Zack Snyder‘s deal with Netflix will continue to bring more content to audiences in the forthcoming years. After this year’s Army of the Dead and the upcoming prequel titled Army of Thieves, which Snyder respectively directed and produced, we are now entering sequel territory with the newly named project, Planet of the Dead. This in-development sequel, that Snyder teased back in May 2021, does not, as of yet, have a release date nor has its production schedule been announced. In an interview, Snyder offered one glimpse into the upcoming sequel with the potential return of Ludwig Dieter.
But the real adventure would be to see what happened to him when that safe door closed. Did he get killed by Zeus or not? What happened? We don’t see him die on camera, and there’s still some time left. I won’t tell you what happens in Army of the Dead 2 — aka Planet of the Dead — but let’s just say that there’s a chance Dieter survives.Zack Snyder
With the wait for Planet of the Dead only just beginning, audiences can catch Dieter’s return in the prequel Army of Thieves, which releases tomorrow, October 29, on Netflix. Matthias Schweighofer, who plays the German safecracker, also took over the directing role. Snyder is currently working on his Rebel Moon feature film for the streaming service, a sci-fi adventure inspired by Akira Kurosawa and Star Wars. So, the sequel might not enter production until he wraps up work on it.
