Netflix's Full Sweet Tooth Trailer Teases An Epic, Thrilling DC Adventure
The adaptation of Jeff Lemire's DC comic book arrives on June 4.
The full trailer for Sweet Tooth is here. The Netflix adaptation of Jeff Lemire's acclaimed DC comic hits Netflix on June 4.
When April's first Sweet Tooth teaser focused more on action and atmosphere, the longer trailer sets up the show's plot. After a pandemic sweeps the planet, part-human, part-animal children known as "hybrids" are born. Inevitably, mankind fears them, and most are hunted and killed. The series focuses on a hybrid deer-boy named Gus, who sets out on a dangerous journey to find others like him, with the help of a man named Gus. It looks like an epic mix of post-apocalyptic thrills and emotional drama, and should stand apart from all the other comic books shows currently available. Check the trailer out below:
Sweet Tooth stars Christian Convery (Pup Academy) as Gus and Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones) as Jepperd, plus Stefania LaVie Owen (Messiah), Aliza Vellani (The Twilight Zone), and James Brolin (Traffic). It's produced by Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan Downey, and the showrunners are Jim Mickle (In the Shadow of the Moon, Hap and Leondard) and Beth Schwartz (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow).
The comic book Sweet Tooth was published by the DC Comics imprint Vertigo, and was written and illustrated by Lemire. It ran for 40 issues between 2009 and 2013. The TV adaptation was originally set to be made by Hulu, but moved to Netflix in 2020.
