Zack Snyder will take on Norse mythology with an anime-style bent in a new series for Netflix. The as-yet-untitled cartoon will be co-created/showrun by veteran Warner Bros. Animation director Jay Oliva. Oliva has been a storyboard artist on a number of Snyder's live action films including Justice League, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 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," said Netflix's head of Anime Programming John Derderian. "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."
The film will be produced under a new spin-off of Snyder's Stone Quarry shingle called Stone Quarry Animation.
Snyder and Oliva are already working with Netflix on two other projects - Snyder writing and directing Army of the Dead and Oliva producing the animated series Trese.
Netflix has not released a timeline for this project's release.
