A host of new images from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed film reinvigorates fan excitement for the upcoming project, but could one of these scenes contain a notable spoiler for the story?
The movie’s narrative follows a conventional Assassin’s Creed template with the modern-day Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) exploring the memories of his 15th-century assassin ancestor, Aguilar (also Fassbender), during the Spanish Inquisition. The movie will hop back and forth between these two characters, and while the majority of the new stills show Aguilar doing his assassin thing 600 years ago, there is one image that is catching the eyes of fans more than others.
The image above depicts who seems to be Aguilar, but he is standing in what is unmistakably one of the facilities run by Abstergo, the company behind the Animus technology that allows subjects’ consciousnesses to explore the past. There are a handful of theories for what is taking place in this scene. A more boring proposition would be some obscure dream sequence, but considering the fact that subjects in the Assassin’s Creed universe can learn things from ancestors through the Animus, a more interesting possibility is that Lynch is about to employ his new assassin skills to try and escape the facility?with the adoption of Aguilar’s appearance reflecting the games’ so-called “bleeding effect,” which blurs the line between the minds of Animus users and their ancestors.
The remaining new stills can be found below.
The film is set to hit theaters on December 21st in the U.S.
