Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” launched a new promo featuring the “The Bent Bullet” theory about President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The video is part of a new viral site called The Bent Bullet, a JFK conspiracy site exploring Magneto’s involvement. Magneto / Erik Lehnsherr has been identified as the alleged murderer responsible for the JFK assassination.

The fake news reports reads:

“There was no second gunman on the grassy knoll that day, as some conspiracy theorists believe,”

“There was only Lehnsherr, trying to bend the bullet [of Oswald].”

Director Matthew Vaughn revealed in an interview with Hitfix a few months back that he has plans to introduce the JFK assassination . He said the following:

“I thought it would be fun to open with the Kennedy assassination, and we reveal that the magic bullet was controlled by Magneto. That would explain the physics of it, and we see that he’s pissed off because Kennedy took all the credit for saving the world and mutants weren’t even mentioned.”

Magneto is a mutant with the power to manipulate electromagnetic fields to achieve a wide range of effects.
