Vin Diesel is out promoting Fast and Furious 7 and that means a lot of people are asking a lot of question. Fortunately for fanboys, MTV asked just the right one.
After he campaigned via social media to land a Marvel role, Vin Diesel ended up as the voice of Groot in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. At the time, Diesel was quick to note that he and Marvel Studios had discussed other roles, but that his schedule didn't allow for them at the time. He then mentioned something down the lines, "a merging of brands", and hinted that he was in line to do some more work for Marvel Studios in the future.
Following the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, Diesel thanked the fans via Facebook, and continued to tease them with this photo:
Likely as a result of all this build up, MTV went right for the gold when they interviewed Diesel recently, asking him if he would be a part of the Marvel film, scheduled for July 2019:
“Wow. Right for the jugular." said, Diesel when asked about his potential role in Inhumans. "You see, Marvel? They ask me these questions!” The actor continued, “You know, I enjoyed the experience of playing Groot. A lot of it was the great cast, and the genius of James Gunn. But I also enjoyed, you know, entering into the Marvel world. And… Good things will come from that.”
Take that for what you will, but it certainly seems like Diesel will be appearing in another Marvel Studios' project down the line. While a lot of people already have him pegged for Black Bolt, I'm more of a mind to turn him lose as Gorgon and see what he can do.
What are your thoughts? Who would you like so see Vin Diesel portray when Inhumans hits theaters July 12, 2019?
