Comic-Con trailer: What or Who is the new threat to Rick and crew in season four of The Walking Dead?

Jul. 19, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Fans of THE WALKING DEAD must be excited that we've gotten all these photos from the show. Now allow me to top that off with the nearly four and a half minute trailer for the new season. This is straight out of Comic Con, and gives us tons of scenarios to contemplate. For those who haven't read the comics anyway. Now they can go a different direction with the group but we'll have to wait until October to see what happens.

There's a lot going on here to fill like three or more pages so I think I'll let you check it out rather than recap. Not to mention that it would be a better experience for you to see than for me to give you my boring as, not as cool commentary. But I just want to say Tyreese and his hammer made my f*cking day.

THE WALKING DEAD returns October 13th, 2013.

It looks like potential for a great season. I know there are a lot of people that don't like the show and think it has gone down hill since season 1. Granted they shit the bed with Season 2, but I think the writers worked hard to bring it back up to a great calibre for season 3. Perhaps not the best writing, but definitely working off season 2 to make it as great as possible. The trailer looks like they're definitely trying to keep that momentum. I was wondering what they'd do with the

I was wondering what they'd do with the prison storyline at the end of season 3. It looks like they're trying to combine the prison storyline with the Hilltop storyline, which sounds great since the Hilltop was incredibly repetitive of the prison storyline. I dunno, you got Darryl, Michonne, Tyreese, this is looking like a season with some bad ass zombie kills.

I really don't understand the appeal of this show. I love the comics, but the show is a neutered version of it. I understand that things can't be exactly like they are in the comics, but if they followed it more closely I'd consider watching it. Take Laurie's death in the comics, compared to the show, it was way more shocking and brutal in the comic given that she dies along with the newborn baby and that Rick witnessed it. And why haven't they cut off Rick's hand yet?!

as someone who has read the comics, i dont understand your logic. Why would you want it to have all the same deaths and outcomes you already know are coming.

Why not have it be like the comic? Clearly it's better written and more engaging than what's put on screen. I'd rather have that than all the emotional plundering the shows does. With the little girl that went missing in season 2, or the drawn out deaths of Laurie and Andrea. Or why not have The Governor rape and torture Micchone like he does in the comics? It would give more emotional weight to the story when she gets her revenge, having said that, they should have made it more like the comics

There's plenty of "emotional plundering" that goes on in the comics. If you've been reading the comics lately, you might even say that's all that's been going on in the story. Granted there were storylines in season 2 that were lame, but I think everyone is very aware of that and the writers are trying to steer the show clear of that type of storytelling in the future, that is very evident by season 3.

As far as the rape and torture of Michonne, it's very simple why they didn't show

As far as the rape and torture of Michonne, it's very simple why they didn't show that, comics is a pretty niche medium. You can put stuff into literature and know that it won't reach everyone. TV is a very different medium in that the material will reach out to a wide variety of different people, you can call it censorship all you want, but I'm sure parents out there don't want their kids seeing someone get raped, I'm sure there are grown woman that would appreciate not having to sit through someone being raped.

As for Rick's hand, I think the simple reason why he hasn't lost his hand, at least not yet, is because of cost. It would be a lot of money for the cgi to remove his hand for every episode. And if you're going to compare it to Hershel losing his leg, notice how he's filmed in the show now, usually sitting down or his pants are always left hanging, it costs less for the cgi that way. Whereas the star of his show will need to be seen doing stuff all the time throughout an episode, he'll need to be constantly seen without a hand. Sucks that's the reason why, but what can ya do, I don't think Rick still having his hand ruins the show's quality by any means.

@MickLoud - I understand all of that, but I just wish there was an easier way around it. And I stopped reading the comics after the 13th volume. So I might be a lil out of the loop with the current storyline. And I don't think them not chopping off Rick's hand hurt the quality of show, but it would've been a shock and ultimately more enjoyable if they pulled it off on tv, having your main character missing a hand and all isn't what studio execs would probably want (only Ash coud pull it off).

But yeah, the show could be so much better if it truly wanted to be, that's why I always thought it should have been on Showtime or HBO. Just imagine if it had that kind of freedom. Man....

that was awesome! The first minute felt like a movie! Zombieland 2 without the comedy. I haven't read the comics, but it looked like they went back to the hospital where Rick was in the first episode. Do they ever say what happened to Carl's mom's body? It just disappeared! Can't wait for season 4!!

Her body was eaten. Last season Rick went into the cellar and found a bloated zombie next to where she died. I'm assuming he ate her and they just buried the remains outside off screen.

Clif is right, that zombie was also shown with her hair in his mouth.

So there's a serial killer within the prison group. That's cool. I was hoping it was Sharknado. Now that would be a threat to go along with zombies.
