Zack Snyder says the sequel to ‘Army of The Dead’ will feature a wild new addition.
Remember May? Remember May? You couldn’t go online without finding something about Netflix the big movie of the moment, the Zack Snyder-directed Army of the Dead. We couldn’t move to find stories about the film on that very website. Now we’re back at it cos Gimme-As-Snyderverse has gone and opened his laughing ear about its sequel.
It was a zombie-heist movie starring Dave Bautista, but it was okay. It was fun for about 90 minutes. It was a shame that it ran for over two hours, but that’s okay. The prequel to the movie, Army of Thieves is available on Netflix now. It was released at the end of October but you can forgive yourself for not having noticed it. Watch the trailer. A animated series based Army of the Dead is currently in development. Planet of the Dead is also in the works.
Director Snyder has been talking about Planet of the Dead to Variety via GamesRadar+. He was specifically talking about what makes this movie different from its Vegas-set predecessor. Namely: portals.
Portals will play an important role in the follow-up dimension-hopping sequel. Snyder says that the all-action, horror-tinted movie will feature “time loops, portals and doorways to other realms”. Snyder remains vague and says that “Things are of this nature are very much at play.”
Army of the Dead was a simple story, but it did have its moments of woe. These are the robot zombies or the hint of time loop that Planet of the Dead will be riffing and calling back to. Snyder asked the question rhetorically back in June: “Are they technology of the other world?” When you talk about portals or other realms, it becomes clear that two plus two equals five hundred thousands brain-eating nasties, ready to chew through bone and body armor. Maybe not. Snyder says that animated series will answer the why of zombies’ existence.
Snyder spoke previously to GamesRadar+ and said: “I can’t wait to make the sequel Army of the Dead so that we can witness how all of these things manifest.” “Those things” are what the eagle-eyed viewers picked out on repeated viewings. The movie soared to 72,000,000 streams in a matter of weeks. According to the internet, there appears to be aliens within the movie. I suggest you rewatch it if you don’t mind.
