Messiah Official Trailer
The trailer looks fantastic, but people around the world have mixed reviews. Some of the Twitter users have outraged on the show for the false portrayal of the god as the show is actually on Al Massih ad-Dajjal, meaning anti-christ. Spoilers ahead: It was also tweeted that the show focuses on a person who tricked people into the following the devil in the name of Jesus. Also, there are people who know the story informing that the dajjal is blind on one eye, meaning that he will also lose an eye in the show.
As all the spoilers come out, Netflix has again faced criticism for its inability to cope up with the expectations of non-English speaking people.
