Assassin’s Creed begins shooting next month, but we got to see a first look into Michael Fassbender’s costume for the new film. Yahoo Movies released the photo earlier today of Fassbender in his full assassin outfit.

Based on the popular video game series of the same name, Fassbender will be playing Callum Lynch, an entirely new character that was never in the game. Please note, the movie isn’t going to be retelling any of the game stories. This will have an entirely new characters, but all fixed in the same world. In the film, Lynch discovers he’s a descendant of Aguilar, an 15th century assassin from a secret Assassins society in Spain. He experiences his ancestor’s adventures and gains the knowledge and skills to take on the Knights Templar present day.

Directed by Justin Kurzel, the film also stars Marion Contillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Ariane Labed.
