Army of the Dead 2 is able to go — in Zack Snyder’s thoughts in any case. The Army of the Dead director and co-writer has revealed that he has an “insane” thought for a sequel that’s “too crazy”, and that he would direct it “in a second” if Netflix stated sure. Army of the Dead launched final Friday, May 21 on the streaming service worldwide, and Netflix has but to say something formally on an Army of the Dead 2. But that is not all Snyder has deliberate. He has completed a script for one more “big, giant, crazy movie” and he is “trying to get Netflix to agree to do it”. One factor is evident: Snyder is completed with Warner Bros.
Spoilers forward for Army of the Dead.
“Shay [Hatten, Army of the Dead co-writer] and I know exactly what happens next. And it’s insane” Snyder instructed Polygon. It will naturally comply with Omari Hardwick’s character Vanderohe, who’s revealed to be bitten on the finish of the movie, as he flies on a personal jet to Mexico City. Snyder “absolutely” desires to sketch out that “what if?” second. He added: “I’d make it in a second. What we have planned is too crazy. Once we knew Vanderohe was bit, and he’s going to Mexico City, I was like, ‘You know what’s gonna happen?’ And then I just went on a tear. And by the time it ended, Shay was like, ‘OK.’”
Snyder additionally dropped additional teases for an Army of the Dead sequel, stating that the movie included a robotic zombie (“How about the robot zombie? Did you catch those?”), and the Alpha zombie Zeus escapes from a delivery container with an tackle for Iran. “Like, is he some sort of covert bioweapon?” Snyder rhetorically requested. He is alluding to the feud between the US and Iran that was additional fuelled throughout Donald Trump’s time as US President, who’s hinted at to be the President throughout the occasions of Army of the Dead.
A possible Army of the Dead 2 would possibly even develop on the throwaway time loop concept proposed by Vanderohe, who pointed to rotting corpses that regarded lots like them within the on line casino’s basement vault, suggesting that the billionaire Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada) had them caught doing the identical job time and again. Of that, Snyder stated: “I don’t know, what is the deal? Is Tanaka Devil or God, and we’re just pawns in some perverse play?”
Snyder has all the time been nice at constructing hype for his motion pictures, even for these that may by no means exist. In the wake of Justice League Snyder Cut, the director revealed his grand plan for a Justice League trilogy. But Warner Bros. has no intentions of giving Snyder management over any extra DC motion pictures, and therefore his Justice League sequel concepts will solely exist in textual content. That is also the case with Army of the Dead 2, although given Netflix is already constructing a franchise with Snyder — there is a prequel movie in Army of Thieves, and a prequel anime in Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas — a sequel is way likelier right here.
Or perhaps Netflix would possibly say sure first to Snyder’s different “big, giant, crazy movie”, whose script the Army of the Dead director revealed he had been engaged on for 5 years.
