Watch Michonne slice into zombies in 1st Walking Dead S3 footage

The Walking Dead's third season is definitely shaping up to be a big one. There's a new location in the prison, a new villain in the form of the Governor and, most importantly for some fans, there's Michonne, the katana-wielding woman who's long been a favorite of comics readers. We've seen her look, and now we get to see her skills.

We've been waiting for this moment ever since we learned shortly after the season-two finale that actress Danai Gurira had been cast in the iconic role. The footage debuted last night during a special episode of the Walking Dead companion series Talking Dead, and while it may be short, it's definitely sweet.

Watch as Michonne enters a ransacked store and makes quick work of a trio of walkers.

Pretty badass, right? And as if that weren't enough, we've also got a behind-the-scenes look at the third season featuring several members of the cast. Check it out:

The Walking Dead returns to AMC in the fall. Now that you've seen her swing that blade, do you think they got Michonne right?
