I might watch it. Iron Fist was disappointing, both in terms of its previous Marvel success stories like Luke Cage and Daredevil. Iron Fist was surprisingly mediocre, if not just bad. It is the Cars of Marvel's Extended Universe.

But yes, I want to see what L is like, and what changes they will make. If it is the same plot, I might drop.

The trailer didn't give a decent feel either way. Emo looking dude with a Death Note. Could work.

Iron Fist sucks? Damn, I have to watch it anyway tho.

I'm excited to see what the demon looks like, since its a movie they're probably gonna cut a lot but I don't mind, I already saw the series. I want to see their own twist of the story, because a detective genius that doesn't wear shoes and is always eating cake might look cool in anime but in real life.. eh.

I'd thought he'd be white. (To be fair, he is European in the anime)

I do not mind. L needs to be great for this show to work for me.


It is an American remake. Naomi Watts plays an Investigative reporter in The Ring, Oldboy with Spike Lee had Josh Brolin. It is not an outright adaptation, but one that takes place in America, presumably. I see nothing wrong with it. I mean, Light is white and played by Zac Effron. Heck, his name probably isn't Light. (Be funny if it were, and if L's name was changed to Dark.)

The trailer looked pretty good, I may watch it just to sate my curiosity, whether the movie is good or bad.

The trailer doesn't fill me with too much confidence, I think we're in for another underwhelming movie based on an anime here. Firstly the characters don't feel quite right, Light doesn't seem to have the self righteous authority and self confidence that he has in the anime and instead he seems to be styled as an emo teenager. Then we didn't get to see much of L, but he's being played by Keith Stanfield who is a rapper, what. At least the actors for Ryuk and Misa seem like great choices, especially Willem Dafoe who's lined up to play Ryuk.

Then we have the content of the trailer itself which had clips of people jumping off buildings, carnival wheels collapsing, police cars etc. It felt more like a trailer for an action movie compared to the anime which was much more about the mystery / crime drama. The caveat to this is that we've only had a c. 60 second trailer which can't be taken as a accurate representation of the full movie.

I'm trying to stay optimistic because Netflix usually produce relatively high quality material, but I just can't help feeling skeptical about this one...

I'm in it for Dafoe as Ryuk. That's excellent. I mean the dude even looks like Ryuk and has the perfect voice for him to boot.

I don't mind the Western take on the story, but I don't put much faith in anime to live action films. I'm expecting this to be bad, but I would love to be wrong.

The issues that I have with this is that the entirety of the plot is that "Light wins the battle of wits and kills L. It takes a group of other characters to take down Light eventually." Given that they made Light white and L black in this version it screams toward the "white savior" superiority god complex and I'm not into it. Also they could have easily have picked Asian actors since they set it in Seattle, which has one of the largest Asian populations per capita in the United States because it is a major port city. Like white is not the default setting for "person" or "American."

Mother's Basement did a pretty good breakdown on how the movie could be decent (and could be terrible).

His breakdown left me a little more interested than the trailer itself anyway.

i wonder how they will adapt the second half. a lot of fans were disappointed by certain events in the anime so i wonder if netflix considered that when writing the script for this.

It is a loose adaptation. So expect the same premise at most.

All that matters to me is L acts like L, we get a dramatic chip eating scene, and that Ryuk acts like Ryuk
