James McAvoy Was Hoping That He and Michael Fassbender Would Be Involved In Some X-Man-on-X-Man Action

“It is a little bit of a mini-tragedy that [Xavier] and Magneto don’t, you know, have sex and become married and become best friends,” said X-Men: First Class star James McAvoy to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph, a statement that has probably rankled die-hard fanboys and tightened the trousers of die-hard fangays.

But we agree with McAvoy. It’s high time ambiguously gay subtext at long last became text in at least one of these films. We also think Wolverine and Thor should join them in a committed polyamorous relationship. If anyone could make that kind of thing work it would be guys with superpowers.

    I thought, on several occasions, that the two were gonna make out…they didn’t…but I think they should have…

    I thought the exact same thing. And what was with the Magento\Mystique thing? They aren’t lovers, they’re best bitches.

    I’m not going to say that there’s no superhero team with a gayer fanbase than that of the X-family, but the Legion of Super-Heroes are never gonna get a movie
