Master of the lens Zack Snyder returns, gearing up for the unveiling of the much-anticipated sci-fi epic, Rebel Moon, just around the corner. Empire Magazine has exclusively shared a fresh glimpse of the forthcoming film, introducing Ray Fisher in the role of a warrior armed with a colossal gun, primed for any impending challenge.
FILMSWEEP’S VIDEO HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY
“It’s colossal,” Fisher revealed to Empire Magazine, speaking of his in-movie firearm. “It spans four feet. Almost my height.” More insights into his character remain hidden for now. However, the snapshot reveals him donned in warpaint, a visceral desire for combat evident in his demeanor. It’s a sharp deviation from his earlier portrayal of an unseasoned, young Cyborg in Justice League. Fisher’s new character, aptly named Darrian Bloodaxe, will borrow from timeless cinema, like Seven Samurai, which Snyder previously mentioned as an inspiration for Rebel Moon’s plotline.
“I’ve imbibed the essence of the Seven Samurai,” Fisher commented. “I mimicked specific poses I hold with my weapon after Toshirô Mifune, who carries his katana in a distinctive over-the-shoulder manner. Sometimes before a take, I’d murmur to myself, ‘Mifune.’” Bloodaxe is set to be one among the ensemble in this forthcoming blockbuster from the iconic director, with Fisher sharing screen space with Sofia Boutella, Djimon Hounsou, and Charlie Hunnam, among others. If the recent snapshot is a predictor, viewers can brace themselves for a thrilling, action-stuffed spectacle this festive season when the film premieres on Netflix.

Fisher and Snyder have previously joined forces for Justice League, a production notorious for its fraught and contentious production process. Yet, as the DC Universe charts a fresh course, Snyder is seen returning to his original cinematic style, as demonstrated by Netflix’s Army of the Dead, released in 2021. Rebel Moon perpetuates his ongoing alliance with the streaming platform, and it seems the filmmaker has an even more ambitious narrative to share. The forthcoming film is reportedly the first segment of a monumental two-part saga, with the sequel anticipated to follow shortly. As to whether Netflix is on the brink of unveiling a new hit franchise remains to be seen. The answer will only be revealed once the film hits the streaming platform later this year.
