If Gunnar’s death may have surprised some fans of Rebel Moon and the couple he formed with Kora, an explanation was given by Zack Snyder in an interview given to The Hollywood Reporter. For the director, the death of this important character is crucial for the warrior’s arc. This is even a “springboard“for the latter with a view to a much greater evolution where she becomes more than a simple soldier.”When it comes to love and the why of love, Gunnar is probably the first lover she had that transcended war. This lover was outside the conflict, and he was just a man. Gunnar is a good guy, but he’s just a guy. He’s not necessarily a soldier or a leader, and this is a stepping stone for her. She’s also on the path to redemption, obviously, and Gunnar’s sacrifice is part of that process.“, explained Zack Snyder.

According to a screenwriter, it was always planned that Nemesis would die in Rebel Moon 2

While Gunnar’s death is notable, it is not the only major loss that has taken place in Rebel Moon 2. The first one that happens is that of Nemesis (Bae Doo-na). The young woman sacrificed herself to protect the inhabitants of Veldt against Noble’s soldiers. She shares a final touching scene with a young boy with whom she had become friends. During an interview given to Cinemablend, screenwriter Kurt Johnstad revealed that no other solution had been considered for this character. “We didn’t consider anyone else. The choice was made naturally. The relationship between the young boy and Nemesis showed that her character had softened over the course of Rebel Moon 2. We really wanted to paint the idea that maybe she was going to join her family in another realm, if that. is in the metaphysical sphere. But also that she had accepted her path… that she was going to fight to the end and protect these women and children in this little house. I love this scene..“, he confided.
