Michael Fassbender – whose mother was from Antrim and who was raised in Kerry – has done the serious art film thing, from Shame (which earned him a slew of award nominations) to 12 Years a Slave to his recent Shakespearean turn in MacBeth. So now it’s time to bring on the video games and superheroes! Next year, look for Fassbender in a film based on the popular game Assassin’s Creed, as well as in the latest X-Men film. Fassbender will also appear alongside Irish actor Brendan Gleeson in the British political thriller Trespass Against Us. ♦
