First look on Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie

(English below)

Michael Fassbender Assasin's Creed

Gebaseerd op de video game series Assassin’s Creed komt er volgend jaar de gelijknamige film met Academy Award-winning Michael Fassbender (X-Men, Prometheus, Centurion) en Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, InceptionLa Vie en Rose) in de hoofdrol.

De film Assassin’s Creed wordt geregisseerd door Justin Kurzel, regisseur van Snowtown, The Turning en het aankomende historische drama MacBeth. Het scenario is geschreven door Bill Collage en Adam Cooper, die samen eerder Exodus: Gods and Kings schreven, en Michael Lesslie (Macbeth).

Yahoo! legt uit dat het personage van Lynch speciaal is ontworpen voor de film. De film Assassin’s Creed zal niet het verhaal vertellen uit de bestaande games, maar zal nieuwe personages introduceren in dezelfde wereld.

Callum Lynch ontdekt in Assassin’s Creed dat hij afstamt van een geheim genootschap van de Assassins dankzij herinneringen uit zijn genen, die hem in staat stellen om avonturen te herleven van zijn voorouder, Aguilar, in de 15e eeuw in Spanje. Nadat hij kennis en vaardigheden heeft opgedaan in het verleden is hij klaar om het op te nemen tegen onderdrukkende Tempeliers in de huidige tijd.

De film Assassin’s Creed zal 22 december 2016 in de bioscopen te zien zijn.

The movie Assassin’s Creed will be in theaters next year, based on the video-game series of the same name. Academy Award-winning actor Michael Fassbender (X-Men, Prometheus, Centurion) and actress Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, InceptionLa Vie en Rose) will be playing the leading roles.

The movie will be directed by Justin Kurzel, director of Snowtown, The Turning and the upcoming historical drama MacBeth. The screenplay is written by Bill Collage and Adam Cooper, who wrote Exodus: Gods and Kings earlier, and Michael Lesslie (Macbeth).

Yahoo! explains that “Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing games, but rather introducing new characters into the same world.)

Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.”

The movie Assassin’s Creed will be released in theaters on December 22nd 2016.

Captain America and Iron Man’s Civil War Teams Revealed

*spoiler alert* (English below)

Aan het eind van Avengers: Age of Ultron loopt de spanning tussen Iron Man en Captain America hoog op. Dit leidt tot een breuk van The Avengers in de aankomende Marvel film Captain America: Civil War (2016). Welke superhelden aan wiens kant komen te staan, wordt nu duidelijk dankzij promo art gepubliceerd via het Twitter-account van acteur Jeremy Renner.

Op afbeeldingen die hij postte, zien we dat Hawkeye, gespeeld door Renner, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) op zijn schouder heeft staan. Zij zullen zich bij het team van Captain America (Steve Rogers) voegen samen met Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie) met zijn drone Redwing en ‘nieuwkomer’ Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp).

Het team van Iron Man zal (Robert Downey Jr.) bestaan volgens de promo art uit War Machine (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany) en zal er een nieuw personage worden geïntroduceerd: Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Black Panther zal in 2018 zijn eerste solo film krijgen.

Het is nog onduidelijk bij wie Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) en Spider-Man (Tom Holland), die ook een rol zullen hebben in Captain America: Civil War, zich zullen aansluiten. De film zal op 5 mei 2016 in de bioscopen te zien zijn.
