It's been nearly a decade since Vin Diesel has portrayed Riddick, but the character is set to make a grand return very soon in the appropriately titled 'Riddick.' A new trailer for the film premiered at Comic-Con 2013 and it's everything you'd want from something like this: red band (NSFW!) and close to three minutes long.
This is the one many of us have been waiting for ever since Vin Diesel first teased to fans that he'd be making an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con 2013. 'Riddick,' the latest installment in the 'Chronicles of Riddick' movies, hit Hall H on Friday, July 19 with its leading man, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista and director David Twohy.
One of the big mysteries in the Marvel universe right now is how Vin Diesel fits into it. A few weeks ago, the 'Fast and Furious 7' actor let the world know that he was taking a meeting with Marvel Studios, but did not care to elaborate - thus spawning dozens of conspiracy theories. Vin has once again been kind enough to share a little about his connection with Marvel - and might have revealed which character he'll be playing in the near future.
Before his career hit a bump in the mid-00s, Vin Diesel was looking like the next big action star, his generation's answer to Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone. At the height of his power, he started talking up his dream project: the story of Hannibal of Carthage, the daring general who marched across the Alps to challenge the Roman Empire. After lying dormant for quite some time, it looks like this historical epic may have life in it yet.
As you may have read yesterday, interesting things are afoot at the Marvel offices, as the powers-that-be at the company seem interested in sitting down with Vin Diesel for some mysterious purpose. Let the wild speculation continue in our poll about which character in the Marvel universe Vin should play!
2013 is looking to be a good year for Vin Diesel. First, he got top billing in 'Fast and Furious 6,' which is shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of the year and in a few months, he'll return to the character who kickstarted his career, 'Riddick.' A new poster from the film has made its way online along with a special announcement from Mr. Diesel himself concerning Comic-Con 2013.
