Neil Gaiman clarifies why Sandman was not on the DC schedule: http://neil-gaiman.tumblr.com/post/1...t-being-worked

It’s not a DC Comics film. It’s a Vertigo film. That’s a different slate of films, and a different announcement.

Makes sense since 100 Bullets and Fables movies are also in the works. I suppose they'll announce release plans for all of them at the same time.

So does Swamp Thing and JLD land in Vertigo or DC?

And didn't the rights to Y The Last Man go back to the creators? What other movies would go under the Vertigo label that you think we'll get?

100 Bullets and Fables have been confirmed as projects being worked on so those 2 for sure. JLD could go either way since Constantine, Swamp Thing and Zatanna all have publishing history under both banners (DC and Vertigo).

Oh, I didn't know about those. I haven't even read them, either. I still need to read Y The Last Man, as I haven't gotten around to that yet.

Very cool news, though.

Vertigo cinematic universe would be awesome.

I think JLD would fall into DC territory though.

Some kind of new info, some assumed JGL would direct others not, deadline is saying he is now though so who knows

“Been doing a lot of work with David Goyer and Jack Thorne,” says The Dark Knight Rises star, “working on the screenplay. We’ve been doing our meetings at the DC office, which is a frickin rad place to work. Also just had a great conversation last week with David and Mr. Gaiman. Neil has been extremely big hearted with me, and he’s the one I want to please most.”

I wonder if any of the people at DC refer to him as 'hothead'.

WITH CUMBERBATCH OUT, GAIMAN POINTS TO HIDDLESTON TO PLAY SANDMAN


Quote:
As development on Warner Bros.' "Sandman" feature film continues, creator Neil Gaiman spoke up on his thoughts as to who should bring Morpheus to life.

"There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine," Gaiman told RadioTImes.com. "I think the first time I saw Benedict [Cumberbatch] was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, 'wow, that's incredibly Morpheus.'"

As Gaiman points out, Cumberbatch has officially been announced as Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" star, but the writer isn't concerned about headlining "Sandman" with an actor right for the part. "Tom Hiddleston is still out there," he declared. "And the truth is, as far as I'm concerned, anybody who sounds English with great cheekbones can probably pull it off."

After being critical of Hollywood's previous attempts at bringing the seminal Vertigo comic to life, Gaiman is not only supportive but enthusiastically positive about the latest attempt at adapting his work to film. "with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in charge, his instincts are good and he loves the material. He wants it to be true to the material," he said. "[T]hey've written a script. I got a phone call about two, three weeks ago from Joe and David [S. Goyer] saying, 'Jack did a script, we read it, we want some things done to it. We want you to see it, but not this version. The next version will be in three weeks and then you'll be the first person to see it.' So I am now a week before seeing the script. It's going to come in just before Christmas. I'm nervous, I'm on tenterhooks."

"But do I have good feelings? Yeah I do."

That's cool. This should shut up those few stragglers griping about JGL's involvement.

I think my top choices for Sandman have to be:

Hiddleson
Cumberpatch (out)
Zachary Quinto

Gaiman cleared up his Hiddleston remarks. Apparently he was just kidding.

I think Lee Pace would also be good for the role.

Pace is becoming go to guy these days, which is good. I'm hoping they bring Ronan back in the MCU somehow with one of the gems.

Now that the crow is falling apart, Luke Evans could contend as well.
