Is Benedict Cumberbatch going to play Morpheus in the Sandman movie?

They are still in the script stages, so casting for The Sandman won’t happen until next year or even the year after - depending which release date the movie gets.

I personally think that Joe wouldn’t have gone through the trouble of getting this movie off the ground, if he wasn’t involved in an additional capacity other than producer. (And his involvement is pretty much the reason WB is giving the adaption another go). He will either direct the movie or play a part or both. Whether it’s the titular character remains to be seen. I like Cumberbatch and he definitely fits the role look-wise. But I’m also absolutely convinced Joe can pull Morpheus off.

If they succeed in adapting the sprawling source material in an effective script, this movie has the potential to bring a very different flavor to the superhero genre (or graphic novel adaption). I’m very excited for it.




Let’s check in on the decadent, completely inedible, yet perfectly wearable shoes from The Shoe Bakery (previously featured here). The Orlando, Florida-based company is run by Chris Campbell, who loves both shoes and sweets so much that he decided to combine them in the form of outrageously tantalizing ice cream, cake and donut-themed footwear.

If you’ve got a specific dessert and shoe combination in mind, Campbell happily accepts custom orders. Each mouthwatering pair of Shoe Bakery shoes takes about 3-6 weeks to design, create and ship. Prices range from $200 to $400 US, which should provide you with all the more incentive to refrain from trying to eat them.
