For those keeping track, this makes the third director change? twitter.com/TheWrap/status…
The first banner for the third season of The Walking Dead has been released, and we get a good look at two important characters this show is sure to mess up.
The banner above was released ahead of next week’s San Diego Comic Con and in addition to showing Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) it also gives us our first good looks at Michonne (Danai Gurira) and The Governor (David Morrissey). Anyone who has read the comic knows this is where things get really interesting as we will also be dealing with the prison, and if you look past The Governor you can also see what you have to suspect will be the crashed helicopter.
Michonne, at least in the comic, becomes an essential member of the band of survivors we all know. And The Governor … well … lets just say some survivors will carry a mark from him they will never forget.
Some of the biggest elements of the comics are about to hit the screen, and while season 1 and 2 left me less than thrilled, I can’t help but watch and see how they handle these story elements. Will the prison contain the same secrets it did in the book? Will The Governor still have his special little friend? Will the eventual resolution have the same impact it did in the book?
This is either going to be one of the most awesome seasons of television ever, or I may end up throwing something at my TV.
