Dust off those wrist blades and practice your blending because we now have an image of the mighty Michael Fassbender showing off his role from the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. Based on the mega-smash hit video game franchise, Assassin’s Creed chronicles the time-spanning conflict between Templars and Assassins over pieces of long forgotten technology…like VHS players and the original Nintendo. Wait, I think it is more ancient than that. I’ll have to consult the genetic records! Okay, craziness aside, behold this image of Magneto-turned-Assassin, Michael Fassbender! Oh, and it looks like he has a friendy-friend!
When asked if he has played the game, Michael Fassbender responded, “I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.” I just hope that we get plenty of Michael Fassbender jumping off super tall buildings head first! That’s always one of the best parts of that game, no?
