New rumours suggest that Robert Downey Jr., Hollywood’s most bankable leading man and star of the Iron Man movies, may be joining the cast of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
Apparently the mustachioed actor will be playing the role of Leonardo Da Vinci, suggesting that the movie may revolve around the plot and timeline of Assassin’s Creed II and the Ezio trilogy of Assassin’s Creed games. Interesting.
This latest rumour comes from Moviepilot, who reported the following:
“Huge Assassin’s Creed movie news just dropped recently and it seems like Iron Man Aka Tony Stark Aka Robert Downey Jr is reportedly joining the Assassin’s Creed movie cast as Leonardo Da Vinci.”
However, the post has since been removed by the website, possibly due to a request from the big-wigs in charge of production. So for now we’re sticking this one in the rumour bucket.
Brit Michael Fassbender is still attached to the Assassin’s Creed movie which is supposed to release sometime next year. Hopefully we’ll get more news soon because the lack of solid information on the Assassin’s Creed movie is making people doubt it’s even going to happen.
Do you think Robert Downey Jr. would be suited to the role of the renaissance man? Or should he get back in his Iron Man suit and never leave it? Shout out down in the comments.
