Today AMC revealed The Walking Dead Season 4 banner that will be displayed at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The banner depicts Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) raising their signature weapons before a herd of walkers, while characters Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) fight off walkers to the left and right, respectively.

All they give us is a single picture... and I need more. I need this new season to start ASAP. O_O

This has me excited.

 

Season 1 - Awesome
Season 2 - Draggy

Season 3 - Started out amazing, finale fizzled out. and left baggage.

 

Season 2 should have been condensed to where season 3's mid season finale was its season finale, season 3's season finale would serve as its mid season. I wish they wouldn't have carried the Governor into the next season... but then again the next antagonist in the graphic novel just isn't fit for TV. They had to water down the Governor a little for cable tv... it would have to be A LOT for the next guy. I get that they aren't trying to pass up the novel perhaps... but this isnt anime, filler eps will cause a demise of the program.

 

Graphic novel spoilers

Negan and the Saviors are going to be an issue. From his harem to his face ironing of people, hes going to get watered down pretty bad.

I'm really looking forward to season 4. Its going to be a "best of" season according to the guy.. So all the "best moments" kind of scenarios from all the previous seasons will be in season 4. I'm assuming this means there will be less scenes of people searching the woods endlessly and men bickering over woman drama. There has to be more action. And I'm glad the new season will refocus on the walker threat. Most of the walkers seem so weak in the series. Unless they are in a huge horde or they sneak attack, walkers pose no real threat anymore in this series.

Thats basically how its been in the graphic novel, outside of a few herds as they call them, people are more of the threat than walkers starting with the Governor and beyond. That was in the preface of the first issue. It wasn't necessarily a zombie story, but a story about humans and how they would interact after the world had collapsed as we know it.

I have a feeling the show will have to focus more on the zombie aspect to keep their massive fan base. Considering how they would have to water down some of the new human enemies, people might just see the new antagonists as rehashes of the governor.

I'm wondering by moving all of Woodbury to the Prison, if that will replace the Alexandra Safe Zone from the graphic novel.. It would make sense since they omitted half the prison arch anyways (for cable TV  limitations reasons likely). The swarm that caused them to leave Hershel's farm was pretty large, but I don't think it was a herd. That would require some CG or the old extra's trick they use to use to fill up stadiums in movies. I don't think adding stronger individual walkers would be a good idea. At the same time, reparing the fence just to have to taken down again by a herd would be pretty redundant. Mabye the solution would be to have the Governor cause some areas of weakness in the perimeter to allow a herd to break in and cause damage.... plus they have yet to seal "the tombs" where Tyreese and his group got in from. 

 

I think Martinez is going to kill the governor anyways with this Show Runner.

His death was pretty anti climatic in the comic, being killed by the equivalent of the girl they picked up at the end of season 3.

If they started doing stronger individual walkers then it'd be seen as a rip off of Resident Evil. So I doubt they'll do that. I know Woodbury had a bunch of older people.. I hope they don't drag out explaining a bunch of new characters.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.
