While there have been a lot of “The Walking Dead” season 7 spoilers, Robert Kirkman hinted that he has no plan of making the show as predictable as “Game of Thrones.” Even though he did not say those words exactly, he shared that he is disappointed that the “Game of Thrones” writer will even collaborate with the TV showrunners for the plot.
Comic-book writer and creator/executive producer of “The Walking Dead” once again aired his opinion regarding the fan’s outrage on last season’s cliffhanger finale. For him, the unpredictability of who died up until now is making him happy.
It can be remembered that “The Walking Dead” season 6 cliffhanger finale resulted to a lot of fan’s fury when a character was shown at the end of Negan’s fury and yet it remains unclear who this unlucky character is and what his fate is.
Many knew that Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, will be initiating deaths to main characters but the cliffhanger left them wondering who died and will die. There are those that speculated that Negan’s victim will be different from the one in the comic book, adding to the confusion over the cliffhanger.
“I was very flattered by all of the response that we got,” Robert Kirkman shared with Slash Film. “It shows that people are still invested. I think the negativity surrounding that was unfortunate but I think people have been watching the show for six years and they’re entitled to their opinion.”
He avoided to spill some beans for “The Walking Dead” season 7, but said that he is happy with the turn of events in the series and that the next season “going to be cool.”
He is no George R.R. Martin after all. Robert Kirkman throws a jab against at the writer in an interview with Rolling Stones for even collaborating with the show runners.
Asked if he will be telling TV writers his plans for the comic books, he said that he will never do it, unlike what the “Game of Thrones” writer did.
“I would never do that,” he told. “That’s the one thing I’m disappointed in George R.R. Martin for doing. He should have just been like, F*** you. You make it up now; I’ll get to mine when I’m ready.”
