Fans of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman finally got a look at some new footage from the upcoming Netflix adaptation yesterday via a Geeked Week promo video, and the show's Twitter account has now debuted three new stills.

The images feature Game of Thrones alum Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Tom Sturridge as the titular Dream Lord as he rebuilds his realm, and we also have another shot of Morpheus as he converses with his loyal raven, Matthew, who will be voiced by Patton Oswalt.

We still don't have an official date for The Sandman, but it is expected to premiere at some point this year.

The Sandman also stars Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Logan actor Boyd Holbrook as sadistic escaped nightmare The Corinthian, 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 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."

I know opinions will differ, but I consider Neil Gaimen's run on Sandman, one of the most important comic runs of all time. The run brought me back to comics after a hiatus of ten years, along with the Vertigo titles such as Hellblazer, Lucifer, Books of Magic and Fables.

Looking forward to seeing how this series is adapted and recieved. I've previously enjoyed the adaptation of Gaimens other works American Gods and Bad Omens.

@hummingbird68 - He is one of my favorite writers. He does a great job setting the scene while still allowing your mind to fill in the blanks. Not over detailed and not missing detail, it is a true talent of his.

I didn't watch American Gods but really loved Bad Omens and Stardust. Hopefully this is good and they adapt more of his works

@Evansly - I've read all his books, including the short stories collections. And yes, Stardust and Coraline are also great :) There was also a British made six part series for Neverwhere, very much along the lines of the BBC's Dr.Who in terms of production and design.

They are making Anansi Boys as well :)

The Rick and Morty little Sandman skit was pretty funny. This looks really interesting though. I'm digging the aesthetics.

I’m excited but that guy just doesn’t look like Morpheus to me. He looks more angsty than broody. Hope I’m proven wrong though.

@OmegaBlack13 - he just looks a little young to me. I mean, Morpheus is basically the ultimate goth, so angsty kinda fits.

@RorMachine - Yeah but angsty in an otherwordly, spooky way. This guy just seems like someone I'd encounter in a coffee shop haha
