Vin Diesel, according to his Facebook page, has taken a meeting with Marvel Studios. And it appears the The Fast and Furious franchise star may be heading into the legion that is the superhero collective making up The Avengers for The Avengers 2. Check out the pic he posted below and tell me that doesn’t mean what we think it means.
Of course, there is no confirmation from Marvel and no indication as to what role he would play. But, Diesel did say this:
"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!"
Given that Diesel used the word “vision” in his post -- perhaps he could play the android Avenger, who first appeared in the Marvel comic in 1968. Or… we think a match made in heaven is Diesel as Giant-Man. Either way, we think it’s a given that the world of The Avengers is getting more crowded with Diesel’s addition. We previously reported that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are in the sequel.
And this may be too small of an imagining of what the meeting was… could the superstar be talking to the famed studio for a project all his own?
We’ll be talking to Marvel head Kevin Feige in San Diego for Comic-Con when they bring Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Thor: The Dark World and you know the Diesel question will come up!
