I still don't know why *I'm* here. Couldn't you just make them say yes?
Prof. Charles Xavier: Yes, I could, but it's not my way. And I would expect you, of all people would understand my feelings about the misuse of power.
Eric Lensherr: Ah, "power corrupts" and all that. Yes, I know, ...
Time of day during the final battle sequence. The first pan over the bridge from southeast looking north, is clearly midday as the shadow of the bridge is almost directly underneath it. When Magneto first walks onto the Golden Gate bridge it is close to sunset, and the shadowing is very inconsistent, sometimes sharp from direct sunlight, sometimes not. By the time they move the bridge and drops it onto the island, and lowers himself to the bridge, and all the mutants move forward, it is suddenly dark. In the DVD commentary, everyone acknowledges it, but says "Hopefully you're into the movie enough..." The whole battle is then shown as taking place in the dark.
The Marvel logo features comic-book images of the X-Men in its pages. Notable characters seen are the Phoenix, Angel and the Juggernaut; also seen is a moving bridge.
