James Gunn and Freddie Prinze Jr. Talk About an R-Rated ‘Scooby-Doo’ Movie

Whether you liked Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead or not, it was still a wild ride. Thanks mainly to the cast and SFX, the Netflix film was a hit and spawned a prequel, an upcoming sequel, and the animated series, Lost Vegas.

If there are no delays, the animated series will appear on Netflix sometime this year. This is the second prequel set in Zack Snyder’s film Army of the Dead universe and will span six episodes. Snyder is busy with other projects at the moment, so it’s being developed by Jay Olivia, who has done a lot of animation for television.

Snyder is still following the project and launched a first image capture (see below) from his Twitch stream.

Just because Snyder isn’t attached doesn’t mean he’s a part of it original cast is not.


The actors below will return to their original roles voicing their respective characters. Some of these actors have been very busy over the past year. So I’ve included some of the other projects he’s working on in case you’re interested. Some projects are in production. Some are “in the box” as they say, but they all work, and that’s great news in this post-pandemic world.

Who’s Returning for Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas

Dave Bautista (Scott Ward)

If there is anyone on this list who is working harder than Bautista this year, let us know in the comments. This huge celeb keeps it sci-fi in 2023 Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Dunebut also dipping its toe into the horror genre for 2022.

Although his fate in Army of the Dead is sealed, we’re curious to see his backstory.

Wine for Bautista:

  • Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas (2022)
  • Dune: Part 2 (2023)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 (2023)
  • Knock at the Cabin (2023)

Ella Purnell (Kate Ward)

Kate Ward was not exactly a favorite among some fans of the series. They claim that through her actions, the heist in the film was ruined. Purnell even had to go online to defend her character by almost making a string diagram about why it wasn’t her fault.

Even so, and since it’s a prequel, Kate is returning to the animated series, and maybe we’ll get a little more backstory about Kate and Scott’s relationship.

Wine for Purnell:

  • Fallout TV series
  • Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas (2022)

Omari Hardwick (Vanderhohe)

Vanderohe gives us the “twist” at the end of the first film and Snyder will probably use it as a starting point in the proper sequel. Hopefully the animated series will delve into something from his past. How he decided to major in philosophy in college and what happened to Scott Ward during Leave Vengeance Operation; a rescue collective that helped the survivors of the zombie apocalypse. Or what it was like working in a convalescent home after Las Vengeance disbanded.

Next up for Hardwick:

  • Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas (2022)
  • Mother (2022)
  • The Mothership (2022)

Ana de la Requera (Maria Cruz)

Talking about Los Vengeance, Ana ca Maria was one of its founding members. Before that, she was a successful businesswoman in Las Vegas with her own repair shop. Once Vegas was completely quarantined and walled off, Ana moved to Southern California. Then she was approached to do the Vegas heist.

May be Lost Vegas will enter her time in Victorville and the secret behind the key he wears around his neck.

I come for Ana de la Requera:

  • Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas (2022)
  • Lupe (2023)
  • Leopard Skin (TV series)

Tig Notaro (Marianne Peters)

Perhaps one of the biggest surprise casting decisions of the Army of the Dead was the last minute digital casting of Tig Notaro as Marianne Peters. Not to say it wasn’t guaranteed, but Tig is usually more of a comedy brand. She is still funny in Army of the Dead but it has an advantage that I have not seen before.

Peters’ participation in Las Vengence earned her a spot in the Vegas heist, where her piloting skills were put to good use. Also a Victorville transplant, Marianne and Ana probably have a few stories to tell.
