One of the biggest complaints I constantly hear from X-Men fanboys is that Bryan Singer ruined the X-Men due to continuity discrepancies. The claim is that Singer is short sighted, that he only considers one movie at a time, and as a result the movies “directly contradict one another.”
I have never thought this to be true and personally think that every contradiction is actually hidden clues to the bigger story. In my opinion, Singer and his associates have set up the films like magicians slowly unfolding their greatest illusions.
I’m compiling a post to take these continuity discrepancies apart and explain how they hint at the larger story. What I would like is input from readers. What are the issues you want discussed?
