1. Halle Berry's role as Storm had to be substantially reduced due to her pregnancy.

2. The script called for Logan to wake up in 1973 in boxer shorts. Hugh Jackman vetoed this in favour of waking nude, saying, "In Australia, if you're next to a really good-looking girl, you're not getting out with boxer shorts on or briefs or anything!"

3. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were performing in a touring production of "Waiting for Godot," when Bryan Singer approached the actors about reprising their respective roles as Professor X and Magneto. According to McKellen, both men were utterly shocked, as they thought they had passed their roles on to James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, and would never play the characters again. Both Stewart and McKellen were delighted to return to two of their most popular roles, and to work with the younger actors playing the same characters as well.

4. Including his cameo in X-Men: First Class (2011), this is Hugh Jackman's seventh portrayal of Logan/Wolverine, which raised his own record for the most times a comic book character has been played by the same actor in theatrical films. Jackman is also the only actor to appear in the entire X-Men film series.

5. The filmmakers selected the "Days of Future Past" storyline because it would allow the filmmakers to reconcile any continuity dissonances within the "X-Men" film series. The time-travel element also allowed actors from the original film series and the intended reboot that was X-Men: First Class (2011) to appear in the same film together.

6. When Wolverine wakes up in the past, the woman in bed with him calls him Jimmy. According to the comics, Wolverine's name at birth was James Howlett (as his birth father was Thomas Logan, he inherited that surname).

7. In the original comic storyline, other Marvel heroes other than the X-men are wiped out by the Sentinels such as Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, Iron Man, Hulk, The Fantastic Four, and the Silver Surfer.

8. The original 'Days of Future Past' comic mentioned time travel from the year 2013, the same year in which filming began. In the film, the "future" action is implied to take place in 2023.

9. According to Bryan Singer, he could only get the film started with confidence once Hugh Jackman and Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen agreed to return.

10. Young Xavier tells Logan to "F*** off." This was the original scripted line for Hugh Jackman's cameo in X-Men: First Class (2011); however Jackman instead improvised the "Go f*** yourself" line.

11. This is the sixth time that Patrick Stewart has appeared in an X-Men film; Stewart had made an uncredited appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), and appeared in The Wolverine (2013)'s credits scene. The only X-Men movie he wasn't involved in up to Days of Future Past was X-Men: First Class (2011).

12. According to Peter Dinklage, Bryan Singer picked him to play Bolivar Trask because of his height, stating, "With my dwarfism, I'm a bit of a mutant. I can't move metal or anything, but I thought of it as self-loathing. Deep down, Trask is quite sensitive about that aspect of himself."

13. Bryan Singer based the time travel in the film on string theory: "Until an object is observed, it hasn't really happened yet. The time-traveller whose consciousness travels through time I call The Observer, and until the Observer returns to where he travelled from, the result hasn't occurred yet.

So he can muck about in the past and it isn't until he snaps back that the new future is set. As a result, we have parallel action, and there's underlying tension because there's always that threat Wolverine's consciousness could return to the future and leave the world in an even darker place."

14. For her role as Mystique, Jennifer Lawrence wore a special bodysuit. She had previously worn full-body prosthetics in X-Men: First Class (2011) but found that too uncomfortable.

15. This the first X-men film ever to be nominated for an Oscar (Best Visual Effects).
