Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer in 'The Sandman'

The trailer for Geeked, the virtual macro event where Netflix will present previews of its content, has already been released and the comments, both good and bad, have not been long in coming. In the case of ‘The Sandman’, one of the most anticipated series of the year, they have been eminently negative, so The author of the original comic, Neil Gaiman, has come out in defense of the production.

The reactions have concentrated around the first glimpse of Gwendoline Christie (‘Game of Thrones’) as Lucifer in the brief sequences that can be seen from ‘The Sandman’. The confirmation of the actress as the Devil occurred a long time ago, being able to see a first characterization last year. Nevertheless, fans of the graphic novel have given free rein to their angry criticism through Twitter, a social network through which Gaiman has been in charge of responding to them.

To the comment of a user saying “not my Lucifer”claiming that the fact that he is played by a woman makes it impossible for her to identify him as the original villain, Gaiman replies that “not my problem”, settling the matter directly. However, other fans have wanted to elaborate their criticism a little more.

“Didn’t you say you hated it when they changed a character from their source material? Netflix must have handed you a giant check to forget your own words”said one user, to which Gaiman replied: How exactly has the character changed? Is it because of the penis? Voucher. Lucifer in the comics didn’t have a penis, and I think Gwendoline Christie doesn’t either. The dialogue is the same. It’s because Gwendoline is taller than Lucifer in ‘The Sandman’ comics right?.

Another user comments that “Originally, Lucifer is depicted as male in the comics. And John Constantine?”. Neill Gaiman pulls from memory to answer him, saying that Lucifer was not male, he was a genderless fallen angel. Do you remember when we saw Lucifer naked? Or Duma and Reimel?”.

“You’re putting a dress on her and making her obviously female. I bet someone will even call her Lady Lucifer instead of just being an androgynous god wearing flowing long sleeves and pants who is only referred to as Lucifer.”another fan argued. In this case, Gaiman states that it’s still Lucifer. the rest is in your head.

The Sandman’ is one of the most acclaimed and praised graphic novels in history, which is why Netflix put Gaiman himself to develop it along with Allan Heinberg and David S. Goyer.
