The place for news related to the Assassin's Creed movie.

To start with, here's Michael Fassassinbender in the robes. (Yes, I shamelessly copied that pun from another source.)

Spoiler!

"Before hardcore 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 version. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing Creed 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.

Also starring Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave), and Ariane Labed (Before Midnight), cameras start rolling for Creed on Monday. Filming is set to happen in Malta, London, and Spain."

So the article implies he's a modern day character but the photo above shows Fassbender in old Assassin robes, will he play both Callum and Aquilar?

Well, considering how Desmond, Altair, and Ezio looked very similar, I don't see why not.

I wouldn't get too excited, considering how most video game-based movies usually end up.

Well this one is being made by Ubisoft so I think I'll stick with being excited.

There was a Q&A on Twitter earlier today:

- The setting is indeed during the Spanish Inquisition in the late 15th Century.
- Fassbender will play both present day Callum and his 15th century ancestor Aguilar.
- Full cast list will be revealed "very soon". Fassbender, Cotillard, Michael K Williams and Ariane Labed are only confirmed cast so far.
- Abstergo will make an appearance in present day sequences.
- Heavy hints at cameos of other Assassin's.
- New story, new characters, same universe. "You may see some familiar faces".
- In regards to canon: "We share the same universe. Elements in the film have consequences as in our games, books and comics".
- Modern day setting is "key element".
- Some of the cast has played the games.
- Main focus was on crafting an elegant story not beholden to original games, but using same DNA.
- Will retain many familiar elements from games while also not trying alienate those new to franchise.
- Callum is "very different from Desmond, Clay or Daniel Cross".
- Movie IS canon.
- Will expand lore and mythology.
- A NEW "kick ass" animus.
- Lots of surprises in store.

I wonder if the screen will occasionally flicker or glitch while we watch Aguilar's story. :D
