The Sandman New Photo

Neil Gaiman shared new character photos from the upcoming season of Netflix’s The Sandman. The photos introduce Ernest Kingsley Junior and Deborah Oyelade as Morpheus and Nada respectively. Queen Nada and her people knew the entity of Dream by the name of Kai’ckul, and it is through that name and perception of Morpheus himself that changes his appearance. In the comics, Nada and Morpheus were deeply in love, but Morpheus was arrogant and egotistical, and feeling rejected, he banished her to Hell. The Sandman will premiere on Netflix on August 5.
