NO SPOILERS: Netflix hasn’t announced the go-ahead for the fifth season of Lucifer yet, but no one believes that won’t happen at some point in the next 30 days.
But before that decision comes down, many are asking: Why not skip Netflix and take our favorite devil to the silver screen?
If ever there was a cast with an already made fan base solidly established, this is it.
Let’s consider reality:
DC movies have struggled against their Marvel counterparts.
The recent Superman and Batman films have been, let’s just say it: Bad.
By next Christmas (ironic) movie fans will be ready for a devil of a good time.
A witty and action packed romp could fill the void.
DC could make Lucifer their new big screen franchise.
Plus, Tom Ellis is going to be James Bond soon.
His movie career has already been preordained by God (or dad if we want to stay in character).
So, before that happens, why not take one of the most successful modern TV franchises and give it a film run?
Ellis, himself, has already suggested we’re at a good starting point, following the Season 4 cliffhanger, for a movie:
“I think we leave it in a place where, hopefully, people will be going, ‘You can’t leave it there!’ Which is always, you know, the key,” said Ellis last week.
DC and Warner Brothers need only look at the incredible fan response in the hours following Lucifer’s cancellation on Fox to its resurrection on Netflix for proof.
And think of all the new fans a big screen version would attract?
Each one of the series stars deserve some big screen love: Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, Lauren German as Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro as Dan Espinoza, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez, D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, and Rachael Harris as Linda Martin.
When Netflix saved Lucifer it only picked it up for an additional season.
Insiders say that Season 5 will be announced in the next 30 days.
If Twitter is any indication, that should be a no brainer.

Lucifer is trending today on Netflix at so many places…
The 11th of May is the Davil's Day apparently…
From martyrium to saintship by rising on the 8th…

It's music to my ears to know that they are already ideas for S5 and how to go on after the bittersweet finale of #LuciferSeason4 and it sounds promising?

That gives us enough time to let DC and Warner Brothers know we want a Lucifer movie!
It really is all about him, detective.
