Although we are saw a few gossips upcoming Netflix adaptations Neila Gaimana The Sandman and heard all about the show is interesting, the streaming service was careful not to reveal its views on Endless, the family of anthropomorphic creatures at the heart of the story. That is, until today’s special event Tudum.
This live storytelling (the story has already been audio-recorded earlier) is based on a Gaiman comic that worked under DC now there is no longer a Vertigo print of the late 80s and early 90s with a revival here and there. Among the artists were Dave McKean, Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, Jill Thompson, Shawn McManus, Marc Hempel, Bryan Talbot and Michael Zulli. After months of letting fans wonder how the new show could compare to the original comic, Netflix finally shared a proper view of the series during a presentation hosted by executive producer Neil Gaiman and actors Tom Sturridge and Kirby Howell-Baptiste, who play siblings. Dream and Death, respectively. Look.
The cast for this one is pretty impressive and includes Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, non-binary actor Mason Alexander Park as Desire, another of Dream’s siblings, Donna Preston as Desire’s twin, Despair, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucien, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess . We also have Boyd Holbrook as Corinthian, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain, Asim Chaudhry as Abel and Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine. Plus Joely Richardson and Niamh Walsh as older and younger versions of Ethel Cripps, and David Thewlis as Ethel’s son, John Dee. Kyo Ra will play Rose Walker, Stephen Fry will play Gilbert, Rose’s protector, and Razane Jammal will play Lyta Hall, Rose’s closest friend. There’s also Sandra James Young as Unity Kincaid, a wealthy heiress and Rose’s benefactor, and none other than MODOK herself, Patton Oswalt as the voice of the Dream’s envoy, Matthew Raven.
