We finally have our first look at Michael Fassbender for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.

The image, which was first posted to Yahoo! Movies, shows Fassbender as Callum Lynch. This is interesting because it confirms that Fassbender’s role will be completely new and he wont be suiting up as Desmond Miles or any of the existing characters in the franchise.

According to the article, the movie will introduce all new characters to the franchise instead of rehashing ones we’ve already seen in the games.

In the movie, Callum Lynch discovers that he is a descendant of the Assassin order through genetic memories, much like Desmond has done in the games. Lynch relives the memories of Aguilar during the 15th Century in Spain. It is confirmed that Lynch will also be battling the Templar Knights.

Filming is set to begin Assassin’s Creed on August 31.
