Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead snuck up suddenly on Netflix the few days after its delivery. By the next Monday, the Justice League chief’s zombie heist epic was well en route to getting one of the real-time feature’s best 10 most-watched films ever. What’s the significance here? That there’s a decent possibility we’ll get a spin-off in due time.
A spin-off declaration will not come as a very remarkable shock to those fans who’ve been tracking, however. All things considered, Army of the Dead was constantly intended to be the initial salvo for another zombie realistic universe for the decoration. It includes two prequel projects effectively underway. An anime series called Lost Vegas and the film Army of Thieves, which follows ace safecracker Ludwig Dieter before he joined Scott Ward’s group.
Then, at that point, there’s Army of the Dead’s cliffhanger finishing, something a likely Army of the Dead 2 would have to address somehow or another. What’s more, there are a couple of different inquiries left unanswered, as well. For instance, what the heck was up with that robot zombie?!
Here is the entirety of the free plot strings a spin-off should restrict:
Are Aliens the Cause of the Zombie Virus?
It’s just at any point truly referenced in the initial scene of the film, as the soldiers transport Zeus to a mysterious military office. However, it bears conversation: is whatever Zeus has been contaminated with of outsider beginning? Is Zeus himself an outsider? We never truly become familiar with the beginning of the zombie infection. However, the way that one of the fighters specifies that Zeus came from Area 51 appears to be huge.
Could people versus zombies versus aliens be a definitive end round of Snyder’s Dead universe? It stays not yet clear, however, the chief is not really the main movie producer to subtly interface his zombie infection to space — a concise broadcast in George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead conjectures that radiation falling off of a Venus space test may have been liable for the film’s undead bad dream. Plan 9 from Outer Space includes aliens trespassers taking `the dead back to life to eat the people. Robert Kirkman’s unique pitch for The Walking Dead elaborates a major contort including aliens, as well. Is Snyder gesturing to the zombie works of art that have preceded? Is it truly aliens?
Where Did the Robot Zombies Come From?
Apologies, I implied people versus zombies versus aliens versus robot zombies. Alphas aren’t the just “undead” animals presented in Army of the Dead. There’s additionally a robot zombie that shows up in a single shot of the film which has gotten the subject of substantial speculation among the chief’s fans.
The robot’s appearance is a flicker and-you’ll-miss it second. As Scott and what survives from his crew of cheats battle right out of the club toward the finish of the film. They shoot a zombie in the face, uncovering what resembles its metallic skull and a mechanical eye. The body additionally appears to hamper its tumbles to the floor, with a blue flash that likewise looks like the blue-ish inner parts that spout out of the alphas when they’re killed.
So what’s happening here? Snyder has affirmed there are for sure robots covered as zombies in this film, yet will not say what for or how they arrived.
Snyder proposed a few prospects in a Q&A about the film (through Comic Book): “In the event that you give close consideration, there are various zombies that are obviously not zombies. You see ordinary zombies and afterward, you see some robot zombies. Is it true that they are screens that the public authority has put among the zombies to screen them? It is safe to say that they are innovations from the other world? What’s going on there?“
Sounds like he’s very saving this one for Army of the Dead 2 (or one of the prequels).
What’s Going to Happen to Mexico City?
This is the clearest plot point for an expected continuation. Toward the finish of Army of the Dead. We watched a tainted Vanderohe making his last plummet into Mexico City. He was unconsciously chomped while battling Zeus in the vault room, and except if he takes his own life. He’ll before long be changed into another alpha.
You can think about what will probably occur straightaway: Vanderohe turns once the plane terrains and starts chomping his way through the Mexican capital. That contains around 7 million a greater number of individuals than Las Vegas. That is a lot greater zombie armed force than the first, and a substantially more troublesome city to divider up than the Vegas strip. Better believe it, humankind is in a difficult situation if things turn out the manner in which we as a whole anticipate.
In any case, could Snyder have some other curve available for Vanderohe? As indicated by the chief. He has the story for Army of the Dead 2 all outlined, including what will occur in Mexico: “What we have arranged is excessively insane. When we realized Vanderohe was in touch, and he’s going to Mexico City, I resembled him. ‘You know what’s going to occur?’ And then I just went on a tear. Furthermore, when it finished, Shay [Hatten, co-writer] resembled, ‘alright.‘”
