X-Men: Days Of Future Past presents Magneto as JFK’s possible killer

The Bent Bullet theory

X-Men: Days Of Future Past has released a new viral video online, in which Magneto is revealed to be the possible killer of JFK.

The new video asserts that Magneto was arrested after the president’s fatal shooting, accused of altering the trajectory of Lee Harvey Oswald’s second bullet.

It would appear that in the world of the film, Magneto was found guilty of Kennedy’s murder and imprisoned for it. Although how long he will stay locked up remains to be seen…

Take a look at the new video below:

There’s plenty more in this vein to be enjoyed over at viral site The Bent Bullet, and the whole thing serves rather nicely as a scene-setting device ahead of the new film, which takes place in the 70s as well as the distant future.

Directed by Bryan Singer and co-starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 22 May 2014.

      Hmm I've seen franchises use the JFK assassination before, Call of Duty used it in the first Black Op's game.

      @Ali1748 Yeah. Watchmen (2009) shows the Comedian as being the real assassin behind the JFK killing, and I remember seeing all kinds of ideas in other movies as well.
