Zack Snyder could have simply confirmed some long-held fan theories about Military of the Lifeless and the franchise as an entire. In an unique interview with GamesRadar, Snyder mentioned the growth of the movie’s universe, together with the shortly approaching prequel Military of Thieves and the now-confirmed sequel Planet of the Lifeless. In it, he goes on a small tangent about how the historical past of the primary film and its prequel feed right into a time loop that he plans to discover within the sequel.
“I am an enormous fan of this mythological understory,” Snyder mentioned concerning the historic connection between the safes seen in Military of the Lifeless and its prequel in addition to the background for villain Bly Tanaka. “All of your time loop enjoyable you can have, there’s lots of cool enhancements which might be baked in now. I can not wait to make the sequel to Military of the Lifeless, in order that we will see how then all of these issues manifest.” It appears he is eager on exploring the time loop additional in Planet of the Lifeless, solely now with the added context of Dieter and the safes within the prequel film.
Initially, followers got here up with the time loop principle given among the odd dialogue decisions and mission sequences that appear like an alternate timeline the place the heist goes off with no hitch. The important thing second, nevertheless, is the group discovering a number of our bodies outdoors of Tanaka’s vault with eerily comparable clothes to themselves which, in context with Vanderohe seeing Tanaka as a puppet grasp and the important thing that appears equivalent to Maria’s necklace, virtually screams that they had been there earlier than. With Snyder teasing a time loop for the sequel, these clues really feel much more ironclad.
Snyder has beforehand teased the favored fan principle. He introduced up the clues that trace at a time loop in TheFilmJunkee’s Vodka Steam, per ScreenRant, and, whereas he did not outright affirm the speculation, he danced round it:
I may even say that… there’s an opportunity – and I am not saying that is 100% true, and in some methods it isn’t – however the group on the desk, I imply, it is fairly delicate, however that is them additionally on the desk in addition to… they get farther each time. Is that this the time they made all of it the way in which to the cash?
Earlier than we get to see a while loop exploration on a planetary scale, we’ll get to see extra of our favourite German safecracker performed by Matthias Schweighöfer in Military of Thieves beginning on October twenty ninth.
