Zack Snyder is known for his visionary genius and creative conceptions. He has rarely failed to deliver a project that isn’t worthy of blockbuster status. However, in recent times, the director has been at the center of a still ongoing stream of backlash and criticism related to his past collaborative efforts with Warner Bros. Putting all that behind him now, Zack Snyder looks to the future with his Netflix residency.

The Ups and Downs of Zack Snyder’s Career Trajectory

The director has had a brilliant career trajectory with his DC Extended Universe trilogy. The Man of Steel project became the foundation upon which Warner Bros. and DC built the entirety of their current universe. What Snyder had envisioned was a feat marked by excellence and the end result is one that will be prized and cherished by connoisseurs of art and cinema for decades to come.

However, that stretch of good fortune came to an abrupt and ugly end due to creative differences between Zack Snyder and the production. But given the unmarred brilliance that he has shown with all of his endeavors, it is not a stretch to presume that Snyder will keep delivering films of high acclaim and that the Justice League trilogy cannot already be hailed as his magnum opus.

Zack Snyder and Netflix Join Hands Once Again

In the years after the Warner Bros. fiasco, director extraordinaire Zack Snyder did deliver a duology that delivered well in terms of audience reception but also somewhat lacked the divisive element that sets his projects apart from all the rest. The films that were a part of his collaboration with Netflix have already become lost in the barrage of zombie apocalypse projects that have overtaken the entertainment industry since (as far back as) the 60s.

Having taken some time off from making a film just for the sake of making one, Zack Snyder makes a comeback with a project that has legacy written all over it. His Star Wars-like script of Rebel Moon has been filming since April 2022, but recent news confirms that Netflix has already sanctioned its sequel even before the first’s completion. The project, although originally pitched as a Star Wars story, will now be a completely separate film set in Snyder’s created universe.

Whether that indicates we are getting back-to-back releases of a two-part movie or if the sequel will release in its own time is yet to be revealed. However, what we do know is that Rebel Moon has a stellar cast comprising Anthony Hopkins, Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Honsou, and the lead played by Sofia Boutella portrays a young warrior with a mysterious past traversing across worlds to put together a team to fight against the tyrannical Regent Balisarius.
