Yahoo have released the first look at Michael Fassbender as the lead character in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film.
Michael, who is best-known for playing Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past (and reprises the role in next years X-Men: Apocalypse) will play a character called Callum Lynch in Assassin’s Creed. The movie may be based on the popular game series by Ubisoft but they have decided to go with a new protagonist and not use one from the games.
Yahoo also stated that the movie will be set in the same world as the video games and Callum Lynch is being introduced into that world. Note: This all but confirms that the events of the movie are of the same canon and within the video game series.
Production for the Assassin’s Creed movie begins on Monday August 31st.
Thoughts on the first look? Are you planning to watch the Assassin’s Creed movie?
