his name. However, throughout the film, he is constantly called "von Ludendorff"
  • Upon meeting The Chief for the first time Steve goes to give Chief a handshake. The Chief removes his right glove, gives Steve a handshake, hug's Charlie and hug's Sameer. Then moving to Diana he is shown removing his right glove again.
  • When Wonder Woman was in the trenches of No Man's Land, a lady with a baby told her that her village Veld was taken over by the Germans, but SHE WAS SPEAKING GERMAN, yet the village is supposedly in Belgium which is a French speaking country.
  • When Diana gets to the gassed out village, she just jumps off her horse and walks into the gas. When she returns to the horse (after arguing with Steve), it is secured to the ground by its rein.
  • An obvious male dressed as an Amazonian can be seen next to Antiope as they race to the beach during the first fight scene.
  • Diana doesn't know what a "secretary" is, even though she (like all of the Amazonians) are fluent in hundreds of languages.

Spoilers

  • In the final battle, when Diana is fighting Ares, there is a Mark V Tank, and then later one is picked up by Diana. The Mark V is a British design and is unusual to be found in a German staging area. However, this is military research facility and it is quite possible that the Germans have captured British tanks for research purposes and developing more effective weapons against it.
  • The movie takes many liberties with Erich Ludendorff's biography, from murdering his superiors with chemical weapons to his death date. However these are deliberate products of a plot that diverges significantly from real-life history in many other respects. They are not goofs.
  • In the climatic battle when Ares escapes from the Lasso of Hestia and throws Diana away with a blast, she falls on the ground with the lasso folded and fastened on her belt.
  • When the agent in the alley takes his cyanide pill and kills himself, Diana and Steve seem oblivious to the fact that there are 5 other agents still alive and unconscious in the alley, that they could get information from. They simply walk away, leaving the information these agents have undiscovered, and a bunch of German agents in the alleyway to go on their merry way once they wake up.
  • The movie starts, in Paris, in the morning as Diana goes to her office in the Louvre Museum. Upon looking at the photo sent to her by Bruce Wayne, her flashback memories ensue (i.e., the entire movie). When the flashback ends, it is now nighttime outside with her on the rooftop in her Wonder Woman outfit. This suggests that she spent the entire day thinking about all that happened 100 years ago. Even if she wool-gathered on the job, it shouldn't have taken all day.
  • When the crowd is cheering the armistice in the streets of London, one assistant is carrying a portrait of Kaiser Wilhelm II. As the German monarch, it makes little sense that anyone would be holding his portrait at a British celebration of his defeat.
  • There is no explanation as to how Diana learned to deflect bullets with such expertise, as guns seemed to be unknown to the Themyscirans until the Germans showed up on their doorstep. If she learned this skill from Antiope, then why didn't Antiope, the best warrior on the island, simply deflect the bullet that killed her? She clearly saw it coming.
  • Cyanide pills weren't used until WWII.
  • In "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", Diana tells Bruce: "A hundred years ago (1916), I walked away from mankind." "Wonder Woman" takes place in 1918.
  • After Diana defeats Ares, there is a man bent over the dead body of his comrade near her. In the wide shot of her standing among the soldiers, another dead body is to her right while the man and his dead comrade are gone.
  • Aside from moving the setting from World War II America to World War I Europe, the film takes numerous liberties with the original origin story: Themyscira didn't have a protective bubble and was undiscovered by Man until Steve crash-landed on it when his plane ran out of fuel as he pursued a Nazi; the Amazons had guns; the Amazons were created by Aphrodite after Ares taunted her with the success of his plan of keeping Man's World in perpetual war; Diana becomes "Wonder Woman" after defeating the other Amazons in a tournament decreed by Hippolyte, after counsel from Aphrodite and Athena, to earn the right to escort Steve back to Man's World; Hippolyte gives Diana the name "Diana" after the tournament; Diana, who has fallen in love with Steve, surrenders her heritage and her immortality in order to take Steve back to Man's World.
