Photo: Fassbender In “Assassin’s Creed”

The first photo has been released of Michael Fassbender in the role of ‘Callum Lynch’ in the upcoming film adaptation of the “Assassin’s Creed” video game series opening December 21st 2016.

Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film version and is a man who discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society thanks to 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. Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed also star in the film which begins shooting in Malta, London, and Spain on Monday under the helm of his “Macbeth” director Justin Kurzel.
