Netlfix may have found their Dream for their Sandman series

October 2nd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ooooooh… it looks like Netflix and Neil Gaiman may have made their decision when it comes to finding their Morpheus for the upcoming Sandman series.

Based on Gaiman’s iconic and totally brilliant comics book series, Sandman follows the lord of dreams, also known as Dream, Morpheus, Kai’ckul, and Oneiros. He is one of the endless and he’s a character who floats around the DC universe at will, living forever and witnessing history as it floats past, trying to stay out of events as much as humanly possible as he is ruler of the world of dreams, not our realm.

And now it looks like Mary Shelly and On the Road star Tom Sturridge is set to grab the much sought-after role.

This is all we know so far but we will keep you posted as and when we hear any more news on casting, directors etc.

Are you excited for the on-screen debut of Morpheus? Personally, I hope they can capture the otherworldly atmosphere that encapsulates Gaiman’s creation and, if they can, we’re truly in for something very, very special indeed.

Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
