Zack Snyder has revealed that a character who is believed to have died in Army of the Dead, but appears in the prequel, may return for Part 2 as well.
Zack Snyder mocks a character believed to be dead after his zombie movie Army of the Dead have a chance to return to the sequel Planet of the Dead. The original film, which follows a crack team that staged a casino heist in Las Vegas even though the city was filled with hordes of the undead, premiered on Netflix in May this year. The streamer has turned the film into a wide-ranging franchise, which is planned to include at least 2 sequels, a prequel, 3 spinoffs, and the animated prequel Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, which comes in Spring 2022.
One of the members of the heist team at the center Army of the Dead is Dieter, played by Matthias Schweighöfer. Dieter was a safecracker hired to take the team to Bly Tanaka’s large vault. Unfortunately, at the end of the film, he sacrifices himself by throwing himself in the way of the intelligent Alpha zombie Zeus so that Omari Hardwick’s character Vanderohe can enter safely. Although he is presumed dead, he is scheduled to appear in the prequel Army of Thieves, scheduled six years before the events of Army of the Dead. The film follows Dieter as he trains his safecracking skills at the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse. Army of Thieves in the direction of Schweighöfer himself and will air on Netflix this week.
As is well known, Dieter is probably the sticker holding the entire franchise. While talking to inverted, asked director Zack Snyder if fans could see what Dieter had planned between the events of Army of Thieves and Army of the Dead and received a shocking response. He admitted that “we cannot see [Dieter] die on camera, and have time left.“He didn’t want to reveal any details of the new film’s plot, but”let’s just say Dieter has a chance to survive.“Read the full excerpt below:
Obviously, he used his money to open a locksmith shop wherever he was-Barstow or San Bernandino. I don’t know that he has done much besides [accrue] a client. He certainly has a lot of confidence in his ability [install] locks on their back balconies.
But the real adventure is to see what happens to him when the safe door closes. Did Zeus kill him or not? What happened? We didn’t see him die on camera, and there was still time left. I won’t tell you what will happen in Army of the Dead 2 – aka Planet of the Dead – but let’s say Dieter has a chance to live. And there was a time when the death penalty caused him to want to find a imprisoned Gwendoline.
Gwendoline is what Snyder is referring to as a character to introduce Army of Thieves. She is the mysterious woman who masterminds the heist centered in the film, bringing Dieter to his first job. He is also the name of the locksmith business that Dieter ran in the original film. Gwendoline is played by Nathalie Emmanuel, a British actress who has just been spotted F9 AGAIN her Nasuko 7 role as Ramsey, the hacker who created the Eye of God.
Planet of the Dead is in pre-production now, so many casting details are not yet known. However, Schweighöfer has been heavily involved with the franchise throughout its development, so it’s likely that if he’s scheduled to appear again, the decision has already been made. Dropping Snyder Dieter’s name definitely seems like more of a hint, as he knows how the character fits into the film’s plot.
