X-Men: Days of Future Past

Factual error: When Magneto enters RFK stadium, a groundskeeper is lining a baseball field. RFK stadium did not host baseball in 1973, as the Washington Senators had moved to Texas to become the Texas Rangers after the 1971 season. In 1973, the only team playing in RFK regularly was the Washington Redskins of the NFL. In addition, the Paris Peace Accords were signed in January of 1973; so there wouldn't be green grass inside the stadium, regardless of what sports were being played there.
