DC Fandome released its first look at Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer, and she’s giving us the perfect fallen angel vibes.
DC delivers plenty of sympathy for the Devil in its newest character posters. The images show actress Gwendoline Christie’s piercing eyes, angelic glow, and leathery wings. We’re all waiting patiently for The Sandman to premiere on Netflix, these images just increase the anticipation.
This epic story needs a lot of players to tell. The giant ensemble cast includes Tom Sturridge as Dream, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Mason Alexander Park (who is non-binary just like their character) as Desire, Donna Preston as Despair, Boyd Holbrook as the Corinthian, and Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the Raven.
Plus Vivienne Acheampong as Lucien, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain, Asim Chaudhry as Abel, Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, Joely Richardson as Ethel Cripps, David Thewlis as John Dee, Kyo Ra as Rose Walker, Stephen Fry as Gilbert, Rose, Razane Jammal as Lyta Hall, and Sandra James Young as Unity Kincaid.
Neil Gaiman and David Goyer (The Dark Knight, Krypton) are set as executive producers with Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) as showrunner and head writer.
Sandman premieres on Netflix in 2022.
Gentle, angelic curls and piercing stare? Sounds like the Devil herself…
In the comic, Lucifer’s wings play a vital role in the character’s journey.
