He loves Groot, we all do, but Vin Diesel has plans in store for his continued relationship with Marvel.
The “Fast and the Furious” star has been hinting at various characters and franchises for years. Well before his “Guardians of the Galaxy” role was revealed.
Recently, the actor has been indicating that he”s preparing to take on the role of Black Bolt in Marvel's upcoming “Inhumans” movie, slated for release in 2019.
In a recent interview with IGN, the actor gave his best – silent – audition for the role, joking, “If I said one word, I would level all of London”.
Black Bolt is the leader of the Inhumans and can destroy a city with his voice.
Diesel indicated that he”s been in active talks with head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige about the role.
“Who would”ve thought,” he said. “A voice for one thing and presence for another would be pretty genius – it'd be pretty genius. Whenever my father sends me an email, at the end of it he says 'stay human' – and it's cool and beautiful, but what is he really trying to say. Is he trying to say I've been affected by Terrigen Mist? Does he want to cocoon me again?”
As those who know the comics or have been watching “Marvel”s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” know, Terrigen Mist is the catalyst for the transformation into a super-powered Inhuman.
