    Default Netflix's the Sandman



    Netflix revealed the official cast for "The Sandman". Taron Egerton is rumored to reprise his role of John Constantine from the Audible version but that hasn't been confirmed yet.

    It feels like it's finally happening.

    I like the cast. They chose a total unknown for Morpheus, a theater actor, and that's a good idea.

    Based on the news, it seems they are starting with Preludes and Nocturnes. Though no word yet on Dr. Destiny. The Corinthian comes in Book 2 but is now in S1.

    Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess is excellent. Boyd Holbrook, i.e. Donald Pierce from LOGAN, as The Corinthian is great.

    There'll be fuss about the casting of ladies as Lucifer and the Librarian, but they are wrong, and Gwendoline Christie as the Lucifer from Gaiman's original run will be a cool take.

    I wonder who they'll cast as Death. Ideally it should be Margot Robbie, but Netflix can't afford her

    I could see them scrapping the DC connections. So maybe Doctor Destiny and Constantine wouldn't appear?

    Looks like they're changing Lucien up a bit and having Gwendoline Christie doing her best Tilda Swinton.

    Cain and Abel are perfect though.

    I think they could get away with Constantine, although it'd be a shame not to have Matt Ryan in this.

    Taron Edgerton was great in the audiobook. But in live action iono. He has a young boyish look to him not matter how old he gets. I'd prefer Constantine look like a grown man. I liked Matt Ryan, be nice to get him play a non NBC/CW version of the character.

    I haven't heard the audiobook yet (probably should give that a listen) but he always seemed like an unconventional take for adult Constantine to me.

    Would still like to see Lana Condor as Death.

    I still get the feeling they would scrap all the DC cameos/connections. Not out of hate but because of the rights being tied up or something. I could be wrong tho.

    It's a fact that The Sandman comic itself moved away from the DCU connections as time passed. It was strongest in Preludes & Nocturnes but less so from Book 2 onwards.

    Of course that doesn't stop said DCU connection from coming back to the forefront with a bang near the end...

    Where? Aside from cameos by Batman, Superman, Martian Manhuner at the Wake, it hardly figures at the finale of the story.

    spoilers:
    The new dream who replaces Morpheus ends up being Hector Hall and Lyta Trevor's child.
    end of spoilers

    Cameron Britton would be a good pick for Fiddler's Green.

    I never really got to read the comics (just a handful of random ones), so I have no expectations. I'm open to watching this to see how it unfolds. Since Neil Gaiman is directly involved, hopefully the fans won't call for his head if some episodes come out that they don't like.

    Death hasn't been revealed yet? What about Zoe Kravitz?

    The reaction I'm seeing to Lucifer's casting is embarrassing
