Vin Diesel To Join The Marvel Universe?
As Disney and Marvel studios start to reveal their plan for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’re beginning to receive more and more news on where their grand undertaking is heading. Many actors have recently taken roles in upcoming Marvel films and today, we’re hearing of one more name that may be stepping into the vast universe that is only going to keep expanding.
Vin Diesel has revealed via his Facebook page that he has an upcoming meeting with Marvel but has no idea what it could be for.
“P.s. Marvel has requested a meeting… no idea what for… haha, you probably know better than me…” said the actor.
So, now the speculation begins as to which role Marvel wants Vin Diesel for. It could be one of the few remaining parts that are still open in Guardians of the Galaxy (Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Thanos). In fact, the actor has stated in the past that he wants to play a Marvel villain, so Thanos is a definite possibility. It’s also possible that Vin Diesel knows exactly who he’s going to play but just can’t reveal the information yet.
All that being said, for someone with a physicality and screen presence like Vin Diesel, I think it would be more beneficial to place him in a role where you can see him in person, not only hear his voice, which would rule out Guardians of the Galaxy. As for which role I think he’s being eyed for, well, I really can’t say. Your guess is as good as mine.
At any rate, Vin Diesel is a solid addition to the Marvel Universe and really, it was just a matter of time before they went after him. I’m excited for the studio to announce who he’ll be playing but in the meantime, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
