We're finally getting new updates from The Sandman these days, thanks to DC FanDome. The latest poster from the highly anticipated Netflix series offers our first look at Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer.

Back in late September, we got a lot of updates from The Sandman on the online Netflix fan event TUDUM. In addition to the first teaser for the series adaptation of Neil Gaiman's graphic novels, the character posters for the Endless were unveiled.

Although there was no new trailer for The Sandman at DC FanDome, we still got an awesome tease for the upcoming Netflix show. The character poster for Lucifer was revealed at the event and it confirms that Christie is perfect for the role. Check it out below.

The second poster features Lucifer's wings along with the warning, "Never play games with Lucifer." It's a comic-accurate depiction of the character's wings and we're hoping to see more of it in the series.

The casting of Lucifer was an interesting one considering that people did not expect Christie to take on the role. However, the former Game of Thrones star is proving that she truly deserves the part.

All these updates on The Sandman is truly exciting considering that people have been waiting for the adaptation for decades. The project had been in production hell since the 1990s and Gaiman has turned down several proposals about it in hopes that someone would eventually get things right. Luckily, that's exactly what's happening with the live-action series for Netflix.

The Sandman will also star Tom Sturridge, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Mason Alexander Park, Donna Preston, Jenna Coleman, Niamh Walsh, Joely Richardson, David Thewlis, Kyo Ra, Stephen Fry, Razane Jammal, and Sandra James Young.

The series has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
