by By: Hess Sahlollbey Over the past week, the upcoming slate of adaptations based on DC Comics properties has been turbulent, to say the least. For instance, Sandman, based on Neil Gaiman’s comic-book series lost Joseph Gordon-Levitt, one of the driving forces behind it, further curtailing the project. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Preacher, which is slated to debut this May with Seth Rogen as an executive producer and...
