The Governor isn't the only dangerous man alive in the "Walking Dead" universe. There's another deadly character from Robert Kirkman's comic book series: Negan, the bat-wielding, head-smashing leader of a group called the Saviors. He debuted in "The Walking Dead" #100, but according to Kirkman, Negan could make his television debut earlier than expected.

"That's definitely a real temptation when you are adapting a show," Kirkman told TV Guide when asked if Negan might show up earlier than he does in the comics. "It's sometimes a struggle because I feel like there are very cool things that are waiting in the wings in the comics that we could do earlier in the show."

Michonne

by Brett White

The Hollywood Reporter has an in-depth Q&A with "Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman, just in time to get fans psyched up for the show's involvement at San Diego's Comic-Con International. And even though the show doesn't return to AMC until October, Kirkman was a-okay with giving THR a lot of juicy details about season four. Also, apologies for using the word "juicy" in association with a show about flesh-eating zombies.

One big change to the show is the promotion of writer Scott Gimple to showrunner, following the departure of Glen Mazzara. Kirkman says that this change has resulted in the show taking a new approach to storytelling.

"It's a much more character-based story. It's going to be more focused on who these characters are and what they're going through. To a certain extent, we got away from that a little bit in season three. Coming into season four, we're definitely going to know a lot more about these people so it will be that much more gut-wrenching and worse when we lose these characters." Gimple also marks the first time that a showrunner was a fan of the comic book series from day one, before being brought on as a writer in season two. Because of this, Kirkman teases that a few scenes and moments will hew closer to the comics than ever before.

Walking Dead

Walking Dead

All is quiet on the "Walking Dead" front — unless you know where to look.

Walking Dead

FROM MTV GEEK: Something big is happening in the "Walking Dead" universe.

Over the weekend, Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment released two teaser images called "Survivors" and "Hilltop." What they mean, what they refer to, is anybody's guess. Are these posters for the AMC TV series? Are we about to see two new spinoff titles announced for the "Walking Dead" comic books? Who's to say — but judging by that familiar looking "skull and crossbones" in the "Survivors" image, fans could be in for a world of (even more) hurt.

More info will come out at Image Expo this week. Stay tuned as we learn more.

Head over to MTV Geek for more "Walking Dead" speculation.

Walking Dead

The creative minds behind "The Walking Dead" have shown time and again that they're happy to deviate from the comic book source material, especially where prominent deaths are concerned. Shane stuck around longer on the show, Dale had a much earlier exit … and yet another fan-favorite character from the comics bit the dust much sooner than expected during the season three finale.

It was a death that some die-hard "Walking Dead" fans weren't exactly pleased about. Season three's showrunner Glen Mazzara opened up about the development in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, defending the choice to kill the character off.

Spoilers after the break.

Walking Dead

It's hard to imagine a world without "The Walking Dead," but that world was very much a reality when producers Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert first tried shopping the post-apocalypse zombie series to networks.

"We sold it to NBC in 2005, who liked the book but wanted to do something totally different," said Alpert at the Produced By Conference in Los Angeles on Saturday. "I learned the first time that anytime a broadcast network says, 'We're going to do something totally different,' it's not going to work."
