The first clip from Netflix’s The Sandman sees Dream travel to Hell to meet with Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer.

The Sandman held a panel at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend leading up to the show’s debut on Netflix next month. The Sandman looks to be one of the most ambitious DC shows to date, with Neil Gaiman’s vision finally coming to life after years of development.

Dream Heads to Hell

A new trailer was released at The Sandman‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel, and now IGN has dropped a four-minute clip. The footage comes from the show’s fourth episode and features Tom Sturridge’s Dream visiting Hell to confront Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer to take back his Helmet of Dreams. You can check out the extended look at the upcoming series below.

Another clip from The Sandman featuring Death was also released by IGN, which you can watch below.

Here is the new synopsis for Netflix’s The Sandman:

There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep — a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he’s made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way.

The series stars Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Jenna Coleman, Joely Richardson, David Thewlis, Stephen Fry, Patton Oswalt, and Mark Hamill.

Wonder Woman co-writer Allan Heinberg serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer on Sandman. In addition to their duties as writers, Neil Gaiman and David S. Goyer are also on board as executive producers.

The Sandman will hit Netflix on August 5, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming series, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
