Trailer: LUCIFER, Season 1

Fox has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming TV series adaptation of the comic series Lucifer, published by Vertigo Comics. Spinning out of Neil Gaiman’s genre-redefining Sandman, the books were written by Mike Carey — who also wrote (among others) the Felix Castor urban fantasy novels, The Unwritten comic series (also published by Vertigo), and one of my favourite novels: The Girl With All the Gifts (Orbit).

The series is directed by Len Wiseman (Underworld), and stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer. I’m rather looking forward to this.

I would highly recommend the aforementioned The Girl With All the Gifts, as well the Lucifer comic series, which has been collected into five omnibus editions:

    • Well Constantine is a British character, and Lucifer first appeared in Sandman, written by a British author (and also, maybe, Hellblazer?). First comic storyline takes place in Berlin, so it’s not a US-centric character/series.

      But also, what wrong with them having British accents? Other than these two, which other major superhero characters in TV series have British accents?
