Zack Snyder Teases Netflix Anime Twilight of the Gods: "It's Looking Amazing"

Speaking with The Nerd Queens in a recent interview, Snyder revealed that the project "looks amazing" and that not only does he work on it every day, but he's very excited about it as well.

"[It] has been forging ahead incredibly well and it's looking amazing," Snyder said. "I'm really excited about it. I work on it every day and it's cool, so that I'm very excited [bout] and it's coming."

The update on Twilight of the Gods is a bit better than the update on Snyder's other anime project, the Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas. Snyder revealed that while the project is still alive at Netflix, it has hit a bit of a stall.

"I will say that there's been a slight stall on the Lost Vegas animated thing," he said. "For technical reasons, it went off the rail a little bit."
