Morpheus sports his comic-accurate helmet in new ‘The Sandman’ image

Comic book fans have been waiting over 30 years for The Sandman to be adapted for the screen, and creator Neil Gaiman has been waiting for even more, but his patience is about to be rewarded with the next Netflix TV series based on the seminal DC/Vertigo title. Featuring Gaiman as the show’s co-EP, The Sandman promises to be a very faithful recreation of the writer’s mythical and metaphysical comics.

Sure enough, this latest image from the show shows the titular Sandman, aka Morpheus or Dream of the Endless, sporting his comic-accurate helmet. Star Tom Sturridge looks every inch the Dream Lord in his leather robes and creepy bone mask. The image, which was first shared by Entertainment Weekly, comes from the fourth episode of the series’ upcoming 11-part first season.

Based on the first two volumes of the 10-volume comic book series, Preludes and Nocturnes Y the doll house, The Sandman It will begin with Morpheus finally escaping his bonds after being imprisoned on Earth by a dark wizard for the past century. Once he gains his freedom, Morpheus must search for his lost artifacts, including his helmet and the Dreamstone, before reclaiming his realm, Dreaming.

Sturridge revealed to EW that he got a lot of advice from Gaiman to bring the character to life. Hilariously, the British actor admitted that his initial take on the role of him was based too much on another DC hero, prompting Gaiman to yell at him to “‘stop being Batman’.” And, no, if you’re wondering, don’t. expect the Dark Knight or the rest of the Justice League to appear on the show.

Instead The Sandman will be populated by its own sprawling A-list cast playing gods, demons, nightmares, and more. Sturridge joins the likes of Gwendoline Christie (Lucifer), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Death), Boyd Holbrook (The Corinthian), Jenna Coleman (Johanna Constantine), and Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the Raven.

Netflix has yet to reveal a release date, but The Sandman will spray its magic on the stream sometime this year.
