Did Magneto (Help) Assassinate JFK?

The latest video clip intended to create buzz about next summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past may make a few folks cringe since it tries to link Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — just days after the USA marked the solemn 50th anniversary of the tragedy.

Personally, I don’t think the video crosses the line into bad taste, but I also don’t see any particular reason why it needed to be done — unless the assassination conspiracy ties directly into the plot of the new movie.
