Warning: SPOILERS for The Sandman Episode 3 — «Dream A Little Dream Of Me» and Episode 6 — «The Sound Of Her Wings» Jenna Coleman cleverly plays TWO versions of Johanna Constantine in The Sandman, and here's how the two Joannas connect to each other and to the absent John Constantine.
In Netflix's The Sandman, the Constantine surname is also restored to its proper pronunciation.
