Netflix has revealed the first footage of Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer in its upcoming adaptation of The Sandman. The footage comes via the new trailer for Netflix Geeked Week 2022. Christie is technically playing the same Lucifer Morningstar that Tom Ellis played in the Lucifer series (those worlds are connected, after all). This Lucifer first appeared in The Sandman comics as the ruler of Hell before leaving for Earth, which is where the Lucifer spinoff comic book (the basis for the Lucifer television show) began. The scene in the trailer is straight out of the comics, where Dream (Tom Sturridge) must travel to Hell to reclaim one of his missing artifacts of power, his helm.

 

Neil Gaiman, the writer of The Sandman, previously explained why they cast a new actor in the role of Lucifer instead of bringing Tom Ellis back. "The theology and cosmogony of Lucifer is a long way from Sandman's," Gaiman said in response to a fan's question on Tumblr. "It's 'inspired by' Sandman, but you can't easily retrofit the Lucifer version to get back to Sandman, if you see what I mean. It seemed easier and more fun to have the Sandman version of Lucifer be, well, much closer to the Sandman version of Lucifer."

Didn't know too much back story on the Lucifer (Tom Ellis) TV series and connection with Sandman but did enjoy that show. If the writer is good with it, I'm good with it.
