After DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson mentioned Sandman as a property high on her list to develop into a movie, several websites speculated that Neil Gaiman's Vertigo masterpiece would be a surprise movie announcement on Saturday. Gaiman cleverly put down such speculation by referencing Betteredge's Law, a journalistic principle which states that any headline ending in a question mark can be answered with a no.
Of course, I'm sure some sites will spin this into "Hey, look, Neil Gaiman mentioned our site (even if they were putting us down)!" or "Neil Gaiman, master of subterfuge, is simply trying to mislead intrepid journalists who are wildly shooting in the dark!" We, on the other hand, recognize shitty speculation as just that.
Don't expect a Sandman movie announcement at SDCC 2013. (Although, if it does, expect all evidence of this article to disappear).
