Army of Thieves: What Is The Movie’s Connection To Army Of The Dead?


Army of Thieves: The movie Army of Thieves: Invasion in Europe arrived last Friday (29) on the Netflix catalog and is in the top 10 of the platform since its release. For those who don’t remember, the idea for the movie was born as a derivative of Army of the Dead, directed by Zack Snyder.

Despite being a spin-off from the zombie movie, you don’t need to watch the first movie released to understand Army of Thieves. That’s because the new film precedes the events of Army of the Dead and the only connection between the two is the presence of the character Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer).

In the plot, Dieter is a banker recruited by a woman named Gwendoline to rob several of Europe’s overprotected coffers. This is all alongside the biggest and most wanted thieves in the world. That’s how he gained fame among criminals to the point of being called in for the Las Vegas invasion.

Mystery solved?

In Army of the Dead, the group of thieves finds only the remains of other people who, it seems, were also trying to get the money from the vault. With the release of Army of Thieves, fans believe the bodies were actually Gwendoline’s gang.

According to viewers, the clue comes when the character tells Dieter that Hans Wagner’s safe is in Las Vegas and that, even with the virus in the city, he would go there to get the money. Thus, it is believed that the group went there and died on the spot.
