Danai Gurira, Andrew Lincoln Talk to EW; ComicBook on Negan As Vader

This week, Danai Gurira and Andrew Lincoln talk to Entertainment Weekly, while ComicBook.com posts a photo of Darth Vader as Negan. Plus, Cinema Blend spotlights Tom Luse comparing The Walking Dead to Star Wars. Read on for more:

• Danai Gurira tells Entertainment Weekly about everyone reuniting, how it “was very emotional to reconnect and have that bond and be reunited and stepping into a new time.”

• Discussing the show with Entertainment Weekly, Andrew Lincoln says, “I stand by everybody telling this story, particularly the writers and everybody directing it. I think it’s a very brave, bold, and also challenging story that we’re attempting.”

ComicBook.com notes how Greg Nicotero posted a photo where “Darth Vader is standing in for Negan, backed by an army of Stormtroopers, Lucille in hand, with a couple of Resistance pilots on their knees awaiting his order on who will die.”

Cinema Blend spotlights Tom Luse’s comments to amc.com that Season 7’s second half is “the Rebel Alliance fighting back against the Empire.”

• Greg Nicotero reveals to Entertainment Weekly that the result of the heartbreak and brutality in Season 7’s first half “will be seeing a stronger Rick Grimes, a stronger bond, and a more focused and dedicated group.”

ComicBook.com highlights a new photo of Khary Payton as King Ezekiel “with his jungle cat from the set of The Walking Dead.”

• “We knew it was only a matter of time before Rick encountered King Ezekiel, and in this new promo for February’s return of The Walking Dead, the two leaders come face-to-face for the first time…,” ComicBookMovie.com writes.

Crave checks out “the memes that celebrate and skewer our favorite show about zombies, saintly sheriffs, and bikers wielding barbed wire bats. Here are 14 of the most opinionated — each in their own right a home run.”

Bloody Disgusting reports that Funko’s new Mystery Minis line includes The Walking Dead characters “who are unfortunately no longer with us,” like Abraham, Glenn, Dale, Shane, Lizzie, Lori and Merle.

• Elizabeth Ludlow says, “I did receive my fair share of negativity for killing Olivia but it was expected. She was an extremely loved character so I had an expectation of negativity when I read the script for that day,” ComicBook.com reports.

• Maggie and Glenn feature as one of MoviePilot‘s tragic TV couples: “With a baby on the way and a pretty happy life ahead of them, Maggie and Glenn said their goodbyes in the most awful way — while Negan bashed Glenn’s brain in.”

Binge Season 7 now on XBox One, Apple TV, Roku, AMC Mobile Apps and amc.com.
