Michael Fassbender prepares to get all mythical

1 min read

Out of all the actors emerging in Hollywood today, Michael Fassbender has to be one of my favourites. A talented and skilled thespian, he’s also enjoyed a successful run on the silver screen lately, in films such as X-men First Class, Haywire and Shame.

And for his next role, he’s about to get all Celtic when he brings a legendary myth to life.

With a script written by Ronan “Public Enemies” Bennett, the film will focus on the Irish hero Cuchulain, from the Ulster Myth Cycle, a hero who was the Celtic equivalent of Achilles, who would often undergo intense battle frenzies before jumping into a fight.

While Fassbender will play the title character, there’s no word yet of a director or even a release date, so it may still be a while before we see the actor dip into his inner berserker.

In the meantime however, Fassbender is appearing in Prometheus, a film that as many a Xenomorph expert uncovering secrets to it’s prequely nature.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
