Vin Diesel To Join The Marvel Universe?

Vin Diesel Fast and Furious 6 driving jpg 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.

    Vin Diesel as “The Ghost Rider.” This comic book character has way more potential then that god awful Nicholas Cage version. I can see Vin Diesel’s version to be a lot darker and his character more gray. The only thing good about the Cage movie is that it should mean that the actor won’t be playing any other Marvel characters anytime soon.

    He could be the Juggernaut. That fits. He’s big, muscular, and dumb.

      He’s not exactly dumb. Via EduInReview “(Vin Diesel) continued to act throughout his childhood and into his teenage years. After high school, he attended Hunter College, where he studied creative writing. As a result of his studies, he began to write screen plays and earned acclaim for his short film,Multi-Facial, in the early 1990s.”
      His creative output is significantly large for someone you consider “dumb.” The only item available for purchase at this time is his Dungeons and Dragons Retrospective. http://www.amazon.com/30-Years-Adventure-Dungeons-Dragons/dp/0786934980
      You might want to reconsider confusing an actor’s intelligence with the characters he plays on screen.

    Cripes, it’s just a meeting. Author talks like it’s a done deal, written in stone. Hype much?

    Isn’t it obvious? He’s playing Moondragon.

  • Coqui1985

    Draxx the destroyer, He always looked very similar to Riddick…. Plus…he was evil at one time…

  • Smartguy

    It’s going to be The Absorbing Man (Crusher Creel)

    • ratnok

      Good call! He wants to be a villain anyway!

  • Eric

    Luke Cage. He’d be great.

    • ratnok

      No. Absolutely no. He looks nothing like him, and his personality/acting doesn’t fit Luke Cage.

      Drax the Destroyer- now that should have been him.

  • herpderp

    I’d really love to see him as Moon Knight
