Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is currently filming, giving fans a first look at the series. Now new footage from the set has revealed a first look at the star Tom Sturridge as Dream of The Endless.
In the footage, which can be seen below, Sturridge’s Dream is seen walking through an alley alone. He doesn’t appear to have any makeup or effects in place to alter his appearance, so it’s possible his character will appear normal when interacting with humans, or his look will be changed later in post-production. As fans of the comics know, Dream is often depicted as a pale figure with sunken in black eyes.

The Sandman series was given an 11 episode order from Warner Bros. and Netflix. Gaiman is set to executive produce with David S. Goyer and writer/showrunner Allan Heinberg. Production on the series was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which luckily gave the creative team time to perfect the scripts. Thankfully though, production on the highly anticipated series is finally underway.
