hypnotic Co-creator Neil Gaiman has shared his reaction to the newly released stills from the DC Comics fantasy series adapted from Netflix.
In response to a fan on Twitter, Gaiman confirmed that he was “very happy” with how the show has shaped. The exchange was followed by the inclusion of passages from hypnotic in a video montage to promote Netflix’s Geeks Week event in June 2022. Many of these snippets have not been shown before, and further underscore how committed the 11-episode first season of the fantasy series is to its source.
The Geek Week montage also gave fans the opportunity to hear star Tom Sturridge introduce several lines hypnoticThe protagonist, Morpheus. Gaiman previously revealed that he gave Sturridge feedback on how Morpheus performed, encouraging him to avoid emulating the distinctive husky tones of another iconic DC character. “I honed him once and said, ‘Stop being Batman.’” Gaiman said during an interview with Sturridge “He was trying to get a little whisper.” The English actor added that he found Gaiman’s instructions “very useful.”
Fans were also treated to a new glimpse at Sturridge’s Lord of Dreams ahead of the Geek Week footage, courtesy of HD. The image shows Morpheus in a black cloak made partly of leather, holding his other-worldly dossier tightly over his body. Netflix later released another picture of Dream via hypnoticThe official Twitter account, this time showing the ruler of The Dreaming in a black coat in what appears to be his throne room.
Two more photos have been shared alongside the dream snapshot: one for Lucifer and one for Matthew.

The image of Matthew the Raven is even more noteworthy as it gives fans their first real look at the live version of the winged Dream Envoy voiced by Patton Oswalt on the show.
One thing that both the Geek Week video and recent pre-release photos make clear is the sheer size hypnoticbudget.
