Last night Fast And Furious 6 actor Vin Diesel revealed via his Facebook page that Marvel had asked for a meeting. No other information was given, so obviously it could be for any number of parts, or none at all..yet! It's not uncommon for a studio to be interested in working with an actor but not have a specific role in mind right away, and we know that Marvel have a LOT of movies in the pipeline over the next few years. But let's assume that they do have a character in mind, who could it be? The most common theory is that he'll actually be doing voice work, and since Marvel still haven't announced who'll be providing the voices of Rocket Raccoon and Groot in Guardians Of The Galaxy, many reckon he'll be bringing life to the latter (Rocket is a stretch!). Now Diesel has described himself as being "of ambiguous ethnicity", with his background including Scottish, Italian, African-American and "a lot of stuff". But he definitely feels that he's a person of color -- so is Black Panther out of the question? I can't imagine it'd be too popular a choice among fans, but you never know. How about Thanos? We know Avengers 2 will need a big bad, and Diesel would certainly suit that role. Then there's The Vision, who Diesel himself dropped some hints about a while back -- could he be appearing in the Avengers sequel? Also -- even though no Sub-Mariner movie has been officially announced -- many fans seem to thing he'd make a good Namor; is that a possibility? Below we've included the obvious and one or two not so obvious choices! Vote away and sound off in the usual place.

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/27/2013, 11:11 AM
Yeah, stay away from cbms
MrReese - 6/27/2013, 11:12 AM
I'll go with Vision if anything.
ShogunNevets - 6/27/2013, 11:12 AM
Groot, Vision or Other, only options

BlueMex - 6/27/2013, 11:14 AM
im guessing Groot ! or a strech is vision
LucasMend - 6/27/2013, 11:14 AM
Ugh, idk because I don't like him as an actor
GodzillaKart - 6/27/2013, 11:15 AM
I would love to see him as Crusher Creel...but my guess is Groot.

Man, he would suck as Vision.
AlexanderLykins - 6/27/2013, 11:16 AM
I went with Thanos because he'll be predominantly CGI. Only really need the voice. He'll probably be the size of the Hulk so you really don't need an actor to play him so to speak. All of the other character make no sense in my mind. If he was darker I could see T'Challa.
TheOneAboveAll - 6/27/2013, 11:19 AM
Does any one else remember he was the voice of The Iron Giant?
KalebAmos - 6/27/2013, 11:20 AM
The Vision has a very ethereal quality that's imbedded into his character; I don't see Diesel pulling it off. Hopefully he's a Crusher Creel, Wrecker or some other villainous side-character.
MrCBM56 - 6/27/2013, 11:20 AM
Just because he says he is meeting with marvel does not mean its Marvel Studios. It could be for Fox or Sony.
Equivocal - 6/27/2013, 11:22 AM
I see,

another Vin Diesel article about that meeting with Marvel ....

when I posted my article, there was none other article, then mine got deleted and now

this ...??

oh well


like I said it on my deleted post, I wouldn't mind seeing him as 'Dormammu'
AlexanderLykins - 6/27/2013, 11:22 AM
I also want to ask when the Marvel news is supposed to pour in. They said a bunch of news would hit before Comic-Con and I'm getting impatient. I want to know how on Earth they are going to start connecting all of the dots. All of these stories are going to converge and I'm giddy to figure of how it's all going to happen.
jp688 - 6/27/2013, 11:26 AM
Couldn't be Vision, obviously. I can't wait for The Vision to enter the Avengers storyline on film, but Diesel ain't gonna be the guy. Most likely a voice over role.
theKamizeus - 6/27/2013, 11:26 AM
Hmm it's either the Vision, Namor, or Groot.
charlie2094 - 6/27/2013, 11:26 AM
I reckon he'll be Groot. Just watch the Iron Giant, the way he made such short sentences and words evoke different emotions was fantastic, and exactly the same sort of thing Marvel need to do with Groot. Same sentence, but different emotions
JordanKing - 6/27/2013, 11:29 AM
What the hell.. Black Panther? The thought alone makes me sick, this guy isnt even black!
tacobender - 6/27/2013, 11:34 AM
He's perfect for Groot!
heisei24 - 6/27/2013, 11:35 AM
Scarlet Witch.
Spike22 - 6/27/2013, 11:35 AM
Actually Vinnie is half black.
Splenda - 6/27/2013, 11:35 AM
It's Groot
Splenda - 6/27/2013, 11:36 AM
i bet
Christuffer - 6/27/2013, 11:36 AM
Thanos would be bad to the bone yo!!! I could totally see that being ridiculously epic
JackofallTrades - 6/27/2013, 11:36 AM
@Charlie 2094 - i agree!!
TheSisko - 6/27/2013, 11:39 AM
wasn't thanos already cast?
quadrapioneer - 6/27/2013, 11:39 AM
Dazzler.
Irohny - 6/27/2013, 11:39 AM
I'll take Luke Cage. I think that'd be a really good fit for him.
AlexanderLykins - 6/27/2013, 11:41 AM
@TheSisko
Marvel is being extremely secretive about the Thanos casting. I think that'll be a Comic-Con announcement.
gambgel - 6/27/2013, 11:43 AM
so no "none" option?

nothing against him, but I preffer him out of the Marvel universe.
Mike89 - 6/27/2013, 11:44 AM
Trevor Slattery? LMAO!
AlexDeLarge87 - 6/27/2013, 11:47 AM
Ronan The Accuser.

Crusher Creel could be cool too.
marvel72 - 6/27/2013, 11:47 AM
if he is thanos,this will be the second time that batista & diesel have gone at it.
Mr2099 - 6/27/2013, 11:47 AM
If he shows up as Ben Grimm.....

soda9 - 6/27/2013, 11:52 AM
Hope he plays Groot or Vision! He could do the voice and also the motion capture. His voice is perfect for the two, and he seems to be a fan of Vision, as well.
Ranger14 - 6/27/2013, 11:56 AM
Black Panther, Luke Cage or Dr. Strange? Seriously? Rocket Raccoon with Vin Diesel's voice? No Thanks. Surprised one would even think he would remotely be appropriate for those roles. To each their own, I guess.
CaptainKangarooPimp - 6/27/2013, 11:57 AM
The Iron Giant is my favourite film so I hope he gets the job as Groot because I think he does best with characters with limited dialogue. Although my first choice for Groot was Sam Elliott.
Superboyadam - 6/27/2013, 11:57 AM
Gotta be groot and he better not be vision cos he's just too old and he can't act smart enough or express the emotional range the vision needs
