Here's how Michael Fassbender looks in the Assassin's Creed film

In the hood.

Here's your first look at Prometheus and X-Men star Michael Fassbender dressed up for his starring role in the upcoming Assassin Creed movie.

The film, simply titled Assassin's Creed, will finally begin shooting next week after years of delays.

Fassbender plays modern day Assassin Callum Lynch, who relives the genetic memories of Aguilar, a 15th Century Spanish ancestor (thanks, Yahoo Movies).

The Dark Knight Rises' Marion Cotillard and Fassbender's 12 Years A Slave co-star Michael Kenneth Williams are also set to star.

Ubisoft, New Regency and 20th Century Fox have set a final release date of 21st December 2016 for the film.

Its story will tie in to the franchise's existing universe, but tell its own story. It's unknown if any of the games' existing characters will be making an appearance.
