Netflix is adapting Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s bestselling thriller manga, Death Note, into a live-action movie. Now, director Adam Wingard has revealed a new poster for the movie, and it teases us what the Shinegami, Ryuk, would look like in the movie. Spider-Man actor, Willem Dafoe, who played Green Goblin, is voicing Ryuk for the movie.

So far, Ryuk actually looks good, and that apple really takes it home that this is actually the Shinegami we know and love. Fans are hoping that Dafoe brings some justice to the character, as he did for Spider-Man antagonist, Green Goblin.

Netflix will show the manga-based live-action movie starting August 25, 2017. The movie stars The Fault in Our Stars’ Nat Wolff as Light Turner (Light Yagami), Straight Outta Compton’s Keith Stanfield as L, and The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley as Mia Sutton (Misa Amane). Masi Oka, who played Hiro in the Heroes TV series, will not only be producing the movie, but will also play a role in it.
