DC’s ‘The Sandman’ finished its production and is currently in its post-production stage. After sharing a short clip on YouTube, Netflix has also announced the release date. The series will most probably release in 2022.
Netflix is at the top of its game when it comes to producing series and films that appeal to a large chunk of the masses. Another Netflix original that is almost ready to drop on Netflix is ‘The Sandman’, a fantasy series based on the DC comic book character of the same name. The fantasy mostly caters to the DC fans who have their taste developed in DC Comics and films that venture a little bit into the darker territory. The series features the King of Dreams, named Morpheus, who is captured in an occult ritual and is finally freed a century later. Going by this, the series is going to be a blast for the fans of the Sandman comics, along with the general global audience. While the actual date of release for ‘The Sandman’ hasn’t been revealed, we at Dkoding have a pretty good idea about the time it will drop on Netflix.

The character Sandman is an immortal symbol of dreams in the DC comics. It must not be confused with the Spider-Man villain of the same name. DC’s Sandman is the embodiment of dreams in the DC universe. As per DC, he is described as a “vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who’s ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus’ realm—be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons”.
