Writer Neil responded to a fan on Twitter who asked why Tom wasn’t asked to play Lucifer.
He said: “Because his Lucifer, while inspired by the Lucifer in Sandman, is so far off in terms of continuity from Sandman at the end of LUCIFER, that it’s easier for everyone to go back to the version in comics. And that way you don’t know what our Lucifer is going to do. Tom’s is adorable.
