The casting of these iconic characters will make a massive difference as to whether the show will succeed. The role of Dream especially could make or break the series, and not every actor may pull it off. But even though much of The Sandman series remains a mystery, long-time fans of the comic are sure to be excited that the show has finally begun production. And since Gaiman has unofficially promised a casting announcement sometime soon, anticipation for The Sandman will only increase from here.
According to a tweet from Neil Gaiman, The Sandman has already begun filming. The author confirmed that production began this past Thursday, despite the cast not being announced to the public. He also suggested that the show would announce its cast sometime soon but did not state precisely when this would be.
Oh, we started shooting on Thursday. Dr John Hathaway has brought a book from the museum in which he works, to Roderick Burgess. But you're right, it's going to be time to announce some casting soon. https://t.co/goXqhEZHgi
