** Supposedly, Aladdin's line "All this for a loaf of bread?" is a nod to [[Theatre/LesMiserables Les Miserables]], in which the entire story starts because Valjean stole a loaf of bread.

*** The way young [[XMenFilmSeries/{{Magneto}} Erik Lehnsherr]] unleashes his UnstoppableRage and BigNo over his mother's death will remind you of DarthWiki/DarthVader's own UnstoppableRage and BigNo in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' over his wife's death. They are even provoked by their respective film's {{Big Bad}}s! Also, Darth Vader in his anger crushed an {{autodoc}} by telekinetically squeezing its metal body, while young Erik in his anger killed (or incapacitated?) two Nazi {{mook}}s by telemagnetically squeezing their metal helmets into their heads.

** Yet another exchange of {{Shout Out}}s links the ''Elm Street'' franchise to the ''Film/{{Critters}}'' films. In ''[[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors Dream Warriors]]'', the patient who gets her face shoved through the TV was watching ''Critters'' before she dozed off. Later, one of the alien bounty hunters in ''Critters 2'' is narrowly prevented from mimicking a poster of Freddy. This incidentally creates a RecursiveReality situation, where each film franchise exists in the 'Verse of the other, as in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1990'', Raphael exits a theater playing ''Critters'' and says "Who come up with this crap?"

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'':
*** Creator/JamesMcAvoy has said in numerous interviews that Charles' suits were ripped off from the iconic outfits worn by Detective James "Sonny" Crockett from ''Series/MiamiVice'', a popular TV series which made its debut in 1984, one year after the events of this film. Don Johnson's wardrobe on the show ignited a fashion trend, so in the movie-verse, it appears that Xavier was ahead of his time style-wise. Creator/MichaelFassbender [[http://www.businessmirror.com.ph/michael-fassbender-and-the-coming-apocalypse/ mentions]] that Erik has a suit which was inspired by Detective Ricardo "Rico" Stubbs, Crockett's partner.
*** Nightcrawler owns a jacket which is a replica of Music/MichaelJackson's from the famous ''Music/{{Thriller}}'' music video, which is somewhat recursive because it resembles his costume from the comics.
*** When Quicksilver is talking to his mother, his T-shirt has a cartoon print of ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'', and he plays VideoGame/PacMan. He also switches the TV's channels from the news to ''Series/KnightRider''. He later changes into a Music/{{Rush}} T-shirt, and during the denouement of the film, he's seen in an Creator/{{Atari}} one. While rescuing Xavier's students, Peter takes a moment to perform the MoonwalkDance.
*** The ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?" plays on Ororo's TV set.
*** While in class, Jubilee wears a Music/{{Journey}} T-shirt.
*** While sending the students back to bed during Jean's nightmare, Charles chides them [[Film/MaryPoppins "Spit spot."]]
*** ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' is shown to be playing at the movie theater during the mall sequence.
*** A barrage of missiles being launched simultaneously brings to mind ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''.
*** Like Professor X, Leto Atreides II in ''Series/ChildrenOfDune'' (who is also portrayed by Creator/JamesMcAvoy) is captured, [[spoiler:placed on a slab against his will, is too weak to fight against his captor, and endures a mental assault which almost causes him to lose his identity]].
*** Singer confirmed that the scene when Angel gets his wings back from Apocalypse was inspired by the transformation scene in ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon''.
*** In the OpeningMonologue, the quote "Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun" refers to the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek myth]] of Icarus and Daedalus.
*** Xavier is a benevolent, wise and beautiful leader with brilliant blue irises, mind-reading and telepathic communication abilities who temporarily gets DrunkOnTheDarkSide with BlackEyesOfEvil when exposed to evil power, just like the Elf matriarch Galadriel in ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring]]''.
*** [[http://cdn1-www.comingsoon.net/assets/uploads/gallery/bts-x-men-apocalypse/z_0.jpg The character poster for Apocalypse]] evokes the Yorick's skull scene from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''.
*** [[https://in.movies.yahoo.com/post/137684622919/x-men-apocalypse-on-set-of-the-darker-heavier Singer shot a scene]] which was directly influenced by a seminal moment from ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.
--->We're watching a bald man loom out of the shadows in a stone room, somewhere in a violent foreign land. Emotion wracks his face, and a solitary tear trickles down his cheek. We brace ourselves to hear the iconic line "The horror, the horror" before remembering we're not actually on the set of ''Apocalypse Now'', but ''X-Men: Apocalypse''. We're not seeing Marlon Brando shoot a key scene as Colonel Kurtz, but James [=McAvoy=]'s Professor X. His head's shaved for accuracy, not madness.
*** A very sly one to ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'': in that film, in speculating about the photos of what turn out to be the inlets and outlets for the submarine's stealth propulsion system, Jack Ryan asks "Would you launch an ICBM horizontally?" In this movie, during the nuclear disarmament scene, we indeed see a Soviet Typhoon-class sub launching [=ICBM=]s horizontally.
*** "You're going to need a bigger house." Looks like ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' was on TV somewhere when Apocalypse assimilated the world's culture.

** In ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', Mystique scrolls through a list of mutants on a computer, searching for SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}. ''[[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters All]]'' [[http://thefilmexperience.net/storage/2000s/x2-strykercomputer.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1307909380497 of those names]] are from [[Comicbook/XMen the comics]]. While all of those names were in a single folder, [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Franklin]] [[RealityWarper Richards]] had a folder all his own.
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':\\\

A neon sign at a bar says "Marv's Beer," a reference to writer Marv Wolfman.\\\
The Oxford pub, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_%28comic%29 The Eagle]]. Which doubles as a reference to the reference to the Eagle Awards (named after the magazine) which the X-Men won in the 1970s and 1980s.\\\
The neon sign at the bar where they find Angel is "Atomic"--which is a reference to how mutants were called "Children of the Atom" in the comics. Also an example of ShownTheirWork, since Las Vegas in the '60s and '70s was famous for the nearby nuclear tests, and everything was named after the famous atom; drinks, shows, and nightclubs.\\\
A memory-erasing kiss? Xavier must be taking lessons from [[Franchise/{{Superman}} another superhero]]...\\\
When Hank first demonstrates his power, he ends up [[Film/SpiderMan1 hanging upside-down, right at Raven's eye level]]. Lampshaded, when Raven exclaims: "You're amazing!"\\\
When the POV shifts to show what Xavier sees when he's looking through another person's eyes, the effects are staggeringly similar to the ones used in ''Film/DarkCity'' when Rufus [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] after getting administered with the scientist's ability-enhancing serum. Right down to perspective morphs and a silvery fringe around the frame.\\\
Erik's magnetism-using gestures run the gamut from [[Franchise/TheMatrix Neo]] to [[Franchise/StarWars Obi-Wan Kenobi.]]\\\
"Beast, open the bomb bay doors!"\\\
Shaw does this often, what with his "children of the atom" comments, his BreakingSpeech to the kids where he tells them they can [[BadassCreed protect a world that hates and fears them]] or live like "kings and queens" in classic Hellfire Club style, his whole Bond Villain schtick, and of course the [[ChekhovsGun helmet]].\\\
According to the comic book writers who originally named it, the Hellfire Club was inspired by an episode of the 1960s TV series ''Series/TheAvengers''. Which, of course, shared its title with the other major Marvel superhero team of the 1960s, ComicBook/TheAvengers.\\\
The war room is almost identical to the one from ''Film/DrStrangelove''.\\\
Shaw wears a [[TheSixties swinging 60s]] era ascot during his meeting with Soviet generals. In the comics, Shaw (and the rest of the Hellfire Club) habitually wore 18th century period attire which included lace ascots or cravats.\\\
The camera angle when we first see a close-up of Charles holding the gun is reminiscent of the final scene from ''Film/{{Wanted}}'' (which also stars Creator/JamesMcAvoy).
** ''Film/TheWolverine'':\\\
[[Film/DiamondsAreForever A character gets thrown out a hotel window only to land in a swimming pool, complete with "I didn't know there was a pool" (paraphrased) offhand remark by the attacker(s)]].\\\
Wolverine accidentally calls Noburo "[[Film/{{Alien}} Nostromo]]".\\\
The film begins with a Japanese man getting a wound from an atom bomb on his cheek that never heals. This happens to the protagonist of the famous Japanese novel about the Hiroshima bombing, Black Rain (Kuro Ame).
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':\\\
NakedOnArrival from a bleak future dominated by a RobotWar, the time-shifted Wolverine demands a goon hand over his clothes and vehicle. This is a nod to ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''. Although in this case, it wasn't the time-traveler who was naked, but the body he was jumping ''into'' that happened to be naked at the time.\\\
The Sentinels from the BadFuture act like more aerodynamic versions of the [[Film/{{Thor}} Asgardian Destroyer]].\\\
An episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' appears on a screen-one about TimeTravel, and in a film with [[Creator/PatrickStewart Captain Picard]] in it.\\\
The villain planning to stop humanity's wars by uniting them against an enemy that isn't actually an enemy is a reference to ''Film/{{Watchmen}}''\\\
There's a scene from the 2003 ''Children of Dune'' miniseries where Leto Atreides II (played by Creator/JamesMcAvoy) collapses to the ground in agony because he is overwhelmed by the voices in his head. A woman then asks him, "Are you crazy yet?", which mirrors Charles' belief that he had lost his mind after the onset of his telepathy. Moreover, Leto has Bene Gesserit training, so his use of the Voice to control another person's behaviour is virtually identical to Xavier's powers.\\\
Magneto quotes Creator/JamesBrown's "The Payback" during his rescue.

powers.
*** When Logan awakes in the [[spoiler:revised future and talks to old Charles, he says, "You did it," and Xavier replies, "Did what?" This exchange is similar to Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Albus Dumbledore's exchange (except the duo said "We did it" to Dumbledore) after the teen duo did the SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong which also involved TimeTravel in ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban''.]]
*** The ending is reminiscent of the end of ''Film/BackToTheFuture Part One''. [[spoiler:In both films, the protagonist wakes up in his room in a happier altered future, is initially confused by his surroundings, and is specifically asked by another character "Is everything alright?"]]
*** When
Magneto quotes Creator/JamesBrown's "The Payback" during yells at Charles on the plane, the room goes dark and Creator/MichaelFassbender channels even more of Creator/IanMcKellen than usual, in a clear reference to the scene where Gandalf intimidates Bilbo into cooperating with him in ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Fellowship of the Ring]]''.
*** In their commentary, Creator/BryanSinger and Simon Kinberg admitted that they were inspired by '70s-era {{Conspiracy Thriller}}s when they came up with the idea of the military and Trask Industries covering up the experimentation and murder of mutant soldiers under the fog of war.
*** Bullets suspended in midair being picked up by a character brings to mind ''Film/TheMatrix''.
*** There are a lot of similarities between the younger Xavier and Will Graham from ''Series/{{Hannibal}}''. Will's "pure empathy" is not unlike Charles' mind-reading power (and since Will's brain contains an abnormally high number of mirror neurons, this would make him a genetic mutant), their BlessedWithSuck "gift" can cause them a tremendous amount of agony, and they're both tormented by a love-hate relationship with a violent man of equal intelligence who has physically harmed them (Lecter for Graham, Magneto for Xavier). As a bonus, Hugh Dancy looks somewhat like Creator/JamesMcAvoy (both actors are brown-and-wavy-haired, blue-eyed and possess PrettyBoy-like features), so after ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'''s debut, Dancy became a very popular fan casting choice for Brian Xavier should the ''Film/XMen'' film series ever decide to show Charles' father in a flashback.
