What power have dreams in hell?
As part of The Sandman panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Netflix has finally unveiled the long-awaited official trailer for their upcoming series inspired by the work of visionary author Neil Gaiman.
The Sandman was first published in 1988 by DC Comics and written by then-up-and-comer Gaiman as a reinvention of the obscure character, Morpheus. The story was originally marketed in the horror genre on the comic book market but received overwhelming success with readers outside of the comic book market. Gaiman says he was first offered to turn the story into a film in 1991, but it has taken three decades for the screen rights to come to fruition.
The series will star Tom Sturridge (Dream), Gwendoline Christie (Lucifer), Vivienne Acheampong (Lucienne), Boyd Holbrook (The Corinthian), Charles Dance (Roderick Burgess), Asim Chaudhry (Abel), and Sanjeev Bhaskar (Cain), amongst many others in the massive ensemble cast.
The Master of Dreams will awaken on August 5.
