Over the weekend, Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan spoke briefly about portraying the baseball bat-wielding villain Negan in The Walking Dead, and now the actor has shared shared his excitement for his upcoming role during a Supernatural convention in Pasadena, California.
“I’ve kind of become accustomed to playing sort of the good guy,” states Morgan (via Comic Book). “You know, maybe a rough exterior with a heart of gold in there somewhere. I think the challenge for me in this role is going to be: Is there any heart in Negan? And for me, I look at that as a challenge as an actor and that’s the kind of thing I embrace and really look forward to. I’m super-excited about it. It’s going to be cool. I promise you, it will be something different than what you’ve seen me do.”

It may also be tough to watch once Negan starts swinging Lucille…

We all have our pick for the world.s worst movie, and it.s something no one should be afraid to admit. When it comes to Jackie Earle Haley.s filmography though, even the veteran actor can admit that one of his own films deserves that dubious distinction. If you.re one of the many people who hate The Bad News Bears Go To Japan, then you can add Haley himself to your ranks. During an Ama conducted on Reddit earlier today, Haley waxed nostalgic on many of the experiences he.s had in his varied film career. And somewhere, in-between awesome stories on how intense an experience Watchmen was to film, and how his own directorial debut, Criminal Activities, was a joy to make, he found time to set the record straight that even he didn.t respond well to the third and final installment in the little league »

Now that Abraham, Rosita, Father Gabriel and co. have been established as regulars in The Walking Dead TV universe, one comic-book character in particular has moved up the "most-anticipated newcomer" list. His name? Negan.
Introduced in issue #100 of The Walking Dead comics, Negan made a brutal entrance in Robert Kirkman's series and went on to become the second major antagonist for Rick's group since The Governor. Armed with a barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat, affectionately nicknamed Lucille, he's the leader of a group known as The Saviors, and one dangerous villain.
And now we know who'll be playing him on TV. Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy and Watchmen actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan is stepping into the role just in time for The Walking Dead season six finale, according to the IMDb. »
According to reports, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played anti-hero the 'Comedian' in director Zack Snyder's "Watchmen", and will be seen as the father of 'Bruce Wayne' in Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", has been cast as a main villain in AMC's "The Walking Dead":
"...Morgan will play the character 'Negan', debuting in the Season 6 finale episode, to be directed by Greg Nicotero, as the violent leader of a group known as the 'Saviors' that uses force and intimidation to subjugate other communities — including 'Alexandria'..."
"There are astonishingly brilliant and thrilling characters that I am convinced we would be idiots not to meet in our journey," said series star Andrew Lincoln aka 'Rick Grimes'. "I would be very surprised if we don't see 'Negan' on the horizon..."
"What struck me, that I've always been excited about, is, we're into the sixth season of this show and »

Fans of The Walking Dead will either now be going punching the air with a hiss filled “Yes!” or they’ll be looking rather glum whilst whispering “No!” as the news has just broke that the role of one of The Walking Dead’s most nastiest piece’s of work has now been cast: gripping the barb wire wrapped baseball bat is none other than Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
You will no doubt know the name Jeffrey Dean Morgan from The Watchmen movie – directed by Zack Snyder – where he played the role of the “superhero” (used extremely loosely) known as The Comedian; others may recognise him from his recurring roles in both Supernatural and Grey’s Anatomy.
For those of you not aware of the character of Negan, this brute of a foul-mouthed leader has his own group of survivors that follow his every word out of fear. Negan’s weapon »

Local communities are forced to comply with Negan's demands for food and other resources, or risk the wrath of his swing.
Negan first appeared in issue #100, making an immediate impact on readers' psyches with his horrifying slaying of a key character, leading to the action-packed events »

It finally happened! The Walking Dead has cast Negan. The iconic villain role will be played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a guest star in the The Walking Dead Season 6 finale. He will then become a series regular in The Walking Dead Season 7. The character was first introduced in Robert Kirkman's comic book upon which the AMC series is based. He has a long and storied history in the pages of the comic. And he quickly became a fan favorite, one that audiences have been clamoring for ever since the show was launched in 2010.
The casting search for Negan was an extensive one. And last week, it was believed that Garret Dillahunt had walked away with the role. Though, that actor may still be involved with the series somehow. Negan will be the show's next major villain. And he is known as an F-bomb dropping, dastardly presence. Warning. There »
Following an extensive casting search, Morgan has scored the iconic role, a frequently swearing character who is considered the darkest and most evil of Robert Kirkman's comic series to date.
Morgan's character is first expected to arrive in the sixth season finale and is the violent leader of a group known as The Saviors who use force and intimidation to subjugate other communities.
Morgan reportedly beat out the likes of Timothy Olyphant, Matt Dillon and Garret Dillahunt for the role and will first join the series as a guest star before being promoted to series regular for season seven. Filming on the sixth season finale begins this week in Atlanta.
In the comics Negan has a baseball bat covered in barbed wire named 'Lucille' »

Spoiler warning: This article contains plot details from “The Walking Dead” comic books.
Negan is one of the comic book series’ biggest baddies — the leader of the Saviors, a ruthless group that demands food and supplies from other communities in “exchange” for protection from the walkers.
He’s expected to make his grand debut at the end of the show’s current sixth season, possibly in the finale, and return in season seven.
In Robert Kirkman’s comics, Negan murders Glenn (Steven Yeun) with a barb-wired baseball bat called Lucille, leading fans of the hit AMC zombie drama to believe that Glenn is not dead … yet. However, Yeun’s name is no longer part of the show’s opening credits.

Villordsutch Reviews Dan Dare – The 2000Ad Years – Vol.1…
Dan Dare is a British icon. He was created by Frank Hampson in 1950, and first appeared in the Eagle comic where he was an instant hit with the British public. Almost a decade after the original series had ended, Dan Dare was resurrected in the pages of a brand new sci-fi comic for boys – 2000 Ad!
Waking from suspended animation after two hundred years, Dan Dare faced an unfamiliar universe, filled with terrible new threats, but also included all too familiar ones, such as his old nemesis, The Mekon!
The first volume of this punk-fuelled space opera features stories from Pat Mills (Nemesis the Warlock), Steve Moore (Doctor Who) and Gerry Finley-Day (Rogue Trooper) with art by Massimo Belardinelli (Sláine) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen).
I’ve been a fan of Dan Dare for a long while. It’s bizarre really, the idea of »
When the rumour that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder was in talks with HBO (the cable network responsible for everything from The Wire to True Detective) to bring Watchmen to the small screen, it was hard to believe. The 2009 movie was after all very well-received and a great adaptation of

Patrick Wilson has starred in such big-budget Hollywood movies as "The Alamo," "The Phantom of the Opera" and Zack Snyder's "Watchmen," but his latest film -- writer/director S. Craig Zahler's bleak horror-Western "Bone Tomahawk" -- wasn't exactly flush with money. Which, as far as Wilson is concerned, actually helped his performance as Arthur O'Dwyer, a young, crutches-saddled frontier man who goes on a mission to save his wife from a tribe of cannibalistic Native Americans: "I think this might have been a different movie...I felt this way actually about 'Hard Candy,' too, years ago -- you probably would have had a different performance, certainly in some takes, if the movie had been shot over three or four months," Wilson told me while promoting the film, which also stars Kurt Russell, Matthew Fox and Richard Jenkins. See below for more highlights from our conversation, including why »

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was first announced, fans have wondered exactly how Bruce Wayne will be able to win in a fight against Kal-El. Well, a recently leaked Lego set revealed exactly how that will happen. Spoiler Alert! Batman has a gun that's equipped with Kryptonite bullets! But, according to Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck's Dark Knight is packing something even more power than a weapon.
Having directed Man of Steel, and with both Justice League movies on the horizon, it's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder knows his way around the DC Comics universe. And he has a deep understanding of what makes Batman tick. He's finally weighed in on the Bruce vs Kal-El debate. And as he sees it, the Dark Knight has one clear advantage over the Man of Steel.
Samuel Brace on the DC Bad Movie Myth…
There is a lie that is being perpetuated, a myth if you will, a myth tinged with vitriol that DC makes bad movies, exclusively bad movies, and that the new DC Extended Universe needs to save both them and their reputation. Time and time again it is being said that Batman v Superman Needs to be great because of the films that have come before it, that this is almost a last chance saloon for Batman and crew. This quite frankly makes no sense. Batman v Superman needs to be great — whatever you decide that means — because it needs to compete with a market that is saturated by competitors. That’s just how it is. It has nothing to do with a history of bad content. When it comes to this particular falsehood that has been created, the proof is in the pudding. »
