There are some people out there that are calling Fassbender’s character in the Assassin’s Creed movie as Desmond. This is completely incorrect! This is an all new character named Callum Lynch and his ancestor is Aguilar. At this point we don’t have a lot of additional information on the new movie other than that it is a whole new story line and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
I know that Hollywood has a track record of screwing up movies that began as video games (i.e. Doom, Silent Hill Street fighter, and Mario Bros.) but there have also been some good ones like Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Tron; and hopefully we can add War Craft and the in pre-production Rise of the Tomb Raider to the good list.
The Assassin’s Creed universe has such a deep and detailed history that it lends itself nicely to being translated to live action cinema. I have high hopes and am truly looking forward to the film coming to theaters on December 21.
