X-Men: First Class

Continuity mistake: When Mystique is on the exercise table and Erik lifts the bar off her, her right leg changes from stretched out to bent from the different camera shots.

Amberer

Factual error: The establishing shot of Shaw's boat says they're in Miami. Yet in the scene, we see a very large suspension bridge in the background. The bridge is the St Simons Bridge leading from Brunswick to St. Simons, Georgia.

Continuity mistake: The position of the pig farmer's hand moves after Erik stabs it to the table towards the end of the scene.

Trivia: When Raven is making a pass at Erik in his bedroom he brushes her off by saying that she would need to be a little older. She then makes herself look older - this older woman is Rebecca Romijn, who played Mystique in the original 3 X-Men films.

Trivia: In the bar, when Wolverine dismisses Xavier's offer to join him, Hugh Jackman ad-libbed the line "go f*** yourself." The line was originally written "F*** off." Later, in "Days of Future Past", Xavier remembers the line as "F*** off", not "go f*** yourself." (00:48:15)

More quotes from X-Men: First Class


Question: Why is Charles okay with Mystique joining Magneto's side? They're supposed to be brother and sister but he doesn't even attempt to talk her out of it.

THGhost

Chosen answer: He's not okay with it, but he knows that Erik's views appeal strongly to her. To all intents and purposes, she's already made her decision - to try to stop her would likely only lead to an argument, which is not how he'd want them to part. Plus there is the somewhat major side issue that Charles has just been shot, so it's not really the right time for a discussion on conflicting mutant philosophies.

Question: Charles Xavier knew about Erik Lehnsherr's past, but did he know about those three people he killed at the bar?

raph

Chosen answer: Xavier can read minds, so it's assumed he knows about the murders.

Jason Hoffman

Question: If Charles was shot in this movie, becoming paralyzed, how did he get the ability to walk by the time the beginning of X-Men: The Last Stand came around?

Christian Hannah

Chosen answer: The short answer is events in this film negate what happened in X-Men 3 as well as Origins: Wolverine or one could say this film essentially became a reboot. Since no real answer seems to be given, and since the X-Men 3 film makers didn't know Charles would later be shown to become paralyzed prior to visiting Jean, they had no need to explain why he's walking. One can only speculate on the possible ways Charles walks in these 2 previous movies (and this isn't taking into account the timeline shift from X-Men Days of Future Past). We do know from DOFP that Hank/Beast created a serum for Charles that allowed him to walk, albeit without his powers. Hank could have kept working on this serum which would allow Charles to walk and still maintain some of his powers. Then at some point Charles stopped taking the serum, confining him to the wheelchair once again. Either because they ran out of the serum or because Charles came to the realization he needs to accept what happened and not hide it, especially if he's teaching children to accept who they are. Charles also has the power of "astral projection" and the power to appear in the minds of others, so Charles could simply not be there at Jean's house, but is back home, in his wheelchair.

Answer: It is shown in X-Men: Days of Future Past that Hank made a serum that can help him walk.
