The uniquely created character of the movie!
The makers created Margaret Qualley’s Death Note character Mia, uniquely for the film. Mia was shown somewhat closer in personality to Light seen in the manga. Mia and Light form a duo soon after Light discovers the book and the potential it has.
But Light strictly limits the willingness of who will be killed. This starts to frustrate Mia. The end reveals how she secretly wrote names without Light’s knowledge and threatens to kill him, too, unless he hands over the ownership of Death Note to her.
Death Note 2 might see Emma Roberts joining the original cast of the film.
