First Look At ‘The Walking Dead’s’ Kingdom Leader Ezekiel
‘The Walking Dead’ made lot’s of news this weekend at SDCC. Yesterday they debuted the new trailer for Season 7 and the whole cast was in attendance. Yesterday also saw the first picture of the Kingdom Leader Ezekiel.
Khary Payton (Teen Titans, General Hospital) has been cast in the role of Ezekiel, the leader of a new community of survivors that are poised to be introduced in season seven of the zombie drama, producers announced Friday at Comic-Con. The first look at Ezekiel and his pet tiger, Shiva was also seen in the Season 7 trailer yesterday.
The introduction of the Kingdom and Negan effectively set the stage for season seven to explore the stunning five-issue Walking Dead comics arc called “All Out War,” which sees multiple communities unite in a bid to defeat the sociopath. As for if Ezekiel’s tiger, Shiva, will be brought to life on the AMC drama, exec producer Greg Nicotero told THR in April that those conversations were already underway. “But if I were just watching the show, I’d want to see that tiger,” he said. “I’m very confident in the path that we’ve chosen in terms of how we’re going to execute that, but I don’t want to get into it too much.”
