It's been an eventful weekend with plenty of exciting announcements coming out of San Diego Comic-Con, and the stunning final trailer for Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman that debuted last night is now online.
This latest teaser is packed full of new footage, as Morpheus sets about recovering his helm, ruby and pouch of sand on a quest that will take him to the Waking World and the gates of Hell itself.
We see more of Death, Desire, Lucifer, Abel, Gregory the Gargoyle, Johanna Constantine, as well as a first glimpse of The Corinthian without his shades on (yes, those are mouths were his eyes should be) and fan-favorite Dreaming caretaker Mervyn Pumpkinhead!
Check out the trailer below along with a new poster from Boss Logic and a video with Gaiman breaking down the promo for Vanity Fair.
"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, Mason Alexander Park as Desire, Charles Dance as black magician Roderick Burgess, and Sanjeeve Bhaskar as Cain. Joely Richardson will play Ethel Cripps, while 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 Doll's House."
