Zack Snyder’s next big feature for Netflix is compiling its cast, and it’s shaping up to be very exciting. Snyder’s Star Wars-esque live-action feature film for the streamer is a passion project for the filmmaker. This made Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon one of the most anticipated movies from the director and we’ve got the cast list now. Surely, Netflix is happy with this next project from the director who brought them the hits Army of the Dead and Army of Thieves. Also, we learned that the director and Cyborg, actor Ray Fisher, will reunite in Rebel Moon. And that’s exciting for a whole lot of reasons.

What was originally a Star Wars pitch from Zack Snyder, Rebel Moon is now becoming its own original feature film on Netflix. The story comes from Snyder himself, as he co-writes the screenplay with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad. Snyder’s success with Netflix began with Army Of the Dead, and its’ subsequent prequel movie, Army Of Thieves. While there’s another entry into the Dead Universe coming out as an anime, Lost Vegas, Snyder and Netflix are moving on to their next big thing.

Rebel Moon is all about how a quiet colony on edges of the galaxy gets embroiled in a war with a space tyrant. To protect themselves, they charge a young woman, possibly played by Sofia Boutella, to recruit other worthy warriors to return and help them. Enter the awesome Rebel Moon cast list, that confirms the ensemble nature of Zack Snyder’s next movie.

Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon has a strong cast. While we already knew about Sofia Boutella’s addition, potentially as the lead, we now have confirmation of the full cast list for Rebel Moon. Leading the pack of new additions is Charlie Hunnam from Sons Of Anarchy. The Brit made his bones after the show on movies like Pacific Rim, The Gentleman and the upcoming Apple+ TV series, Shantaram. Along with him is Djoumoun Honsou, (Guardians Of The Galaxy, Shazam!) Who is undoubtedly also playing one of the warriors needed to stand up for the colony.

The full casting also has Bae Doona joining Rebel Moon. Fans will know Doona from her roles in Sense 8 and the recent The Silent Sea. But one of the more interesting bits of casting includes the confirmation of Ray Fisher in Rebel Moon. The actor reunites with his Justice League director after years.

Ray Fisher on the Rebel Moon Cast List Feels Like Vindication

Ray Fisher and his ties to the DCEU are well-known, but perhaps not as well-known as his campaign against his former bosses. Multiple times in recent months, he’s called out what he saw as mistreatment on the set of Justice League. This didn’t happen under Snyder, but Fisher says that replacement director Joss Whedon was a nightmare to work for. Warner Bros. and DC Films have denied Fisher’s allegations. Still, many of his costars corroborated the patterns outlined by Fisher, as have other actors who worked with Whedon in the past. Most recently, Whedon broke his silence and ended up calling Fisher ‘a bad actor’. Most fans have pointed out that Zack Snyder’s Justice League featured a lot more of Fisher’s character’s story arc, and the movie was better for it. With Ray Fisher in Rebel Moon, under the same director as Justice League, audiences will finally get a another look at Fisher’s acting.

Since 2017, Snyder has discussed often how he crafted Justice League around the emotional arc of Fisher’s Cyborg. In so many ways, this reuniting of Snyder and Fisher feels like vindication for all the fingers pointed at Fisher during his revelations about Whedon and WB. Ray Fisher in Rebel Moon will have the opportunity to showcase his talent in something other than the Cyborg role, showcasing a broader range for all his detractors. And all his fans too. It’s just another feather in the hat of the Rebel Moon cast.

Rebel Moon is currently in pre-production, no word yet on a Netflix release date.

Stay tuned to this space for more updates on the movie’s casting and production. How do you feel about the reveal of this Rebel Moon cast list? Anyone that stands out to you particularly? Stay tuned to this piece for any new additions to the cast.
