When Erik and Charles are talking on the steps of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial, one can notice the WWII memorial in front of the Washington Memorial. The WWII memorial was not built and open to the public until 2004.

Many of the ships and weapons seen in the US and Soviet fleets did not exist in 1962 at the time of the Cuban missile crisis. For example the US flagship is the USS Iowa, but the Iowa was not in service at the time. Even if she had been, the ship was not fitted with the CIWS Gatling gun defense system until the 1980s. Amongst the collection of missiles fired at the beach are Harpoon anti ship missiles, which came into service in 1977, and Tomahawk missiles, which came into service in the late 1970s. On the Soviet side the flagship appears to be a Kresta class cruiser, a design not in service until 1967.

Sebastian Shaw: I hear you blocked the proposal to position nuclear missiles in Turkey. I expect you'll reconsider.

Is Wolverine in this movie?
Yes, albeit briefly. While Xavier and Magneto are gathering up mutants, they come across Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) sitting in a bar, but Wolverine tells them to get lost.
Is this in the same universe as the rest of the Marvel movies?
Yes and no. All films made under the Marvel Studios banner (e.g., Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) are all set in the same universe, with the characters crossing over, culminating in The Avengers (2012) movie ties these films together. Marvel also owns Punisher and Blade, however The Punisher (2004), Punisher: War Zone (2008), Blade (1998), Blade III (2002), and Blade: Trinity (2004) are not in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Other Marvel-based films owned by other studios are NOT set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, due to differing ownership. This includes Spider-Man (owned by Sony), the X-Men, and Fantastic Four (latter two owned by Fox). The Daredevil film from 2003 was released by Fox, but the rights to the character now belong to Marvel. The rights to Ghost Rider have also been returned to Marvel by Sony. In the case of X-Men, this film is linked to its predecessors and successors, as supported by the sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
