X-Men 3

Jean completely disintergrates Xavier, after killing Scott earlier in the movie. Magneto uses his powers to rip the Golden Gate bridge off the mainland and connect it to Alcatraz - where the brotherhood plan to kill Leech (the source of the cure). However - there are plenty of troops and guns - plastic cure darts which make Magneto's powers useless. Then the X-men arrive to hold the brotherhood back so that they can keep Leech safe. Storm electrocutes Callisto and Leech's powers causes Juggernaut to knock himself out. In the showdown between Iceman and Pyro, Iceman can't hold Pyro's flames and gets engulfed, but then he rises as the famous Iceman we remember from the comics (looking like he is made of ice) then knocks Pyro out. Beast then plunges a cure dart into Magneto and he is cured. Then Jean starts to disintergrate everyone who gets in her way. Logan makes his way towards her and his clothes disintergrate but his healing power manages to keep him alive. He yells "I love you" before plunging his claws into her. Back at school, Rogue returns and she is cured. She can touch Iceman now. Near the end of the movie, we see three gravestones - one for each Jean, Scott, and Xavier. The movie then moves on to a bunch of people playing chess and Magneto is by himself. His chess pieces are metallic and he moves his hand over one of them and it moves ever so slightly. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene. AFTER the credits, we see Dr Moira MacTaggart and a catatonic patient. He wakes and says, "Hello Moira," and she says, "Charles?". As Xavier had explained earlier on, he has now (possibly) put his consciousness into the catatonic patient.

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).

Question: At the very end of the movie, before the credits, with Magneto playing chess, did he manage to move or knock over the chess piece?It cut to black too quickly for me to see. Were they trying to show that the cure was not permanent?

Chosen answer: The piece did move, very very slightly. I'd argue that the cure is generally permanent, but perhaps with someone of Magneto's power the X gene can't be permanently suppressed, and will slowly regenerate itself through his body, gradually restoring him to full strength.
