While our nation spent the past weekend memorializing the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the folks over at X-Men: Days of Future Past have apparently solved the long-standing mystery.  None other than Erik Lensherr/Magneto (Ian McKellen/Michael Fassbender) appears to be responsible for the vile act, guiding the projectile in what’s been called the “bent bullet” theory.  Much like the real-life conspiracy, there’s much more to the story than one simple misbehaving bullet.

The film also stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D May 23, 2014.  Hit the jump to watch the video.
