Hey remember that film based on The Sandman? The one being being produced by David S. Goyer and Joseph-Gordon Levitt? If you answered no, I wouldn’t blame you.
There’s so much superhero and comic news going on in the film world these days, like Civil War and Dawn of Justice racket, the hardly publicized Sandman film is not on the minds of many.
But it is happening, and I’m so excited for it! But what can we expect from the on-screen adventures of Morpheus? Well according to JGL, nothing we’ve ever seen before!
Amidst the general superhero movie cliches, like long action scenes and stunning fight sequences, The Sandman is going to be a unique experience. When speaking with MTV News, Joseph Gordon-Levitt had this to say about what to expect from his vision of the film:
“Big spectacular action movies are generally about crime fighters fighting crime and blowing sh-t up. This has nothing to do with that. And it was actually one of the things that Neil Gaiman said to me, he said ‘Don’t have any punching.”
That may seem like a super odd thing to request, but it’s actually not that weird when you consider that in the comic, the source material, Morpheus never punches anybody. That’s just not the type of comic character that he is.
It’s good to know that JGL and the crew aren’t relying on those same old superhero cliches to make this movie, and that they’re sticking faithfully close to the source material.
Here’s hoping that when The Sandman (or whatever they decide to call it) comes out, whenever that is, that it will truly be the movie fans have been waiting for!
