New Assassin's Creed Photos Feature Callum Lynch and Aguilar

Michael Fassbender is playing two characters in the upcoming Assassin's Creed film: an assassin living in the present named Callum Lynch, and his ancestor, Aguilar. And these two new images that 20th Century released give us a glimpse of both characters. The one above is Callum Lynch, and he's fighting in modern day in Abstergo, while the one in the bottom is Aguilar in full costume. I wonder how their personalities will be different. It looks like Aguilar is more experienced, more badass while Callum Lynch is trying to get to his ancestor's level. The tweet comes with the line "We work in the dark to serve the light", and I could imagine that we'll hear that a lot in the film.

Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.
