The ambitious risk Netflix is taking on a Zack Snyder sci-fi franchise looks like it could be worth it, based on these damn good character posters presenting the sci-fi ensemble of Rebel Moon Part One: A Child of Fire.
Originally conceived as a Snyder original idea that pivoted to a Star Wars film and is now back to a space Snyderverse of his own, the Netflix two-partner has followed up its visual feast of a trailer with new character posters. The Rebel Moon Universe is led by Sofia Boutella as Kora, a galactic military defector, and Anthony Hopkins as the former royal guard robot Jimmy. Together they head up a large ensemble of names that are familiar from all across the genre fandom of shows and movies. There’s two Daarios from Game of Thrones: Michiel Huisman and Ed Skrein star opposite each other as enemies, instead of the same guy vying for a Targaryen heart. Snyder’s also brought in The Justice League star Ray Fisher, his Cyborg; the squad of galactic warriors willing to risk it all for freedom also includes stars like Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Djimon Hounsou (Shazam), Doona Bae (Sense8), and Staz Nair (Supergirl), as well as newcomer E. Duffy.
Here’s a look at their characters for a vibe of each character’s fighting class—er, role in Snyder’s new vision for a space opera, with his signature gorgeously shot action, violence, and blood.
