These trivia from Reddit and other sources can be used as questions with answers in quizzes or games.

  2. Sound engineers added a low frequency continuous heartbeat sound effect that has a pounding effect on your ears that you would only experience during a fight-or-flight episode

  3. Logan wears black until he regains his humanity, and then immediately fights his clone, who wears black. This mirrors the western Shane that they watch in the hotel, where Shane wears a white hat, and Jack Wilson wears black.

  4. Logan berates Laura for reading an X-Men comic book and says that maybe a quarter of it happened. This is a nod to 20th Century Fox continuously disregarding X-Men fans and being only 25% faithful to original X-Men storylines.

  5. When Prof X was having a seizure, an actress forgot to stay still and turn her head around
