The images aren’t the only previews of the upcoming series that have been released. Recently, the official Twitter account for Sand Man dropped several photos, including one showing Death (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) walking around with his brother, Morpheus (Tom Sturridge). The shot seems to be a recreation of the sequence from sand man #8, Death’s first appearance, in which the master of dreams accompanies his older sister as she ushers souls into the afterlife.

Lucifer Gwendoline Christie has been featured heavily in promotional materials for Sand Man; the first teaser clip for the series ends with Lord of Hell saying, “Hello, Dream. Are you all right?” Casting Christie drew the ire of certain parts of the internet, but sand man creator Neil Gaiman has been quick and adamant in his support for the choice. When a Twitter user claimed he was a hypocrite because Gaiman had previously stated that he didn’t like it when characters were changed in adaptations, the award-winning author responded by asking, “How exactly do characters change? Is it a penis? That’s okay. Lucifer in the comics doesn’t have one.” penis, and I can’t believe Gwendoline Christie has a penis either.”

The author has also called out many others online for their bad comments about Netflix shows. Notably, he says he gives “zero bastards about people who don’t understand/haven’t read sand man” in response to the racist rhetoric surrounding the Death of Howell-Baptiste and sexist comments about the casting of Mason Alexander Park, a non-binary actor, as Desire. Similarly, Gaiman responded to several individuals on social media who complained about the destruction of the show’s “wake up” sensibilities, explaining “sand man woke up in 1988, and it hasn’t broken yet.”


The iconic DC original Gaiman comic book series was published from January 1989 to March 1996 (as per cover date). The story follows Morpheus, also known as Dream, as he tries to reclaim his territory and power after being trapped on Earth for years. The comics and their various spin-offs have won several prominent prestigious awards, including several Eisner and Hugo Awards.

Sand Man will make his epic debut on Netflix on August 5.
