Yes, Rick has blood on his face and yes Negan’s bat is super bloody. Also, doesn’t Josh look a lot like Jeffrey Dean Morgan? But I digress, Chris Hardwick, who moderated the panel at the con, prodded executive producer Scott Gimple until he confirmed that we will know who dies in the first hour.

We got a teaser trailer of the newest Marvel series, which will glowing fist punch its way onto Netflix on March 17th, 2017 as well as a huge casting announcement when audiences were treated to the news that Sigourney Weaver will be the main villain in The Defenders series.
