The first images from the upcoming Netflix Luther film has revealed an initial look at Idris Elba as the titular role of DCI John Luther.

Elba reprises the role of Luther, which he played in the TV show over five series between 2010 and 2019 on BBC One. The film follows the character as he explores new terrain outside of London. In an interview with Empire, Elba talks about the new adventures of the detective, “We really peel the onion back here because we had the time and scale to do that. It also gives Neil [Cross] a lot more, you know, Luther-land to play with, in terms of where Luther can go, how he goes, what the landscape is.”

Elba continues to explain the setting of the film, “We break out of the gritty streets of London, we take it outside of that a little bit. And that’s great. It feels like now we’re entering a different life of the Luther experience.” Not only does Elba promise that the film will break boundaries but it is action-packed, “It’s eally dangerous when expanding from television to film to throw a lot of money at it, and for that moment to change the characteristics of the show. I wanted to make sure that even though we had a bigger budget, [we didn't] distort the parameters of Luther-land too much. We do amplify the action and do amplify the stakes. But [Season 3's] man-under-the-bed moment? That don’t cost you much money. Those moments are still intact.”

Luther is set to be released in March 2023.

In other entertainment news, Ryan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgård are rumored to play a major Marvel villain.
