Games Of Thrones Meets Walking Dead
Using the popular slogan from Game of Thrones, “Winter is Coming,” The Walking Dead has designed some new posters to highlight Season 8, which will hit AMC this October as Negan and Rick’s War gears up.
AMC released a photo that resembled the Game of Thrones Season 7 posters, but they used Rick Grimes in a White Walker look, which had originally been applied to GOT characters, Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister, among others.
Game of Thrones will hit HBO this July with a brand new season.
Greg Nicotero Talks Winter On The Walking Dead
Comic Book writes:
“The Walking Dead, however, will likely never see winter arrive as it has on Game of Thrones. Executive producer Greg Nicotero weighed in on the subject aboard the Walker Stalker Cruise this summer.”
“I don’t know how we would pull it off,” Nicotero said. “I would love to do it. I know Scott [Gimple] would love to do it. The show is 52 weeks a year. To literally generate an in-between script and shoot in the winter, I don’t know how we would be able to pull it off even though I think it would be great.”
“I think everybody would love to do it because it would be different. I would never wanna rule it out, but it’s tough because that would mean that in the middle of finishing episodes to air, we’d have to be writing another episode. Then you’d have to bring everybody back for a standalone which would be, probably, expensive.”
We’ll Never See Winter On The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead hasn’t really seen any type of drastic weather on the show. Based on the sluggishness and weakness of the walkers, a heavy rain or snowfall might even kill thousands of walkers or turn them to mush.
Do you think we’ll ever see winter on The Walking Dead?
