Late in this trailer for the new X-Men movie — ‘Days of Future Past’ — there is a brief shot of the inside of a stadium. Go to the 2:10 mark. This is Magneto, wreaking some sort of havoc.
Any D.C. sports fan would immediately recognize the familiar color scheme of those three levels of seats.
Now, we’ve certainly not heard of any reports of this movie being shot in D.C., and Canadian news agencies reported that scenes were shot last spring at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. Which could mean that one former home of the Nats franchise was made to resemble another former home of the Nats franchise.
I’ve checked with the D.C. Office of Motion Picture and Television Development just to make sure we didn’t miss the X-Men in Washington.
