If there were any doubts about Michael Fassbender as the leading man (and assassin) in the Assassin’s Creed movie, they should all be put to rest after watching this trailer. He looks fantastic. In the trailer, we see Fassbender who plays Callum Lynch, a small-time thug recruited by Abstergo Industries, attached to a massive machine that most likely helps him execute the high-flying moves needed to dispatch and run away from the enemies he will encounter when he taps into his Spanish ancestor’s memory. Just watch:
