San Diego Comic-Con brings rather exciting news for Rick and Morty fans. At Friday?s panel, Co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland teased fans about a guest star in third season of Adult Swim?s popular animated comedy series.
Although both Harmon and Roiland were pretty much tight lipped about revealing spoilers from new series, but they did hint their dream voiceover guests. Roiland indicated for him late David Bowie and Gary Coleman would have been ideal options, but Harmon had a much more plausible choice.
?I kind of want to meet Vin Diesel, and I kind of want to have a conversation with him,? Harmon said. ?He’s a big D&D fan, and I think he’d be great for the show.?
But Diesel seems to have a pretty busy schedule for next year with Fast 8 and XXX: Return of Xander Cage scheduled for 2017 release. It seems it might ultimately become rather difficult for Rick and Morty Season 3 to feature Vin Diesel as voice over. He is known for sonorous, baritone timbre and produced standout VO work in The Iron Giant and Guardians of the Galaxy.
In addition, fans also got their first look at Season 3 but instead of a trailer it was just animated storyboards. As ComicBook.com puts it: We see that Rick has transferred his mind into the body of an insect, which looks like a cockroach, and is in what appears to be an air vent. He uses the sharp claws at the end of one of his legs to saw off a portion of a grille. An angry rat, which is hungry for Rick and is on the other side of the grille, sticks its head through the opening. The ever-so-clever Rick was counting on that and triggers his trap, which decapitates the rat. More rats soon appear and Rick taunts them.
While the rats gnaw at the grille, Rick strips himself of the insect appendages and has the arms, legs and brain of the recently murdered rat attached to his now Twinkie-shaped body. Just as the rats come pouring through the opening they just made, Rick uses his new and improved body to slaughter them. You can check the new video below.
Despite several rumors release date for Season 3 remain unclear. There even are reports suggesting a slight delay in release date that could ultimately happen soon in July end or even August. However, Harmon had previously indicated otherwise and revealed there was no way possible to launch the series before August.
