Let's Judge The Assassin's Creed Movie Based On One New Image

Over the weekend Entertainment Weekly posted a story about the upcoming Fassbender-fueled Assassin’s Creed movie featuring the image above. The story was about—what does it matter? We’ve got everything we need to pass judgement right here.

It’s easy! Just look at the image for a few seconds and then type out whatever immediately comes to mind. Some of you already did this for our very first look at Michael Fassbender in costume—let us know if anything has changed. I’ve been reading people’s comments over at imgur all morning long, and they’ve got this down pat.


I’ll give you a few examples to get you started.

“This movie is going to be terrible.”

“Already hate it”

“As a major AC fan, this movie is going to fucking suck. Guaranteed.”

“Oh boy this is gone be just as bad as the Prince of Persia movie won’t it.”

The expression on the guy on the right tells me he isn’t remotely engaged in acting. He’s just bored.”


“They both look so disappointed with how their acting career is going.”

“They’re already doing it wrong. Colored robes? Seriously?!”


This is a white and gold assassin’s costume.

“Mocking Jay part 2 anyone...?”

“Here is a problem, I can tell by that image, the cast and imagery will suck horrible”


“Two white actors playing characters from the middle east” (Fassbender’s character is Spanish, but don’t let that stop you)

“I guess the eagle beak hood is not “film-friendly”. They wouldn’t just forget the eagle beak hood, right?”


So disappointed.

The Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender is slated for theatrical release in December of 2016. It’s gonna be a movie.
