Vin Diesel talks about his other project at Marvel

vin-diesel-la-6-26-13Vin Diesel had a few meeting at Marvel, and it was eventually revealed that he will be voicing Groot, the tree in Guardians of the Galaxy, (Personally I would have preferred him as Rocket Raccoon, but what do I know?) but that wasn’t all they talked about.

While talking to Maria Menounos Diesel had this to say:

“When I met with Marvel it wasn’t for anything immediate, it was to talk about a film that would be introduced in the Phase 3 part of Marvel — not for a few years.”

The Phase 3 films he is referring to is a bit of a mystery. He said it would hit in 2016, and then he said the following:

“… something so big I can’t even talk about because it’s like the merging of brands in a way which I won’t get into.”

Merging of brands? What could he be referring to?

Any ideas?

    it is probably for one of the more supernatural/magical characters or if by the time marvel gets namor rights back a character like that. I doubt he means some funky crossover with sony or fox as some would think.

  • KnightGambitSMN

    It was for Black Bolt and the Inhumans movie

  • Christopher M

    either it’s INHUMANS (MCU’s version of the X-Men/Mutants) as Black Bolt or…. Universal is actually moving forward with NAMOR: THE SUB-MARINER.. with Marvel Studios working on it’s production ala INCREDIBLE HULK.. those are my theories anyways..

  • J.A.C.

    He would be an awesome galactus! He would have been horrible a rocket racon I was hoping for Simon Pegg as Rocket.

  • The Usual Suspect

    Black Bolt and the Inhumans would be f*cking sick.

  • a boy could dream

    Hes CLEARLY refering to a MARVEL VS DC movie. But all the way in 2021

  • HunterOfTROLLZ

    Awesome.
    Looking forward to it Vin.

  • Jack Hawksmoor

    I thought it may just be a short run Riddick comic, put riddick in the background of one of the space prisons etc.. refer to things in the marvel universe in the riddick comic..

  • oxman21

    Silver Surfer for Guardians 2.

  • c_r_gauthier

    Well, merging of brands, what does it mean?
    DC with Marvel? (would be cool)
    Sony and Marvel? (that would mean maybe Spiderman and the Avengers!)
    Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy? (probably what he is really hinting at…)
    Riddick and Marvel?

  • moviefan

    i would take inhumans too myself if it wasnt namor(and probably wont be for a few more years) with rights to namor still as said by kevin feige at universal.

  • runner_j

    I think Diesel is full of shit. He’s puffs himself up like a pro wrestler.

  • Dan Riedel

    Galaktus, King Pin, Silver Surfer, or Apocalypse

  • Sabre777

    I am not sure marvel thinks very highly of Diesel’s acting chops, if first they give him a part where all he says is “I am Groot,” to the next non-speaking part of Black Bolt.

    VIN IS A MILLIONAIRE
    YOU’RE BROKE

    FUK YOU

  • Barchiel

  • DaBUU

    Sup Vin!

  • runner_j

    Wow, I didn’t know Diesel was on here ;)

  • SiriousDanner

    Disney, Marvel, Fox , Sony etc

    SECRET WARS ( 2 films or 3 ? )

    Down the line plan in the (dream)works…….. They can even drop Overpriced Jr and go with James Rhodes as Ironman.

  • SiriousDanner

    Secret Wars ( fox, sony and marvel studios collide )

  • bugger_butt

    if they have Vin Deisel play Namor…before DC can get Aquaman on the screen…it’s game over for DC

  • Ron Zelonis

    avengers 3 civil war

  • Up Grayedd

    X-Men vs. Avengers

  • derpa

    the thing

  • jamthemaj

    Hahahaha holy cow!

  • jamthemaj

    Vin is definitely not one of my favorite actors, but I do like the Riddick flicks. Whatever he does with Marvel, I hope it’s good and he’s at least good enough in it.

  • Kill Bomb

    WOW… Horrible actor… He needs to just quit already!!!

  • avidavid

    Pretty sure he’s talking about Infinity Gauntlet, all hands on deck so to speak…
