Sir Ian shakes and stirs 007 ‘ silly twit’
BRITISH actor Sir Ian McKellen has taken a swipe at and dismissed the Superman franchise as “a joke” and branded superspy James Bond a “silly twit”.
In an interview with entertainment news website Uproxx. com The Lord of the Rings wizard said unlike the storylines in Superman and the Bond franchises, he took an immediate liking to the first X- Men film script because he identified with the continuing theme of the series.
“That’s James Bond: ‘ Shaken, not stirred’, silly, stupid, British twit ... and then, ‘ Action Man’!’’ he said. ‘‘ But X- Men is about the problems of being a mutant. ‘‘ And we’ve all felt we’re mutants on occasion.”
