The American screenwriter recently made a jump to Netflix by releasing his zombie epic Army of The Dead.

Producer Deborah Snyder, who is married to Zack Snyder, 言った インディワイア 関して ジャスティスリーグ リリース: “I got absolutely no information from HBO Max or Warner Bros. None.”

“I’m getting a lot more indication [from Netflix about ‘Army of the Dead’], a lot more sharing of information in terms of indicators that are looking good. They won’t be reporting box office because it’s not really about the box office for this — we’re in 600 theatres — but I think the idea was more, this is a big film and they want to eventise it," 彼女は言いました.
