First ‘Assassin’s Creed’ photo reveals Michael Fassbender in full costume

A new video game film is coming, Assassin’s Creed, based on the popular Ubisoft franchise of the same title, starring Michael Fassbender as the lead character. Fans just got their first look at the X-Men First Class star in full costume.

Yahoo debuted the Assassins Creed first look photo of Fassbender in character and then reveals the truth about the role.

“Before hardcore Assassin’s Creed gamers start scratching their heads (and filling up the comments) about how exactly Callum Lynch fits into the game world, we can tell you that 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.)”

Director Justin Kurzel heads the adaptation which will also star Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, and Ariane Labed. Fassbender, Cotillard, and director Kurzel are just coming off of Macbeth, which will open in cinemas later this year, and Williams has a role in Captive with David Oyelowo and Kate Mara.

Here’s the plot of the Assassin’s Creed film, according to Yahoo:

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.

Shooting on Assassin’s Creed begins Monday, set to film all over Europe, hitting Malta, Spain, and London.

Assassin’s Creed arrives in theaters December 21, 2016.
