    If they base it on the AC1 game I have the feeling the whole story (with both Altair and Desmond) will be entirely re-written and won't follow the game closely at all. (Almost like a new game).

    So far, I haven't seen any AC fans that excited to see AC1 on the big screen; however that doesn't mean they won't go and see it.

    And of course there's the problem of Michael Fassbender not looking like either Altair or Desmond. Sure, there's always make up but I'm betting there will be some reactions.

    It's possible that the AC movie may as well not mention the specific 2012 date at all and just say Desmond has to stop an impending disaster sometime in the near future.
    maybe i'm the minority but I just don't want to see something that i've already played

    Fanmade or not, Fassbender would make a pretty good Desmond, judging from that poster!

    The fact that it is fan made, I've seen it on Tumblr.

    This guy could be just a model who knows nothing about acting. Movies should never use actors for looks alone. I want someone who can capture Ezio's character, not just his appearance.

    My only concern with Michael Fassbender possibly playing Desmond or Altaïr is that he's a bit too old. Desmond was about 25, Fassbender is 36.

    Wasn't Magneto approximately 25-28 in X-Men: First Class movie? Looked pretty well there, in terms of age (or, well, perceived age).

    Well, 30 year olds have traditionally played high-school students in movies. lol Shouldn't be a problem...

    (At this point he may not even play Desmond, but another "surprise" descendant... )
