THE WALKING DEAD Showrunner On Whether We'll See These Five Key Scenes From The Comic
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara has shared his thoughts on the possibility of bringing five of the most iconic (and horrific) moments featuring 'The Governor' from the comic book series to the small screen in the hit AMC series. Check them out below, but be warned as there are some MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!
It's become clear by now that AMC's The Walking Dead is by no means a direct adaptation of Robert Kirkman's hit comic book series. However, showrunner Glen Mazzara talks here about the possibility of bringing five key 'The Governor' moments to the small screen.
'The Governor' Cuts Off Rick's Hand:
We're going to take our time telling that story line and the events of the comic you can see are already diverging with the series with the idea that Andrea and Michonne are the ones who find the helicopter crash and go in and are welcomed in Woodbury. Everything is game; there are a lot of powerful scenes from Robert's book and anything we use organically fits into the story were telling.
'The Governor' Brutally Beats And Rapes 'Michonne':
Right now, the Governor and Michonne are just getting to know each other. They obviously already hate each other and she doesn't trust him. That's a long-running animosity that we intend to get a lot of story out of. Those things are plausible within our universe but we have to earn them.
'The Governor' And His Gladiator Arena Where He Pits Humans Against The Undead:
That's something that I think people can look forward to this season. I'd hope people would think it's an exciting scene. I won't give away who could be in there but it could be anybody.
'The Governor' Gets His Comeuppance At The Hands Of 'Michonne':
Right now she has no reason to do any of these things since she just met the guy. Let's go down the path and watch this relationship develop and give her a reason to have such a hatred and vendetta. We're just getting started. The Governor-Michonne arc is a long story and we want to take our time and do it right and not burn through it and get it over with too quickly. We love these characters and hope they're around for a long time.
'The Governor' Attacks The Prison And 'Lori' Dies As A Result:
As of now, the Governor doesn't even know the prison exists. The story of the season is him and Rick learning about each other and marching toward war. That Lori event happens during his attack and we still have a lot of story to tell. We have had conversations about whether every character should survive the season. I think Lori is looking for redemption and now that Rick has finally gotten to what he considers a safe place for her to have the baby, they need to enter into the next chapter of their life. I think Lori is looking for redemption; I don't think anybody is looking to punish her."
