Who survives in Army of the Dead?
Kate survives, as does her dad, but Ward’s survival is only fleeting: overcome by his injuries and Zeus’s bite, he dies and immediately comes back as a zombie, with Kate tearfully dispatching him with a quick bullet to the forehead.
Will Dieter return for Army of the Dead 2?
Snyder has already hinted that Matthias Schweighöfer may return to Army of the dead 2 as Ludwig Dieter, and also teased that the character will “want to find a jailed Gwendoline” in Army of the Dead 2, if he did survive.
Did Dieter live?
Zeus killed him outright (though Snyder spoke unfavorably about this option). Zeus bit Dieter, converting him into an alpha or even a king zombie. Dieter convinced Zeus to let him live.
