We’ve reported last week that Vin Diesel is acting all squirrely about something to do with Marvel and his potential involvement in future film adaptations. And he’s continued to deliver.
During the SDCC panel for Riddick, he let loose another cryptic comment with a little bit more substance (if you choose to look into it that way):
He was asked about rumors he’s been tapped to join the Marvel universe. “It’s the one thing I’m not supposed to talk about it,” he answered. But then he let loose that “there is some very big news coming at the end of this month. … Poor Marvel.”
One of the rumors that are floating about out there right now is that he may be playing the Vision in The Avengers 2, but nothing has been confirmed on that. There may be some more light shed on this during Marvel’s panel, but Diesel did say at the end of this month, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Also during the Riddick panel, they shared with fans a new red-band trailer for the film. We got a TV spot a few weeks ago, so here’s the trailer. Hit the jump to watch.
