Just like many actors nowadays, Vin Diesel also likes to resort to the old Facebook and Twitter to post news bulletins to his fans. Whilst some of these reports are solid details relating to upcoming films such as the Fast and Furious and Riddick sequels others are just plain arcane.
An example of the latter is a recent post the actor made confirming how well a recent meeting with Marvel Studios went:
“Marvel meeting today… Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed… P.S. 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!”
Reading more than just between the lines, some consider that his use of the word ‘vision’ is a direct reference to a character of the same name for The Avengers 2. Despite this belief, Diesel posted this message along with an image which would suggest quite the opposite, with a clear implication that he could be being considered for another Avengers role, that of Giant Man. Having said that, the photo could just have been taken at a random location at the Marvel offices.
Despite all the above, these are all just conjectures that spring to mind from Diesel’s teasing posts and we can’t even imagine how many actors Marvel have been meeting with recently.
We’ll keep you updated as soon as any more solid information is forthcoming.
We’ll leave you with a fan-made trailer showing us the closest Vin Diesel has been so far to working with Marvel. It’s a brilliant little faux trailer for a Thundercats movie:
