Fassbender's Assassin's Creed character not necessarily Desmond

Joystiq- Today's news about the often spoken of but never seen Assassin's Creed film adaptation brought word that Prometheus star Michael Fassbender is playing the starring role (Fassbender's DMC Film is also being tapped for co-production). Between his leading man role and the film's description – "a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar ... [is] sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts" – it sounded to many like Fassbender would be taking up the role of Desmond Miles, franchise leading man. Not so fast, says Ubisoft. (Assassin's Creed, Michael Fassbender, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

maybe the bad guy?

I'm hoping, I cant see him as Altair/Ezio/Desmond, but he would make an excellent Antagonist

They would need 3 different actors for Desmond, Altair & Ezio (4 if you count Connor in AC3) Surely he wouldn't play all three.

3 differn't actors...

Your suggesting they would try and squeeze all three Assassins stories in one film....if they did that it would suck, hard.

They might either choose Altair, or maybe Ezio since its the most popular Assassin.

Who knows, Im just glad Ubisoft hold creative control over the project so they will know EXACTLY how to handle the story

IGN reported that this guy will be in the lead role at their front page!

You trust everything you read on IGN?

Naah but they are considered as the no.1 gaming authority by many so that's why was wondering.

I think Fassbender would make a great Machiavelli

But then again, he's a great actor! There's many characters he could handle!

Maybe even an all new story and new assassin.

Bringing some serious acting chops to the gaming world...this is good news no matter how you look at it.

Could be worse. At least Fassbender is an excellent actor and someone who isn't a complete douche.

I actually like his work and appreciate his rising star status. He's a big name now.
