Invincible creator Robert Kirkman hopes to reunite former Walking Dead co-stars Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira in future seasons of his adult animated superhero series. Lincoln and Gurira, who played partners Rick Grimes and Michonne before their respective exits in Seasons 9 and 10 of the AMC zombie drama, would join a cast led by their former Walking Dead co-star Steven Yeun as the voice of 17-year-old costumed crime-fighter Mark Grayson. The series, already renewed for Seasons 2 and 3 at Amazon Prime Video, reunites current Walking Dead stars Lauren Cohan, Khary Payton, and Ross Marquand with former cast members Chad Coleman, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James, and Sonequa Martin-Green.

"I can't say [who I would cast them as] because hopefully that will happen at some point. I wouldn't want to spoil it. But you know, there are ideas," Kirkman said of Lincoln and Gurira during his Robert Kirkman @ Home Q&A during San Diego Comic-Con@Home. "If we end up going multiple seasons on Invincible, hopefully every actor from Walking Dead and [Kirkman's live-action Cinemax series] Outcast will get to appear."

Kirkman continued: "I'm very excited about bringing people back to work with me because I miss people that have left various shows and things, so hopefully there will be a lot of familiar voices that will be cropping up in Invincible for many years to come — including, hopefully, eventually, Andy Lincoln and Danai Gurira."

Along with Yeun, who played zombie apocalypse survivor Glenn Rhee on six full seasons of The Walking Dead, Kirkman's Invincible features the voice talents of Walking Dead stars Payton (as Black Samson), Cohan (as War Woman), Coleman (as Martian Man), Cudlitz (as Red Rush), James (as Darkwing), Marquand (as The Immortal & Aquarius), and Martin-Green (as Green Ghost).

Kirkman previously told ComicBook of his hopes to cast more Walking Dead heavy-hitters in the animated series inspired by his Image Comics series, including Daryl Dixon actor Norman Reedus, Carol Peletier actor Melissa McBride, and Negan actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

"I hesitate to name names, just because I would eventually like to bring everyone," Kirkman said. "I can't think of an actor on The Walking Dead I wouldn't want to work with again. It's an amazing group of actors. Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan... there's not really anyone I wouldn't want to bring in."

While answering fan questions during his virtual Comic-Con Q&A, Kirkman said he "could not be more floored" with the response to Invincible. J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man), Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Zazie Beetz (Joker), and Mark Hamill (Star Wars) also lend their voices to the series that Kirkman said is "doing absolute gangbusters" on Amazon.

The release date for Invincible Season 2 is TBA. Follow the author @CameronBonomolo on Twitter for all things TWD.

'The Walking Dead' Season 11 Trailer: AMC's Flagship Series Shuffles Toward the Endgame

/FILM 26 July, 2021 - 08:10pm

Posted on Monday, July 26th, 2021 by Shania Russell

The beginning of the end is upon us. At this week’s Comic-Con at Home panel, fans finally got a sneak peek of what lies ahead for The Walking Dead, telling us a little more about how the series will end.

Check out the first trailer for the final season below.

It’s no surprise that in a series about an apocalyptic world, all our favorite characters are haunted by their pasts. Even as we look to their futures and wait to discover where this finale will take them, we can expect plenty of reflection along the way. The trailer opens with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), thinking back to “bad memories,” which never seem to leave anyone’s mind. As the survivors struggle to band together and salvage Alexandria, they return to conversations about the ghosts of their pasts and all they’ve lost.

We get a few glimpses at what the future holds and maybe most significantly, we learn of the Commonwealth. The end-of-trailer tease reveals that the armored troops appearing throughout the trailer are security for a settlement that’s seemingly abundant and thriving. Whether or not that’s true remains to be seen, but given the emphasis on the settlement and the frequent appearance of the troops, we can expect the Commonwealth to play an important role in at least the first eight episodes of the season.

Season 11 is expected to be the longest in the series, with 24 episodes overall split, between three eight-episode blocks. This season sees the return of the core cast, including Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lauren Cohan, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermit, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, and Khary Payton. Fear not, this won’t be the last we see of this beloved cast. While this may be the final season of The Walking Dead, the universe it spawned continues to expand.

The final season of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC on August 22 and a week early on AMC+.

Below is the official synopsis for Season 11 of The Walking Dead.

Previously on The Walking Dead, our survivors confronted past demons and combated new threats, with friendships and relationships suffering from the mounting collateral damage that is the apocalypse. Alexandria is severely compromised, left a former shell of the home it once was from the carnage and devastation left behind by the Whisperers.

Now all who live in Alexandria struggle to refortify it and feed its increasing number of residents, which include the survivors from the fall of the Kingdom and the burning of Hilltop; along with Maggie and her new group, the Wardens. Alexandria has more people than it can manage to feed and protect. Their situation is dire as tensions heat up over past events and self-preservation rises to the surface within the ravaged walls.

They must secure more food while they attempt to restore Alexandria before it collapses like countless other communities they have come across throughout the years. But where and how? More haggard and hungrier than ever before, they must dig deeper to find the effort and strength to safeguard the lives of their children, even if it means losing their own.

Meanwhile, unbeknownst to those at Alexandria, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Princess are still being held captive by mysterious soldiers who are members of a larger and unforthcoming group.
