During Geek Week, Netflix unveiled the first complete trailer for the series, so keep reading below.
The titles that the event will cover include The Sandman, The Gray Man, The Umbrella Academy, and a lot more, but we are interested in The Sandman news today. With the recently announced lineup update, you now know when to tune in and follow the event. But what is up with The Sandman news?
The Sandman Netflix
The Sandman teaser provides fans with their first clear glimpse, and we were really excited when they announced the news! We now know what Executive Producer Neil Gaiman and his team have been working on, and it looks like they were sweating off for the darker aspects of the DC Universe. Dream, Death, Desire, and Lucifer are all resurrected in the teaser, so we are sure fans will be hyped up to see them! The teaser is a fascinating watch, and the video also confirms that the series will air on August 5th, so make sure you have nothing to do on that day!
At the beginning of the series, Morpheus is kidnapped by an immortality-seeking person and he gets away to restore order. After that event, the narrative grows into a book series that reveal Morpheus’ long-term strategy as he wants to create amends for previous wrongdoings and flee.
The Sandman Cast
We will also announce the cast of the show while revealing The Sandman news. Tom Sturridge plays Dream who is the Lord of the Dreaming, Gwendoline Christie plays Lucifer who is the Ruler of Hell, Vivienne Acheampong plays Lucienne who is the guarding of the Dream’s realm, Boyd Holbrook plays the Corinthian who is an escaped nightmare, and Charles Dance plays Roderick Burgess. There are also additional cast members including Jenna Coleman, Stephen Fry, Patton Oswalt, David Thewlis, and Joely Richardson.
The Sandman Comic Books vs. TV Series
Sandman’s audiobook has Gaiman as a storyteller and James McAvoy as Morpheus and Gaiman revealed the adjustment process and how the audiobook varies from the television show. You can listen to the audio from an episode beneath, and it is taken from the legendary “The Sound of Her Wings” chapter that reveals Morpheus’ elder sister Death and can see the difference between the comic books and the TV series Sandman.
Gaiman claimed during the events that “When it comes to the Sandman, we were thinking what to do. I said let’s pretend I’m doing Sandman commencing in 2020, but what would we do then and what changes could we make in the show? What gender would you assign to this character, who would s/he be, and what would happen in the show?”. The fact that they have 75 issues of Sandman plus, they actually have a lot of material and it’s not a disadvantage.
