New Viral X-MEN: DOFP Campaign Suggesting Magneto Was Tied to JFK Assassination

By Amirose Eisenbach November 27, 2013

Did you know that mutants may have been partially responsible for President John F. Kennedy's assassination? Neither did we. Blending historical events with fantasy is nothing new in cinema. We saw this with "Forrest Gump" and many other imaginative and amazing movies and now it looks like "X-Men" Days of Future Past" is utilizing the same technique.

A new viral campaign called "The Bent Bullet" has emerged with an attempt to expand the conspiracy around JFK's assassination even further. The campaign suggests that Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender) may have been tied to the events that day and the morbid and heartbreaking outcome.
