Facebook reminded me recently that shortly after Disney acquired Lucasfilm, Zack Snyder's name had been one of those floated as helming one of the then-upcoming films. That never happened, and last year, after a groundswell of good press surrounding his Justice League cut and his Netflix film Army of the Dead, word broke that he'd reimagined his pitch to be a wholly new story: Rebel Moon, which Netflix had picked up for his next project.

I wrote about this at the the time, weighing some of the pros and cons. He noted that the goal was to put together a "massive IP and a universe that can be built out," and that seems like the type of project that's right up Netflix's alley: a big, feel-good blockbuster that they can endlessly spin off stories from.
