What?! According to Bleeding Cool Marvel Studios never requested to meet with Vin Diesel. They seem to confirm that Vin played cat and mouse with the studio until they gave in and approached him at the SDCC '13. Read on for more...
Remember Vin's status that he post on facebook last year?, “Marvel has requested a meeting … no idea what for … haha, you probably know better than me.” Well it turns out that Vin made it all up according to Bleeding Cool. Here's what the site had to say on the matter..
"There was much commotion, the post was taken down and people wondered what was going on. He then posted about a follow up meeting.
The truth? Vin Diesel had made it up. That’s according to this Marvel Comics exec. They told me that Marvel had not requested an initial meeting, Vin Diesel was just playing around with social media and may not have realised the geekstorm that his words may have caused. And the voice of Groot had not been cast.
However Marvel noticed the geekstorm. Had a few words. And had a meeting. Found him Groot. And the rest is history"
Pretty cool huh? What do you guys think? Vin Diesel will voice and provide motion capture for Groot in Marvel's upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy
