Aww! Gandalf and his GREAT director are saying goodbye!

Peter Jackson and Ian McKellen have been working together since 1999 on The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy. But Friday marked their final day of production on the movies.

It's the end of an era!

After 14 years together creating the EPIC films, Peter and Ian posed for this picture. Jackson posted it to his Facebook and wrote:

We previously mentioned that Ian McKellen has prostate cancer!

We even had quotes of him saying he's had it for a while now, six or seven years!

That is all apparently false.

Well, mostly false at least.

McKellen's agent spoke out on the story that was circulating the internet, and said:

You. Shall not. Pass.

Seriously, Sir Ian McKellen, you're too darn friendly and talented and charming and totally awesome as Gandalf the Grey to ever pass!

The 73 year-old British icon revealed sad news recently: he has prostate cancer!

And the X-Men/Lord of the Rings has battled it for the better part of a decade!

Thankfully, the man is a trooper and he wont let the terrifying C-word get him down!

Ian McKellen On Living With Prostate Cancer

Filed under: Film FlickersHealthCancer

Sir Ian McKellen has been living with prostate cancer for several years now!!

If he actively has cancer, it's amazing he was able to reprise his role as Gandalf in The Hobbit.

Regular exams are apparently enough to keep it in check.

X-Men's Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart Confirmed To Reprise Their Mutant Roles In Days Of Future Past!

Fantastic!

Thanks to a helpful tweet by director Bryan Singer, it's official X-Men lovers — Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart — are totally coming back to Days Of Future Past as Professor X and Magneto!

They'll be teaming up with the insatiably hot Michael Fassbender (young Magneto) and cutie James McAvoy (young X). JUST FYI!

Now… in the comics, Days of Future Past told the alternating stories of dystopian future-living mutants stuck in internment camps and present day mutes fighting the future from happening.

So with the news, this means Fassypants and McAvoy will be the present day mutants while the vets' future will live in early 21st century as X was believed to be killed in 2006's The Last Stand.

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are also slated to return as Mystique and Beast, so we can only imagine that Rebecca Romijn and Kelsey Grammer will play their future selves.

And maybe… just maybe… they'll somehow bring Jean Grey into the mix so she can duke it out with January Jones!

Sir Ian McKellen went to a special meet-and-greet event for the charity Step Forward.

Step Forward is an organization that provides free and confidential services to young people, 11 to 25, living in and near Tower Hamlets in East London.

McKellen is a patron of the charity, so he gladly spent an evening meeting the Step Forward team.

Step Forward wrote in their blog:

New Images From X-Men: First Class! Magneto And Professor X Have Arrived!

Check out the photos (above) of Michael Fassbender as Magneto and James McAvoy as Professor X in Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class!

We had gotten a glimpse of the full cast earlier this week, but we're pumped to get a more substantial look at these two key characters!

We'll miss Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, but hey! They've gone on to bigger and better things, like The Hobbit and…doing voices on Family Guy (sorry Patrick!)

We like what we're seeing A LOT! Next, we'll look forward to some images of January Jones as a totally true-to-her-comic-book-character, sluttastic Emma Frost!

HAWT!
