If you're a fan of superhero films (or comics for that matter), you're probably familiar with the basic details of the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. It's entitled Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2015) and appears to be every bit a prequel to an eventual Justice League film. Here are the basics: Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer will direct and write, respectively; Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), and Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry/Aquaman) will comprise the bulk of the cast from a superhero perspective; Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) will also be a part of the project, and you can find the full cast and crew listings at IMDb.

There is good reason to be getting very excited for the film adaptation of Sandman that is currently in development. Jack Thorne is writing a script under the supervision of David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and this is the closest that anybody has ever come to getting Neil Gaiman’s beloved 1989 graphic novel onto the screen. Many have tried, and many have failed – some scuppered by Gaiman himself, in his quest to prevent the production of versions of his work that he felt were below par. This time, however, it seems the creator himself is being kept at the centre of the endeavour – as he explained to the Radio Times.
“I’m just happy that no bad Sandman movie has ever been made. But I’m really hoping that a good one will be. They’re a good team. And with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in charge, his instincts are good and he loves the material. »

Neil Gaiman Wants Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleton to Play Sandman. Neil Gaiman has been busy with the film adaptation of his comic series The Sandman alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and David Goyer. With casting yet to be announced, the author has some suggestions. Speaking with RadioTimes, [...]

There are many things to like about Patton Oswalt. His stand-up is funny, biting and incisive, and he’s proven to be a more-than-capable dramatic actor in films ranging from Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult” and the underrated “Big Fan,” which you should see immediately if you haven’t already. One of Oswalt’s most endearing qualities is that he tells a damn good story. His recounting of Wesley Snipes smoking weed and communicating with “Blade: Trinity” director David Goyer exclusively through post-it notes is the stuff of legend by now, and his beautifully-written endorsement of Jody Hill’s redneck tragicomedy “The Foot Fist Way” made me want to see the film before a single episode of HBO’s great “Eastbound and Down” had hit the air. But the following tops them all. In an excerpt from his upcoming memoir “Silver Screen Fiend,” the comic/actor tells a bizarre, sometimes »

With rumours arriving that The Walking Dead spin-off may be a prequel, hot on the heels of the news that Syfy is pursuing a series about Superman's grandfather, titled Krypton, there are officially no more jokes. Anything you might say about making a comic book series set some ridiculous amount of time before the real story starts happening, can and will be seriously considered as a pitch by some network, somewhere.
A Newsroom-style series about The Daily Planet before Clark Kent started working there? A psychological procedural featuring Dr. Harleen Quinzel but no Joker? A jungle-set adventure series about Gorilla Grodd's granddad? We could keep going until the phone rings and someone makes us an offer for a pilot, but that would be an unnecessary amount of pre-amble before getting to the point, »
After years of wallowing in believed-unfilmable development hell, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman appears to be creeping closer to actually hitting screens in the hands of David S. Goyer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Fades’ Jack Thorne. But just who should play the iconic central figure, Morpheus? According to Gaiman, Tom Hiddleston could be a good shout.While the author – who is also a producer on the film – seriously considered Benedict “ubiquitous” Cumberbatch, the actor is a little busy conquering every genre role under the sun, including Marvel’s Doctor Strange. "It's a funny thing with Morpheus, says Gaiman. “Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes, this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine. I think the first time I saw Benedict was as Sherlock Holmes, »
As Warner Bros., David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt continue to chip away at development on the long-awaited Sandman movie, creator Neil Gaiman has shared his thoughts on who he’d like to play the lead character of Dream, a.k.a. Morpheus.
“It’s a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it’s that thing where you look around and think, ‘Yes this person would be a fantastic person’, and then time passes,” Gaiman tells The Radio Times. “There was a time Johnny Depp would’ve been a great Morpheus, but now he’s too old and it’s fine. I think the first time I saw Benedict Cumberbatch was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, ‘wow, that’s incredibly Morpheus’. And fans probably thought the same because they immediately started doing fan-art, meshing the two of them up. Then again, Tom Hiddleston is still out there! And the truth is, »

Update: Neil Gaiman has tweeted that it was a joke. Harrumph!
It's not true. It was a joke in an interview I'm afraid Rt @PickleAM: Please oh please let it be true that @twhiddleston will play Morpheus!

There's been talk of a big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" for years, but it seems that things are finally kicking into gear. David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are working on a script, with Jgl set to direct and star, but it seems that the prolific author has his own suggestions about who should play Morpheus.
Gaiman told RadioTimes.com, "It's a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes, this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine. »

Neil Gaiman's Sandman series of graphic novels is one of the last great culturally influential comic series yet to hit the big screen, but not through a lack of trying. Still in development, a Sandman movie seems to be edging closer with Gaiman, David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt all working on the adaptation, and Gaiman, at least, has picked out who he wants to play the central character Morpheus. "It's a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes, this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes," Gaiman told

Neil Gaiman's Sandman was first published by Vertigo back in 1989 and apparently he's spent the years since imagining who would be the right actor to play his lead character, Morpheus, in a film adaptation. Some names have come and gone, and some are no longer available, but he does now have one particular actor in mind for the version that is currently in development: Tom Hiddleston. Gaiman recently revealed his thoughts about the Thor star to Radio Times, speaking about the Sandman film that is currently in development at Warner Bros. with Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached to produce. But while Hiddleston was the name that he ultimately highlighted as a choice pick, it was only after noting another big star who could have been perfect. The famed author noted that he has had many thoughts on the subject over the years, and »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Goyer, Jack Thorne, and Neil Gaiman have been hard at work trying to get a script completed for a big screen adaptation of Sandman. Gordon-Levitt, who has been rumored in the past to be starring in the film, was also in negotiations to direct the film. Gaiman seems to have a different vision of who should be cast in the role of Morpheus, though.
In an interview with the Radio Times, the writer says that after seeing Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock he started to like him for the role. He acknowledges the fact that his casting is very unlikely to happen since Cumberbatch is playing Doctor Strange for Marvel. He then mentions that Tom Hiddleston could be a possibility. You can read his quote below, in which Gaiman reveals that he'll be reading the most up-to-date version of the script over Christmas.

There's presently no word as to who might take on the role of the lord of dreams himself Morpheus, and Gaiman himself reveals in a new interview with Radio Times that he admits he's not too fussed about whom they choose as long as it's a good actor:
"It's a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine.

Jack Thorne, David Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are currently hard at work on the script for a big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's acclaimed Sandman comic series. Levitt has also been rumored to be in line to direct and possibly even star in the film, but Gaiman seems to have other ideas about who could bring life to Morpheus. In an interview with the Radio Times, the writer admits that at one time he thought Johnny Depp would be a good fit, but after seeing Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock he began to like him for the role. Gaiman then acknowledges that's unlikely to happen since Cumberbatch will play Doctor Strange for Marvel, but states that "Tom Hiddleston is still out there". From his comments (which you can read in full below), it doesn't actually sound as if he's particularly fussy about who winds up playing the distinctively pale personification of »
Take another look @ set images from "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", during a protest demonstration rally filled with 'Anti-Superman' demonstrators, trashing 'Supes' in effigy, because of the death and destruction caused by the fight between 'Superman' and 'Zod' in "Man Of Steel":

It’s no secret that Man of Steel was divisive with both critics and audiences alike. The film managed to re-introduce Superman to a new generation of moviegoers, but came complete with a few controversial choices from director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer. The online debates between fans are still raging, and it will likely remain that way until the follow-up, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters in 2016.
We’ve heard several times now that Batman V Superman will include some of the controversies from MoS in its actual narrative – in the form of anti-Superman protests, for example – and a new report now confirms that Superman is still facing an uphill battle when it comes to global acceptance.
Badass Digest is reporting on what Superman’s situation looks like in Batman V Superman, which will primarily take place two years after Man of Steel. The details »

The announcement earlier this week that David Goyer is developing a show for Syfy based on the home planet of DC Entertainment’s Superman raised an unexpected question from some comic book fans: which Krypton will show up in Krypton? Perhaps unsurprisingly given the longevity of Superman’s career, even if you ignore the different takes offered in movies and television shows, there have been multiple versions of Krypton throughout the years. In the very first appearance of Superman in 1938’s Action Comics No. 1, it was only glimpsed in one panel and unnamed, described as “a distant planet… destroyed by old

Following the success of the Fox 'Batman' prequel TV series "Gotham", Warner Horizon Television and Universal's Syfy network will co-produce the one-hour 'Superman' prequel "Krypton" "...revealing a chapter of the 'DC Comics' universe that has rarely been told...":
"...years before the 'Superman' legend we know, the 'House of El' was shamed and ostracized.
"This series follows the grandfather of 'The Man of Steel', as he brings hope and equality to 'Krypton'...
"...turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest superhero ever known..."

I want to say I’m sorry. I am one of the many who loved the beginning of Man of Steel enough to say I’d watch a whole movie set on Krypton. Those scenes felt like a new Star Wars episode when they arrived last summer. It was a thrill. But then so did parts of Thor: The Dark World and then Guardians of the Galaxy,and now we’re seeing footage from an actual new Star Wars episode coming soon, and the Man of Steel space opera opening just isn’t as special anymore. I no longer need a feature-length Kryptonian prequel. And I certainly don’t want a television series-length Kryptonian prequel. But reportedly there’s one of the latter in development at SyFy from Man of Steel screenwriter David Goyer. Am I partly to blame for maybe somewhere writing or tweeting about wanting something like this? If »
