Zack Snyder wants a Rebel Moon spin-off for Doona Bae's Nemesis with Gail Simone

Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon has never been just a movie. In addition to a sequel being in the works as along as the movie has been announced, Snyder has framed Rebel Moon as "a massive IP and a universe that can be built out" across movies, TV, games, and comics. And with the second film, Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver, due out in just a matter of weeks, we're learning more about the broader scope of things.

At this past weekend's WonderCon 2024, Uncanny X-Men writer Gail SImone revealed that Snyder had reached out to her personally to write an as-yet-unnannounced project focused on Donna Bae's Nemesis character from the movies.

Bae debuted as the cyborg swordmaster Nemesis in 2023's Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire, and is expected to reprise her role in April 19's Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver.

It's unclear when Snyder reached out to Simone, but Simone has talked openly about her fandom of Rebel Moon and specifically Nemesis going back to December 2023 when the first film was released, with the writer calling the character "her new favorite."

"Be aware, Rebel Moon is an everything bagel," Simone tweeted about the Netflix movie back then. " If you don’t like everything cool being thrown into the soup, you probably won’t like it. I loved it. Can’t wait for part two."

It's unclear if or when Simone's Nemesis spinoff will debut, or what medium it will be in. The first of several planned Rebel Moon Comics began in January 2024, titled Rebel Moon: House of the Bloodaxe from Titan Comics. Other spinoffs - of which Simone's Nemesis project could be one of them - include announced plans for a TV series, a video game, an animated short, an animated series, and a narrative podcast.
