Will Negan Have The Same Entrance As In The Comics On TWD? Scott Gimple Discusses - Plus Special Sneak Peek Video Within!
Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
With only two episodes left of this season of THE WALKING DEAD the hype continues to build towards the introduction of the most vicious villain that we have yet to see on TWD. Let's face it, bad things are on the way and THE WALKING DEAD world as we know it is about to change forever.
If you follow the comic books, you know that Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is someone that isn't to be taken lightly, and changes the game upon his entrance. The character has yet to even show his face on screen but has somehow managed to create this incredible wonder as to what is to come.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple recently spoke with EW and addressed this topic saying:
"Let me put it this way: Whatever it is, it’s really just all in service to being faithful to the comic book inasmuch as one can. That’s always going to be relatively subjective as to what that means. But taking inspiration from the moments of the comic book and playing them out to the ends of what it can be, it’s all just like taking that moment from the book and figuring out a way to turn it up to get those feelings that it gave you and those emotions that it gave you that much more.
Sometimes we have things from the book that people who read the comics maybe see coming a mile away, and we try to adjust that so that we can give them the same feeling they had when reading the book, which might have been shock or surprise or fear, any of those things. It might be wildly different, but it’s all to get the same sort of feelings that you got when you read them. So will it be different? Absolutely. Will it be the same thing? Absolutely."
As always, Gimple can only tease us further with his words but one thing is for sure, change is coming in a big way.
We also have for you today a sneak peek video which shows Rick and Michonne discussing the future, taken from episode 615 titled "East."
"When someone goes missing in Alexandria, the community goes on alert, and search parties venture out."
