20th Century Fox has released the very first image of Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in the big screen adaptation of Assassin’s Creed. The film is based on the very popular video game of the same name. However, Fassbender’s character is not based on any character from the games, and was created just for the movie. The cinematic character will exist in the same world as his fellow video game characters, furthering the mystery of the rivalry between two ancient secret societies: the Assassins and the Knights Templar.
Check out the first look at Fassbender, plus more on the film as well as a plot synopsis, below.
