More Photos of Michael Fassbender in the 'Assassin's Creed' Movie
2016 is going to be an interesting year for video game movies. Two of the biggest adaptations in a while are set to premiere in theaters - starting with Warcraft in the summer, and eventually Assassin's Creed in the winter. We've already seen one first look at Michael Fassbender in costume in the Assassin's Creed movie, but with filming now underway, a few more photos have appeared. The latest action set comes from Empire, showing Fassbender in his iconic assassin's cloak. "We're striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can… We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special." View below.

The focus is on a protagonist character, an assassin, who usually wears a hooded outfit, which became the focus of their latest marketing campaign for AC: Revelations.
