With the release of Logan, many people wonder where it falls in the X-Men cinematic timeline. The movie timelines seem to branch into two different paths. The beginning of both timelines starts with X-Men: First Class then goes right into Days of Future Past which creates the two timelines: one where Mystique kills Bolivar Trask and the other where she spares his life. Timeline 1, which involves Mystique murdering Trask which results in Sentinels killing off mutants, is where the original X-Men trilogy takes place, as well as X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine. The beginning of DoFP ultimately is the result of all five movies. Now timeline 2, which is the altered timeline the end of DoFP created, includes X-Men: Apocalypse and Logan.
