"I don't know," Michael Fassbender responded when asked whether he knows anything about a possible sequel to Prometheus. Back in June, a writer was found (Transcendence's Jack Palgen), but we've heard very little since. As for Ubisoft's planned big screen adaptation of their Assassin's Creed video game franchise, the actor was asked when it will be shooting and said, "It's happening. It'll be next year sometime." Finally, Fassbender was quizzed about his role as 'Magneto' in X-Men: Days of Future Past, adding: "It will be a must-see experience. Is there anything I can reveal? Nope!" Which of these movies are you guys most looking forward to? Sound off below!

Only reason I loved first class was because of his Magneto....
Roscoe182 - 9/18/2013, 12:53 AM
an AC film could be great .. but i seem to draw a blank on ANY good films that come from games.
KidGoku - 9/18/2013, 12:57 AM
So is there any confirmation that the film will be based on the games? Or is it an original story?
Roscoe182 - 9/18/2013, 12:59 AM
im sure they wont use anything from the game other than the name...

film will probs be about a middle aged black man fighting some sort of illness.
souNdwAve89 - 9/18/2013, 1:01 AM
No news on the AC movie. It's still early too. My guess is that they will follow the style of the Prince of Persia movie, where it used elements of the games while having an original story. Perhaps it might even be a spin off that is still connected to the current AC universe/lore.
SoundWave - 9/18/2013, 1:12 AM
@ZombieBue same here) But Bacon also was good villain. Other in X-men: Fist Class is a crap...

He not say something interesting, even Jackman tells more. Sad.
Lozzy - 9/18/2013, 1:17 AM
Fassbender FTW!!!!!
HeroWithAThousandFaces - 9/18/2013, 1:21 AM
AC will be the first good video game adaptation on film. Mark my words.
JDUKE25 - 9/18/2013, 1:23 AM
So.....nothing new.
jerryblake - 9/18/2013, 1:25 AM
Jackman recenly stated that new X - Men movie is like 3 movies in one.

Here's hope Singer is not only focusing on previous characters, but new ones as well. Wouldn't wanna see Sy as Bishop in some 10 minutes cameo role.

3 movies in one sounds like they are also focusing on future X - Men team members.
jerryblake - 9/18/2013, 1:28 AM
wonder how long is XM:DOFP gonna be ... 2,5 hour ?
Tony93 - 9/18/2013, 1:39 AM

rebellion - 9/18/2013, 2:05 AM
thanks for nothing
SwagInScience - 9/18/2013, 3:24 AM
First off, he's one of the best actors in the world.
Second, Assassins Creed.
SpectacularJoShFest - 9/18/2013, 3:42 AM
One of the best actors in the world......



LMFAO...while I will agree he's a good actor,that statement made me laugh hard and it honestly made me spill my beer.....okay...enough Internet for me today.

*mumbles* best actor in the world... *mumbles*

I knew it! Lindsay Lohan doesn't swallow.
MightyZeus - 9/18/2013, 4:05 AM
I care a bit about X men DOFP and his portrayal of Magneto was pretty good. Prometheus 2 i hope will be developed some time soon and as for AC...it's a video game adaptation and we all know how films based on video games do.

CapA - 9/18/2013, 4:07 AM
"fans will be happy" ? A comic-book fan happy ? No such thing...
TelaVizion - 9/18/2013, 4:10 AM
lmao @ SpectacularJoShFest
TelaVizion - 9/18/2013, 4:11 AM
AC movie should focus on other assassins outside of Desmond's family like the comics do.
TheDpool - 9/18/2013, 4:20 AM
Man of few words...
genesis609 - 9/18/2013, 5:26 AM
Fassbender would have been a GREAT dr doom or baron zemo
TheRationalNerd - 9/18/2013, 5:27 AM
Man oh man I'm anxiously awaiting some Prometheus 2 news! Loved that movie!! :D
TheRationalNerd - 9/18/2013, 5:28 AM
@genesis609

I know right?! Since he's German and all...
GodzillaKart - 9/18/2013, 6:03 AM
The terrible, stupid, idiotic, vapid writing of Prometheus made it one of the worst movies in recent history. Worse than that, given how great it could have been and the legacy it was continuing, it is probably the biggest missed cinematic opportunity of the last decade.

Best to just let it die.

Fassbender was great in it, however.
knocturnalzen10 - 9/18/2013, 6:08 AM
@genesis609

he'd be an excellent doom ........... agreed
FerFogs - 9/18/2013, 6:29 AM
Loved Prometheus, watched it again the other day and now I like it even more.



Pretty stoked for an AC movie, and after The Wolverine my expectations for DOFP were increased.
FerFogs - 9/18/2013, 6:32 AM
Sad times we're living on BTW, that folks have to make videos to explain a movie to people who can't take a story open to interpretation.

Makes me wonder if 2001 or Blade Runner were released nowadays.
40oz - 9/18/2013, 6:33 AM
I hope they do a Prometheus 2. Loved the first one. They left it wide open which is good and bad. Great cinematography, effects, and the score really sounded great with the whole theme of "discovery" in the film. Im not going to talk shit on it, since everyone else does.
FerFogs - 9/18/2013, 6:48 AM
^^ that makes 2 of us :P
Jollem - 9/18/2013, 7:30 AM
horray for prometheus 2 and dofp! make mine mutants
wcwpoet - 9/18/2013, 7:52 AM
My enthusiasm for DOFP has diminished greatly. I want it to be great, but after seeing how The Wolverine acknowledged the nonsense that was X3 and Singer's comments it leaves me a bit pessimistic.
breakUbatman - 9/18/2013, 8:55 AM
@Ferfogs


But if it's open to interpretation why explain it, surely those who don't like it interpreted it differently from those who did like it and therefore have a valid viewpoint.


Either way looking forward to all the above mentioned movies
SimpleeComplex - 9/18/2013, 9:04 AM
Fass owned X-men FC. Curious how they will use him in DOFP. We still don't even know if Mystique will leading the Washington DC assassination like in the comic. Or maybe it's young Magneto and Mystique??

@SpectacularJoShFest
I'm assuming you haven't seen Shame or Hunger. Plus he's coming in 12 Years a Slave, which people are calling the best film of the year. He's one of the most versatile actors who's done blockbusters working today. He can go from something like X-Men to an NC-17 drama about sex addiction, and from an Alien film to a brutal film about slavery. Unlike other actors who do the same shit in almost anything COUGHJOHNNYDEPPCOUGH
TMP - 9/18/2013, 9:58 AM
Oh, and he kicked ass in Inglorious Basterds too, and The Counselor looks pretty great.
Indy - 9/18/2013, 11:21 AM
GeekOfKrypton - 9/18/2013, 12:23 PM
Hopefully there is an awesome display of Magneto's powers in this one.
ABH1979 - 9/18/2013, 12:36 PM
I actually do think Fassbender is one of the best actors, of his generation, though you'd have to venture away from his CBM/Sci-Fi movies, to see it...
Battabing - 9/18/2013, 3:21 PM
I'm sorry, is anyone asking for a Prometheus sequel?
