We continue with the news of Comic-Con, this time, with the first look at Army of thieves, the prequel to Army of the dead of Zack Snyder to Netflix, which will be released “soon” on the popular streaming platform without determining its specific date, although before the end of 2021. And it does so with a first trailer that you can see heading this news, revealing a very different style to the zombie massacre that we saw not long ago from the hand of Snyder.
Directed by Matthias Schweighöfer himself
And it is that Army of Thieves tells us the story of Ludwig Dieter, that scary thief of safes we met in Army of the Dead and played by Matthias Schweighofer; and it is Matthias Schweighöfer himself who directs this prequel, with Zack Snyder only as a producer. The plot takes place just at the time of the worldwide zombie outbreak, when the character of the actress Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei in Game of Thrones) recruits the thief for a big heist.
Although the presence of zombies is already expected to be very reduced on the screen (perhaps only by way of winks in news or similar), Army of thieves hopes to give some answers to certain enigmas of Army of the Dead. Even so, everything indicates that it is more of a film of robberies and action than of the living dead, despite being set in the same universe.
The cast is completed with names like Guz Khan, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Jonathan Cohen, Noemie Nakai, Peter Simonischek and John Bubnia. Army of thieves this opens 2021 and Netflix, on a date yet to be confirmed. Recall that Snyder already works in Army of the Dead 2 and in an animated series from the same zombie universe, all for Netflix.
