Out of all the actors and celebrities who interact with fans through Facebook and/or Twitter, few are as open as Vin Diesel. The Riddick star revealed on his Facebook page today that Marvel Studios has requested to meet with him.
"Marvel has requested a meeting... no idea what for... haha, you probably know better than me..."
With the amount of projects that Marvel has in various stages of development, it's hard to pin down what exactly this meeting may be for. Marvel Phase Two movies Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers 2 have not gone into production yet, neither has the only confirmed Marvel Phase Three movie, Ant-Man. Other projects in development include Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and, much further down the line, The Avengers 3.
Would you like to see Vin Diesel suit up as a Marvel superhero? Or a Marvel villain? There has been much controversy over Michael B. Jordan being cast as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four. Are they tempting more controversy by throwing Vin Diesel into the ring as African chief of the Panther Tribe of the advanced nation of Wakanda, T'Chall, aka Black Panther? Diesel was raised by a caucasian mother and African-American stepfather, and has often said that he is 'definitely a person of colour'. So why not? He actually looks like he could pull off the part. Let the controversy begin. Who do you think Vin Diesel should play in the Marvel Universe?
