X-Men 3

Jean completely disintergrates Xavier, after killing Scott earlier in the movie. Magneto uses his powers to rip the Golden Gate bridge off the mainland and connect it to Alcatraz - where the brotherhood plan to kill Leech (the source of the cure). However - there are plenty of troops and guns - plastic cure darts which make Magneto's powers useless. Then the X-men arrive to hold the brotherhood back so that they can keep Leech safe. Storm electrocutes Callisto and Leech's powers causes Juggernaut to knock himself out. In the showdown between Iceman and Pyro, Iceman can't hold Pyro's flames and gets engulfed, but then he rises as the famous Iceman we remember from the comics (looking like he is made of ice) then knocks Pyro out. Beast then plunges a cure dart into Magneto and he is cured. Then Jean starts to disintergrate everyone who gets in her way. Logan makes his way towards her and his clothes disintergrate but his healing power manages to keep him alive. He yells "I love you" before plunging his claws into her. Back at school, Rogue returns and she is cured. She can touch Iceman now. Near the end of the movie, we see three gravestones - one for each Jean, Scott, and Xavier. The movie then moves on to a bunch of people playing chess and Magneto is by himself. His chess pieces are metallic and he moves his hand over one of them and it moves ever so slightly. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene. AFTER the credits, we see Dr Moira MacTaggart and a catatonic patient. He wakes and says, "Hello Moira," and she says, "Charles?". As Xavier had explained earlier on, he has now (possibly) put his consciousness into the catatonic patient.

Factual error: Take a look at Google Earth - the section of the Golden Gate Bridge Magneto breaks off (about a mile - tower to tower plus a section each end) isn't anywhere near long enough to reach Alcatraz from anywhere on the mainland.

More trivia for X-Men 3

Question: I have three questions regarding the end scene. 1. How come Jean can't crush Wolverine's body? I ask this because we can see her easily kill all people who walk too close to her. 2. Why didn't Wolverine inject Jean with the cure instead of killing her? 3. What would happen if Jean got injected with the cure?

Chosen answer: 1) Apparently the combination of Logan's unbreakable skeleton and healing factor was enough to keep Jean from shredding him - it's possible to see his body getting damaged and repairing itself in a few shots. 2) Because, while he's capable of getting close to her mostly intact, the same isn't really true of anything he might be wearing or holding, so any cure syringe he carried with him would be destroyed. 3) Who knows? Given her extreme power level, the cure might or might not have worked, and, considering the final shot of the movie, which suggests that the cure isn't permanent anyway, her powers would likely return before long.
