Earlier this month DC and WB revealed a huge slate of upcoming DC films featuring Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash, Aquaman, and The Justice League, but after the reveal many began to wonder what the status of their Sandman film was and why it wasn’t on that list.
While many began to speculate that these titles and characters simply didn’t make the cust, it turns out the answer is much simpler. WB is treating DC and Vertigo as separate slates.
According to Sandman creator Neil Gaiman:
“[Sandman is] not a DC Comics film. It’s a Vertigo film. That’s a different slate of films, and a different announcement.”
While its comforting to know that the film is indeed still on, the fact that he stated it was a separate “slate” implied that Sandman isn’t alone in the proposed announcement. while it is all purely speculation at this point, but given that Gaiman himself made the reveal holds a lot of promise.
