Now that the relationship between Warner Bros and Zack Snyder is not going so well, Zack Snyder must definitely advance his Universe of Army of the Dead. He is serving as the executive producer of Warner Bros. DC’s upcoming film The Suicide Squad and ‘The Flash’. Recently, a statement came in, according to which Zack Snyder wants to make an Elektra movie with Marvel Studio! . But this seems difficult at the moment, maybe we will see him directing films for Marvel Studios in the future.
Now Snyder does not have any other project, he should continue his film series of Army of the Dead. Although the Army of Thieves prequel to Army of the Dead is expected to be released on Netflix by the end of this year or early 2022.

Army of the Dead is also special to Zack Snyder because this version of zombie has been introduced in a completely different way. In the upcoming films, we will get to see even more about zombies. Because the way the Army of the Dead has ended, it raises many questions in our mind on which a good and hopeful sequel can be made. Like how did Zeus become the first zombie? Which Vanderohe will become zombie? And how did the Robot become a zombie? Does the film have any connection to the Aliens, who were seen flying 2 UFOs from Area 51 at the start of the film? What happened to Ludwig Dieter in the film?
We have not yet come to know about this. Don’t you even know that all the zombies died in nuke attack? How do dead zombies come alive in the rain? It was also not shown in the film. These are all the questions that may be hurting the viewers’ minds? How to answer these questions and how they are threaded into the story? Zack Snyder knows well. These are all facts on which a great film can be made. If the story is presented properly?
Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead is special for him in every way, which can give new dimensions to his career. Although the film Army of the Dead was announced in 2007. Work on the film remained stuck for years, but in 2019 Netflix takes over the rights to the film.
