so after seeing Days of Future Past twice, I still have two questions (the second one is super spoilery!!):
1) How did McKellen’s Magneto get his powers back? Stewart’s Professor X being alive was explained at the end of The Last Stand but if Magneto’s regaining his powers was explained somewhere in the movie franchise, I missed it.
1) Post credit scene of the last stand saw Magneto get his powers back, his metal chess piece wiggles, so the “cure” wasn’t permenant
2) Charles uses cerebro to find Rouge when she is young because mutants now grow up not in fear but as a race to be embraced since Raven saved the president instead of killing him so mutants reveal themselves to the world
3) some original cast ARE back for Apocolypse
