X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Corrected entry: In many of the official trailers for this film (whether the teasers or the theatrical trailer itself) we are given glimpses of Lt. Col. Stryker's Class-A uniform. On the left shoulder, above the unit patch, he wears both a Ranger tab and an Airborne tab. This is incorrect and against uniform regulations (both now and decades ago, when the tabs were created along with those respective units). A soldier wears either the Ranger OR Airborne tab, but never both at once. If the Airborne tab is worn, it is understood that the soldier has passed Ranger school and thusly earned a Ranger tab to begin with. If only the Ranger tab is worn, this means that while the soldier passed Ranger school, he is not Airborne qualified (yet).

Correction: This is not correct; the tabs are worn concurrently all the time, and a soldier can be Airborne-qualified without being Ranger-qualified and vice-versa.


Corrected entry: In the final scenes, Wolverine takes off the jacket the old couple gave him. He later escapes the island in his undershirt. However, the jacket reappears in X-Men 1.

Correction: We see him get up and start to leave, but we never actually see him get off the island; he likely picked it up before he left.


Corrected entry: The way that Logan escapes from the adamantium chamber is different from as shown in X-Men 2. In that film Logan was covered in blood and walks out through a long aisle, then breaks the door and runs.


Correction: What we see in X2 are fragments of Logan's memories. What we see in this film is the actual event.


Corrected entry: There only exists two "Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas" signs in Las Vegas and the one Logan passes in the desert on his bike heading into the city does not exist there.


Correction: This means that the sign was a prop constructed for the movie, which falls under artistic license and is therefore not a mistake.

S. Ha

Revealing mistake: When the old couple who give Wolverine clothes are first driving towards their house, there is an aerial shot of them driving over a bridge. This is supposed to be set in Canada (drive on the right) but it was filmed in New Zealand (drive on the left). They are driving on the right but the arrow on the road is on the left side.

Trivia: In the scene where Stryker is in his lab looking at a little boy with two different colored eyes that seems to be frozen, he's actually looking at his son Jason that we meet officially in X2.

More trivia for X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Question: Does Colonel Stryker have more than one son? Assuming he is the same character played by Brian Cox in X-Men III, he has another son in a wheelchair that can't be Wade.

Allister Cooper, 2011

Chosen answer: First of all, Stryker was in "X2", not 3. Secondly, Wade was never his son. Stryker only has one son, named Jason. In this movie he can be seen encased in ice (to protect people from him), but it is obviously him (note his eye colour - one brown, one blue). It's far from unthinkable that sometime between this movie and "X2", his father's experiments on him put Jason in a wheelchair.
