The mystery of who shot JFK isn’t any simpler in the “X-Men” universe, either.
A new viral marketing video (above) for Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” links Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to the death of President John F. Kennedy, but with a fair share of uncertainty.
While the Warren Commission contends the mutant — otherwise known as Erik Lehnsherr — altered the path of the second bullet Lee Harvey Oswald fired to make sure it hit the President on Nov. 22, 1963, the “Bent Bullet” theory is based entirely on circumstantial evidence. That didn’t stop the government from finding Magneto guilty of first degree murder and conspiracy charges, but the question remains: Why would Magneto even want to assassinate the President?
The video links to a website with a fake news article filling fans in where Magneto will likely be found when the franchise picks back up again next year — a top-secret federal correctional facility where he has been since 1963.
