Tell me this isn't a joke! Kripke is awesome, and I think he'll do a fantastic job.
Awesome! I hope this turns out good.
It will be amazing if Kripke runs this series.
But for anyone else, it could turn into a Twilight/Vampire Diaries-eque massacre.
If Gaiman is involved and, God willing, it's not on The CW, this could be ****ing great.
it is WB so it is either CW or HBO
CW did say they are looking for a DC property to replace Smallville...
V is on ABC and Fringe is on FOX.
But even so, HBO sounds like the best bet.
Being on the CW doesn't mean it'll be god-awful though. Supernatural is still amazing; you'll never see SPN promos with Katy Perry songs, lol.
Especially if Kripke is involved, it'll make more sense for it to be on CW.
HBO did turn down preacher tho so who knows
Yeah, watching Supernatural and you totally get that Neil Gaiman/Vertigo vibe from it. Kripke is a pretty great choice for this, plus Supernatural gets away with a lot of crazy **** for something on network TV.
It would be awesome if HBO did a Vertigo trifecta of Sandman, Hellblazer and Preacher.
Y the Last Man, too!!!!
I never read the comic, but now seems like a good time to check it out.
Kripke being involved sounds like a good sign.
imo Y is better suited for the big screen it has a big scope that a tv budget cant afford
I dont know. They're doing The Walking Dead on AMC and that looks pretty damn great... I dont see how HBO could fail to do Y the Last Man.
I think HBO is way too overrated, imo.
AMC and Showtime is where it's at in regards to television on cable.
But, a 'Sandman' series should definitely be in CW, imo. Dawn O. said they are looking for another show once Smallville is over, and Sandman would be a perfect show to be aired right before Supernatural. That would be a superb combination.
It could be called "Kripke Night"
I dont care how well they've done with Supernatural, I dont trust The CW with Sandman. ****, I dont even trust the CW with Blue Beetle.
Why would you not trust the CW with Sandman?
If Eric Kripke was the showrunner, you really think he would become CW's *****boy? Lol, because I don't.
And Blue Beetle, I feel the same way, but then I also feel that there isn't a good showrunner out there that would stay on the series long enough. It's not everyday you see showrunners stick with their series until the end, and that's what BB needs, someone who will stick around to the end and not bail on the series, ala AlMiles.
Bout time that cane swinging drunk got his own show...wait...wrong Sandman.
Smallville being the missed opportunity it has become really falls more on the feet of the original show runners than the network. To me it seemed that they were embarrassed by anything comic booky. Smallville didn't start being interesting again until they left, I really doubt that there would have been a JSA episode with costumes had Gough and Millar stayed on.
They just need someone that gets the material, and Kripke seems like he would. It would also help if they brought Neil Gaiman on board in some capacity, I'm sure that would alleviate some fears.
walking dead is not really big in scope like Y is there is a reason why movies like 28 days later was only 8 million
Supernatural was already a Vertigo/Hellblazer inspired show so I think Eric knows how to do this.
EDIT: Castiel was inspired by constantine
I honestly can't imagine what an adaptation of Sandman could possibly look like unless it was animated. The entire comic series is hinged on the ink and color. Without it, it's not Sandman.
So, we are going to end up with a heavily distilled show with semi-campy props and characters and that's it? Anyone remember Neverwhere? I'm not saying they (HBO) don't have more money, but money wasn't the problem with Neverwhere. It's just really hard to adapt Gaiman's more complex work to the medium of TV.
Well in order to adapt there need to be changes so I say buckle up and expect changes.
I love the adaptation, especially since all the other angels wore suits(except for Lucifer, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Anna).
