Forget fangs! In the upcoming xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Nina Dobrev sports a new signature accessory: glasses.

The Vampire Diaries alum took to Twitter earlier today (July 18) to give fans a preview of her character in the Vin Diesel vehicle. The short teaser — which was released in anticipation of the full trailer tomorrow — shows Dobrev’s character Becky geeking over Diesel’s Xander Cage.

 

 

“Xander Cage,” says Dobrev’s suited-up Becky in the teaser. “This is crazy.”

Though Becky doesn’t seem to have much of anything in common with Dobrev’s former character, Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries, she does appear to have some similarities with another CW heroine: Arrow’s Felicity. But we’ll have to wait until the movie is released to see how much that comparison actually pans out!

The teaser comes on the heels of a snippet released by Diesel himself last night that shows the actor back in form as Cage.

“It feels good to be back,” says Cage half way through the clip shared by Diesel.

A sequel to the 2002 movie, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage finds former extreme sports athlete-turned-spy Xander Cage returning to the fray to take on a new assignment.

In addition to Dobrev, the film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, and Ruby Rose.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is set to hit theaters in 2017.
