Vin Diesel Couldn't "Give A F*ck" Who Plays BATMAN

Vin Diesel Couldn't "Give A F*ck" Who Plays BATMAN

Everyone who's anyone has been asked what they think about "Batfleck" in recent interviews, but the Riddick actor was (refreshingly?) dismissive when the question was put to him. It seems Mr Diesel isn't a huge fan of the Caped Crusader at all!

Most actors say pretty much the same thing when asked how they think another actor will do in a role, but not Vin Diesel! While he does ultimately seem to come down in favor of Ben Affleck as Batman, In an interview with Clevver Movies the Guardians Of The Galaxy star doesn't mince words when asked his opinion on the matter -- he couldn't care less! "I don't give a f**k about Batman," he said. "Or who plays Batman." Pretty cut and dry -- although Diesel might just have become a bit jaded by the constant media frenzy over the casting, as he then calls for the fans who have been left...less than pleased about Affleck's casting to cut him some slack. "Let him live is my motto… let him live. Let Warner Bros. hire whoever they want, let Ben do whatever he wants. He got an Oscar, give him some credit. Leave him alone." In the above vid, Diesel's Riddick co-star Katee Sackhoff is also asked for her thoughts, and she's a lot more positive! She's also asked about recently putting her name forward to play Harley Quinn in a possible future Batman movie.

Wise words from an ever (surprisingly) wiser man.
He's sold his tough guy image very'd be surprised what a wise, smart, witty and soft hearted person he really is.

Wasn't this already posted...

Either way I agree with him and here's why. Nobody goes to see a Batman movie for Batman. They go for his villains. Batman 89, people talked about Jack's Joker. Batman Returns, people talked about Michelle's Catwoman and Danny's Penguin. Batman Forever, Jim's Riddler. The Dark Knight, Heath's Joker. The Dark Knight Rises, Tom's Bane.

We love Batman but we love the villains more. Only Batman movie about Batman is Batman Begins and we still had Ra's, League of Shadows, Falcone, mob bosses, and Scarecrow.

Respect for Vin Diesel.Seriously people tend to blow things a little out of porpotion.
Greengo - 9/4/2013, 6:38 AM
Yup this was already posted...
Greengo - 9/4/2013, 6:41 AM
Oh whaddya know the other article disappeared.

Greengo - 9/4/2013, 6:45 AM
I think perhaps he employed the 'motto' if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all lol.

Doesn't care about Batman... psshhh Yeah right I call b.s.
RorMachine - 9/4/2013, 6:48 AM
LOL, all this because I deleted you as friend on Facebook? Awwwww poor ginger:( Yes folks..that's where Greengo's little stalker vibes stem from.
RorMachine - 9/4/2013, 6:48 AM
..incidentally, I deleted him because he was a complete toolbag.
Greengo - 9/4/2013, 6:49 AM
Vin Diesel should play Killer Croc.

MightyZeus - 9/4/2013, 6:51 AM
Really they had to ask Groot for what he thinks. Well he gave the right answer.

LEVITIKUZ - 9/4/2013, 6:51 AM
Wait Ror is making fun of Greengo for being a ging?

But isn't Ror Irish and lives in Ireland. Aren't you a ging too?

TheBigBoss917 - 9/4/2013, 6:51 AM
...and nobody gives a [frick] about Riddick
SamM - 9/4/2013, 6:52 AM

sounds about right
ManCalledSting - 9/4/2013, 6:52 AM
Didn't I see this earlier?
MightyZeus - 9/4/2013, 6:53 AM
I respect Groot.
Greengo - 9/4/2013, 6:54 AM
Yes it's pretty clear Ror is racist against Gingers.

All what Ror? Just pointing out this was already posted before just like Levi did and now I'm stalking you??

Lol. Riiigggggghhhtt

You're not that special Ror.

Donekin - 9/4/2013, 6:54 AM
Vin Diesel seems like an arse. Daniel Tosh got it right in his stand up routine.
Amazing512 - 9/4/2013, 6:54 AM
Cool. I don't give a f**k about batman either.
MattMan - 9/4/2013, 7:06 AM
He also didnt give a [frick] about acting classes, either
deepee3 - 9/4/2013, 7:08 AM
Mmmmm....Katee looks gorgeous here. She would be an awesome Captain Marvel/Ms/ Marvel....
ParisSun - 9/4/2013, 7:09 AM
Watch the butthurt girls go crazy because he said he doesn't give a f**k about Batman. I'm with you there Vin, I'm with you there.

He's right.

Gotta protect the Marvel image.

TheWolverine08 - 9/4/2013, 7:10 AM
I go to a Batman to see Batman....................................
SuperJoe - 9/4/2013, 7:10 AM
Pathetic actor stick to your shitty fast and furious movies
UrbanKnight - 9/4/2013, 7:11 AM
Tryin hard to impress that female with his wanna be rebel/alpha male ass. Notice how he changed his stance (bitched out) on the subject later by answering.

Alright, It is tiresome to hear about the topic but come on! Don't give a [frick] about Batman!? Cuz your bald headed ass could never play em, that's why!

Don't be that guy that hates cuz very few people give a [frick] about anything you do that aint "Furious" related.
GodzillaKart - 9/4/2013, 7:11 AM
Vin's comments illustrate the reality that the issue has quickly gotten boring.

Personally, I'm warming up to Affleck...but he will have to work very hard to create a convincing Batman persona.

That said, I wish he had harder features, but he looks the part more than any actor to play it in the past. And he certainly couldn't be worse than Baby Jaw Bale.
UrbanKnight - 9/4/2013, 7:14 AM
Protect your paycheck hoe! Cuz playing a tree must be WAAAY better than playing the Goddamn BATMAN!
Dminic - 9/4/2013, 7:16 AM
I'm starting to lose my respect for "power users" like Ror..

People only comment on other articles being deleted in favor for the article of the "power users".
Something I see happening quite a lot lately.. And look how he responds! Damn If I were the BIG G I would delete every article coming from Ror for at least a month..

It's just not cool for other people, who are trying to help this site by submitting articles..
Mind you: these are the same people that are bringing a lot success to the site by making it lively in the comment section and such.
UrbanKnight - 9/4/2013, 7:22 AM
*voicing a tree* Sorry.
RorMachine - 9/4/2013, 7:23 AM
Right..this and every article I post, you're right there with a negative comment of some sort. Don't try to pass it off as coincidence're not that smart.

Dminic, I don't need to explain myself to anyone ..but I didn't see or delete any other article..I checked before posting this and it was gone. So, someone else obviously deleted it and they obviously had good reason. The author will have been sent an email with the details so if they care to comment..have at it.
superdupont - 9/4/2013, 7:25 AM
Who give a [frick] about who is cast for the role of an entire cgi humanoid tree, who only say "i m groot" ?
I feel that this guy is a little bitter...
UrbanKnight - 9/4/2013, 7:27 AM
"I am sure a lot of actors don't give a [frick] about who plays batman."

Yeah, unless they're up for the role! lmao
GodzillaKart - 9/4/2013, 7:27 AM
@LEVITIKUZ: I agree that up to this point most movie goers are more interested in Batman's villains than Batman himself, but that is only because Batman has yet to be made as a compelling character on the big screen.
JoeMomma29 - 9/4/2013, 7:28 AM
This is freaking hilarious!
GodzillaKart - 9/4/2013, 7:30 AM
@superdupont: I understand your point, but on the other hand, I think most people are sick of hearing about this "controversy". On top of that, this was an interview for Vin's new film "Riddick". It is a bit rude to as a completely unrelated question about a more popular franchise.

That said, Groot says more than "I am Groot" and Vin did outstanding voice work in The Iron Giant.
Dminic - 9/4/2013, 7:32 AM
And that also explains the ginger stuff and other rude remarks how??
You’re a "power user", act like one. If in your opinion someone is annoying/ a toolbag just ignore him like a grown-up would do.
That’s the way I read trough the comment section..
But for this instance I'm making an exception because of your inappropriate comment, and you should set the example how to comment on articles.
supermarioworldE - 9/4/2013, 7:33 AM
Smart Man. Everything has been "Batman this" and "Nolan that" for so long that I'm getting numb to the character.

Putting him in MOS 2 is just furthering the problem.
