Adam Wingard revealed on twitter a poster for the live action film which shows the Shinigami, Ryuk who is voiced by Willem Dafoe. I think Willem Dafoe will make a perfect Ryuk, he definitely has the voice for it. The Death Note film will be streamed by Netflix on August 25.
Look at how awesome this poster looks! Sure Ryuk, looks different but I’m pretty sure he will act exactly like he did in the anime so it should be fine. I think. I’m not sure if I’ll watch this live action of Death Note as if feel there are too many problems with it.
When the film was first announced I honestly was excited but when the teaser trailer dropped, that excitement disappeared so fast. Even though I’m not as interested in this live-action film as I was before, I still hope it sticks to some of the source material but live-actions usually find their own path and that’s normally a bad thing.
What do you think of this poster?
You can watch the teaser trailer here if you haven’t already.
