Michael Fassbender's Assassin's Creed
movie, scheduled for release in August 2015, may have just added another blockbuster star to the cast list.
Robert Downey Jr. was added to the IMDb cast list earlier today, leading to conflicting reports about which character the Iron Man
star would play. It is still unclear who any of the cast will be playing
in the adaptation, however the most popular rumor is that Downey Jr. will play Leonardo Da Vinci opposite the portrayal of Desmond Miles by Michael Fassbender.
If these rumors lead to an official announcement, this will make 2015 another huge year for Robert Downey Jr., who made his mark as the comeback king starting with the 2005 detective comedy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
. The original MoviePilot article which reported the new signing has since been taken down, leading to speculation that this might be a hoax.
Whilst it's possible that this news could be true, it's still unclear whether Iron Man will take a backseat into a mentor role as Da Vinci. The movie, directed by up and coming filmmaker Justin Kurzel, will follow the plot of the video game series and will see Desmond Miles, a normal bartender, captured by a large corporation due to his ancestry and forced into a machine known as "The Animus".
