"Assassin's Creed" the movie offered something for fans of the "Assassin's Creed Video Game." The movie narrated the story of Callum Lynch played here by Michael Fassbender, who was unaware that he belonged to an Assassin family. The Templars faked his execution, but they failed to make him bend to their wishes.
The "Assassin's Creed" movie ended with Michael Fassbender, as Callum Lynch, killed the leaders of The Templar's He regained his memories and escaped along with his fellow prisoners who turned out to be watching out for him. This ending was not, however, supposed to be the chosen one for the movie.
A few months after the "Assassin's Creed" was shown, it turned out there was another ending option for Michael Fassbender's character, according to Screenrant. While the movie showed a few of his prisoner friends survived after the fight scene inside the prison facility, there as an option to get all of the prisoners killed.
This alternative ending for the "Assassin's Creed" would make Michael Fasbender's character the sole survivor. He would infiltrate The Templar's' meeting and would kill their leader Dr. Alan Rikkin played by Jeremy Irons. The test audience, however, would not accept the alternative ending and the rest is history.
"We used this in the preview screening and people were not satisfied with him being alone. They definitely wished for him to have a tribe, to be initiated into something," editor Christopher Tellefsen said.
The "Assassin's Creed" ending showed that the prisoners were just waiting for the right moment to fight the guards. It showed that the laboratory machinations of The Templar's only empowered Michael Fassbender's character and his prisoner friends.
The "Assassin's Creed Video Game" offered gamers the thrill of singlehandedly taking on an army, but with the backing of recruits when needed. The same twist was used in the "Assassin's Creed" movie where Michael Fassbender's character was portrayed as a lonesome character who ended up with new-found friends.
Fans of the "Assassin's Creed" are eager to see the next installment of the movie. The ending that left Michael Fassbender's character alive gave everyone the idea that the video game turned movie was intended to be a franchise, according to Collider
