In a surprising turn of events, celebrated filmmaker Zack Snyder has declared that television is now a riskier venture than movies. This revelation has left fans wondering if the director, known for his blockbuster hits, might soon venture into the world of TV.
In this article, we’ll explore the possibility of Snyder creating Netflix shows and discuss the upcoming release of his film Rebel Moon. So, grab your popcorn and join us for a witty and fun-filled ride through the latest news in the SnyderVerse.
Could Zack Snyder start making TV shows for Netflix?
Zack Snyder, the mastermind behind the SnyderVerse and films like 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League, has recently opened up about the risks associated with modern television. Speaking to Anthony and Joe Russo on their Pizza Film School podcast (via The Playlist), they all raved about HBO’s Euphoria and Netflix’s Squid Game. During the conversion, Snyder acknowledged that TV shows have become more daring, citing the boundary-pushing series Euphoria as an example. This candid admission has prompted speculation about whether the director might be considering a foray into the world of television himself.
During their conversation, Snyder and the Russo brothers discussed the creative freedom that comes with working on television projects. Here’s what Snyder had to say on the matter:
I think we’re in a real golden age of TV in the sense that TV shows are much better at showing you something that you’ve never seen before, or catching you off balance or making a turn that you didn’t see coming. They’re way riskier.
Euphoria, for instance, I was just watching the show [and] it’s just unbelievable. That show shouldn’t exist; it’s so good. And that’s the kind of thing… I watch that show and go, ‘This movie would never get made; this movie can’t exist.’
While Snyder has yet to announce any plans to create a TV series, his admiration for the medium is clear. Given his penchant for taking risks and pushing boundaries, it’s not hard to imagine him embracing the challenge of crafting his own TV show. Netflix, the streaming giant responsible for releasing Snyder’s zombie flick Army of the Dead, could provide the perfect platform for such a venture. The streaming service is known for its support of visionary filmmakers and has already provided a home for Snyder’s work in the past. A partnership between Snyder and Netflix could result in a television series that combines the director’s unique vision with the creative freedom afforded by the streaming platform.
The prospect of a TV show set within the SnyderVerse is sure to excite the legions of Snyder fandom, who have been clamouring for more content from the director since the release of his director’s cut of Justice League. Whether it’s a gritty drama or a superhero epic, the idea of a Zack Snyder television series has the potential to capture the imagination of viewers and take the small screen by storm.
When will Rebel Moon be released on Netflix?
While fans eagerly await news of a potential Zack Snyder TV show, they can look forward to the upcoming release of his Netflix film, Rebel Moon. The sci-fi epic, which is currently in post-production, promises to deliver another visually stunning and action-packed adventure from the acclaimed director.
It was announced by Netflix not long ago that the movie would be coming to their streaming platform on December 22nd, later this year, and the anticipation surrounding Rebel Moon is palpable. Snyder has described the film as a “big, crazy space opera”, and it’s expected to showcase the director’s signature blend of breathtaking visuals and high-octane action. Given the excitement that the film has generated, it’s likely that Netflix will be keen to capitalise on the buzz and release the film as soon as possible.
In the meantime, fans of the SnyderVerse can rest assured that the director is hard at work creating his next cinematic masterpiece. While they may have to wait a little longer to see Rebel Moon on their screens, the prospect of a Zack Snyder space opera is surely worth the wait.
While Zack Snyder has not yet confirmed any plans to create a TV series, his recent comments about the risks and rewards of television suggest that he may be considering a foray into the medium. With Netflix providing a potential platform for his unique vision, a Snyder-directed TV show could be an exciting possibility for fans of the director’s work. As anticipation builds for the release of Rebel Moon, the future of the SnyderVerse looks brighter than ever.
Whether or not Zack Snyder ultimately decides to embrace the world of television, his dedication to pushing creative boundaries and delivering groundbreaking content is undeniable. The prospect of a Snyder-directed TV show would undoubtedly excite his fans, offering them another opportunity to immerse themselves in his singular vision. As we await further news on this front and the eventual release of Rebel Moon (parts 1 and 2), it’s clear that the future of the SnyderVerse is filled with limitless possibilities and thrilling adventures. So, buckle up, dear readers, and prepare for a wild ride through the ever-expanding universe of Zack Snyder’s imagination.
