AMC is NOT happy about the spoiler...
UPDATE: AMC has released the following statement about the major spoiler that can be found further down the page.
"The post on the AMC store was completely unauthorized. The matter is currently under investigation."
ORIGINAL: Several updates have been released in the last twenty-four hours or so in regards to The Walking Dead. First off, creator Robert Kirkman told MTV News the reason that David Morrissey was cast as The Governor in season three.
"More than any other actor, David Morrissey came in and wanted to embrace everything that there is to the Governor. He knew this is a complicated character, and he knew this was a character that people are going to hate to love," Kirkman said. "He recognized that this character is a villain. A lot of people came in and were like, 'But he's a good guy inside, right?' They want that nuance, and that's definitely important. We definitely have that. The Governor isn't a one-note character; there are a lot of layers to that onion. But this is a sadistic guy. David Morrissey, more than any other actor, really wanted to sink his teeth into that role. He wants to embrace everything there is about the Governor."
Morrisey beat out Oscar nominee John Hawkes (Winter's Bone) for the role. Hawkes talked about the role, saying, "They were kind enough to show interest. It just felt like it wasn't right for me. I think they're going to find someone who will do a better job than I would have, and I think they'll be happy in the end."
PLEASE NOTE: Below is a major spoiler alert.
Finally, an ad for The Walking Dead Season Two's limited edition Blu-Ray set has the following description, indicating that Jon Bernthal (Shane) is likely leaving the show:
"This special limited edition Blu-Ray includes all 13 episodes on 4 discs, including bonus features such as: the making of the barn, an extended zombie gut scene, Shane's last episode, full Comic Con coverage with panel, comic book vs episode comparison, and more!"
