Another Shot of Merle on the Set of The Walking Dead, You're Going to Dig This One

by ShockTillYouDrop

June 12, 2012

Okay, so it's not exactly news now that Michael Rooker is returning for The Walking Dead season 3. How his Merle Dixon character factors back into the story is up for speculation (It's clear from some previously leaked set pics that he's rolling with David Morrissey's The Governor).

But let's talk about Merle's hand. The man lost it in season one, so how is he dealing with this? Well, a new set pic answers that.

As you can see, Merle has outfitted his stump with what appears to be a spike or a hook. The former seems more logical in the zombie-killin' business. One blow to the head and that walker is down for the count.

Pic comes courtesy of Spoiler TV.

Comic-Con 2012: KNB, Greg Nicotero to Contribute Zombies to Walking Dead Escape!

by ShockTillYouDrop

June 19, 2012

The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego announced its partnership with KNB EFX Group, Inc. and its founder Greg Nicotero, the force behind Special Effects Make-up for TV shows and movies such as AMC's The Walking Dead, Kill Bill, Predators and Land of the Dead, just to name a few.

In conjunction with the release of Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning The Walking Dead Issue #100 at San Diego Comic-Con, The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego takes place July 12 -14 at Petco Park, centrally located near the San Diego Convention Center. Registration is now open at TheWalkingDeadEscape.com.

There are three ways to participate in this epic adventure. Participants can be a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party. Greg Nicotero and his team at KNB EFX will transform those who sign up to be Walkers into the most terrifying zombies to grace San Diego.

With their work on AMC's The Walking Dead, Greg Nicotero and his KNB EFX team have deep experience creating some of the most incredible zombies in the industry. Founded in 1988, they have become one of the most prolific Special Make-up Effects Studios in Hollywood. One look at Nicotero's creations for the undead and The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego participants will know they are in for a zombie experience like no other.

"We couldn't be more pleased to have Greg and his KNB EFX team on board for The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego," said event producer Liam Brenner. "People who sign up to be Walkers will have the opportunity to be completely transformed into zombies by the leader in the Special Make-up Effects industry. It's really a chance of a lifetime!"

Skybound.com's The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is unlike any obstacle course event in the U.S., expanding on the best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel storylines, allowing Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse.

Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers, while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly. If they're lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone at the end where it will be determined if they have been infected.

For more information or to register for the event, please visit www.thewalkingdeadescape.com.

First Look at the Prison for The Walking Dead

by SuperHeroHype

July 02, 2012

With the mild cliffhanger that was the season 2 finale of "The Walking Dead," you're probably still on the edge of your seat waiting for the next season. Take a look at the first pictures of the teased prison location for season 3, courtesy of EW.

Showrunner Glen Mazzara also offered up an explantion of the prison and why he loves it: "I’m incredibly proud of the prison. I think our crew has done a great job. It’s a huge sense of scale and magnitude I haven’t seen on any other show as far as construction. What’s important to us is the prison itself is now a character in the show. It’s a haunted house, it’s scary, it’s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group. It’s not necessarily the blessing that the prison in the comic book turned out to be."

"The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 9pm on AMC and will premiere its third season this fall.

Michonne In Action in The Walking Dead Season 3 Clip!

by ShockTillYouDrop

July 09, 2012

Over the weekend, it was all about The Walking Dead at AMC. The network aired a two season marathon which led up to a sneak peek at season 3. Naturally, that preview of the forthcoming season has hit the web and, after the jump, you'll find a clip featuring the new character - Michonne - in action with her samurai sword.

In addition to the clip, there's also a sizzle reel of sorts featuring the cast and crew talking about what is to come.

Of course, this early preview is in anticipation of Comic-Con which is goin' down in San Diego this week. The series is hosting a giant panel and series newcomers Denai Guerrero and David Morrisey - who play Michonne and The Governor, respectively - will be taking the stage to discuss their rolls with the series regulars.
