The DC book comic by Neil Gaiman titled ‘The Sandman’ will have its first debut on Netflix this August.

Why Should You Watch ‘The Sandman’?

‘The Sandman’ is one of the DC films adapted by Netflix. According to a report published in What’s on Netflix, Netflix is the only brave streaming site willing to fund its adaptation. In fact, the streaming site said that this is so far the most expensive movie web series.

‘The Sandman’ follows the story of Morpheus or also known as Dream. He was captured and held captive for 105 years. Now, he returns to restore his kingdom but this will be a great challenge because it no longer recognizes him as their King.

In a published article in Variety, there have been many offers for Neil Gaiman to adapt his comic into film either on the small or big screen. Still, he did not accept any of these, so this is quite interesting about what made him give the green light to Netflix.
