Gay actor Sir Ian McKellen has complained that his character in the upcoming X-Men film should have had some gay scenes.

Legendary thespian, Sir Ian, plays Magneto in the third X-Men movie, and claims it would have been nice to have a homoerotic sub plot in his role.

He told Empire magazine, “He hasn’t been given a love line, which I think is a pity.

“It would be wonderful if the camera hovered over Magneto’s bed, to discover him making love to Professor X.”

X-Men: The Last Stand, also stars Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, it is released on May 27 2006 in the UK.
