With all the talk and focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Assassins Creed has started their promo for their upcoming film with the same title. The marketing has started with a viral website, not for Assassins Creed, but for Abstergo, the corporation that serves as the source for the present actions of the Templars and responsible for many plotlines in the videogame series. They are the corporation that developed the technology which allows Fassbender’s character to tap into his genetic memories, just like the video game franchise.
While the website (which you can click Here) offers very little, the film’s Twitter account has released a business card of the company’s CEO, Alan Rikkan, and when you call the number a recording will play the following:

“Hello, you’ve reached the voicemail of Alan Rikkin. I’ll be out of the office on business until March 25 with limited availability.”
While this mystery figure sounds alot like Jeremy Irons, who is in Assassin’s Creed, but as well as a film that opens on March 25th, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which Irons is also in. Is this a hint that the first trailer for the film is being attached to Batman v Superman?
