X-Men: Days of Future Past

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.

Factual error: The Mountain Dew logo seen in the stadium didn't come out until 1980, despite the film being set in 1973. The changes made in 1980 were subtle, but still distinct, especially the loss of the "wave" in the "D" and the smaller hole on the "a."

Factual error: Charles, Eric, Logan and Hank are seen flying in a Gulfstream II, tail number N540EA. This aircraft was manufactured in 1975. It didn't exist in 1973.

Trivia: When Magneto is pushing the steel rebar into Wolverine, it is twisted into a shape resembling the comic depiction of when he used his powers to remove the adamantium from Wolverine's skeleton in the comic X-Men #25.

Trivia: When Quicksilver is breaking Magneto out of prison he states that his mom used to know a guy that could control metal, implying that Magneto is Quicksilver's father, just like in the comics.

Future Charles Xavier: It is not their pain you are afraid of, it's yours, Charles. And as frightening as it may be, that pain will make you stronger, if you allow yourself to feel it, embrace it. It will make you more powerful than you ever imagined. It's the greatest gift we have, to bear their pain without breaking. And it's born from the most human power - hope. Please, Charles we need you to... Hope again.

Question: Were the headphones that Evan Peters wore in the Pentagon escape scene available in 1973?

Answer: If you're referring to the behind-the-head headphones, NO! They were introduced in 1997: http://coolmaterial.com/roundup/history-of-headphones/.

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.

Question: Who put Magneto in that plastic prison? Nixon and his cabinet don't seem know anything about mutants or see them as a threat (even after Cuba). Yet they put Magneto in a plastic prison as they know he can bend metal, so why wasn't anyone in the US government and most notably the President informed of this fact? It would have made Trask's appeals a lot more justified. Even likely sentinels would have been put into action a lot sooner rather then later.

Chosen answer: Government agents were previously aware of mutants - they are probably the same ones that imprisoned Magneto, and his attempt to prevent JFK's assassination was most likely covered up due to the revelation that Kennedy was a mutant. Magneto was already in prison by the time Trask pitched his Sentinel idea to the government, which is probably why the program wasn't instituted.
