Netflix Reveals “The Sandman” Live Action Cast; Dream, Lucifer, and More!Mary Anne ButlerNERDBOT

We are very happy to share the official cast with you for Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s “The Sandman!” Allan Heinberg (“Wonder Woman,” “Grey’s Anatomy“) and David S. Goyer (“The Dark Knight, Man of Steel“) co-write the script, and will serve as executive producers, and Heinberg is showrunning.

Gaiman offered a new quote about the news: “For the last thirty-three years, the Sandman characters have breathed and walked around and talked in my head. I’m unbelievably happy that now, finally, they get to step out of my head and into reality. I can’t wait until the people out there get to see what we’ve been seeing as Dream and the rest of them take flesh, and the flesh belongs to some of the finest actors out there. This is astonishing, and I’m so grateful to the actors and to all of The Sandman collaborators — Netflix, Warner Bros., DC, to Allan Heinberg and David Goyer, and the legions of crafters and geniuses on the show — for making the wildest of all my dreams into reality.”

And, we got an official synopsis for “The Sandman,” too:
