Trivia: Stan Lee didn't make his customary cameo as he was in Toronto at the Fan Expo and couldn't attend the filming in Montreal. He joked that the producers thought it would boost box office figures to omit his cameo, because viewers would think they must have missed it and go watch the film again to check.

Trivia: Although it's not explained in the movie, it was revealed in behind-the-scenes interviews that Magneto was the one that reapplied the adamantium to Wolverine's claws. In the comics, Magneto actually removed the adamantium from Wolverine's skeleton.

Trivia: Peter Dinklage was cast partially because of his dwarfism. Dinklage has also stated that it informs the character, as Trask is a bit of a "mutant" himself because of his height, and he hates how it makes him different... thus furthering his hatred of the mutants.

Trivia: Getting the character Quicksilver into the film was a bit of a legal minefield. Both Marvel Studios and Fox wanted to use the character in their own projects, but there wasn't any sort of formal agreement over him. Eventually, a resolution was reached - Quicksilver could appear in "Days of Future Past," but with no references to "The Avengers" or the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And he could similarly appear in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," so long as there were no references to mutants or the X-Men.

Trivia: This was the first X-Men film to be Oscar nominated, for Best Visual Effects at the 2015 Academy Awards.

Factual error: When Magneto enters RFK stadium, a groundskeeper is lining a baseball field. RFK stadium did not host baseball in 1973, as the Washington Senators had moved to Texas to become the Texas Rangers after the 1971 season. In 1973, the only team playing in RFK regularly was the Washington Redskins of the NFL. In addition, the Paris Peace Accords were signed in January of 1973; so there wouldn't be green grass inside the stadium, regardless of what sports were being played there.

Chosen answer: Quicksilver in the comics listens to music at super speed because his mind always works that fast. Presumably, it's the same here.
