An incredibly handsome, virile warrior who changes in battle, becoming an unrecognizable creature whose warcry alone can literally destroy his enemies. A man whose destiny is to achieve everlasting fame—but whose life will be all too short. A hero who goes through innumerable tests to finally be with the love of his life.
The Alpha Male from your favorite paranormal romance? Sounds a lot like it, especially since he is so beautiful that all the men around him worry that he’ll seduce their wives and daughters.
But no, it’s Cúchulainn, the legendary mythological Irish folk hero whose story will be told on the big screen—portrayed by half-Irish Michael Fassbender, no less.
Oh, yeah. Nice casting. Nice story. Just all the way around niiicccee.
Do you think Fassbender is overexposed yet (and not in a good way)? Or are you looking forward to seeing him rock the big screen, yet again, being furious while not wearing very much?
