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.
