No, they are completely different characters. As discussed in this Sci-Fi & Fantasy question and this Movies & TV question, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are rare exceptions to the general licensing deal that Marvel made with Fox. Part of that deal is that Fox has the exclusive rights to make movies about any of the "mutants" in the Marvel Universe:...

Firstly, the post-credits scene from X-Men 3 hints at his survival. If for any reason you can't view the video, this is what happens (from the wiki): After the credits there is a scene at the hospital, where the comatose man from the video that Xavier showed his students is lying in a hospital bed. Dr. Moira MacTaggart enters the room to see the ...

To give the audience the sense of meeting the characters for the first time, in every movie. From a 2014 interview with Simon Kinberg by Steve Weintraub for Collider on X-Men: Days of Future Past: KINBERG: Yeah. One of the things, and this is an idea that came out of my work with Matthew Vaughn was, we didn’t want to do what most sequels do, which is ...

According to this interview with Bryan Singer: “Is that the Scarlet Witch? No, that’s his little sister,” Singer said. “I even had a line which I cut, where Quicksilver’s mother says to the little girl, ‘Go up and bug your sister,’ and the little girl says, ‘She bugs me!’ You never see the older sister, but it was to imply that there is an older sister ...

Days of Future Past reveals, albeit somewhat subtly and with more inference than direct exposition, the reason for Xavier's inability to walk... Personally, I think this was supposed to be conveyed as part of his secondary-stage mutation: which was perhaps too much of a concept to fit into an already crowded narrative. The real unanswered question, is ...

The Logan we see at the end is has the same consciousness of the Logan from 2023-D (Dystopian Future). In 1973, a timeline split occurs that creates 2 separate futures, one that leads into the Dystopian [D] future, and another that leads into what is shown at the end of the movie (we'll call it "peaceful [P]" future), 2023-P. In 2023-P, Logan is a history ...

I haven't seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, so I can't comment on whether this was shown in the film, but this site does include quotes from the director, Bryan Singer, on the issue: That wasn’t the only tempting breadcrumb that Singer threw to Empire, as part of the organization’s Days of Future Past marketing blitz. Fans who’ve been paying close ...

It appears the decision to cast Peter Dinklage was made for two main reasons. First (and arguably foremost), he's very hot property in Hollywood. A quick look at his Wikipedia page can show the amount of awards and nominations he's been up for since Game of Thrones debuted. He also regularly tops fan polls regarding their favorite character. All of this ...

I think the movie answers all this pretty well, but let's look at your questions step by step: When he wakes up at the end of the movie he remembers what he did in the past but has no memory of his new timeline. This is true and is because it is his old-timeline version who awakes at exactly the time when he would awake from Kitty's control in the old ...

According to this Marvel timeline: In 1973: "Early" scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past are set. Mark I Sentinels are created. Between 1973 and 1996, Trask produces 8,732 Mark I Sentinels for the governments of the United States, China, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, India and the United Kingdom. In 2013: The year that "The Wolverine"...

I can't speak to the source material but considering First Class to back some of these claims: In this movie, it is portrayed that Charles and Erik were actually really close friends. Albeit they did have different ulterior motivations for their cause. Charles' mostly scientific vs Erik's compassion for mutants after being discriminated by Nazis facing a ...

This song was Roberta Flack's version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". I can't say much to the significance of its usage, though. But for one, it was released around '70 and was a major hit in 1972. So it was hot at the time when Logan awakes in the past (1973). It was thus first and foremost part of the many 70's nostalgia elements that the movie ...

If you watch the movie The Wolverine until the end then you can see that Wolverine meets Prof. Xavier and Magneto at the airport and they ask to regroup. Both these characters help Wolverine to his metal claws back (with major help from Magneto of course, because he controls metal) so that they can fight the Giant Mutant Destroyers in X-Men: Days of Future ...

It is not shown in any movie explicitly how he is alive. However, as per post credit scenes of movie X-Men Last stand ,he transferred his mind to his evil twin. You can read this another related question Also in the end-credit scenes of The Wolverine, he and Magneto confront Wolverine at the airport where on being asked, "How's this possible?", Prof X. says,...

According to the Fox executives, the storyline in Days of Future Past has erased all of X-Men 3: The Last Stand's storyline from canon, as well as parts of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In-universe, everything that happened in the first X-Men trilogy occurred in the original timeline, where Mystique kills Trask in 1973. Once Wolverine is sent back and stops her,...

Per Writer and Producer Simon Kinberg, "erased" is not an accurate description of how the timelines have been affected. As such, it is only a matter of opinion to state which aspects of the various films may no longer be relevant to timelines moving forward from DOFP. “The end of Days of Future Past in 1973 does change the timeline of the established film ...

What's to stop Eric from breaking away from Logan and the others upon being broken out of prison? Quicksilver is just some kid with authority and motivational issues who only helps them because he gets to break into The Pentagon, one of the most secure locations on Earth at the time. No one knew Logan officially until several decades later, plus, why would ...

The Toad from X-Men: Days of Future Past (Evan Jonigkeit) is supposed to be a younger, darker version of the Toad from X-Men (Ray Park). From an interview with Evan: Jonigkeit, a fan of the books, will very likely have minimal screen time and dialogue [in X-Men Days of Future Past] – sadly like most of the characters we know about – but he does ...

In X-Men: Days of Future Past it was considered just a joke / wink to the knowledgeable audience. However, it was explicitly stated in X-Men - Apocalypse that Magneto was Quicksilver's father. Edited Dialogue: Quicksilver: "Do you know him...Magneto?" Mystique: "Why do you care so much? You see his speech on TV or something?" Quicksilver: "...

It is possible that they merely knew the Sentinels were becoming more and more advanced. We see the Mark I Sentinels in 1973 with the Mark X (ha!) being the super-powered ones we see in 2023-D (D meaning the Dystopian future). Considering this scene with them recruiting Wolverine takes place in 2015-D we can assume the Sentinel program is probably ...

The "new" continuity that exists after Days of Future Past isn't actually clear. We know that the movies X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men 3: The Final Stand are no longer canon, but that doesn't necessarily mean that those events didn't happen in some form or another. In particular, note that all of the remaining X-Men films are still canon, so all of ...

The fact that the whole time travel is based on some arbitrary magic mutant power allows them to solve this potentially pradoxical issue in a rather convenient way, which is that Logan's changes to the timeline don't take effect on the future until he wakes up from Kitty's grasp. This is explained by Kitty before she sends him back: Basically, your body ...

The movies have not really examined the extent of Wolverine's ability to regenerate. In the comics they have been dramatically extended over the years to the point where he can survive being near the centre of a nuclear explosion. Specifically on the issue of drowning, the story arc "Drowning Logan" (Wolverine (vol. 5) #5 (Jun. 2013). Marvel Comics.) ...

Magneto's disappearance in the new future clearly suggests that he didn't come together with Professor X. And it's reason is clear because there is no risk of Sentinels anymore. So we can conclude any number of theories about it, like he is still planning something bad, or retired from his villain work or died or anything you can ever think of. But we don'...

As mentioned in comments by @NapoleonWilson he already remembered his WWII experiences with Yashida in The Wolverine. Which is even raised in a different question: Why does Logan remember Yashida? So we can assume that he got all of his memories back by DoFP, that's why he remembers that girl. But as you mentioned he got shocked seeing bone claws. Which ...

If you want to know how he survived , then he just transferred his consciousness to his identical brain dead twin brother. From marvel-movies.wikia.com In an after-credits scene, Xavier speaks to Moira McTaggert through the body of a comatose man, implying that his consciousness survived by transferring itself into the body (An action that Xavier had ...

From the transcript: Xavier: They captured her that day. Tortured her. Experimented on her. In her DNA they discovered the secrets to her powers of transformation. It gave them the key they needed to create weapons that could adapt to any mutant power and the result is the machines that have destroyed so many of our kind were created and it all started ...

Yes, he still ends up with Adamantium claws (and a broken memory). With the release of X-Men: Apocalypse we definitely know that Wolverine still ends up with Adamantium claws even in the changed timeline. It is true that it was actually Mystique who picked him up from the river at the end of Days of Future Past and he thus had a much lower chance to end up ...

We won't know the answer to this, unless/until we see it happen (again) in a future movie. As you noted, Days of Future Past changed the timeline; that means everything we saw happening in the first three X-Men movies, plus X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is no longer necessarily true. In the original timeline, as far as we know, Logan did not know anyone from ...

You seem to be misunderstanding Kitty's phrase: ... once you wake up whatever you've done will take hold and become history. And for the rest of us, it will be the only history that we know. Wolverine is just required to "wake up", not "wake up in the future where the sentinels exist" as you mention in your comment below the question. If he does go back ...
