Netflix releases a new image from The Sandman show revealing another look at Game of Thrones and Star Wars star Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer.
A picture of The sand man shows a new take on Lucifer’s costume. Gwendoline Christie stars as the ruler of Hell in Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s DC Comics series. The British actress rose to fame for her role as Brienne of Tarth in The iron Throne (for which she received an Emmy nomination in 2019) and is also well known for portraying First Order Stormtrooper Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and briefly in The Last Jedi.
There have been many attempts to adapt The sand man onscreen since 1991, including a feature with Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring and directing, who left the project over creative differences in 2016. Producers Gaiman and David S. Goyer later took the project to Netflix , who signed a deal to produce the series in 2019. Two-time Tony nominee Tom Sturridge leads The sand man cast as Morpheus, aka Dream, alongside Christie as Lucifer and Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry and Sanjeev Bhaskar in supporting roles. But The sand man doesn’t yet have a 2022 release date, Netflix recently ramped up its promotional campaign with various looks at the fantasy series.
Now Netflix has unveiled a new image of The sand man show revealing another look at Lucifer. Posted via the Netflix show’s official Twitter account, the photo is captioned “Have you just joined forces?and features Gwendoline Christie in costume as the series’ ruler of Hell. Check out Lucifer’s new look below:
The image was released shortly after the first images of Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer were revealed in Netflix’s Geeked Week 2022 trailer, where she can be seen sporting silky white robes with black wings. This latest look now shows Lucifer in an all-black, shiny leather outfit. The first look at Christie’s Lucifer debuted at last year’s DC FanDome event, revealing the character’s curly blonde hair and a close-up of his bat-like wings.
All of these looks revealed a Lucifer consistent with the character’s original appearance in the comics, mainly the golden locks and black wings, a far cry from the depiction seen in the 2016 Lucifer television series starring Tom Ellis. Gaiman and company considered bringing Ellis back as Lucifer, but since his version would have required too many reworks to The sand man, they finally opted for a more faithful interpretation of the comics. Expect More Lucifer Looks, Accurate From Christie’s Comics, And Maybe A Release Date For The sand man which will be unveiled during Netflix’s virtual Geeked Week event next month.
