Death Note fans, brace for footage! It seems like Netflix will be giving anime fans their first-look at its take on the supernatural series soon enough. Many have wondered just when the site would give a glimpse of Adam Wingard's live-action take on Death Note. And, if the director is to be believed, then that day is almost upon us all.
Taking to Twitter, Wingard sent Death Note fans into a frenzy when he shared a new update with fans today. The director posted a photo of him editing footage, and his caption gave fans some much-needed hope.
"Coloring a certain teaser which shall not be named," Wingard wrote.
Of course, the director then used an emoticon at the tweet's end to tease fans just a bit longer. In the past, Wingard has made it clear that footage of Death Note would be coming sooner rather than later.
Last month, Wingard gave his first hint to fans with a riddled Twitter update. Wingard posted a hand-drawn picture filled with disoriented letters. However, if you take a moment to put the photo together, the phrase, "Death Note teaser coming soon[.] Stop asking," can be read.
You can read up on Death Note below thanks to Viz Media's Synopsis:
"Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects—and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But will Light succeed in his noble goal, or will the Death Note turn him into the very thing he fights against?"

If you are not familiar with Death Note, then you should know the popular series is no shy about its dark, violent overtones. Originally published as a manga, Death Note tells the story of Light Yagami after the high school student comes across a strange notebook with deadly powers. Should the journal's owner inscribe someone's name in its pages, the intended victim will die. Intoxicated by his godlike power, Light begins to kill those he deems unworthy while local police frantically try to discover the culprit behind these mysterious deaths.
