I mean, I’ve literally been waiting for this for like 30 years…


For some reason the part that jumped out at me in the first trailer was that Dream’s cell had crisply-uniformed guards with guns…? It seemed like a stark contrast to the comics, where it was a relic of a dead cultist’s glory days. But then, if Gaiman is that enthusiastic about all of it, I’m sure it was all done for good reason.

I expect someone will interview Joseph Gordon-Levitt eventually? He was heavily involved in an adaptation for the longest time, though not this one.

Is it just me, or does the actor they casted for Dream look a little bit like a young Neil?

I always assumed he based the character’s appearance on his own or perhaps an idealized version. He’s often had a mop of dark hair and wore a lot of black and black leather jackets/coats. I imagine Dream is what Gaiman’s avatar in the Matrix would look like.

If you got pics, you should tweet them at Neil or tumblr them at him.
