Army of the Dead‘s Zack Snyder has revealed that he wants to make a pornographic movie at some point.
The director, who is on top of the world right now following the release of the Justice League ‘Snyder Cut’ and the aforementioned Netflix movie, opened up a bit about his fascination with the human body.
Speaking about his love of the work of Renaissance artists such as Caravaggio and Michelangelo, he told The Daily Telegraph: “That kind of appreciation of the human form is something I really warmed to.

“I’ve always wanted to make a religious film and a pornographic film, and I’ve never really yet had the chance to do either. Maybe if I could combine the two… Or maybe 300 is that film, in some sense, a little bit. Or at least a primer for what that film could be.”
Speaking further of his 2007 movie 300 and its fascistic visual overtones, Snyder added: “People have become uncomfortable with something that glorifies the human creature in such a heroic, viscerally physical way.
“When 300 was released, people said it was too physically indulgent – that on some level it was like porn. But from a philosophical standpoint, I guess I’m really into that indulgence.”
It comes after Snyder recently revealed that he wrote the treatment for a new 300 sequel that would have been a gay love story.
“It turned out to be a love story, so it really didn’t fit in as the third movie,” he told The Playlist. “But there was that concept, and it came out really great.
“It’s called Blood and Ashes, and it’s a beautiful love story, really, with warfare. I would love to do it, [WB] said no… you know, they’re not huge fans of mine. It is what it is.”
