Question: Why didn't Logan just cure Jean? Did she really have to die?

Answer: Logan barely made it to Jean in one piece - only his healing factor's keeping him alive. Even if he had a vial of the 'cure', which he doesn't, then it would never have survived the onslaught that he has to walk through to get to her.

Question: If Norman Osborn owns Oscorp, why is it that the board members decide that the company is going to be sold? Shouldn't it be Norman's decision?

Answer: No, that doesn't always follow. Osborn founded Oscorp, but that doesn't mean that he has sole control over the company. Presumably at some point in the past he's had to bring in outside investors, who have taken up seats on the board and have a degree of control over the company. If the directors, working together, possess a greater share of the company than Osborn himself does, then they can overrule him completely.

Question: What's the quote that Beast tries to say when he and Logan are fighting versus the mutants in Alcatraz? (The Churchill one)

Answer: The full quote is taken from a book written by the US author Winston Churchill (not to be confused with the British politician of the same name) called 'Richard Carvel'. The full quote, spoken by a character in the book, is "I fear there are times coming, my lad, when every man must choose his side, and stand arrayed in his own colours".

Question: Why did Professor X have a shot at Logan in the lab after Jean took off? He said something like 'I warned you'. As far as I can see, all Logan did wrong was brush Jean's cheek - and Xavier never told him not to.

Answer: Logan was upset with Charles for using mind control on Jean. When Jean escapes, Charles tells Logan this because now she is going to wreak havoc, proving the mind control was a necessary step after all.

Question: Is the dog's owner blind, or does he just have dark glasses? I'm asking because he said that he could have gone out to the yard and gotten the boys' ball if they had asked him, but how could he find it if he was blind?

Answer: Yes he was blind but he probably would have had one of them come with him to find it. He was just a little annoyed that they didn't just come to the front door and ask, they broke into his backyard.

Answer: Mr. Myrtle even explains that during a game a high fastball hit him in the head and he immediately went blind.

Question: Is there really a point to Arch-Angel being in this movie?

Question: When the nuns perform for the pope at the end of the film, the pope is seated in the balcony. I was wondering if this would actually happen in real life. Wouldn't the pope be down at the front of the church to celebrate the Mass? I suppose he could have gone up to the balcony just for the singing but that doesn't make much sense.

Answer: The Pope wasn't celebrating the Mass. He was just a guest.

Myridon

Answer: The event wasn't a Mass, it was a concert that the Pope requested. So neither he nor anyone else is there to worship; they're just there to hear the nuns sing.

Question: Is there a reason for Storm creating a storm when the X-Men talk to the president or is it just to make the scene more "spooky"?

Answer: The president is delivering a live address on television. The storm would make an excuse for the break in the signal.

Question: What's the song playing when Dewey and the band are going to the battle of the bands? It's in the bit when Mullins says that all the children are missing.

Answer: Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song.

The Immigrant Song is played when the band is returning from the auditions not when they are going to the Battle of the Bands.

Question: When you see the baker on the ship when it is sinking, he climbs over the railings. Surely when the ship split in half, the force should have knocked him off?

Answer: The baker is a real person who was the last live person to be pulled from the water. He was drunk and from his account of what happened he held on with all his might as the ship broke in half and then he rode the ship down, he even said he didn't even get his head wet. Because he was drunk no one knows the real story but the filmmakers put that in there to show his story. So no the force didn't knock him off, it didn’t knock Jack or Rose off either.

Disney-Freak

Question: The movie's whole point is that emotions have been stamped out, correct? So why does Taye Diggs smile almost constantly and shows obvious glee, and the Vice Councilor pounds the table in rage. Wouldn't the elite of the government be the ideal?

Answer: Because of their display of emotions it is clear that the elite are not taking their Prozium. If the idea of the emotionless society worked, then yes the elite should be taking their Prozium. However, this society obviously doesn't work and instead of being the solution to all man's problems, Prozium have just become a way of subduing the masses while the elite are free to do as they please.

Answer: I am sure Brandt is dosing every day. He even talks about getting his dose adjusted at the beginning of his partnership with Preston, stating: "I am a wary person, cautious by nature, always expecting the worst." And yet he definitely does seem to display anger and he smiles throughout the movie. In my opinion, the only member of the elite that is NOT taking the Proseum is "Father" since he admits as much to Preston at the very end of the movie, and he eradicated due process for offenders: He is a psychopath and so doesn't need Proseum to suppress emotions he doesn't have. Yet warning Preston at the end that he is "treading on his dreams," shows his narcissism. Maybe Brandt's "emotions" are merely acting, as he was from the start part of "Father's" plan to set Preston up. Therefore, he isn't really "feeling" at all: merely acting. One can act as though one is angry or sad or happy without actually feeling anything at all. I am sure that Brandt never came off his interval.

Question: Arty tells Rita that he knows her from somewhere. Where did he see or meet her?

Answer: Arti saw Rita at the Saloon earlier in the movie; Arti (as the cross-dressed redheaded woman) shoved Rita out of the line up to be choosen by Gen. McGrath.

Good Job!

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?

Spaceboy_007

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.

Question: As Robert Langdon sinks to his knees on top of the Louvre at the very end of the film over Mary Magdalene's tomb, what is the music playing? It's very uplifting and would logically be the last track on the soundtrack, but on listening to a sample on iTunes, the style of the tracks seem completely different.

KingofallSamurai

Chosen answer: The track is "Chevaliers de Sangreal" on the official soundtrack. It's the second to the last track (13).

Question: When Fozzie is singing the National Anthem, why does he sing 'America the Beautiful', and not 'The Star Spangled Banner' (which is the National Anthem of USA)?

Answer: Fozzie did not mean to sing the National Anthem. He simply wanted to sing something patriotic, since he was so moved by the scenery.

Matty Blast

Answer: Max and the others in her group were the X5 series.

Cybermoose

Question: Does anybody know if there are non-credited cameos in this film? During the scene on the beach, where the girl meets the two dancers, I think I see a young Jean-Claude Van Damme in the crowd wearing a black spandex suit and the kid from Revenge of the Nerds holding a soccer ball.

Answer: According to IMDB.com, the following actors were uncredited in this film: Michel Qissi, Passerby in first dance sequence - Lela Rochon, Extra in first scene - Kara Vallow, Break Dancer - Jean-Claude Van Damme, Passerby in First Dance Sequence.

Myridon

Question: What is the song playing right after O-Ren Ishii kicks off her shoes in the snow right before her and The Bride have their duel? I checked IMDB and the actual soundtrack but I can't find out which song it is.

Answer: If you're thinking about the song that starts with the clapping then it's called "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by Santa Esmeralda. On the soundtrack it's number 10.
