Take a Look at Michael Fassbender’s Assassin

Look, we all know that video game movies generally leave something (or a few things) to be desired.  But we here at BabbleOn5 think that they’re just an Iron Man (2008) away from taking off as Hollywood’s next big genre film.

Hopefully leading that charge is 2016’s Assassin’s Creed, starring X-Men actor Michael Fassbender.  The dude killed it as a younger Magneto, and he’s proven time and time again that he is quite the talented actor.

Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch’s ancestor Aguilar. He certainly looks the part.

Assassin’s Creed has developed in to one of gamings top franchises over the years, creating some pretty fascinating characters along the way.  However, Fassbender won’t be playing any of them.  Instead, he’ll be playing an original character for the movies:  Callum Lynch (doesn’t sound anywhere near as cool as Assassin’s Creed II’s Ezio Auditore).

Yahoo has a bit more on the subject, “Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing games, but rather introducing new characters into the same world.) Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.”

Yahoo also noted that filming begins this coming Monday at locations that include: Malta, London, and Spain.  Assassin’s Creed also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ariane Labed, and is directed by Justin Kurzel.  The film will hit theaters on December 21st, 2016.
