Thanks to the wonderful folks at Netflix''s "Geeked Week," we know that their upcoming adaptation of from creator, EP, producer, and showrunner Gwendoline Christie will be very active during next month''s virtual convention. Earlier this week, they drove the point home further with a preview of the event that included some new "Sandman" goodness, but I''m not sure what they will do. If Christie is adamantly optimistic, then it''s time to say that the opposite is
Here''s a look at Christie''s earlier today post, which included some additional photos from the streaming series, followed by a look back at the "Geeked Week 2022" trailer, which included some more features:
Gwendoline Christie''s post has been shared by the world''s leading editor.
Gaiman and Sturridge covered a variety of topics in their last week interview, including how they approached translating Morpheus''s literary-like speech to the small screen, what it was like for Sturridge to film naked early in the production & more:
"We were able to go to Netflix and say, "It''s Tom. We know it''s Tom." "After seeing all of these other auditions, Gaiman and The Creative Team raised no doubt about Tom Sturridge''s death.
Why the Casting Process Needed to Be Long: "It was entirely necessary because this is a character who is so much valued by me more than anyone." Then, he explained, that spending time with a human being to discover if they can live up to your dreams of ''The Sandman,'' according to Sturridge. "I think the name Morpheus, King of Dreams, kind of haunted me in my youth."
"It was certainly a baptism-by-fire to be introduced to those I was going to spend nine months naked, climbing into a glass box which, owing to the way it was designed, couldn''t be broken apart easily," the actor said with a laugh.
"I really cared about Morpheus'' physical appearance," says Sturridge. "I''ve all seen those photographs, we know his skeletal, muscular, and otherworldly physique. I am very pleased with how you can make my body look like A, B, C, and D in such a way that I can''t easily get into the soul of an Endless." "I felt a lot of joy when I started with something achievable," he adds.
"Morpheus'''' style of dialogue from Page to Screen is extremely specific," Gaiman says. It was probably my most obsessive about that. Someone would have written a fantastic script, and allan Heinberg would have rewritten a fantastic script, but there would always be a point at the end where I''d still be noodling on the Morpheus dialogue: "I''m sure the words were correct, and the rhythms are correct."
"I remember [Gaiman] said to me that everything he says must feel like it was rendered in stone." He has never experienced and experienced every thought, dream, and moment, and therefore he knows what you''re going to say. That was very helpful," said Sturridge.
Gaiman Gives Sturridge a Quick Stop: "I growled at him once and said, ''Stop being Batman.'' He was often attempting to get a bit whispery," according to Sturridge (though he stated that it was his "literally my first day," but he found the advice "extremely helpful."
The Sandman, a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and myth are encumbered, follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic and human mistakes he''s made during his long existence.
"I''m eternally grateful to all of Netflix, Warner Bros., DC, and all of the actors who collaborate on The Sandman for bringing the entire experience back to life." "I''m able to wait until all of the people out there see what we''ve been seeing as Dream, and the rest of them buy flesh," Gaiman said in a statement. "This is astonishing, and I''m so grateful to all of the actors and artists on the show for transforming the wildest of my dreams into
