Snyder and Oliva will co-write the series and serve as executive producers. Oliva will also be the showrunner and director. Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller are also on board as producers. Stone Quarry Animation will also take a part in the production.
“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. 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,” said John Derderian, head of Anime programming for Netflix.
Snyder helmed the adaptations of 300, Watchmen, as well as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. Earlier this year, Synder signed up with Netflix to direct, write and produce the zombie thriller Army of the Dead.
Oliva has directed several animated DC films including Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, and Justice League Dark.
