Well going to Netflix is a good sign - Think Daredevil and Punisher.

If it was on the DC Streaming service it would be cancelled before pilot is out.

The streaming service has put out some quality shows. The 3rd season of Young Justice and of course Doom Patrol, which is better in quality than any tv show Marvel has produced.

At this stage I'm not sure the streaming service has much original content on it besides the shows I mentioned plus Titans.

This could be really good if done right.

....But it could also be painfully bad if they don't do it justice.

Was a joke (sort of) after what happened to Swamp Thing. Point is its not a secure platform.

Also I couldnt get through Young Justice S3. Was way too slow Imo.

And I really enjoyed the first 2 seasons.

Holy shit, that's fantastic news! Hopefully they don't mess it up

Galan007
In a recent interview with Gaiman, he assured fans that this adaptation would remain faithful in spirit to the source material, and that it would also follow the comics' story properly.

...So that's good.

Yeah but American Gods became horribly bad.

Galan007
Never watched that one.

I tried Lucifier, but it became stale to me after 7-8 eps.

I can see Gwendoline Christie as an androgynous Satan, if they go that path.

Only if it cost them 90 mil to make a season (ah la swamp thing)

We're closing in on two years since this announcement. Wtf are they doing with this show?

I'm looking forward to seeing how they handle all the DC characters too. That has to be a minefield to navigate. Who will they use for Constantine or Superman? IMO I think I'd rather this show just use original casting for them all and be an alternate universe instead of using movie/show versions of characters (as fantastic as Matt Ryans Constantine is; there's also the JJ Abrams HBO show version that's in development which makes this even more complicated).

I'm fine with gender swapping. I just want good actors and even better writing.

I'm genuinely anxious to see who is cast as Death.
