so there’s that rumor that michael fassbender is going to play altair in the ass creed movie and a lot of people are getting angry over white washing
as a middle eastern person, i’m not angry about it???
cause fassy is a white dude, yeah but
lots of people from syria and lebanon ARE ginger and white skinned so idk i’m a white passing lebanese person and idk i think it’s not that big of a deal?
especially once you consider the fact that altair IS white passing, despite being syrian. i mean shit, ezio (a white man) is darker than altair so like
yeah, it would be better to have a syrian dude play altair but i still don’t think fassbender playing altair is white washing because fassbender and altair have the same skin color
Michael Fassbender in London shooting The Counselor on Wednesday August 1.
…There should be a story where those two meet, don’t you think? ;)
good god fassbender
I really want one of those little drawings of Magneto being all ‘kill ALL the humans 8’D’.
Somebody should make this happen. Or send me in the right direction if it already has.
Charles: Shaw’s declared war on mankind on all of us, he has to be stopped.
Erik: I am not gonna stop Shaw, I am gonna kill him. Do you have it in you to allow that? (Erik pauses while Charles shifts in his chair uneasy) …You known all along why I was here Charles, but things have changed. What started as a covert of mission, tomorrow mankind will know mutants exist. Shaw, us, they won’t differentiate. They’ll fear us. And that fear will turn to hatred.
Charles: Not if we stop a war, not if we can prevent Shaw, not if we risk our lives doing so.
Erik: Would they do the same for us?
Charles: We have it in us to be the better man.
Erik: We already are! We are the next stage of human evolution, you said it yourself…
Charles: (cuts in) No, no…
Erik: Are you really so naive as to think that they won’t battle their own extinction? Or is it arrogance?
Charles: (looks at Erik in disagreement) I am sorry.
Erik: After tomorrow, they are gonna turn on us. But you are blinded because you believe they are all like Moira.
Charles: And you believe they are all like Shaw… (leans forward) Listen to me very carefully, my friend: killing Shaw will not bring you peace.
Erik: Peace was never an option.
Erik: What an adorable lab rat you make, Charles.
Charles: Don’t ruin this for me, Erik.
Erik: I’ve been a lab rat. I know one when I see one.
And all I thought was here to stay, slowly is going.
