After months and months of The Walking Dead teasing his onscreen arrival in the season 6 finale, and the casting of Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the role, our very first look at Negan in the AMC series has arrived, and it’s just as bone-chilling as you might expect. Spoiler alert: it also gives us our first look at a certain deadly, barbed wire baseball bat too.
While we still have yet to see an actual trailer for the season finale next Sunday, an international trailer for the episode apparently already debuted around the world in certain markets, and thanks to the internet, that trailer has finally surfaced online here as well.
Check out the small teaser for the trailer below, and prepare to get chills when you finally here Morgan speak those fateful words…
What I love about this trailer, is that it gives an equal amount of screen time to both Negan and Lucille, teasing the character and his deadly trademark weapon just perfectly enough. Judging by the way its shot as well, from the POV of a currently unknown character (read our thoughts on who that could be here), it looks like his introduction might be just as impactful as it was in the comics as well.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple recently teased how the series would handle Negan’s controversial introduction, how it might differ from the comics and how it might not. In case you were wondering about Morgan’s passion for the role as well, check out what he had to say about the opporunity at the last Supernatural PasCon in Pasadena, CA:
“When my agent/manager called they said, ‘You’ve been offered this thing on The Walking Dead…it’s to play this big bad.’ At the time, they didn’t know the character’s name, because I think it was supposed to be a secret. And I’m like, ‘Is it f–king Negan?’ And they’re like, ‘I don’t know, we’re going to have to call you back, hold on a second.’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s f–king Negan. And I’m f–king doing it.’ “
Indeed, it was Negan, and he’s here. He’s finally here.
The Walking Dead airs every Sunday night on AMC.
