We learned a few weeks back that Zack Snyder’s upcoming Army of the Dead is set for a much wider universe with not just a prequel movie but a CGI anime prequel series too (here).

And now Netflix have revealed the full cast for the series, Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, and, there’s no denying it, it’s a cracking line-up:

The series will star Joe Manganiello (Justice League) as Rose, Christian Slater (Mr. Robot) as Torrance, Vanessa Hudgens (Tick Tick… Boom!) as Willow, Harry Lennix (The Blacklist) as Boorman, Anya Chalotra (The Witcher) as Lucilia, Ross Butler (13 Reasons Why) as Chen, Jena Malone (Antebellum) as Zeta, Yetide Badaki (American Gods) as Queen Meeru, Christina Wren (Man of Steel) as Nicole, Monica Barbaro (The Good Cop) as Meagan and Nolan North (Star Trek: Lower Decks) as Clemenson.

This cast will join the movie’s cast of Dave Bautista, Ana de la Reguera, Tig Notaro, Omari Hardwick and Ella Purnell who will all reprise their roles.

Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, will tell the story of the rescue team (in the image above) from the movie and how they survived during the initial outbreak of the zombie virus. Snyder will direct two episodes of the series which will be showrun by Batman: The Dark Knight Returns’ Jay Olivia.

Are you excited for the new zombie universe? Let me know, folks…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
