Twilight of the Gods, Zack Snyder’s planned Norse mythology-inspired anime series, now officially titled Twilight of the Gods, boasts a big star-studded casting. Snyder’s continued cooperation with Netflix, which recently produced the zombie heist film Army of the Dead, resulted in the announcement of the show in 2020. There’s no word yet on when Twilight of the Gods will be available on Netflix.
Netflix has been putting in a lot of effort in generating high-quality original animated content for a few years now. This has included both western-developed series like Castlevania and Blood of Zeus, as well as collaborations with Japanese studios for shows like Devilman Crybaby and Godzilla Singular Point.
Snyder is now working on a number of animation projects for Netflix, including an Army of the Dead prequel series. Now, some major information about the mystery other project has been made public.
Twilight of the Gods is the official name for Snyder’s Norse-themed series, which will have a stellar ensemble voice cast. Sylvia Hoeks will play Sigrid, Stuart Martin will perform Leif, Pilou Asbk will play Thor, John Noble will act Odin, Paterson Joseph will play Loki, Rahul Kohli will act Egill, Jamie Clayton will take The Seid-Kona, Kristopher Hivju will play Andvari, Peter Stormare will play Ulfr, Jamie Chung will perform Hel, Lauren Cohan will play Inge, and Corey Stoll will play Hrafnkel The formal announcement can be found here.
The show’s title also gives away a lot, implying that the Norse apocalypse event Ragnarök will play a big part in the plot. Twilight of the Gods is also the title of a number of other notable works of art based on Norse mythology, like the final instalment of Richard Wagner’s renowned opera series The Ring of the Nibelung.
Snyder has always included mythological allusions in his films, but they’ve primarily been Greek mythology up until recently. When Twilight of the Gods premieres on Netflix, it will be wonderful to watch what Snyder and his star-studded cast accomplish with the Norse mythology.
