No doubt inspired by memories of all those good times they had together before one of them turned evil dredged up by X-Men First Class, Magneto will be officiating Professor X’s wedding. It’s all part of a carefully orchestrated plan to keep nerds from ever having to engage with reality.

Sir Ian McKellen will officiate at the upcoming wedding of Sir Patrick Stewart and his fiancée, 35-year-old jazz singer Sunny Ozell. When the topic of X-Men: Days of Future Past came up during McKellen’s appearance on U.K. program The Jonathan Ross Show this weekend, the English actor announced, “I’m going to marry Patrick,” provoking some fits of laughter from the audience before he clarified, “How else do you put that? I’m going to officiate at his wedding.” [EW]

And somewhere, the guy who played Worf sits, morosely staring at his eternally silent Bat’leth phone.

Anyway, let this be a lesson to all the guys out there: if you’re 72-year-old actor and you don’t want your wedding to a woman half your age to sound scandalous, just get a sassy, beloved gay knight to officiate. Now everyone will cheer. You can’t deny that these two are adorable together. Not even Danny Boyle standing between them can change that. MY GOD, LOOK AT THE SIZE OF HIS HEAD!

Danny Boyle’s skull was the model for the Juggernaut helmet. True story.

Of course, as you may have seen, Patrick Stewart is no stranger to presiding over unions himself:
