Apparently for X-Men: Apocalypse, there's going to be a slash plot story. Sorry, it won't be Magneto/Professor X, but instead it will be Magneto/Mystique love angle "front and center". I don't know why this curve ball is being thrown but it doesn't seem like the natural progress for the franchise. I've never read the X-men comics, so maybe there is a hint of a romance between them at one point. But in all the movies thus far, even the ones from the early 2000s, there has always been like a father/daughter type of relationship, or at the very least, Magneto was a mentor to Mystique, but these sexytimes talk is kinda weird. But we'll see how this progresses. I personally would have preferred Magneto/Prof X, but that wouldn't be a PG13 action film, it'll be something else, and I think I'm probably the only one who would go to see it. Maybe this is Bryan Singer's way of killing all those tumblr slash fantasies and to add an element of romance between the two highest profile characters in the X-Men universe to get mo monay! With Michael Fassbender being the sexy mean-wicked mutant leader, and the crazy fanbase of Jennifer Lawrence as the gorgeous blue chameleon mutant, this may be a plot to get more butts in the seats of an already successful franchise. I'm not complaining, I will accept Michael Fassbender in any type of lovey dovey situation as long as we get to see him in various stages of having that helmet off, if you catch my drift.
Meanwhile, over at FF Facebook, we are developing a timeline of Michael Fassbender's life and career that goes back to 1977. You'll be able to merely click on a date in that timeline and read all publicly known information about him that occurred that year. You're welcome. This project will be an ongoing project between me, Vera, and Stephanie as we work to capture not only his filmography, but TV shows, TV guest appearances, red carpet events, award nominations, and print interviews/magazine cover stories. Basically, the highest highlights of each year of his awesome career!
