X-Men Days Of Future Past – The Bent Bullet: JFK & The Mutant Conspiracy

Check out the latest installment of viral marketing for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men Days of Future Past, The Bent Bullet. This new piece of creative advertising is a conspiracy that claims that Magneto caused the odd tradjectary of the bullet from the infamous “Magic Bullet Theory” which was said to be the cause of wounds suffered to both Texas Governor John Connally‘s and President John F. Kennedy‘s. It’s a cool, though eerie, piece of historical fiction on par with The Comedian‘s claim to be the gunmen who killed Kennedy in Allen Moore‘s masterpiece, Watchmen. Enjoy!
