The first photos of Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in the upcoming film
'Assassin's Creed' have been released by Yahoo. Based off the long-running franchise of the same name, Assassin's Creed the film will take place within the same universe as the games but will be a new story with a new character. 

Above, you can see Michael Fassbender dressed in the iconic tunic and cloak with what looks like subtle homages to assassins Altair and Ezio. The film is slated for release on December 21st, 2016.

Of all the franchises to be made into a film. I see this as the most viable. With Nintendo stating their desire for films and the announcement that Naughty Dog's The Last of Us universe will be hitting the silver screen, there won't be any shortage of video game films. While they don't have the greatest track record, if this photo of Fassbender is any reflection of the upcoming film, it'll be worth a watch.
