Warner Bros. Television unveiled a first look at Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer in the upcoming Netflix series The Sandman, based on Neil Gaiman’s landmark comic book series for DC.
Based on Neil Gaiman’s renowned comic book series of the same name, Netflix’s long-awaited Sandman adaptation stars Tom Sturridge (Sweetbitter) as the titular character Morpheus, aka Dream of the Endless.
The streamer describes the series as “a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman will follow Dream — as well as those who’ve been affected by him — as he goes about putting right the mistakes he’s made during his very long existence.
The cast also includes: Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as Roderick Burgess, Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) as The Corinthian, Patton Oswalt (A.P. Bio) as the voice of Matthew the Raven, Kirby Howell-Baptiste (The Good Place) as Death, Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) as Johanna Constantine, Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck) as Ethel Cripps and David Thewlis (the Harry Potter films) as John Dee.
