We're just now starting to see the first flurry of special events, panel confirmations and guest appearances being set for San Diego Comic-Con 2013, and one fellow who has jumped out ahead of the pack is the galactic criminal Riddick -- also known as Vin Diesel.

Diesel's third go-round as Riddick, simply titled "Riddick," is coming out this September and Diesel posted at his Facebook page, "It's been over a decade since I've been to Comic-Con..." along with a pretty killer new poster designed especially for the massive fan culture event.

The new movie finds Diesel teaming once again with writer/director David Twohy, who also made "The Chronicles of Riddick" and the character's debut, "Pitch Black." The Riddick movies are nowhere near as huge as Diesel's other hit franchise, the "Fast and Furious" pictures, but within the halls of Comic-Con he'll surely be treated as a conquering hero.

San Diego Comic-Con is July 18 - 21 at the San Diego Convention Center.
