L from upcoming live-action Death Note receives character poster

I'm actually really curious about Netflix's upcoming live-action adaptation of the anime DEATH NOTE. I really like director Adam Wingard's previous films THE GUEST and YOU'RE NEXT (haven't seen BLAIR WITCH yet), and I love the premise of the anime. Here's the official synopsis:

Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

And here's the poster for L, the young man's rival who tries to stop him from killing more people:

So fans of the anime, do you like what you see so far? Is L translated well into live-action? Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile, DEATH NOTE will stream on Netflix beginning August 25th.

Extra Tidbit: I'm still looking forward to the live-action AKIRA movie.
