Michael Fassbender has been cast as Ubisoft’s “iconic hooded hero” in an Assassin’s Creed film. Which let’s be honest sounds pretty dope. The young German actor will likely portray the original franchise character; Syrian Master Assassin, Altaïr.
With roles in critically-acclaimed movies like Shame and blockbusters such as X-Men: First Class and Prometheus, Fassbender has quickly established himself as one of the most in-demand actors around, and his casting in the Assassin’s Creed movie sends out a strong signal of intent by the recently-founded Ubisoft Motion Pictures. The film will also be produced by Fassbender’s own company, DMC Film. What does it take to become a Master Assassin? Let’s take a look.
