Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead receives an official May release date on Netflix. Snyder has become one of the biggest and more polarizing directors in Hollywood over the last decade. Once he exited Justice League and the DC Extended Universe partially because of battling studio executives about his vision, Snyder took his next idea to Netflix. Army of the Dead is a heist movie set in a zombie apocalypse and Snyder has teased that it will be the most Zack Snyder project yet.
Army of the Dead boasts a strong cast led by Dave Bautista and promotional materials have finally started to be released in recent weeks. But, the question that many fans still had was when they’ll actually be able to see the movie. This has largely been overshadowed by the impending release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League in March 2021 on HBO Max. Snyder’s loyal fan base has most of their attention on the four-hour cut of his DC team-up. However, Army of the Dead is rapidly approaching and now has a release date.
Zack Snyder shared some new Army of the Dead information on social media today, including the film’s official May release on Netflix. The director announced a May 21, 2021 release date for Army of the Dead while also sharing a teaser poster and confirming a teaser trailer arrives in a few days.

Now that Army of the Dead is set for a May release on Netflix, it confirms prior rumblings about when fans could see it. A newspaper article profiling cast member Huma S. Qureshi previously said the movie would release in May. This was merely a rumor at first but now it has proven to be accurate, with Snyder providing a more specific release date. The May release for Army of the Dead will give Snyder fans two high-profile films from the director in a short time frame after waiting several years to see another creation of his.
While Snyder’s fans are already excited to see his action-packed zombie heist film, the upcoming trailer for Army of the Dead can help generate wider interest. There have only been a few images and seconds of footage released to this point. The teaser trailer can show audiences what Army of the Dead really has to offer. Given the rather great track record of trailers for Snyder’s movies, there’s no reason to believe Army of the Dead‘s trailer won’t also deliver. Should the footage generate a lot of excitement, the good news is that the movie is only a few months away now.
