As part of Saturday’s virtual DC FanDome event, Warner Bros. TV has released a first look photo of Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) in character as Lucifer, one of the universe’s most powerful angels.
Based on Neil Gaiman’s renowned comic book series of the same name, Netflix’s long-awaited Sandman adaptation stars Tom Sturridge (Sweetbitter) as the titular character Morpheus, aka Dream of the Endless.
The streamer describes the series as “a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman will follow Dream — as well as those who’ve been affected by him — as he goes about putting right the mistakes he’s made during his very long existence.
The cast also includes: Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as Roderick Burgess, Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) as The Corinthian, Patton Oswalt (A.P. Bio) as the voice of Matthew the Raven, Kirby Howell-Baptiste (The Good Place) as Death, Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) as Johanna Constantine, Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck) as Ethel Cripps and David Thewlis (the Harry Potter films) as John Dee.
Gaiman serves as a co-writer and an executive producer on the series.
