Shortly after “X-Men: First Class” came out, one of the first and most fascinating rumors about the potential sequel was that it would begin with the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy for which Magneto was partly responsible.
The rumor suggested that while Lee Harvey Oswald was the gunman, Michael Fassbender’s Erik had a big hand it. He ultimately was responsible for the famed second bullet – the so-called ‘magic bullet’ which caused multiple injuries that defied the laws of physics.
Now, a new viral video and website TheBentBullet.com has gone online and seemingly confirms all this. The site says 1963 was known by mutants as the ‘Summer of Hate’ in which several of them were assaulted or killed. As a result, Erik Lehnsherr may have plotted against John F. Kennedy and was photographed at the tragic event.
The clip comes a few days after the 50th anniversary of that fateful day which changed the world.
