Did Magneto Kill JFK? Now it All Makes Sense!


Michael Fassbender in X-Men Days of Future Past Viral Video

With the anniversary of the JFK assassination in Dallas just a few days ago, I’m not entirely sure if this is in very good taste, to use the former President’s death as some kind of gimmicky viral video for your movie. But it sure is timely — and heck, if you subscribe to the “magic bullet” theory, then it certainly makes sense that ol Magneto would be involved, right? He is the master of magnetism, after all. I know this for sure, though: Oliver Stone is probably rolling around in his grave right about now.

Here’s the gag:

Half a century ago, Magneto was implicated in the mutant plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. The events of that fateful day in November have been a point of contention between humans and the mutants ever since.

Check out the viral video below. The film itself, starring Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender among many, many more, finally reveals the conspiracy next year on May 23, 2014.

  • Juggernaut

    Pretty cool idea.

    Yeah it is, and with the way First Class went it only makes sense. I think this is part of what sets the timeline off rails.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    I’m so confused, they should just completely disbar the first three films, declare them non cannon or something.

      Time travel does that. Basically something happens in the past that completely changes the X-men film history. Sentinels get built in the 70’s and things progressed differently. I’m guessing someone bad goes back frist and alters things, like sets up an assassionation and that sends anti-mutant sentiments into overdrive. So ina changed future the mutants are all but destroyed and they send wolverine back to fix it all.

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        Does that mean weapon XI and the rape of Deadpool never happened?

          Well if the time line is close to what someone theorized then quite possibly yes. The part that’s set in the past would be before the events of XMO: Wolverine. But who know at this point.
