Magneto To Officiate At Professor X’s Wedding

Submitted by on March 19, 2013 – 9:42 amNo Comment

Appearing on a UK talk show, Sir Ian McKellan made an announcement born of the dreams of nerds: he will be the officiant at the upcoming wedding of Sir Patrick Stewart to jazz singer Sunny Ozell.

Gandalf playing minister to Captain Picard. Who will be the groomsmen- Dr. Who, Eddard Stark, and Boba Fett?

McKellan claimed that the move is possible in Massachusetts, where the ceremony is taking place (and which he described erroneously as being “in the middle of America somewhere”). The story seems to check out: Massachusetts allows friends and family to officiate weddings for $25.

By the way, if I was less scrupulous writer, I would have run this under the headline “Magneto To Marry Professor X.” Which, grammatically speaking, is true.

Both McKellan and Stewart are signed on to reprise their mutant roles in X-Men: Days of Future Present. No word yet on whether this strange reality will be incorporated into the fiction.
