Death Note Director Adam Wingard Compares Trump To A Supervillain

Adam Wingard, the director of the upcoming Netflix series Death Note isn't hiding is lack of love for President Trump.

In a panel at the San Diego Comic Con, Wingard was asked which super-villain scares him the most. It wasn't Doomsday, or even Lex Luther - it was “The President of the United States.” So, does that make the White House his lair? Or is that Mara Lago?

No word if Wingard would consider writing Trump's name in the book, but I think it might be a possibility.

Wingard, who's casting decisions and own role as director has been brought into question by many fans for whitewashing still seemed excited by the show. "I’ve been on this film for a better part of two years. This is a film that’s had a lot of assumptions and expectations built on it, and the best thing we can do at this point is just show you the goddamn movie. I think we’re very proud of the film."

"[Taking the job as director]...was an opportunity to take something that had a great premise and breath life into it. In terms of what happens is so outlandish: the power to kill everything by writing their name in a book. There were cool themes here and embedded in that was good and evil."

From Netflix: 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.”
