Why are they doing the second game?

Urgh, here we go, they are going to try and shove as much references into one story from all the games we have now to try and make it look like it's respecting the source material while straying away from the source material.

I like Michael Fassbender, I really do, but I don't think he knows what he's doing with this...he hasn't even played the games.

I have no issue with Fassbender....However - I don't see him as Ezio, or even Altair. On the flip side, I couldn't name anyone off the top of my head to take his place but I'm sure there's someone.

I do not think its upnto fassbender on the decisions being made. But that aside I can personally see downey Jr as da vinci for obvious reasons.

I think that casting would be awesome.

I agree, Downing would kill that role!! Hope it happens!

Seems to me other rumors said Fassbender was playing a Spanish Assassin during the Inquisition. Downey would certainly be more eccentric of a Leonardo than was ever in the games, but then, an AC movie should never just adapt the games anyway.
