The film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed has been in production for a long time. It looked like it would just never get off the drawing board, but eventually Michael Fassbender and a few others were attached to the project and a release date was set. Well today we have our first look at Fassbender in costume!

Fassbender is playing a new character created especially for the film named Callum Lynch. Callum is in fact very similar to Desmond Miles in narrative terms. When travelling back in time the movie will play out through the eyes of the 15th century Spanish assassin Aguilar . This is an interesting twist because it could mean that the films will be official canon within the game universe rather than a canon in and of itself.

Fassbender stated earlier in the year that the movie was set to film in September. Do you like the new look? Assassin’s Creed will hit theatres on December 21, 2016.
