Zack Snyder Fans React to 'Army of the Dead' Announcement
In May of 2017, Zack Snyder officially stepped away from directing Justice League in the wake of a family tragedy, leading fans to wonder when he would return to the director's chair. After close to two years of speculation and Snyder being involved with projects in various capacities, his next directing project is confirmed as the zombie movie Army of the Dead for Netflix.
In recent years, fans have grown familiar with Snyder's offerings in the world of comic books, thanks to films like 300, Watchmen, and Man of Steel, though one of his breakout projects was helming the remake of George Romero's Dawn of the Dead in 2004. Not only are fans excited to see the filmmaker confirm any project, his return not only to horror but to the zombie subgenre specifically inspired countless excited reactions from fans all across social media.

Having Zack Snyder back at another zombie movie is actually a good decision. His Dawn of the Dead remake was really good.— Knight of Cerebus (@SciOperative) January 30, 2019
