THE SANDMAN: Enter The Dreaming In The First Teaser For Netflix's Neil Gaiman Adaptation

As promised, Netflix unveiled the first official teaser trailer and a series of character posters for its upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman during today's Tudum event. Take a look...

The first footage from Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman just debuted during the online TUDUM event, and while it doesn't reveal a whole lot about the story, fans of the comic books should be very happy with this brief introduction to Dream's world.

The teaser begins with black magician Roderick Burgess performing a ritual to capture and bind the Grim Reaper. Unfortunately for him and everyone present, he ends up imprisoning someone far more dangerous: Death's younger brother, Dream.

During his introduction, Gaiman confirmed that the voice we hear belongs to The Corinthian, an escaped nightmare who wreaks havoc in the Waking World as a sadistic serial killer.

Check out the promo below along with character posters for Dream, Death and Desire, and let us know what you think.

The Sandman stars Tom Sturridge as Dream, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Game of Thrones alum Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Logan actor Boyd Holbrook as sadistic escaped nightmare The Corinthian, Vivienne Acheampong (The Witches) as The Dreaming's loyal custodian Lucienne, Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as black magician Roderick Burgess, and Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror) and Sanjeeve Bhaskar (Yesterday) as Abel and Cain, respectively.

We recently learned that 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. Jenna Coleman will play John Constantine's great-great-great grandmother, Lady Johanna Constantine.

The 11-episode first season of The Sandman is expected to adapt the first arc of the Vertigo comics series, "Preludes and Nocturnes," which finds Dream captured by a black magician and held prisoner for the better part of a century. When he finally escapes, he sets about recovering three very important items, encountering Lucifer, John Constantine, Doctor Destiny, Martian Manhunter and more on his travels.

Gaiman is developing the show along with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. No premiere date has been set.
