Snyder’s first movie on Netflix was Army of the Dead – 78%, whose spin-off is very close to being released, The Army of Thieves – 75%. In the future, in addition to sequels and spin-offs for this zombie universe, the director wants to expand his work in science fiction with Rebel moon, inspired by The Seven Samurais – 100%, by Akira Kurosawa, as well as in the Star Wars universe. The original idea for the film was brought as a proposal to Lucasfilm, before Disney acquired the company, and could be lost in the mists of time, but Snyder wanted to resurrect it as an original story and had the support of Netflix.
Now, in an interview with The Post Credit Podcast, Snyder said that Rebel moon It will be like the introduction of Krypton in Man of Steel – 55%, but on steroids. This is good news, at least for everyone who enjoyed that lengthy introduction to Superman’s home planet, where we saw General Zod’s rebellion and how Jor-El sent his only son to Earth, before the destruction of your planet (via .):
The beginning of ‘Man of Steel’ on Krypton has pretty big sci-fi elements, and that’s what we’re doing on ‘Rebel Moon’, but with the biggest steroids I can give.

Zack Snyder Justice – 82%. This movie showed a brief look at what we would see in the sequels: in the future the villain Darkseid would invade Earth and Superman would succumb to the anti-life equation, so he would be controlled. Batman, along with a group of superheroes and allied villains, would try to go back in time to change the future.
