The 'Black Panther' Revolution

Norman Jean Roy for Rolling Stone

Two years ago, Chadwick Boseman was in a movie called Gods of Egypt. It was not a very good movie. But in addition to its not-goodness, it also became infamous for whitewashing – casting, as ancient African deities, a white guy from Scotland, a white guy from Denmark and at least seven white people from Australia. Boseman, the sole black lead, played Thoth, the Egyptian god of wisdom and inventor of mathematics. Before the movie came out, an interviewer asked him about the criticism, and

The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan: EP 'Incredibly Hopeful' She'll Re-Sign
All together now: Whew!

Even before The Walking Dead struck out Glenn in the Season 7 premiere, his wife Maggie had been transforming from a fearless fighter into a formidable leader. And now that she’s removed weaselly Gregory from his throne at The Hilltop, there couldn’t be a worse time for the show to lose her portrayer Lauren Cohan. Luckily, although the actress is entertaining other offers for when her contract expires at the end of the current Season 8, showrunner Scott Gimple tells TVLine, “I’m incredibly hopeful about” a new deal being struck.

"The Walking Dead: The Last Stand"

Sneak Peek more new footage, plus images from "The Walking Dead" mid-season premiere episode "The Last Stand", airing February 25, 2018 on AMC:

"...all out war has had a devastating impact on every person involved.

"The communities themselves are fractured. 'Alexandria' has been destroyed, the 'Hilltop' finds themselves pinned...

"...and the 'Kingdom' is shattered — half of them dead, the other half controlled by the 'Saviors'.

"At the very center — 'Rick', having been distracted by the conflict, has just returned home to learn that 'Carl', who heroically shepherded the 'Alexandrians' to safety during an attack by 'Negan' has been bitten by a 'walker'.

"Once his sole motivation in this otherwise stark existence, Rick is forced to deal with this reality. Carl has always been a beacon of hope, a symbol for the remaining thread of humanity...

"...lessons that the survivors around him would be wise to take with them as this war surges onward.

Walking Dead: The Saviors Escape in New Midseason Premiere Clip

The Walking Dead‘s brand new teaser trailer unveils the Saviors’ escape plan from a zombie-surrounded Sanctuary. While the first half of the season ended on a more personal note with Rick and Michonne trying to wrap their heads around Carl’s imminent death, there is a bigger narrative that the last several episodes for this season’s AMC hit show needs to address, and that is the simmering fight between the Saviors and Alexandrians.

Michonne Takes Out Some Walkers In New Walking Dead Season 8B Clip

With the midseason premiere of The Walking Dead quickly approaching, AMC is ramping up the promotion and after giving us a sneak peek of the episode just earlier this week, we now have another one. Though brief and not terribly revealing, we do get a look at Danai Gurira’s Michonne acting her usual badass self as she slices up some walkers at the entry of Alexandria.

Of course, what fans are no doubt most curious to see when it comes to this particular character is how she’s going to deal with the impending death of one Carl Grimes. We’ve already heard from the actress that she’s “absolutely devastated” by it and in a recent interview, she explained a bit more, saying:

“I got a little depressed for a while. Straight up. You’re in the story. You’re in it, and you’re also in a family.

Fans Can't Contain Their Love For Black Panther's Biggest Badass: Okoye

The following contains spoilers for Black Panther. Look, we're sorry to King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), we really are . . . but there is one character who reigns supreme in Black Panther, and she's not interested in sitting on the throne of Wakanda. Her name is General Okoye, and she's here to throw wigs, kick ass, and take names. Played by The Walking Dead fan-favorite Danai Gurira, Okoye is absolutely magnetic throughout the film. Whether she's making professional hitmen look like toddlers on the playground, causing fierce war rhinos - yep, they're a thing - to halt dead in their tracks, or verbally roasting her own ex-lover on the battlefield, Okoye is impossible to tear your eyes away from during the movie. As head of the Dora Milaje (an elite all-women squad of royal Wakandan bodyguards), Okoye has plenty of opportunities to showcase her fighting prowess throughout the movie.

New Walking Dead Posters Suggest It’s Time To Kill Negan

Subtlety and The Walking Dead aren’t often bedfellows. Exhibit A: these brand new posters for the second half of season 8, one of which references Rick Grimes’ promise to kill Negan that he made the day the pair met. This was way back at the end of season 6, which was nearly two years ago. The one poster appears to be hinting that Rick should shit or get off the pot in regards to the whole Negan thing, while the other flips the table, showing Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s big bad with the message “Kill Rick” on it.

Right now, Grimes’ aforementioned promise seems to be in doubt. The latest trailer sees Carl attempting to convince Rick that if he kills Negan he’ll merely be perpetuating the cycle of brutality and viciousness that’s gradually consuming the world and directly causing people like Negan to flourish. It’s a decent argument,

Basically None of the Stars Are Ok With Carl's Death on The Walking Dead

Back in December 2017, fans of The Walking Dead were collectively shaken when an unexpected character wound up on the chopping block.

Morgan Faces Saviors And Walkers In The Walking Dead Midseason Premiere Clip

It’s been a long couple of months for The Walking Dead fans, as they’ve been patiently awaiting the return of the hit AMC zombie drama. After all, the midseason finale ended on a nail-biting cliffhanger when Carl Grimes was revealed to have been bitten by a walker.

Though we still haven’t seen any footage that sheds light on his imminent demise, one new clip from the upcoming midseason premiere – titled “Honor” – has arrived online today and features a tense scene, as Morgan Jones (Lennie James) stakes out some Saviors. Things then get even more problematic as he finds himself cornered by zombies, yet the old survivor, who’s faced much worse than this, is able to use his smarts to turn the situation to his advantage.

Fans will know that Morgan’s days on The Walking Dead are numbered, but not because he’s set to die.

We Have a Theory About Who Might Die Next on The Walking Dead, and It's Not Good News

The Walking Dead is notorious for killing off beloved characters when your heart least expects it. Case in point: the recent Winter season finale which revealed Carl (Chandler Riggs) has taken a nasty bite to the stomach and will soon meet his doom when the show returns on Feb. 25. As if that fatal blow wasn't enough for us, we now have reason to believe there's another tear-inducing death coming our way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lauren Cohan, who has portrayed Maggie Greene on the AMC series since 2011, is "actively looking for her next role." Sources told the publication that the All Eyez On Me actress has been in months-long negotiations with the network and "her agents are not happy with the offers that have been on the table." Fortunately for Cohan, she's in high demand for the 2018 pilot season. While members of her camp are reportedly "frustrated by AMC's lowball offers,

We Haven’t Seen The Last Of Rick And Morgan On The Walking Dead

We haven’t seen the last of Rick Grimes and Morgan Jones.

At least, that’s according to Andrew Lincoln, who recently hinted at a possible reunion between the two seasoned survivors beyond The Walking Dead season 8.

Ahead of the show’s mid-season premiere next Sunday, Lincoln, who plays the gun-toting Rick Grimes on AMC’s undead juggernaut, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the back-to-back departures of Chandler Riggs (Carl) and Lennie James (Morgan), who have been involved in The Walking Dead ever since its humble debut eight years ago.

The former is set to be killed off in “Honor,” the super-sized (and mid-season!) premiere that is poised to get the ball rolling on February 25th, before Lennie James’ fan-favorite becomes the bridge that unites The Walking Dead with its sibling series, Fear The Walking Dead.

In doing so, he’ll make history, and it’s fair to say that

Lennie James Vows To Expand On Morgan’s Story In Fear The Walking Dead

On April 15th, two worlds collide.

It’s a crossover event that has been long on the cards, as AMC prepares to ship Morgan Jones (Lennie James) over to its undead companion series, Fear The Walking Dead, in time for its fourth season.

Details are few and far between, particularly as AMC currently has all hands at the pump in anticipation of The Walking Dead‘s mid-season premiere, “Honor,” which is due to hit screens on February 25th. But when pressed about Morgan’s journey over to Ftwd, Lennie James warned viewers that not everything is as it seems, which isn’t all that surprising now that The Walking Dead is beginning to toy around with flash-forwards and other novel narrative techniques.

It’s very, very tricky and it’s the question that everybody’s asking me and it was the question that, obviously, I had when it was all proposed to me.

The Walking Dead’s First “Fully Nude” Zombie To Feature In Season 8B

The Walking Dead has never skimped on its putrid, at-times revolting zombies.

They rule the world of AMC’s apocalyptic, after all, and the network’s effects team consistently draws praise for its incredible prosthetics, leading to some truly unforgettable walkers – be it Michonne’s mouthless pets or the creepy gas mask-wearing zombie in The Walking Dead season 3. But it turns out AMC plans to break new ground with the show’s eighth season.

Asked if the remainder of season 8 will signal any firsts for The Walking Dead, long-time producer Greg Nicotero told Entertainment Weekly that, yes, viewers can expect to clock eyes on the show’s “first fully nude walker.”

There’s an episode where we did our first fully nude walker. We’ve never done that before. I think the second half of the season, there’s much less talking about what’s going on. Clearly, the balance has shifted.
