The Walking Dead Season 10 is finally adding a comic character fans have been wanting to see for years. “We’ll be meeting the character Dante from the comics,” Showrunner Angela Kang recently told Entertainment Weekly. “He is this roguish, fast-talking, sometimes charming, sometimes annoying guy who can sometimes put his foot in his mouth, but is an interesting presence in the comics.”
Dante was first introduced in The Walking Dead Issue 131 following the post-All Out War time jump. He’s a loyal member of Hilltop who eventually had a brief relationship with Maggie. Since Lauren Cohan’s character is currently absent from the show, Dante’s character will come with his own unique story. “…in our world, the context is a little different, and he will play an important role in the story in Alexandria. So we’re excited about that,” Kang said.
While we can’t reveal who they have cast as Dante, there’s a good chance we’ll see him in next week’s Season 10 Comic Con trailer. Kang also hinted Dante might not be the only new character to cross over from the comics. “There will be some other characters we meet down the line,” Kang said, “but I don’t think I can quite talk about them yet. We’ll meet some really cool characters this year.” Could that mean the spunky spear-wielding character Princess? “I don’t know,” laughs Kang. “But we do love royalty on our show.”

Yay. A character, who, like many, amounted to nothing with that abrupt ending.
The princess would be the final nail in the coffin for this show….she is a pointless character whose only story arc was sleeping with mercer…
I love Princess. I will always defend her. But to be completely honest, literally anyone introduced past #125 has been rendered entirely pointless. What was Dante’s story arc, even? Harass Maggie then get kidnapped? That’s all he does.
I agree about the pointless characters….Magna and her group basically faded into the backround with no meaningful story arc…whats the point of putting Dante on the show if Maggie isnt on the show anymore…Ive read that this is michonnes last season…So no Rick, Carl, Maggie and Michonne and this whole show seems pointless anymore…My guess is that there are going to be 2 more seasons and instead of Carl reading to his kid to end the story it is going to be Daryl and Carol getting together and ending that way…As far as the Princess…shes not my cup of tea…I just have a feeling when she shows up on the show they are going to turn the volume up to 10 on her…I dont mind seeing characters from all types of backrounds…but when they shovel feed diversity and sjw characters just cause and with no story purpose it is obvious and cringe worthy…but I respect your opinion…
How about fixing Overkills game before all this fluff.
Listening to the critics is the last option any business should do. How can people not be ashamed of themselves for still supporting this franchise when they focus more on COMICS than VIDEO GAMES?
