The Walking Dead: "One of the Greatest Villains Ever Created in TV" - EP Teases Negan
Negan has been teased for quite some time, with plenty of excitement surrounding his arrival (and a few nerves). Now, executive producer David Alpert has joined the conversation, claiming Negan is "One of the greatest villains ever created in TV.
"It's the greatest comic book villain I've ever read. He's amazing, he's terrifying, he's funny, he's charming, and the reason why I think he's so terrifying is he makes a certain amount of sense. Even though he does horrible, horrible horrific things, there's a certain logic - a barbaric logic, but a logic - to it.
"I think it's not just the horrible things he does, it's the appeal of that logic. It takes a little while to wrap your head around it." Alpert spoke to IGN on the character, and is adamant that this man is as impressive as he is frightening.
"This guy's built something. He's built something huge, and it's really impressive what he's been able to build. He's done something way beyond what the Governor has done, and he's not hiding behind the niceties the way the Governor was. He's not pretending to be something that he's not. He's a fully self-actualized human, it's just not necessarily in a good way."
