2021 is a great year for Zack Snyder with Justice League and Army of the Dead, but it’s unusual for a director to have two projects released so close together.

How has Zack Snyder managed to make 2021 his year, with Zack Snyder’s Justice League Y Army of the deadTwo major movie premieres, a few weeks apart? Zack Snyder has been arguably the most talked about director of the past year, and that’s in large part thanks to his next version of League of Justice, nicknamed the “Snyder cut”. After the controversial fallout surrounding Joss Whedon’s 2017 League of Justice Reshoots, Snyder will deliver a thoroughbred 4-hour superhero epic that restores his original vision for the DCEU and hopefully fixes theatrical editing mistakes.

Army of the dead will hit Netflix on May 21, just over two months later Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueHBO Max premiere on March 18. Even considering they’re both streaming releases, that’s an unusually short gap for a single director, and the unconventional journey of the Snyder cut is largely responsible. When Zack Snyder initially departed League of Justice In 2017, the film was in the post-production phase, and most of the way was reportedly completed before Joss Whedon’s new recordings reviewed the film. After Warner Bros. finally agreed to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut in 2020, Snyder put the finishing touches on his version of League of Justice and shot minimal additional footage for most of the year, ending in January 2021.

Army of the dead, on the other hand, went into pre-production in early 2019 before filming in July. Principal photography was finished in late October, but new shots were required when Chris D’Elia was replaced by Tig Notaro in August 2020, and some digital manipulation was required to soften the actress’s scenes in existing footage.

Snyder’s cut is obviously the most anticipated and will undoubtedly make the most headlines. While Zack Snyder’s Justice League you will have to try very Hard to be as bad as the 2017 version, it could be hampered by the intense hype that has been building up for the last 3 and a half years. Unlike, Army of the dead It comes with less baggage and less expectations, but it has a strong cast and looks incredibly promising in the latest trailer. Released on Netflix instead of HBO Max, Snyder’s zombie offering will also enjoy a wider audience. Whichever movie ends up earning the most applause, the real winner is, of course, Snyder himself.
