The Sandman TV Show is Closer Than Ever

Another Comic Con trailer we got this past weekend was a big, beefy trailer for the Sandman TV show coming to Netflix. I read all of Sandman back in the day and it was as great a story as everybody says. The TV show looks like a damn fine adaptation.

There seems to be a real focus on The Corinthian being the big bad of the show. Was he that big of a deal in the comics? I know he’s got that freaky look, but I don’t remember him being the major villain of the series. The Sandman comic wasn’t about that. So hopefully we get more of the cool, dreamy stuff instead of the straight villain fight stuff. Still looks great!

The Sandman comes to Netflix on Aug. 5.

Sweet, Sweet Sandman Trailer

The Sandman TV show is coming this summer! Fingers are crossed all the possible ways that this is going to be good. I loved all the comics. I love Neil Gaiman. And I’ve been loving most live action comic book streaming adaptations that we’ve been getting. So my hopes are up!

It looks fantastic. Very spooky. Very accurate. Also very existential. Will it get too weird for me? Maybe! But I’d like to think the showrunners will keep that in mind and make the show very approachable. Also, in case it needs to be said, I’m perfectly fine with Jenna Coleman being a genderbent John Constantine. Why the hell would I have a problem with that?

6 Thoughts on Spider-Man: No Way Home

Whoo baby, what a movie! I’ll admit to being mostly lukewarm about Marvel’s superhero movies this year, despite liking all of them. But now we have Spider-Man: No Way Home and I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is such a powerhouse of a production company! I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is so damn smart when it comes to utilizing their properties and bringing the very best movies to bear on the big screen. Spider-Man: No Way Home is a superhero movie marvel.

Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

I cannot heap enough praise on this film. I have been watching Spider-Man movies all of my adult life. The first Tobey Maguire Spidey movie came out after my freshman year of college, and I haven’t missed a Spider-Man movie in the theaters since. And I’ve enjoyed them all. I even liked the Amazing Spider-Man movies. And I especially loved Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With No Way Home, these filmmakers have done the seemingly impossible. They have taken all of our nostalgia, all of our expectations, all of our hopes and dreams, and have put together a truly spectacular movie, and a truly amazing Spider-Man movie on top of that.

Join me after the jump for my full review and all my thoughts on Spider-Man: No Way Home. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire movie and some other Marvel stuff. And please feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments below!

Sandman and The Witcher Get New Trailers

Netflix held some kind of event on Saturday where they showed off a bunch of new trailers for their upcoming and returning shows. Sounds neat! I’m as much a fan of Netflix shows as the next person. And I wanted to share the best two, in my opinion. Or the most exciting two.

First up is the first look at the Sandman adaptation. Neil Gaiman’s magnum opus has never before been adapted. And it looks pretty cool so far.

Next up is the second season of The Witcher.

I’m a huge fan of the Witcher games and never read the books, so the show is a bit early in Geralt’s timeline for me. But the first season was fun and everybody seemed to like it, so this second season appears to have a better budget maybe? Here’s hoping this Witcher show takes off and we get a whole series worth of content!

Sandman is coming sometime next year, and The Witcher returns on Dec. 17.
