THE SANDMAN Set Photo Gives Us Our First Look At Kirby Howell-Baptiste As Death

We recently got our first glimpse of Tom Sturridge as Dream, and thanks to a new photo from the set of Netflix's upcoming adaptation of The Sandman, we now have a look at Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death!

A brief video from the set of The Sandman recently found its way online, giving us our first proper look at star Tom Sturridge as the titular Lord of Dreams in his street clothes. Now, a new photo has revealed our first glimpse of Kirby Howell-Baptiste as his big sister, Death!

It's not the clearest image, but the Cruella actress does appear to be garbed in a similar outfit to her comic book counterpart, and seems to be wearing the character's signature pendant/sigil around her neck.

Death is arguably the character Sandman fans are most looking forward to seeing brought to life in live-action, so this first look is sure to stir up plenty of discussion.

Sturridge and Baptiste join Game of Thrones alum Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Logan actor Boyd Holbrook as sadistic escaped nightmare The Corinthian, Vivienne Acheampong (The Witches) as The Dreaming's loyal custodian Lucienne, Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as black magician Roderick Burgess, and Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror) and Sanjeeve Bhaskar (Yesterday) as Abel and Cain, respectively.

We recently learned that Desire and Despair will be played by Mason Alexander Park and Donna Preston, respectively, while Joely Richardson will play Ethel Cripps, and David Thewlis will take on the role of her son John Dee, aka the deranged Dr. Destiny. Jenna Coleman will play John Constantine's great-great-great grandmother, Lady Johanna Constantine.

The 11-episode first season of The Sandman is expected to adapt the first arc of the Vertigo comics series, "Preludes and Nocturnes," which finds Dream captured by a black magician and held prisoner for the better part of a century. When he finally escapes, he sets about recovering three very important items, encountering Lucifer, John Constantine, Doctor Destiny, Martian Manhunter and more on his travels.

Gaiman is developing the show along with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. No premiere date has been set.
