THE SANDMAN: Neil Gaiman Confirms Controversial "24 Hours" Issue Will Be Adapted For Episode 5 - <font color=red>SPOILERS</font>

Fans were wondering if the events of issue #6 of The Sandman would be adapted for the upcoming Netflix series, and Neil Gaiman has now confirmed that John Dee will enter that diner for "24 Hours."

It looks like Netflix really is committed to bringing fans a faithful adaptation of The Sandman, right down to the controversial events of issue #6.

In "24 Hours," John Dee, aka Doctor Destiny (who'll be played by David Thewlis), walks into an all-night diner to await his showdown with Morpheus, and decides to pass the time by forcing the people inside to play his twisted games by using the Dream Stone to control their minds.

We're not going to describe what happens in any detail, but suffice to say things quickly take a turn for the depraved.

Because Dee's little distraction isn't really vital to the overall story and could easily be compacted into a scene or two, we weren't sure Netflix would actually adapt the entire issue, but Neil Gaiman has now confirmed that it'll take place over the course of the fifth episode.

And just in case you think they might have toned anything down...

In all seriousness, there's no way they're going to depict all the horrendous shit that goes on in that diner, but even the mere suggestion should be enough to traumatize a whole new generation of fans.

The 11-episode first season of The Sandman is expected to adapt the first arc of the Vertigo comics series, "Preludes and Nocturnes," which finds Dream captured by a black magician and held prisoner for the better part of a century. When he finally escapes, he sets about recovering three very important items, encountering Lucifer, John Constantine, Doctor Destiny, Martian Manhunter and more on his travels.

Gaiman is developing the show along with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. No premiere date has been set.
