The live action movie version of the wildly popular video game Assassin’s Creed is getting ready to begin filming very soon in London and Spain. With that, we are getting our first look at the film’s star Michael Fassbender, who will be playing Callum Lynch, an original character created for the film.

This photo is going to serve as a really great reference shot for all the cosplayers out there. I personally like how you can see the different textures and the intricate details on the blade. And that scruff!
The film will be based on an original story line, but elements elements will be taken from the original game(s). Fassbender’s Callum learns that he is a descendant from a line of assassins, most notable being Aguilar, who lived in Spain in the 15th century. The knowledge and experiences he gains from Aguilar will help in the present day in the battle against the Knights Templar.
Assassin’s Creed will be distributed by FOX and is being directed by Justin Kurzel. The movie will also feature Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed.
