Michael Fassbender Dishes On 'Fantastic' Robot Role In 'Prometheus'

One of next year's releases that still remains shrouded in loads of mystery is undoubtedly Ridley Scott's "Prometheus." Starring Noomi Repace, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, the sci-fi thriller has puzzled movie fans since its announcement, but little has leaked through from the production.

That is until a recent plot description shed some light on the story from "Lost" co-creator, Damon Lindelof. As Lindelof confirmed to MTV News' Josh Horowitz, the story outline identified Fassbender's character as an android, in the vein of Bishop in "Aliens."

MTV News recently spoke with Fassbender about his robotic role in the upcoming mystery movie and Lindelof's claim that audiences will get a chance to see humanity through android eyes.

"I think it's one of those great things with a really good script writer. What Damon did with that script is fantastic," Fassbender says. "It allows the audience in on more information than the characters in the film."

"Prometheus" will be Fassbender's first movie after his breakout year in 2011. His role as Magneto in "X-Men: First Class" drew mainstream attention and hefty box-office numbers, while his dramatic roles in smaller movies like "A Dangerous Method" and "Shame" could garner Oscar recognition later this year.
