While The Sandman is streaming now on Netflix, viewers are comparing the original comic narration and the live-action adaptation. They are also talking about the characters and the changes that the show creators have made. However, it’s not just about the viewers. Other streaming giants are also keeping a watch on the show. And one of the major streaming giants, HBO Max, is competing against Netflix over a possible spinoff series. Let’s find out how.

Constantine vs The Sandman: Who will win?

Since the spinoff starring Jenna Coleman as Joanna Constantine is given green-lit by Neil Gaiman, HBO Max, Netflix’s rival, is also making a move. This is a battle between the Netflix Original, The Sandman, and HBO Max’s Constantine. The fantasy thriller adaptation of the comic The Sandman is receiving very positive reviews. The show narrates the story of the lord of Dreaming, Lord Morpheous, his kidnap, and how he fights the odds to replace the order.

Meanwhile, Constantine has Keanu Reeves as a demon hunter who has literally been to hell and came back. The protagonist of the movie, John Constantine, is aware that he’d have to redeem himself to get to the ultimate destination: heaven. Even though the stories are fascinating, The Sandman came out early this month, while the movie was released in 2005.

So, coming to why these two streaming giants are competing against each other. It’s over HBO Max’s Constantine reboot , while Neil Gaiman, as said earlier, is positive about the spinoff for Jenna Coleman as Hellblazer.

As soon as the fans saw Joanna on the Netflix Original, they were demanding a spinoff for her. While agreeing to the fans’ demands, it seems Netflix is trying harder and giving everything in to win this battle and keep the subscribers. As far as the movie Constantine is concerned, currently, the reboot is in process.
