‘American Gods’ Creator Neil Gaiman Talks Season 2 Finale, His Favorite Episode & Teases Season 4 Plans

‘American Gods’ Creator Neil Gaiman Talks Season 2 Finale, His Favorite Episode & Teases Season 4 Plans
Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of tonight’s American Gods Season 2 finale.

“In American Gods, as you know, one of the things that’s always been important to me is the idea that it’s set in the real world,” professes Neil Gaiman of both his acclaimed 2001 novel and the Starz series upon which it is based. “It’s not set in the Marvel Universe and it’s not set in the DC Universe. It’s not set in a heightened reality place, it’s actually set in our world, where weird sh*t happens.”

Certainly there was an abundance of weirdness in tonight’s American Gods Season 2 finale “Moon Shadow.”

Following the death of the drunken and pugilistic supposed leprechaun Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) in the penultimate episode, the Old Gods are now turning against their shifty leader Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). As New Gods kingpin Mr. World

Pablo Schreiber Drops Major Clue About Mad Sweeney’s Real Identity (Video)

Fans of the Starz hit drama “American Gods,” have come to know the character of Mad Sweeney as an abnormally tall, out-on-his-luck leprechaun with a mean right hook.

Throughout the show’s two seasons, Sweeney, played by Pablo Schreiber, has dropped hints that his past may stretch further than a rainbow to a pot of gold. On Sunday, viewers will finally find out who Sweeney really is.

“He’s never been a leprechaun,” Schreiber told TheWrap. “We meet the character of Mad Sweeney in Season 1, episode 1, when he describes himself as a leprechaun. By the last time we see him in Season 2… we sort of finally realize what that meant, and that there was a certain irony to him calling himself a leprechaun.”

Fans of the Dceu have been wondering who will be chosen to become the new Green Lantern for a while, and one talented individual has now decided to continue the campaign to get Tom Cruise to wear the ring with some solid new fan art imagining the performer as one epic Hal Jordan.

American Gods star Ricky Whittle has “had conversations” about Green Lantern role

Green Lantern Corps is one of those DC projects like The Flash and Cyborg that were initially announced as part of the DC Extended Universe slate, but have since found themselves languishing in development hell in the years following.

Originally slated for release in July 2020 – a date which now looks impossible to meet – the last update came back in June when it was announced that former DC Cco Geoff Johns had boarded the project as screenwriter and producer.

And, while it’s current status is unknown, it seems that DC Films may have been putting the casting feelers out recently as American Gods star Ricky Whittle has revealed to Syfy Wire that he’s “had conversations” about the project.
