Strange how so many horror-themed film and TV properties are getting promotion during the middle of December. Not only do we have the first trailer for the Hellboy reboot (See it here) and Syfy renewing their Van Helsing show (See it here), but now we have the first poster for the second-half of season 9 of The Walking Dead. In particular, the poster focuses in on the soon-to-be-introduced villain Alpha (Played by Oscar-nominated actress Samantha Morton).
Alpha is the leader of the Whisperers, a group of marauders who don the skins of the dead in order to move among the zombie herds undetected. They are a fan favorite from the original comics and were briefly introduced in B plot points throughout the first half of season 9, culminating in their official debut in the midseason finale. The show won’t return to AMC until February 10th of next year, but for now check out the new season 9B poster below:
