New details and banner for The Walking Dead season 3; More Michonne!

Today, AMC (via EW) released their banner for The Walking Dead season 3, which will be featured prominently at Comic Con next week.  The image features the series lead, Rick Grimes, flanked on both sides by fan-favorite Michonne and new villain The Governor.  Along with the banner, I've attached the poster without the text for your viewing enjoyment.

In addition to the new artwork, showrunner Glen Mazzara had a few things to say about the two new characters, giving us some insight into what we can expect from them in season 3.

On the setting:

“The entire landscape has fallen to zombies,” says Mazzara of the start of season 3. “The entire world has collapsed, the apocalypse has taken over, the zombies have taken over, there’s no safe place. And I think in the past our characters thought they could find some safe harbor, and now there’s just no good hiding place at all.”

On Michonne:

“Just like in the comic books, she is a badass and she hates the walkers more than anything else,” Mazzara says. “She treats them with contempt. What’s interesting about the version of this character is she has a lot of trouble fitting into human society. She’s probably better off staying out there alone with the walkers. She’ll be very interesting and a complicated character to bring into the fold, if we even do that. She gives us a lot to play with.”

On The Governor:

“David is an incredibly talented actor with a lot of magnetism,” says Mazzara, “and we need somebody who can serve as the foundation, the pillar, for an entire storyline, an entire world of Woodbury. David has the strength to do that. I also think that David’s approach to the character was spot on. He understands that this is an interesting, complex, multilayered, dark figure, and he’s very interested in playing that.”

I wouldn't be surprised in the least if some season 3 footage is shown, albeit probably not a whole lot as it is currently filming.  However, if I were a betting man, I'd put money on seeing Michonne and The Governor in action very soon, with just enough footage to get everyone amped.

The Walking Dead season 3 will return this Fall on AMC.
