The Sandman Character Posters Better Look at Boyd Holbrook’s Corinthian
In addition to revealing the full trailer and release date of The sand man adaptation of the live-action series, Netflix revealed new character posters on Geeked Week. New Character Posters Feature Tom Sturridgethis is the dream, Jenna Colemanis Johanna Constantine, and Boyd Holbrookis Corinthian.
The first two new character posters focus on the upcoming series’ protagonist, Morpheus, known to many as Dream, one of the seven endless beings who shape reality as we know it. With the phrase “Master of Dreams”, the first poster features Sturridge holding the iconic Dream’s Helm, a mask the powerful being uses as one of his sigils. The second poster asks fans to “dream the world again” as Morpheus stands outside his castle in the Nightmare Realm, with Matthew the Raven perched on his shoulder.
A third character poster focuses on Johanna Constantine, a “even demons don’t trust” woman. In the comics, Johanna is a longtime distant relative of John Constantine, who lived through the French Revolution. Johanna rescues Dream when the Endless is in trouble, earning her favor throughout her life. Finally, the final character poster is dedicated to the Corinthian, with Holbrook menacingly holding a knife in front of his sunglasses. The Corinthian is one of the nightmares that escaped our reality once Dream was imprisoned. The nightmare uses shades to hide the fact that it has mouths with sharp teeth in its eye sockets, a gruesome image it uses to terrorize its victims.
The first season of The sand man will cover the story of The Sandman, Volume 1: Preludes and Nocturnes, a collection of comic book issues that follows Dream’s capture by a cult in the early 1900s and its subsequent release a century later. Additionally, the show will also feature other Endless, with Kirby Howell-Baptiste play to death, Mason Alexander Park with Desire, and Donna Preston playing the role of Despair. Unfortunately, there is no information on the remaining siblings of Dream, Destiny, Delirium, and Destruction.
The Sandman the cast also includes Vivienne Acheampong, Gwendoline Christie, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, David Thewlis, Jenna Coleman, Niamh Walsh, Joely Richardson, Kyo Ra, Stephen Fry, Razane Jammal, Sandra James Youngand Patton Oswalt.
