The most awaited zombie film Army of the Dead finally hit Netflix a few weeks back. Since its arrival on the streaming giant, it is topping the charts. Everyone who sees this movie wants to watch it again. Because of the awesomeness of this film, fans are already curious about Army of the Dead 2.
However, it’s still too early to say anything regarding this at this time. As the movie just came on the streaming giant a few weeks ago. After running successfully in theatres, this incredibly directed movie by Zack Snyder became an absolute hit on Netflix as well.
Like the rest of his movies, including all-time hits such as Man of Steel, 300, Sucker Punch & many more, Snyder has put himself again on the line by impressively recreating this remake of the Dawn of Dead. Moreover, Army of the Dead is Snyder’s first project for the streaming powerhouse, i.e., Netflix.
Even the cast of the film involves some big names such as Raul Castillo, Ana de la Reguera, Dave Bautista, Omari Hardwick and Tig Notaro. However, none of them survives at the end of the movie. So, we can expect a whole new cast if there’s going to be a sequel.
After the huge success of Snyder’s zombie heist, a prequel and spin-off anime are currently under production by Netflix. However, fans are more interested in the main film’s sequel. Hence, we’re going to discuss the prospects of the Army of Dead 2. So, if you still haven’t seen the movie yet, this is your last chance to leave because we’re giving you spoiler alerts in advance.
Is there going to be an Army of the Dead 2?
Well, Netflix hasn’t officially announced any sequel for the Army of the Dead. But if you’ve seen the film, you must be aware that there’s a dog’s chance that there will be an Army of the Dead 2.
Many angles & plots within the current story can turn into a possible sequel. So, if Netflix wants to go ahead with the story, there’s plenty for them to cover.
Generally, determining whether a series will be a sequel will happen or not depends on its sales & popularity. As the Army of the Dead has been a big hit so far. So, it’s safe to say that we can expect the Army of the Dead 2 to come out sometime soon.
Additionally, even Zack Snyder himself shows interest in a sequel to the franchise. Recently in an interview, he told the host that he would love to return for a sequel if Netflix agrees to make one, but that hasn’t been discussed yet.
He further adds that if there’s going to be a sequel, it will be even crazier and more speculating than its predecessor.
Army of the Dead 2: Expected Release Date
As the streaming giant hasn’t officially announced any plans of making a sequel of Army of the Dead to date, so there’s no release date. The complete part 2 of the Army of the dead is mere speculation without any green signal from Netflix. So, we can’t say for sure when you can expect the Army of the Dead 2 to come out. But as per our experience, you shouldn’t expect it to be releasing anytime soon. If part 2 is coming, you can expect it to arrive sometime in 2022 or 2023, not before that.
Who’s going to return?
You must have seen it in the movie. Unfortunately, almost all the main cast is dead by the end. So, there won’t be many returning members in part 2. However, we can expect to see the few survivors return for the potential sequel depending on its plot & location. Some of the potential cast members are:
- Omari Hardwick as Vanderohe
- Matthias Schweighofer as Ludwig Dieter
- Ella Purnell as Kate Ward
- Whereas Hiroyuki Sandana is Bly Tanaka.
If you’re wondering what you should expect from the Army of the Dead 2, then the chances are it’s going to be another zombie apocalypse. And we can surely say that Venderohe’s going to be one causing it, most probably within New Mexico City, Mexico’s capital, as it was where the plane was heading.
The moment when Vanderohe somehow survives the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull style blast inside the vault and was able to continue his journey from recently nuked Vegas to Utah with a lot of cash, fans couldn’t help but hope for a sequel. As he’s been the sole zombie bitten survivor, there are big chances that the sequel will revolve around him.
Even on his way to Utah, when Venderohe realizes that he’s bitten, we can see him wondering what he will cause in the future. As the previous movie ends with the plane heading towards Mexico, we can expect part 2 to happen.
However, other than Venderohe, what more we can predict about Army of the dead 2 is that it’ll see the return of characters like Kate. Also, we can expect to see dieter return as we haven’t seen him die in the movie.
Even in his interview, Snyder hinted at the possible return of Dieter. Because in horror movies, if you don’t see a character die, he isn’t dead.
Army of the Dead 2: Will Venderohe be the new Villain?
The possibilities of Venderohe to be the new Zeus are really bright. Especially after the nuking of Las Vegas by the US government & Vanderohe’s surprise emergence from the rubble. Even though he was locked in the casino vault from earlier in the movie, his character transforms towards the end clearly indicates this.
Even near the movie’s end, when Venderohe realizes he’s bitten by Zeus & the infection is spreading throughout his body. We can see that he’s well aware of what he’s turning into. Therefore, when the pilot tells him to sit in his chair, we can see him laughing at the irony of his condition because he can be the potential cause of a new outbreak in Mexico City.
As the movie ends by fading him into the darkness, we aren’t clearly aware of his situation. Moreover, in an interview before the movie’s release, Hardwick was expressing himself that he’s keen to explore the fate of Venderohe if there’s going to be a part 2.
Moreover, in an interview, Snyder himself reveals that if there’s going to be an Army of the Dead 2, Venderohe’s going to be the new antagonist. He clearly said that Omari would be the Zeus & he’s going to be an even scarier Zeus.
Well, this is all we have got to date about Snyder’s most fantastic movie. But don’t worry, as we’ve got you to tell you, and as soon as we hear something new, we’ll update you.
