26X-Men: First Class

X-Men: First Class

A 12-page telepathic battle between Emma Frost and Charles Xavier that would be set inside of a dream was written in the script of "X-Men: First Class", but was removed after the filmmakers saw a similar concept in "Inception."

27. Stan Lee wanted to call the team of mutants The 'Merry Mutants'. Marvel changed it to 'X-Men.'

28. In 'X-Men: First Class', Jennifer Lawrence's character Mystique morphs into a beautiful model in an attempt to look older and seduce Magneto. This woman is Rebecca Romijn, who portrayed Mystique in the three previous "X-Men" movies.

29. Deadpool's healing factor is much more powerful than that of Wolverine or the Hulk. While he can survive a nuclear blast, which Wolverine and the Hulk have also done, Deadpool can reattach his head after decapitation, live in the vacuum of space (though he still wears spacesuits to "look cool"), and claims he can survive being thrown into a supernova.

30. While working on "X-Men: Days of the Future Past", director Bryan Singer would print out fan art of the film and tape it to the wall of the editing room for inspiration.

33. There is a Muslim X-Men character named Dust (real name Sooraya Qadir) who also dons the traditional clothing in the comics. She is a mutant with the ability to transform her body into a malleable cloud of dust.

34. While filming 'X-Men' movie, director Bryan Singer banned anyone from bringing comics on set, hoping actors won't read any character specifics that would conflict with their portrayals on the screen. Hugh Jackman ignored this and had "Wolverine" comics delivered to his trailer.

35. Nightcrawler's skin is covered with a layer of indigo fur which helps him blend with shadows.

In the comics, Deadpool once had a crush on Spider-Man, but the feeling wasn’t mutual.

37. Though it was written in the script for X-Men: Days of Future Past that Wolverine was to wake up in 1973 in his underwear, Hugh Jackman had this changed by claiming that if he were to wake up next to a “really good looking girl”, he wouldn’t be wearing anything.
