There is a level in “Military of the Useless” the place Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro) appears up a information story about how the federal government plans to nuke Las Vegas inside the subsequent couple of days. Nevertheless, when you have been to look instantly beneath that story, you may discover one other headline that reads, “New Info Launched About ’04 Zombie Outbreak in Milwaukee” (through Twitter). Snyder’s “Daybreak of the Useless” got here out in 2004, and it primarily takes place inside a mall in Milwaukee. It is onerous to not assume it is the identical occasion, and it suggests this is not the primary time zombies have run rampant in the USA.
It might point out how “Military of the Useless” and “Daybreak of the Useless” exist inside the identical universe. It could make sense for a zombie outbreak to have taken place earlier than as the federal government was fast to isolate the infestation to Las Vegas, walling it off from the remainder of the world in order that the undead could not unfold to different cities. Possibly officers needed to do one thing related in Milwaukee to curtail a disaster almost 20 years earlier.
It is also attention-grabbing to ponder what this new details about the outbreak is. Maybe the zombies happened below related circumstances to what we see in “Military of the Useless.” Contemplating how “Daybreak of the Useless” did not have any alpha zombies, it is doable the 2 units of creatures arose out of totally completely different circumstances. After all, it might simply be a enjoyable nod to Snyder’s earlier zombie outing, and the 2 films haven’t any connection. With a prequel movie and TV sequence within the works, the precise hyperlink might turn into rather more evident quickly.
