In X2, we see Hank McCoy on the television, and we hear about his "accident." In First Class, he transforms into Beast many years prior.
Yes, but I'm asking specifically about the Wolverine movie and why that can't take place after X3. I already knew of the slew of continuity errors presented in the past X-films, but I thought they were doing something with Wolverine in this next installment that wouldn't jive with the past incarnations of that specific character.
I'm not doubting that they will mess up continuity even further though haha. FOX has really screwed the pooch on having a cohesive connected film universe. I was watching X-men Origins Wolverine yesterday as I got the blu-ray for christmas, and the entire time was thinking A) what a horrible, CG-ridden mess of a movie and B) how screwed up the continuity is thanks to that movie.
