Ian McKellen Eyeing Michael Fassbender as Hot, Young Trophy Husband

CelebritiesDirt Bag

If you don’t like having comic book movie plots spoiled years in advance, this year’s Comic-Con probably wasn’t for you. If, however, you enjoy seeing Ian McKellen try to literally charm the pants off of his X-Men: Days of Future Past co-star Michael Fassbender, then this year’s Comic-Con was probably the best thing to happen ever.

McKellen and Fassbender, who will play old and young Magneto, respectively, were sitting near each other at their Comic-Con panel. Questions were asked, answered, and generally bantered over until McKellen decided that Fassbender was just too handsome not to flirt with. So, without further ado, this is what Ian McKellen’s game sounds like: “I just want to say it’s great to be back in California,” McKellen told the crowd. “I feel safe here now that you’ve gotten rid of Proposition 8. I’m looking for a husband…It’s great to meet you, Michael.” [Vulture]
