During the Comic-Con panel for the upcoming sequel “Riddick,” star Vin Diesel all but confirmed his rumored involvement with the Marvel movie universe.
Although Diesel’s involvement with Marvel hasn’t been officially confirmed, the star may have given himself away today at the San Diego Comic-Con. When a fan asked, “What is your vision for the upcoming Marvel movies?,” Diesel was all sheepish smiles. He responded, “Why did I have to go ahead and say, ‘Ask the question’? One last one? And he asked the one question I’m not supposed to say anything on. What do you think?”
Rumors have been circulating that Diesel — who previously revealed that he’s recently met with Marvel head Kevin Feige — will be joining the cast of “Avengers 2.” In his Facebook post about the meeting, he said, “you know I get tunnel vision with my work,” leading some to believe he was hinting about taking on the role of the Vision.
Looks like we’ll find out in a few weeks.
Stay tuned, true believers.
“The Avengers 2” will be released May 1, 2015.
