This version of the poster uses all of the same colors as the official season seven key art, but uses the Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe tagline said by Negan.This one was likely passed on because it's a little more dark with the dripping blood. It's also tough to tell that this is Jeffrey Dean Morgan since he's heavily shadowed here. And You Are It are some of the final words Negan says before delivering his death blows to Abraham. The decision of this poster is clever. As the reader's eye moves down past the words, it lands on the skull, an ominous reminder of the death to come after those words are uttered. As your eyes move down farther, you see Negan's head, the person responsible for that death.It's tough to make out whether or not Rick or, perhaps, Abraham (who Negan decides to kill) is the person highlighted underneath the skull's nose. It's a bit tough to tell, but would have been a brilliant way to tease the impending character death. However, it also may have revealed a bit too much. Again, this design was probably considered a bit too dark and a little scary.This design may have been too simple and generic. While Lucille means something to fans of the comic and show, if AMC's goal was to draw in other viewers who may have dropped off of the show a few seasons back or new fans, this poster likely wouldn't have done much to push the needle.This one is a little more specific than the last. The cool bit to see here is that this poster design doesn't have a premiere date on it, yet. So you get to see what the key art looks like in its early design stages.Another early design showed Negan on top of the world, in control of everything. The image of Negan on top of the world doubles for for a spot of blood, teasing the eventual beating the character doled out, taking the lives of both Abraham and Glenn.You can also notice a reference to Negan's satellite station and his home, the Sanctuary, on the droplet. On the season six finale, and throughout some of season seven, Negan and his Savior group really did feel like they were inescapable.This design would have used a different version of The Walking Dead logo.Though at first glance it just looks like 11 crows sitting on a wire, it's a dark parallel to the season six finale when you consider that each bird represents one of the survivors in Negan's lineup. The wire they're all sitting on is the barbed wire wrapped around Negan's beloved bat, Lucille. As for that crow flying away? That's likely representing the one life Negan was supposed to take until he wound up killing more than one person.TWD returns from its winter hiatus on February 20, 2022 and premiere a week earlier on AMC+.
