FanDome: Netflix’s ‘The Sandman’ Started Casting & Will Explore Modern Times
DC FanDome has explored all sides of the DC multiverse. We are still only halfway through for the day but quite a bit has been teased or revealed. Everything has gotten some attention and among all the panels was also one dedicated to The Sandman audio drama. With all the delays, it slipped through the cracks that Netflix was still hard at work at their incarnation of the iconic deity. Creator Neil Gaiman revealed that after everything got delayed due to the pandemic, it is slowly picking up again.
“Right now as the universal pause button is starting to come off, we’re starting to cast again. I’m getting these inspiring and wonderful emails with production designs with places that I’d only ever seen in the comics before, now being rendered in 3D, and I’m being asked to comment on it. That’s amazing.”
It’s great to see that production has started again. Gaiman has been deeply involved with both incarnations. So, it ensures that we will see something very close to what the original comic series has set-up. One detail he did reveal is that the Netflix adaptation would take place in modern times. So, we might get surprised by some changes after all to the iconic series.
