Trivia: This is revealed on the bonus disc of the DVD. Ronnie Drake (Iceman's brother) is the one who alerts the police of the fact that there are mutants in his house when Wolverine, Rogue and Pyro are there with Bobby. On the DVD, there is a section called 'Galleries' which has a shot of Ronnie's bedroom. On his wall, there is a big poster with 'Mutants Suck.' written on it, and another which says 'Is he one of them?'
Trivia: The entire computer list that Mystique is looking at on Stryker's computer are mutants from the Marvel universe: Guthrie (2) are brother and sister Sam and Paige, Cannonball and Husk, Keniucho Harada is The Silver Samurai; Garrison Kane is Kane from the Weapon X program; Remy LeBeau is Gambit; Eric Lansherr is Magneto, though it is supposed to be spelt Erik Lehnsherr; Artie Maddicks is Leech; Jamie Madrox is Multiple Man; Xi'an Coy Mahn is Karma; Maximoff (2) are the brother and sister Pietro and Wanda, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch of the Avengers, both are the children of Magneto; Kevin McTaggart is Proteus, Son of Moira McTaggart; Danielle Moonstar is Mirage, Psyche; Ororo Munroe is obviously Storm; Franklin Richards (You only see the "Lin Richards"), the son of Reed Richards (Mr Fantastic) and the Invisible Woman (Sue Richards).
Trivia: All of the security guards in the file (with the exception of Mitchell Laurio, who appears in the comics as well) are people who worked on the X-Men 2 film. For example, Tom DeSanto is the executive producer, M. Dougherty and D. Harris are writers, and L. Donner is a producer.
Trivia: In the scene just after Pyro has attacked the cops at Iceman's house and Jean & Storm have come to save them (Woverine, Pyro, Rouge and Iceman) if you look at the cop car on the left side of the screen, after Iceman looks back to see his family, the word 'police' is blackened exept for the letters 'ice'
Trivia: In the scene where Jean and Ororo track Nightcrawler down, he speaks a few sentences in German, but no translation is provided. The sentences mean: "Get out. I am the messenger of Satan (the Germans usually call Satan "the Devil", just as Nightcrawler does). I am a spawn of evil."
Trivia: Among the many easter eggs in the movie referencing other mutants, Singer placed an homage to popular X-man Archangel, who had been scrapped in early drafts of both X-Men and X-Men 2. Notice in the fight scene between Lady Deathstrike and Wolverine...up on the wall there are schematics and prototype sketches of Archangel's metal wings.
Trivia: When the soldiers first enter the mansion, and the little kid who doesn't sleep goes to investigate - listen to the commentary on the nature documentary he's watching - it fits with events quite nicely for a while, along the lines of "With the mother away, the children are left defenseless..." It goes a bit awry once it starts with "the centipede is deadly", but you get the idea.
Trivia: Two random similarities to "Edward Scissorhands" in this movie. At the start, Nightcrawler looks almost identical to Edward when he's robbing the house - pale, marks on his face, blue baseball cap. Also when Edwards emerges from the house, he's holding his scissors out towards the police, who think they're weapons he's using to threaten them - exactly the same thing happens in this with Wolverine. Deliberate, or just coincidence?

Trivia: May be obvious to some people, but I missed it the first time around. Towards the end, when Jean Gray's outside, Nightcrawler says that she's stopping him going out there. When he tries to teleport, you can briefly see the smoke appear round him then disappear as he gets blocked.

Trivia: In the comic, Xavier had a son named David Haller who became known as Legion. He was mentally disturbed, suffering from multiple personality disorder. He had several different psychic powers, and each personality controlled a different power. One of them was a young girl. His left eye was green, and his right eye was blue. In the movie, Stryker has a son named Jason. He is mentally disturbed or catatonic. He has psychic powers. In the illusion he creates for Xavier, he appears as a young girl. His left eye is green. His right eye is blue. It would seem that this is supposed to be the movie's version of Legion. Some people also say that Jason is Mastermind aka Jason WyneGarn (or Jason Stryker, I guess in the movie) who has the telepathic ability to create illusion that are completely believable in every way, sight smell, sound.
Trivia: In this movie and its sequel, Hank McCoy (the Beast) is introduced. In X2, in the sequence where Xavier inadvertently attacks the mutants around the world, it was originally decided that McCoy should be shown mutating into the blue-furred form in which he appears in X3. The idea was dropped from the final cut, however.
