Vin Diesel May Have A (Major) Role In Another Marvel Film


Oh, Vin Diesel. You’re not the greatest actor of our generation, but you certainly know how to keep your name in the headlines.

This weekend, Vin Diesel decided to celebrate the success he and the rest of the Guadians Of The Galaxy have been experiencing by sharing a photo of his character, Groot, with fans on Facebook. At the bottom of the photo, Vin added a caption that reads “Vin and Marvel… you all made it happen! I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman… Haha.” The original post can be found here.

The poorly constructed sentence mentioned above has left comic fans in a joyful daze, and it has nothing to do with the tree-like creature Diesel voices in Guadians Of The Galaxy. You see, Marvel has a slew of unannounced films planned for the coming years, and one of the titles most often tied to a big screen adaptation is Inhumans, or as it has more recently been known, Inhuman. The series follows a race of genetically engineered aliens, which sounds right up Riddick’s alley, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has already gone on record as saying the series has “great potential … for a great movie.”

Whether or not Vin is messing with us will likely not be revealed for some time. That said, we do know that in November 2013 he told members of the press that he originally met with Marvel to discuss “a fresh IP that would come out in 2016 or 2017, and potentially launch the third phase.”

We’ll keep an eye out for updates and developments on this story, but knowing Marvel it will take a miracle for anything to leak before the studio’s chosen ‘reveal’ time. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
