So, on that basis, I would say that the mainstream viewer is beginning to notice the continuity flaws.
Those are the obvious things that stand out. (Of course there are many other things in that film and every film - just see the First Class trivia page on IMDB
What we can hope for is a better continuity in future. Hopefully the franchise is being planned out in a more cohesive fashion.
Well one, what I would class as a "medium", continuity flaw out of five films isn't bad. As for Emma, as far as I am concerned, they are very much two different characters, the Emma in Origins, technically would have been named Emma Silverfox, she was just a nod to the character, like John Blake/Robin had nods to Dick Grayson, Jason Todd and Tim Drake.
But yeah, hopefully Fox will want to keep things neat if they want to have more "event" films.
