We don’t know what it’s about but we know who’s in it

It’s already been a busy year for Zack Snyder, but it’s about to get even busier. The Army of the Dead and Justice League director revealed the first look at his upcoming Netflix anime Twilight of the Gods, which is all about Norse mythology, during Netflix’s Geeked Week event on Thursday.

Apparently the show will be Snyder’s own take on traditional mythology. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything else about the show. The one extra bit teasing we did get is an announcement of the show’s cast and the characters they’ll be playing.

Among the highlights of the cast are John Noble (Lord of the Rings) as Odin, Paterson Joseph (The Beach) as Loki, Corey Stoll (Ant-Man) as Hrafnkel, Kristopher Hivju (Game of Thrones) as Andvari, Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones) as Thor, and Peter Stormare (Fargo) as Ulfr. Based on the characters, we can probably expect plenty of Asgardian intrigue.

Snyder is serving on the series as an executive producer and it doesn’t appear his role will extend further than that. The studio behind the show is called Digital Dimension. This is Snyder’s second animated project with Netflix, alongside the Army of the Dead spinoff series that was announced earlier this year.
