New Riddick Pic, Matthew Vaughn on Fantastic Four, and Iron Man 3 Concept Art


A trio of comic book news (“Riddick” is considered comic book-y, right?) for you before I close up shop for the weekend.

First up, here’s a new look at “Riddick” courtesy of Vin Diesel:

The sequel to “Pitch Black” and “The Chronicles of Riddick” is due out this September, so here’s hoping for a trailer by Summer.

Meanwhile, the comic book movie world is all afluttered over this news that “X-Men: First Class” director Matthew Vaughn has officially boarded Fox’s “Fantastic Four” reboot … as a producer. Josh Trank (“Chronicle”) is still attached to direct.

Mark Millar, comic book writer and Fox’s “consultant” extraordinaire, made the announcement:

Does it really matter if Vaughn “produces” the movie? Who knows. It’ll probably help the PR flacks sell the movie as being “from the director of ‘X-Men: First Class'”, I’m sure.

Meanwhile, CBM has landed what they say are leaked concept artwork for Marvel’s upcoming “Iron Man 3″, featuring Iron Man’s space suit and what they say is the Hulkbuster armor. So the Hulkbuster is a … turtle?

    Yes it matters if Vaughn is producing FF. I mean does it matter that Nolan is producing “Man of Steel” the answer of course is yes! LOL these guys are helping to steer things in the right direction.

    Love the Space armor, and the Hulkbuster armor has Hulks posture. And yes it is a turtle, as well it should be to handle blows from the hulk.

    Somebody really needs to reboot FF, the last two movies were HORRIBLE!!! The first thing they need to do is cast the darn thing right, b/c if I have to see another multi racial Sue Storm, or another midget Thing I’m going to hurl. Oh, and Vin reminds me of Conan at the end of Conan the Barbarian.
