Vin Diesel Offers Marvel Movie Tease(s)
On his Facebook page, the "Fast & Furious" star shares pic from a meeting, but were multiple clues to a future role hidden inside?
Vin Diesel just can't help himself.
A couple of weeks after teasing Facebook fans by announcing that "Marvel has requested a meeting … no idea what for … haha, you probably know better than me," the Fast & Furious and Riddick star is at it again, sharing a picture from the Marvel offices and telling fans "Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed …"
This was accompanied by an image of Diesel in front of a reproduction of the cover to Avengers #2 by Jack Kirby. A coincidence or deliberate tease? And if it's the latter, what to make of the fact that that particular cover features the tagline "See The New GIANT-MAN!"?
Of course, Diesel may be offering another hint as to his potential Marvel role, adding "Thanks to Our page, for pushing to make it happen … you know I get tunnel vision with my work … and after that meeting today … wow!" One particular word stood out for longtime Marvel fans, prompting speculation that he might be taking on the role of superheroic android The Vision in Joss Whedon's next Marvel movie.
Personally, I think any Avengers talk is a misdirect at this point. For me, Diesel is perfect for one role at Marvel Studios above all others, and if Comic-Con this month passes without an announcement that he'll be voicing Rocket Raccoon in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy movie, I feel as if everyone should mourn a tragically missed opportunity.
