Entertainment Weekly has released a deleted scene from X-Men: First Class that proves there was definitely something to the countless intimate moments between Charles and Erik.
The clip, which will be released on the upcoming First Class DVD, takes place during the duo’s mutant recruitment montage, after they enter a gentlemen’s club to discuss teaming up with the insect-winged Angel.
In the film, Magneto reveals himself (as a mutant, not in the law-breaking sense) to Angel by making a champagne bucket float and camply asking a smug Xavier if he would “like more tea Vicar?”
The deleted scene extends on that to show James McAvoy’s Charles use his Jedi mind tricks to make The Fass appear to be in a red wig, sequined blue dress, fishnet tights and boots. He’s honestly never looked sexier.
It’s almost criminal Matthew Vaughn decided to take this moment of genius out of the final cut. But perhaps the idea that Professor X openly thought of Magneto in women’s clothing was a bit much.
