Glen Mazzara Says One Big Scene From The Comics Will Definitely Be In The Show


The Governor has finally arrived on the scene in The Walking Dead. Michonne and Andrea are in Woodbury trying to figure out just what type of guy they’ve found themselves in the company of. While fans well know by now the comics and the television show are two completely different animals, there are still questions about what big moments from this story arc will be making the transition from page to screen. That’s exactly what The Hollywood Reporter asked showrunner Glen Mazzara.

Mazzara was asked about five big moments in the comics. While he was slightly dodgy about things like Rick’s hand and Lori’s fate, he was pretty forthcoming about one particular bit. We’ll be seeing a full-on zombie Thunderdome!

The Governor’s arena battlesDesigned as a form of amusement for the denizens of Woodbury, the Governor stages intense arena battles where residents battle amid a sea of walkers — for fun. Michonne eventually winds up becoming a gladiator as a “break” from his abuse.

Mazzara: “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.”

To read how he answered things like Rick’s hand, Michonne’s rape and eventual revenge, and Lori’s fate click here. That’s one scene that many, myself included, hoped would make it into the show. While he didn’t rule out the possibility of some of the other moments, they weren’t that straight of answers. It’s great to have things different from the comics, but there are a few things fans really want to make it in there and it’s nice to know that everyone working on the show share that sentiment. Is there another moment from the Governor arc that you think the show really needs to adapt?
