The Sandman Trailer Teases The Corinthian, Lucifer & More
During San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Netflix unveiled a new trailer for The Sandman.
The trailer shows The Corinthian (Boyd Holbrook) and Lucifer (Gwendoline Christie). The former is a living Nightmare that looks like a man with no eyes, who was created by Dream (Tom Sturridge). The Sandman trailer also features Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the Raven, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Dream’s sister Death and Mason Alexander Park as Death’s sibling Desire.
Gaiman, who was against any attempt at adapting his “The Sandman” comic book series for more than 30 years, has said that the first season of Netflix’s “The Sandman” will be adapted from the first two graphic novels from the titular series. The first season will be ten episodes long.
Neil Gaiman said:
“What’s been so interesting about Season 1, which is basically the first two graphic novels — ‘Preludes and Nocturnes’ and ‘The Doll’s House’ — is how we keep going back to the comic. The comic is the place we go for problem-solving. When we get ourselves into trouble in the script, we’ll go back and go, ‘Well, what happened in the comic? How was that told?’ And pretty often that will give us the key to get out of trouble.”
There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep — a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he’s made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way.
Based on the beloved award-winning DC comic series written by Neil Gaiman, THE SANDMAN is a rich, character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy woven together over the course of ten epic chapters following Dream’s many adventures. Developed and executive produced by Gaiman, showrunner Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer.
The Sandman premieres on Netflix on 5 August 2022.
