THIS POST CONTAINS BOTH COMIC (UP TO ISSUE #100) AND T.V. SHOW SPOILERS (UP TO SEASON 2 FINALE) IF YOU HAVEN’T READ OR SEEN EITHER DO NOT READ ON!!!
IFC.com got a chance to interview Glen Mazzara about Season 3 at this year’s Saturn Awards and apparently he can’t wait for us fans to see the new episodes!
“Where we ended up last year, that kind of frenetic adrenalized pace, that’s where we’re picking up. And I really feel — we’re just finishing editing the fifth episode, we’ve delivered the script for eight — it’s a thrill ride. People are really going to say, ‘It’s too intense, they’re burning through story too fast, they’re going too fast, they need to slow down, duh duh.’ I guarantee fans are going to be excited, there’s no way you can tell what’s coming next. It’s really great when the actors get a script and they say, ‘Oh my god, we’re really doing this?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, we’re doing it.’ So it’s exciting and I think that where we ended up last year is our starting point, and then we pick up the pace.”
He then goes on to talk about Michonne and The Governor
“There’s an exciting new energy, Michonne is out there and she’s kicking ass and she feels fresh and exciting, and she comes into our world and meets our characters. It’s an interesting dynamic. It’s something that’s sort of puzzling to our characters. Who is this badass with the sword? That’s hard to figure out.”
“The Governor is a formidable opponent, and I will say he’s an opponent. He’s out there, he’s someone to be afraid of. I think he’s scarier than any zombie out there, any walker. It’s going to be very, very interesting to see him go up against Rick.”
Mazarra then goes on to talk about Sarah Wayne Callies wanting her character to die in the same manner she does in the comics and talks a bit about Shane’s death and Dale’s death.
“All of these folks want a big glorious death. They do. They want a memorable [death]. If you look at what we did with Shane’s death and Dale’s death, those were really emotional moments and what’s nice about our show is when you see deaths in a horror movie, you really don’t cry the way you do on our show when you lose a beloved character. So I think everyone loves working on the show, everyone’s happy, all of that stuff, but yeah they all want their big moment. They want to go out in a blaze of glory.”
And finally, Mazzara talks about Glenn’s death in The Walking Dead Issue #100
“That death in issue 100 was pretty shocking. I thought it was really well done. It’s something that’s really under my skin, but keep in mind that that’s 100 issues in, we’re really just getting into the Governor and Michonne, which I think is issues 20 or something like that, so we have a ways to go. But I know Steven Yeun is very nervous — I don’t want to spoil anything — and I’ve been asked this question before but, I hate to say it, that scene’s really stuck in my head. It’s a good scene. So we’ll see what happens.”
