Factual Mistake
In the very beginning of the movie, when Black Widow is being interrogated, the exterior shots shows a billboard with supposed Russian writing. However, the actual writing makes no sense and is just a collection of random Cyrillic letters. Additionally, the locomotives of the train seen passing by are all new American mainline freight locomotives, and would never be used in Russia or Eastern Europe in general.

Factual Mistake
In the theatrical version, the company NAMCO Bandai is misspelled as NAMECO Bandai in the credits. The spelling is corrected on DVD and Blu-ray.

Factual Mistake
S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjets flying at night are shown with red navigation lights on each wingtip. There should be a green light on the right (starboard) wing, and a red one on the left (port) wing. These are known as Right-of-Way lights, and follow the same rules that were established for watercraft in the mid-1800s.

Factual Mistake
When Dr. Selvig is using tongs to pick up the Iridium cylinder, the digital scale reads "0.38 kg" (380g or about 13 1/2 ounces), but the density of iridium means that there would only be 17 cubic centimeters (less than two cubic inches) of the metal present, and the cylinder is clearly MUCH larger than that.

Factual Mistake
The German police shown in the Stuttgart-scene have yellow light bars. In reality all German emergency vehicles have blue flashing lights. Yellow flashing lights are reserved for roadside assistance and construction machinery.

Miscellaneous
Where the little girl in Kolkata searches for Dr. Banner, the Bangla signboards have typographical errors: 'Chemist' was written in Bangla like 'ka-me-sit', 'Watch Service' appeared as 'ghardir da-o-kan. Even 'Centre' was partially seen to be written as 'ka-ne...'. This most possibly occurred due to transliteration from english to Bangla unicode.

Miscellaneous
When Loki blasts the Police car, causing it to nose-skid then flip, as it comes to rest you can see some gas still escaping from the location of the compressed air cannon under the rear of the car.

Miscellaneous
In the end-credits scene, the Shawarma restaurant is indicated by signs, t-shirts, and a chalkboard with shawarma, kabob and vegetarian specials listed. However, the back-lit menu at the top clearly shows steak, sandwiches, soups, Thai chicken salad (among others) and onion rings, and no indication of shawarma, gyros or other middle eastern/Mediterranean fare.

Errors in Geography
The reception scene said to take place in Stuttgart, Germany, was clearly filmed in the U.S. (Cleveland, in fact) There are no such skyscraper buildings in Stuttgart as seen in the background. All S-Class Mercedeses shown are U.S.-spec-models, easily recognizable by the yellow front side marker lights. Furthermore, Königstrasse is mainly a shopping street, and Königstrasse 22, in particular, is a shopping arcade containing, among a dozen shops, two cinemas. There is no building in the vicinity higher than half a dozen floors, and Königstrasse 22 opens on the street, not on a square. Furthermore, Stuttgart has no elevated trains, which can be seen in the background of the square scene.

Continuity
The number of soldiers accompanying Hawkeye during his attack on the Helicarrier is inconsistent. We see 7 soldiers with Hawkeye when they enter through the grate on the deck, however we see a total of 8 during the subsequent scenes. 2 are killed by Nick Fury and 1 by Maria Hill in the initial shooting on the bridge. We then see another 3 at the damaged engine fighting Captain America (he knocks one out and throws another off the ship - the final one is knocked out by Iron Man). Another soldier is shot by Fury in a subsequent bridge scene and finally the 8th is subdued by Coulson in the detention area.

Continuity
During Tony's entire conversation with Loki at the top of Stark Tower, Tony's chest piece isn't illuminated. In the previous scene when Tony and Steve figure out where Loki is operating from, the chest piece can be clearly seen under Tony's shirt.

Continuity
During the final battle, Iron Man explodes a "Leviathan" - one of the big Chitauri monsters - from the inside, labeling his attack 'Jonah-style'. He falls and hits a cab, which stops him. The camera angle then changes, and the cab is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity
Throughout the film, Tony Stark's chest piece changes between being visible through his shirt and hidden by the material.

Continuity
During the tunnel chase between Agent Hill and Loki, after her vehicle is spun around and Loki has passed her, there are two scenes in which the hole in her windshield is not there.

Continuity
During the battle in New York, the scratches and damage on Captain America's shield change multiple times.

Continuity
Agent Phil comes to the Stark Tower to meet Tony. Pepper hands him her glass of champagne. During Pepper's conversation with Agent Phil, he holds the glass by the bowl, but in one shot he is holding it by the stem.

Continuity
Before the final battle begins, Tony reaches at the tower and finds Loki there. Tony goes and gets a glass of liquor. Loki approaches him, grabs him and throws him. The glass is no where to be seen.

Continuity
When Capt. America is in the gym punching the second bag, the bag has no tape around the middle. When he and Fury begin talking, a close up of the bag has duct tape around the center. Next it switches back to clean again.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When one of the computer operators resumed playing Galaga, the sound effect used is for an enemy ship attempting to capture the player's ship. Instead, this sound effect was used for normal gameplay.

Audio/Video Mismatch
In the vision sequence when Loki projects himself to The Other, The Other says "The Chitauri grow restless" and his face is seen unmoving. When speaking his next line in the same shot, his face is clearly animated.
Trivia:
Jeremy Renner was trained by Olympic archers for his role as Agent Clint Barton a.k.a. Hawkeye in this film.

Robert Downey Jr kept food hidden all over the lab set and apparently nobody could find where it was, so they just let him continue doing it. In the movie, that's his actual food he's offering and when he was eating, it wasn't scripted. He was just hungry.

The first couple of cuts of the movie came back from the MPAA rated R. One of the key objections was Coulson’s big death scene, which is quite violent and disturbing. The creative team had to go back and make adjustments until they finally got the desired PG-13 rating.

J.A.R.V.I.S is an acronym for "Just A Rather Very Intelligent System." Interestingly the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S, Paul Bettany, recently admitted he has never seen any 'Iron Man' or 'Avengers' film.

Chris Evans once sent a text message to Clark Gregg simply saying “Assemble”, which is the tagline for the movie. Gregg stated that this was his favorite text message ever sent to him.

Scarlett Johansson was initially unsure about making 'Avengers Assemble' because it seemed like such a "ridiculous" idea.
