So apparently Vin Diesel, the greatest actor of his generation, has been in talks with Marvel about a potential role in some future Marvel film project. Or at least, that’s was the Diesel would have us believe. You see, this whole story is based on a couple of Facebook posts made by—that’s right—Vin Diesel.
The first came back on June 26. ‘Marvel has requested a meeting… no idea what for,’ wrote the star of The Pacifier. Then, just yesterday, Vinny was back on Facebook, posting the above photo with the following caption:
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!
Now, Marvel currently has about 250 film projects in the works, so really there’s no telling which one Diesel might be in. However, it’s certainly hard to ignore what’s in the background of that photo. Is that just a coincidence, or is Diesel going to be Giant Man in Avengers 2?
Personally, I’m going with coincidence. As you may (or may not, if you were busy having sex with girls in college instead of reading comic books) recall, Giant Man is the alter ego of brilliant scientist and inventor Henry Pym.
Can you imagine Vin Diesel as a brilliant scientist and inventor?
