New York Comic-Con is back this year at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC with a more low-key vibe, reminiscent of NYCC’s of yore. Less crowded, less mega panels and stars, but extra joy. You can just feel the positivity as everyone seems just so happy to be back. On that note, I meandered outside and was drawn to The Sandman: Act II Audible Experience.
Check out the pics from that NYCC experience here below.
Back in December of 2013 it was reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was set to produce and possibly even star in and direct a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s comic book series The Sandman for Warner Brothers. The project was then moved from Warner Brothers to their smaller sister studio New Line Cinema in June of last year.
This apparently wasn’t the best move if you were excited about Gordon-Levitt’s involvement in the movie, as it’s now being reported that he has walked away from the adaptation after a disagreement with New Line. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
You can see what Gordon-Levitt had to say about the decision below, as well as Gaiman’s response.
The Hollywood Reporter ran an article yesterday about how Warner Bros. is currently in the process of moving some of their less kid-friendly DC Comics movie projects, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Sandman adaptation, over to their New Line Cinema division.
Buried at the very end was the most distressing news the article contained: Guillermo del Toro is no longer directing Justice League Dark, by far the one future DC film venture I wanted to see made more than anything.
Looks like the Devil has moved to the City of Angels.
FOX has just released the first trailer for Lucifer, their new television series premiering in 2016. The show, which is based on the character created by Neil Gaiman in his Sandman comic book series, features Lucifer, the Devil himself, who’s become bored with lording over Hell, so he heads to Earth to Los Angeles to have some fun.
Watch the first 3-minute trailer here below, along with an inside look at the new FOX series.
