Saw it last night, great movie, really enjoyed it every aspect of it. Fassbender is AWESOME!!
But just a little spoiler question-
What does this make of X3? I only really thought about it on the drive home. That at the start of X3 we have a walking Charles and Erik meeting young Jean Grey, while by the end of FC Charles is already in the chair and Erik has turned to the dark side, and its far too early to meet Jean yet. Been a while since I watched X3, would that mean it just ignores that scene or the whole movie? Granted there are a lot of minor "glitches" in all the X movies I suppose. Human Hank McCoy cameo in X2, the different look of Sabretooth in X1 and XO:W etc
For beast the FC version does fit with Kelsey Grammer's version in the Last Stand. Think of Steve Bacic's character in X2 as a different Hank McCoy.
Xavier. The walking can be explained by whose perspective we're viewing from. The whole idea of residual self image from the Matrix is very much real. In a memory or a dream, people generally see what they consider their true self. In the case of people who have become disabled their true self includes being whole. There's also the issue of Prof X being able to make you remember him how he sees fit. Erik driving the car might be telling.
And speaking of the Magneto going bad thing: remember that as much as this is a story about mutants, its also about two best friends (almost quazi-brothers) on opposite sides who want nothing more than the other to come to their point of view. In the 35 some years between First Class and X-men there is plenty of time of reconciliation and another split.
