With the two-part sci-fi epic Rebel Moon, Zack Snyder has evidently got his hands full, but the project for the cinematic world created from Army of the Dead has been largely quiet for a while.
When it first premiered, the filmmaker's massive zombie action epic became one of Netflix's most-watched original films of all time, and then the prequel sequel Army of Thieves arrived not too long after, delivering a double-whammy of popular hits set in the same sandbox that couldn't be more different.
Snyder indicated that further localized offshoots might be on the way, while a direct sequel to Planet of the Dead was also discussed, and that the animated series Lost Vegas has been in development for years without a single frame of footage or even a promotional image.
Netflix made a surprise comeback to the post-apocalyptic world ahead of the Super Bowl, but some enthusiasts may be surprised that it's nothing more than a Will Ferrell automobile commercial.
Does Army of the Dead have enough niche appeal to the Super Bowl audience to make the crossover worthwhile? It's probably a moot point seeing as Netflix would be happy to have its name slapped all over the biggest televised sporting event of the year, but at least it's reminded everyone that the property is still valuable and in good hands.
