Kevin Feige Talks Vin Diesel & Joseph Gordon Levitt Marvel Movie Rumors

marvelFor the record, I like Kevin Feige. I personally met him at Comic Con recently in the lobby of the Omni Hotel and he was quite the gentleman. He came up to me and we had a chat. He’s a good guy and he asked me about my health.

There is no denying he is a master showman who rocks the house year in and year out at Comic Con and had the testicular fortitude to put all his heroes and brands together in The Avengers. That alone is revolutionary because all the studios are trying to bite what he did and bring their brands together in a movie.

While in London promoting Thor: The Dark World, Kevin Feige spoke to my boy Mike Ryan over Huffington Post and addressed recent casting rumors.

Concerning Vin Diesel, Kevin Feige said:

He’s made so much news with this, I had to double check this morning to confirm that there still hasn’t been an official announcement that he’s a part of “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Yeah, I think it’s close. I think it’s close to being official for the Groot character. But, not 100 percent yet.

Concerning Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Feige said:

Why is Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s name always come up when a new Marvel movie is being cast? This has happened three times now.
Well, sometimes it’s because we are legitimately talking, and sometimes it’s just because he’s a prominent actor out there now. And lots of rumors surround prominent actors.

See? Told ya they been trying to get into the Levitt business. Whether it happens with Ant-Man or Doctor Strange remains to be seen. I’ll know soon enough and report back to you guys. ;)

    I like Vin Diesel, he seems like a little kid when it comes to projects. He just gets so excited and pumped and whatnot. So is he technically NOT groot yet?

  • Bryce Lynch

    I’d rather see JGL as Ant-Man, I want an older Dr. Strange, he’s one of the elder statesmen of the Marvel Universe.

  • GFoley83

    Josh Brolin for Dr.Strange.

  • Bryce Lynch

    Brolin would be great for something but is too beefy for Strange. You need a slim Bowie-esqe type actor. I’ve always thought Adrien Brody would be perfect, he has the chops to pull a character like that off.

  • NatSolo

    i’d rather it be paul rudd. tired of jgl’s face, and viggo should be strange.

  • RS

    Just give me JGL in whatever role and make it awesome, please.

  • antiorbit

    Dreamcasting for Dr Strange is Daniel Day Lewis, but doubt he would take on a role like that, especially with the multiple picture deals Marvel seems to prefer.

  • Vegas82

    That’s what the article says. They’re close, just not quite there yet.

  • AlexiasLazar

    Right on…

  • whatsxhisxname

    Brolin this brolin that. Did you guys see jonah hex??? Dont blame it on the script. He suuuuuuuuucked in that movie!!!!!!! I say Jonathan Rhys Myers for doctor strange. He has the look and is a million times better then josh freaking brolin

  • Brian Knockin

    my dream casting lol damn please do it Daniel and Marvel and Disney lol

  • Brian Knockin

    he may actually be Thanos but the film Guardians of the Galaxy has been filmed now and is on to the next phase to be ready so due to the fact they will both be major CGI characters and Thanos would need a great voice he can say “I Am Groot” and still do many Thanos lines

  • oxman212

    I prefer Viggo Mortensen.

    But I catch your drift with Brody.

  • oxman212

    Just think of Rudd and Downey’s scenes together, pure gold.

    I love JGL, but I actually prefer Rudd for Ant-Man.

  • Chris

    Hold on a second…… Josh Brolin sucks but Jonathan Rhys Myers is a million times better than him? Wtf are you smoking?

  • Ultron_Nr1

    Is this 12 weeks old?? If Vin Diesel is not in Guardians then he sure is a desperate fucker…..

  • Ultron_Nr1

    so Vin Diesel says he only has one line in GotG ( I am Groot )

    but in his next Marvel movie , he has even less lines .

    You figure it out.

    Coming 2016

  • beane2099

    I still think this Vinny D as Groot thing is a dodge. The fact that they keep talking about this particular thing tells me either a) it’s a publicity thing or b)it’s slight of hand and something else is going on. Or it could really be that he’s playing Groot and it’s just taking this long to get things going (He is filming Fast 7 right now).

  • Chris Groves

    I honestly wouldn’t be shocked if Diesel wound up playing Groot(for his one line and mo-cap) as well as Thanos…and then showed up later in that rumored ’2016 movie’

  • HunterOfTROLLZ

    Feige talks… Interestingly.

  • ANTI Douche

    If I never see JGL’s face again…
    It will be too soon. *___*

  • Dakkar

    Joseph Fiennes = Doctor Strange.

  • Robbie Moraes

    The Huffington Post is a internet tabloid rag.

  • Chris Pickrell

    If it’s just these two, does anyone potentially see Luke Cage and Iron Fist?
