Continuity mistake: When Magneto lands the Golden Gate Bridge on the island, as it hits land it is still very light. When the Brotherhood start to walk toward the island, it cuts to a wide shot of them still walking on the bridge, and it's suddenly dark.

Continuity mistake: When Logan pulls out the two horns from his stomach, the camera shows two holes on the singlet as part as his wounds. In the following scenes, the holes of the t-shirt have recovered (I know Logan has healing ability, but not his clothes).

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Angel is about to be given the cure, there is a change in the hypodermic syringe used to administer the drug. As the camera shot switches between views of Angel being strapped in and Dr. Rao preparing the injection, the first view shows the hypodermic needle cover already having been removed. The camera switches to Angel then back. Dr. Rao, having completed the preparation for the injection, proceeds to remove the cover which had already been removed in the first shot. (00:32:30)

Continuity mistake: When Angel is about to get the "cure" in the San Francisco skyscraper, you can see the reflection of San Francisco in the outside of the building - a huge hill with lots of buildings, and a large white tower at the very top. But when the camera switches to inside the building, looking outside, the view has suddenly changed to a view of the bay, and Alcatraz.

Continuity mistake: When Magneto and Charles Xavier are in Jean Grey's house (when she is older and making everything around her float in the air), watch the book shelf when it falls down. At least 25 books fall out of the top shelf and in the next few shots you see that the number of books fallen has minimized greatly. (00:45:00)

Continuity mistake: When Wolverine approaches Xavier's grave, the shadow of his head falls onto the grave. Then, after Jean has stopped telepathically speaking to him, the shadow of his head is left of the grave, even though Wolverine is in the same position. There was not enough time for his shadow to have moved that much.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on Alcatraz, Collosus throws Wolverine at Magneto. After Wolverine is dragged along the floor and Magneto says something to him, Wolverine looks up at Magneto from the wrong direction (this is explained when you look at the deleted scenes but doesnt fit in the final cut).

Continuity mistake: When Magneto is moving the cars on the bridge at the end, a reddish van in the center of the road is moved to the side. A couple of shots later, the same van is again moved from the center to the side.

Continuity mistake: After Magneto declares war, troops are briefly seen exiting from a bus with brown boots. As they line up, you can see the boots have been replaced with black rubber ones.

Continuity mistake: When Warren dives out of the skyscraper window after refusing the cure, in the shot from his POV, as he starts to fall, you can see lots of broken glass falling with him. When it cuts to the exterior shot of him falling, there is no falling glass.

Continuity mistake: The position of the cure needles that Hank/Beast jabs into Magneto's chest change from a circular pattern to a straight line between shots. The line is oriented differently a few minutes later as well. (01:28:55 - 01:29:40)

Eric Lensherr: Charles Xavier did more for mutants than you will ever know. My single greatest regret is that he had to die for our dream to live.

Trivia: The combat simulation the X-Men are running on their first appearance in the film features the dread Sentinel robots. Originally, these were meant to appear in the second movie already, but the idea was scrapped. The simulation also bears a close reference to the parallel comic storyline and later movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, where the Sentinels rebelled against humanity, killed most of Earth's superheroes and erected a totalitarian regime in the US.

More trivia for X-Men 3

Question: I have a few questions. Firstly the latest X-men film showed that although looking only 30ish, Mystique is as old as Professor X. That can only be cause of her mutation. So why after she was cured didn't she age into an older woman? Secondly, if Wolverine had been cured (assuming it would even have worked, given his healing ability), would it have killed him? Given his age and all the adamantium inside him, i couldn't imagine it, but am I wrong?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Both Wolverine and Mystique's mutations cause them to age slowly; effectively the normal human body deterioration is slowed for them, giving them a younger physical age than their actual chronological age. If that mutation was removed, then the factor that slowed their ageing would no longer function, but they wouldn't abruptly "catch up" with their actual age, they would simply possess a body at their current physical age which would age as a normal human after that point. As for the adamantium lacing Logan's bones, were his healing factor removed, he might well swiftly suffer extreme levels of toxic shock, which would likely prove fatal.
