10 Things You Might Not Know About X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST (2014)

"X-Men: Days of Future Past", the movie where mutants decided one timeline wasn’t enough and dabbled with time-travel. Who wouldn't love a bit of timey-wimey mutant action? Without further ado, let's rewind time and uncover some trivia.

Hugh, But No Hug: The ever-charming Hugh Jackman said in interviews that this is the only X-Men film where he doesn't don Wolverine's signature tank top. Clearly, the past had better fashion sense!

Singer Returns!: Bryan Singer returned to direct an X-Men film after an 11-year gap. They say distance makes the heart grow fonder. And for mutants? Just add a little time-travel into the mix.

A Game of X-Men: Peter Dinklage played the villainous Dr. Bolivar Trask. From Westeros to an alternate 1970s - Dinklage sure knows how to pick 'em. No dragons here, but plenty of mutants.

Floating Magneto: Remember Magneto lifting a stadium? No CGI levitation tricks here; they built a 400-foot model of RFK Stadium. Talk about commitment to the craft!

X-tended Cut: An extended cut called "The Rogue Cut" was released on Blu-ray, adding 17 minutes to the film, including scenes with Anna Paquin's Rogue. Because why have one timeline when you can have two... versions of a film?

Quicksilver's Quick Scene: The Pentagon kitchen scene, where Quicksilver runs around redirecting bullets and tasting soup, took a month and a half to film. Seems a lot for a scene that lasts... well, quicker than Quicksilver.

Familiar News Reporter: The news reporter at the beginning is played by actual reporter and anchor of CNN's The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer. Maybe the situation room had a mutant situation?

Nixon the Mutant-Lover?: The President in the film is unmistakably Richard Nixon. While this isn't exactly historical accuracy (shock!), it sure adds a sprinkle of nostalgic charm.

Halle’s Minimal Berry-ing: Halle Berry's role was significantly reduced due to her pregnancy. Storm's scenes had to be shot quickly, so if you felt a gust of wind, that was probably her rushing by!

The JFK Connection: Magneto was accused of bending the bullet that assassinated JFK. This was an inventive way to intertwine real history with mutant history. The magic bullet theory just got a magnetic twist!

There you have it! "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is not just about dashing between timelines but also weaving together an intricate tapestry of stories, history, and yes, heaps of trivia. Here's to many more days of mutant past, present, and future!
