Some rivalries are just natural. Snakes and mongoose, for example, seem destined to war with each other forever. Whales and giant squids should probably be on that list, too. Then there's fictional characters. Whether they be as prominent as Batman and Superman, or as obscure as Sasquatch and Lockjaw, fan will postulate battle plans, tactics and deus ex machina scenarios until a victor emerges.
That desire to know who would win in a fight against who has now hit AMC's "The Walking Dead," specifically for the series' two most prominent antagonists: Negan and The Governor. Entertainment Weekly caught up with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan in the show, to see who he thinks would win in a tussle between the self-appointed tyrant and the baseball-wielding sociopath.
"It's not even close," said Morgan. "I mean, I love David Morrissey, but he wouldn't stand a chance. Wouldn't stand a chance. I'd put Negan up against anybody. He's super smart and there's no filter, no fear. The Governor was a little bit wack. Negan's got it together. It wouldn't even be close. And I'm sorry, 'cause I really love David. He's awesome. I worked with him for a year and there's just not a better guy. But Negan versus the Governor wouldn't be close."
As of right now, Morrissey has yet to chime in with his take on the proposed battle, but why wait for him when you can start drawing up your fight scenarios?
The seventh season of "The Walking Dead" premieres October 23, 2016 on AMC.
