You may have thought all of the new Maze Runner content for the year came out with The Death Cure, but fans will find one more surprise in store with the third film’s home release: a comic book detailing Thomas, Teresa, Newt, and Minho’s origin story in the WCKD world. MTV News has an exclusive look at the quad’s very first meeting in The Maze Runner Origins Comic Book.
Writer T.S. Nowlin — who also wrote the screenplays for all three Maze Runner films — was excited to dive beyond the story in the movies. “Since the Gladers arrived in the maze with their memories wiped, there’s a whole prequel component to the trilogy that we never got to explore in the films. And given that The Death Cure offers a conclusion to the Gladers’ journey and a farewell to so many beloved characters, we thought it would be fun to explore how some of those key characters and relationships began,” he said.
