Fans had to wait a long time for this moment. Now, Netflix has finally shown the first motion pictures for the new adaptation of “The Sandman” — with “Game Of Thrones” star Charles Dance and lead actor Tom Sturridge.
“The Sandman” is a legendary comic series by author Neil Gaiman, who also created the character Lucifer, which we know from the successful series of the same name (it can be seen in this country on Amazon Prime Video). These comics are currently being adapted by Netflix and should satisfy even the most passionate fan of the cast. In any case, TUDUM Netflix fan event hosts were well aware of the fact that they were aware of the huge challenge of turning popular comics into a series. Netflix also released the first trailer for the movie “The Sandman”, thanks to which we can now get a first impression of the adaptation.
This is “The Sandman”
“The Sandman” is about Dream (Tom Sturridge), the ruler of the dream world, who is captured by a British astrologer at the beginning of the 20th century. The dream succeeds in liberation and then embarks on a campaign of revenge in which only the real problems begin…
Flashbacks to bygone eras are typical of “The Sandman,” whether it be the Middle Ages, antiquity, or early modern times. Mythical and historical characters are also intertwined in the plot, such as the gods of the North Odin, Loki, William Shakespeare or the aforementioned Prince of Hell Lucifer. Characters from other DC comics such as Martian Manhunter also appear from time to time. To what extent all of this will also apply to the Netflix adaptation of the series remains to be seen.
By the way, some famous actors of “The Sandman” have been confirmed so far. For example, the two stars of “Game Of Thrones” are Gwendolyn Christie and Charles Dance. The latter can already be seen in the trailer. The Sandman movie should come out in 2021. However, there is no definitive start date yet.
