The Golden Age Sandman Is Coming To The Arrowverse

- Advertisement -

As the fall TV season is almost upon us news on all of our favorite upcoming shows has begun to trickle out. Marc Guggenheim, executive producer on the CW’s Arrowverse (Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl), has always been a fan of teasing fans and he recently did again with the below Tweet.

That sure as hell looks like the mask worn by Wesley Dodds aka The Golden Age Sandman! Not to be confused with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, Dodds was a more traditional pulp hero (ala The Shadow) who fought crime in a gas mask and used a sleeping gas shooting gun, his knowledge of chemistry and keen detective skills to battle gangsters and supervillains alike. He was also a member of the Justice Society Of America (who have already been featured in the Arrowverse). The character did have his own DC/Vertigo title, Sandman Mystery Theater, in the 90s.  The 70-issue mature reader’s book, written by Matt Wagner and Steven T. Seagle, with art by Guy Davis, John Watkiss and more was told in a stylized film noir fashion and set in the 1930s.

What do you guys think of this exciting reveal? Is Dodds a good choice for the show(s)? And what other classic DC characters would you like to see join the Arrowverse? Comment and discuss below!
