Netflix has officially released all episodes of its direct adaptation of DC Comics and Vertigo’s hypnotic Caricature. hypnotic It features a cast of stars such as Tom Sturridge as Morpheus/Dream and even Gwendolyn Christie as Lucifer. The first season of the series didn’t begin to dive deeper into Sandman lore, but the producers behind the series already have an idea of where they’re headed next. Executive Producer Alan Heinberg recently revealed that he and Neil Gaiman already know who they’d like to play Orpheus, son of Morpheus and Calliope.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that, but we talked about someone we feel very strongly about,” Heinberg told diverse. “And we’ve had those conversations and if we get a second season, we’d like to be able to pick that person. We’re envisioning the whole season with that person in mind.”
Recently, Gaiman revealed while speaking with Entertainment Weekly why he refused to come to Sandman’s previous projects.
“I declined to be involved,” Gaiman said of previous edits, most recently Joseph Gordon-Levitt being associated with both the direct and the star. “I refused to write it; I refused to be the executive producer. I don’t because I knew that if I did, I would lose the only power I had, the ability to speak out against a bad Sandman movie. Fortunately, Sandman was too costly for anyone to justify making it.” If you’re trying to make a Sandman movie, the first question is, What do you have to get rid of? Because Sandman, by the time it was finished, was 3,000 pages of comics. So what’s your movie?”
Gaiman went on to recall some bad tweaks that almost happened, including a version of Pulp Fiction co-writer Roger Avary that ended as soon as he pitched it to Warner Bros. bosses. He also spoke of a version of Producer John Peters (from Kevin Smith’s Superman movie with giant spider fame), adding, “There was a version of the script, and I’ll never forget the first line: ‘Aha, mortal idiot! As if your petty weapons could harm me, the great lord of dreams, the hypnotist! And it got worse from there.”
Tom Sturridge leads the all-star cast of the series, who plays the titular character and Lord of Dreams. He plays alongside Gwendolyn Christie as Lucifer, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Asim Choudary as Abel, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Kane, Jenna Coleman as Joanna Constantin, Julie Richardson as Ethel Krebs, David Thewlis as John Dee, Boyd Holbrook in The Corinthian role, Stephen Fry as Gilbert, Patton Oswalt as the voice of Dreamcatcher Matthew, and as Dream siblings, Mason Alexander Park as Desire and Kirby Howell Baptist as Death. The first season of the series is now streaming on Netflix.
