When I watched the original X-Men films the last thing I thought was the Magneto and Professor X both really wanted to bang Mystique. If that's in there I either a) missed it or b) scrubbed it from my mind because EWWWW. And yet here we are, in a world where the latest X-Men film will see the Master of Magnetism getting it on with the Bluest Babe.
Says The Hollywood Reporter:
Apocalypse is being crafted around Lawrence's Mystique character and Michael Fassbender's Magneto. A source who has seen the script says Fox will take full advantage of Lawrence and Fassbender's star power, placing Mystique and Magneto's romance front and center.
I know they kissed in Days of Future Past, but it was weird and I didn't like it. I kind of liked the idea of Charles and Erik as competing dads for Mystique in First Class - I quite liked that Erik turned down Raven's advances in that film. It made more sense. But look, I'll take anything that keeps Wolverine out of the fucking spotlight. It isn't even that I dislike the character or Hugh Jackman, it's just that enough's enough already. I've seen more of Wolverine in the last decade than I've seen of my own family.
By the way, I may be alone in wanting Erik and Raven to keep it platonic:
