Your daily dose of Marvel Mutant Mayhem isn’t really much as far as mayhem goes, but if you’re a big fan of body paint then this one is going to go over well.

Briefly: We haven’t even seen Red 2, but Summit is confident enough in the film that writers Jon and Erich Hoeber have been signed to write a third. The brothers wrote the first two films, so they’re as familiar as it is possible to be with the material. Not a bad outcome for the original film based on the comic by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner that focused on aging black ops characters being drawn back into action.
Red 2, directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), opens on July 19, at which point we’ll see if augmenting the original cast (Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker) with Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones worked out. Based on the fact that test screenings have led to Summit hiring writers for a third, perhaps it’s all coming together a bit better than the first film did.
There’s no cast in place for a third Red film at this point, but if things turn out well for the second film when it hits this summer, production on the third could kick off as early as January 2014. [THR]

Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four hasn’t announced any stars just yet, but we got some tantalizing hints a couple weeks back when Michael B. Jordan and Allison Williams were rumored for major roles. The reports got a lot of buzz, most of it good — but predictably, there were a few folks unhappy with the fact that Jordan is black, whereas Johnny Storm has traditionally been portrayed as white.
While Jordan won’t confirm his casting right now, he was happy to address some of the negative feedback he’s gotten. Put simply, he doesn’t see why his race should be a problem: “It’s 2013.” Hit the jump to read the rest of his comments.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Joss Whedon is creating some real problems for his heroes in The Avengers 2. The writer/director recently said, yes, Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch will be in the film, but they won’t be there to help the team. “I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier,” the director said.
He also said, despite rumors to the contrary, Iron Man will be back for the 2015 sequel and that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will “throw something in that foreshadows [or] echoes” events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lots of Joss quotes today. Read them all below. Read More »
