Netflix has announced that Hollywood director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Suicide Squad) will create an all-new anime series set in the world of Norse mythology. He will also serve as executive producer.
Jay Oliva (Batman The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League The Flashpoint Paradox) is creating the series alongside Snyder and will serve as the showrunner, director, and executive producer. Oliva and Snyder have had a longstanding creative partnership, spanning over a dozen live action feature films, including Justice League, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 300: Rise of an Empire, and Man of Steel.
“Zack Snyder’s innovation in visual storytelling has pushed the industry forward and established him as one of the most distinctive filmmakers of his generation. We are beyond excited to partner with him and his exceptional team to bring the iconic characters and stories of Norse mythology to life in his inimitable style,” commented John Derderian, head of Anime programming for Netflix.
