The Sandman Netflix series

Post by Ophelia's Vengeance »

We finally have casting news!

https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2021/01/ ... daptation/

Tom Sturridge is Dream, Lord of Dreaming
Gwendoline Christie is Lucifer, Ruler of Hell
Vivienne Acheampong is Lucienne, chief librarian and trusted guardian of Dream’s realm
Boyd Holbrook is The Corinthian, an escaped nightmare who wishes to taste all that the world has in store
Charles Dance is Roderick Burgess, Charlatan, blackmailer and magician
Asim Chaudry is Abel and Sanjeev Bhaskar is Cain, the first victim and the first predator, residents and loyal subjects of the Dream Realm
I loved, loved Charles Dance and Gwendoline Christie in GoT and am excited for their casting. Really hope they get it right with this series. American Gods turned into a hot, hot mess after the first season, so fingers crossed.

I'm very excited to see it. So far, the casting sounds great. I'm trying to manage my expectations, which is hard because I've long believed that a Sandman series could be one of the best shows ever made (in the way that the comic was one of the best comic books ever made.) But a lot of things would have to go really well for that to happen, so I'm trying to be realistic. :D

With Neil's responses to the shows progress, I'm growing more excited about this adaptation.
