For the first time in his career, Snyder will co-create and executive produce an anime television series set in the world of Norse mythology for the streaming giant. This means we could be treated to new stories involving the pantheon of Norse gods like Thor, Loki, and Odin, as well as retellings of their heroic stories.
Oliva and Snyder have had a longstanding creative partnership, spanning over a dozen live action feature films including Justice League, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 300: Rise of an Empire, and Man of Steel.
Snyder is now at work on another Netflix project, Army of the Dead, a movie that was conceived of as a sequel to Snyder's Dawn of the Dead reboot from 2004. Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller are also on board as producers. Stone Quarry Animation is handling production. Oliva will also be the showrunner and director. However, Neil Gaiman did write up a book about Norse mythology - called, unpredictably enough, Norse Mythology - so that could make for a wildly interesting collaboration.
Netflix has not released a timeline for this project's release. Dave Bautista and Theo Rossi are two of the names attached to star in Snyder's directorial return. He's also involved with the in-production anime series Trese, based on the Filipino horror/crime comics from writer Budjette Tan and artist Kajo Baldisimo. A trio of new anime series in "Cannon Busters", "Seis Manos," and "Levius" will all launch on Netflix later in 2019. The Hollywood Reporter has it that Snyder will serve as an executive producer on an anime show about Norse mythology.
