The staggering credits sequence in “Army of the Dead” covers a lot of plot, as the walking corpses are fought and trapped in Sin City by a squad of mercenaries. Snyder clearly imagined a complicated timeline leading up to the gory heist at the core of his film. But, despite the mystery surrounding the undead’s origins and what happened earlier in the timeline, “Army of the Dead” ends on a cliffhanger, begging for a sequel. So far, nothing has been revealed on that front, but if Netflix plays its cards correctly, the next chapter in this young zombieverse has the potential to be groundbreaking.
Imagine a Spanish-language sequel to “Army of the Dead.” It’s likely that this concept has already been explored, given Netflix’s interest in internationalizing its franchises. “Army of Thieves” is set in Germany and will reportedly feature scenes in German, French, and English. Netflix revealed in March that it will create a Spanish-language sequel to its surprise success “Birdbox,” which will be directed by Adrián Guerra and Nria Valls, who will be making their directorial debuts. That film, which is scheduled to shoot in Spain this year, was allegedly conceived as a sort of spin-off set in the “Birdbox” universe, and other foreign spin-offs may be in the works as well. IMDB
