!!The Movie



* Meta-Example: ''Days of Future Past'' managed to repair the disastrous continuity errors within the ''X-Men'' Movie-verse. As of this film, there have been 7 films in the saga:
** ''[[Film/XMen1 X-Men]]'' appears to be in continuity with ''Future Past'', as Future!Charles tells Logan how he helped Logan regain his lost memories, which occurred at the conclusion of the first film. Some Weapon X footage is used from this film as well.
** ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' is most definitely in continuity, as it shows scenes from the Weapon X experiments at Alkali Lake.
** As is ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', which shows clips of Phoenix and her death.
** ''[[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine Origins]]'' is in continuity due to a flashback of Victor Creed stepping on Logan's bone claws. Some Weapon X footage was used from this film.
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/TheWolverine'' are also in continuity, as they lead directly into ''Future Past''; the former being the prequel to it, the latter leading directly into the future scenes.
** [[spoiler:It also wipes out all these continuities at the climax of the film, and ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' seems to confirm this so this is really a moot point now.]] The original trilogy at least.



---> '''2023 Professor X''': The future: a dark, desolate world, a world of war, suffering, loss on both sides. Mutants, and the humans who dared to help them, fighting an enemy we cannot defeat. Are we destined down this path, destined to destroy ourselves like so many species before us? Or can we evolve fast enough to change ourselves, change our fate? Is the future truly set?
* Just seeing the beloved casts of characters from both the ''X-Men Trilogy'' and ''First Class'' [[CrossOver working together]] in the same movie is awesome in itself.
* It's very subtle, but Creator/PatrickStewart's performance [[spoiler:in the AlternateTimeline]] is different from his previous scenes and the rest of the franchise. He is essentially playing an elderly version of Creator/JamesMcAvoy's character, capturing a small part of the latter's bubbly exuberance. (Charles is in his late eighties/early nineties in 2023, so his energy level is obviously a lot lower than that of his 1962 self.) Stewart's Professor X has traditionally been more serious and guarded, but the one Wolverine speaks to near the end of the movie is more light-hearted and open. Stewart had stated in an interview not long after ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' was released that he had enjoyed [=McAvoy=]'s portrayal of the young Xavier, and wished that he could emulate some of it should he ever have the chance to play the character again. Well, the actor did exactly that!

* Magneto is likely at or around the peak of his mutant power in this film, and ''it shows.'' Among other things, he '''levitates the entirety of RFK Stadium, takes it with him four miles across town in mid-air, drops it around the White House, whilst controlling multiple Sentinels.''' And he doesn't even seem to be straining himself. And let's not forget his contribution to the final battle in the future prior to getting wounded. He hurls the X-Men's jet into the throng of the Sentinel ships and uses Bishop and Storm's powers to detonate it, taking out what seems to be a good chunk of the Sentinel forces and buying Logan extra time.

* A single, cool line of dialogue: After Cerebro shatters due to young Xavier's inability to use his telepathy properly, Beast goes off to restore the electricity leaving Charles and Wolverine. Charles has his conversation with his future self, on Wolvie's encouragings, and gains the strength of resolve he needs to use Cerebro and control himself properly. As he recovers in the present, we see Beast jogging back up to them as the lights flicker again.
