    the movie- i dont think Fassbender will be playing Desmond

    on the imdb page, it says its "rumoured" that he is to play Desmond and it would be a re-telling of AC 1...but i remember ubisoft saying they weren't going that direction

    i think its most likely it will be an original story in the universe that runs congruent to Desmond, maybe mentions of him, but i dont think fassbender will be playing as him

    I agree. I think including Desmond in the movie would be a misstake. They need to have some modern content, but I think they should do something fresh. Desomd wasn't that popular to begin with. And retreading his story feels very unappealing and pointless.

    Just give us a story about other modern day Assassins. What I hate most in movie adaptations are when they pick actors that don't look like the original characters. I don't care if the acting is splendid. If they don't look the role, they aren't the role. But that's just me being nitpicky. =P

    Desmond is more hated/ less liked then Connor. it would be a bad move from ubi to bring him back imo. I hope it will be a self contained story. Or some kind of prequel to ac5.

    If the movie is based on the game, then I have no hope. It would be doomed to fail like the POP movie.

    From what I've read, it looks like they are going to make the movie based on AC1. I'm not sure if the movie is going to stay true to the game plot and be successful.

    If Michael Fassbender is going to play Desmond... I'm curious to know who will play Altair.

    I really hope its an original story set in the same universe. you could even have Shaun show up seeing as his character model is identical to his voice actor

    IMO- I feel like without him, people who had never played the game probably wouldn't understand the premise behind the Animus. I guess using someone new would work too but I feel like they'll need that character for explanation.

    I never get this reasoning, I'd much rather see someone can act play the part than someone who looks vaguely like the character.

    I swear I sigh every time someone suggests Francisco Randez haha
