We're now just over five weeks away from the debut of The Sandman, and Netflix has shared a new promo banner for its small-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's seminal comic series on the streamer's official page for the show.
The image gives us another look at Morpheus (Tom Sturridge) as he surveys the realm known as The Dreaming.
We found out yesterday that Warner Bros. Discovery would have a (smaller than usual) presence at San Diego Comic-Con next month, and while most of the studio's upcoming DC movies are not expected to be showcased to any significant degree, there is a Hall H panel planned for The Sandman. Some new footage is anticipated, and Collider's Steve Weintraub has heard that the first episode may even screen for those in attendance.
The Sandman is set to premiere on August 5. Check out the new banner below, along with the recently released trailer, and let us know what you think.
"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."
The Sandman also stars Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as black magician Roderick Burgess, and Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror) and Sanjeeve Bhaskar (Yesterday) as Abel and Cain. Desire and Despair will be played by Mason Alexander Park and Donna Preston, respectively, while Joely Richardson will play Ethel Cripps, and David Thewlis will take on the role of her son John Dee, aka the deranged Dr. Destiny.
The 10-episode first season of The Sandman will adapt the first two arcs of the Vertigo comics series, "Preludes and Nocturnes" and "The Dolls House."
