Back in January we found out that Watchmen, 300, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder was heading back to the zombie apocalypse with a movie titled Army of the Dead. Snyder is no stranger to the walking dead, having directed the Dawn of the Dead remake in 2004.
The first to join the cast of the movie—which will be a zombie heist thriller following a man who, after a zombie outbreak in Vegas, assembles a team to go into a dangerous quarantined area in hopes of scoring a big payday—was Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Endgame, and Spectre star Dave Bautista. And now four more have joined the cast with Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, and Huma Qureshi signing on to star.
We haven’t heard much from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Watchmen, and 300 director Zack Snyder since he had to depart as the director of Justice League in May of 2017.
Now Snyder is back with a new project, a zombie heist horror-thriller titled Army of the Dead, which is set up at Netflix. Snyder says it’s the first time he has free rein to do whatever he wants with a movie, and describes the project as “something fun and epic and crazy and bonkers in the best possible way.”
This isn’t as shocking as getting doused with a cold bucket of water, but Aquaman is getting a sequel. The film is already on track to earn $65 million in its opening weekend. Additionally, positive early reviews have shown that this is the movie to watch this holiday. So it comes as no surprise that a sequel is “in development.” More on the report below.
A Julie Andrews cameo in Mary Poppins Returns would make a lot of sense since the singer and actress was the star of the original film. However, Andrews confirmed that she would not appear in the follow-up starring Emily Blunt as to not take away her spotlight. So Andrews has settled for a different kind of role. A very unlikely one. According to a new report, Andrews will be lending her voice talents to James Wan‘s Aquaman. More on the report below.
Sure, Aquaman may have had a terrible introduction in Justice League, but the character’s standalone film promises to be the kind of epic that befits a king. And a king would not be king if he didn’t give to the people, if you are an Amazon Prime member that is. So Amazon Prime members will get to see Aquaman five days before its theatrical release. Additionally, there is a brand new trailer that will prove this will be something worth watching. More on the early release plus the trailer here below.
