While everyone is still waiting for Marvel’s official announcement regarding its next set of films a number of rumors have already started circulating online. Following the recent success of Marvel’s latest blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel who played Groot had possibly hinted about his next role in the expanding Marvel Cinema Universe.

Last week, Vin Diesel posted this on his Facebook page:


Did Vin Diesel just gave away his next role? If Vin were to actually take on the role of the Inhuman king, Black Bolt, the role would fit him perfectly. If this is true, then Marvel has once again done a great job at casting its comic book heroes. It would be interesting though the we might not see Vin Diesel speak again in a Marvel movie.In his role as Groot for Guardians of The Galaxy, all Vin said was: “I am Groot”, if ever in the Inhumas, he might have little or no dialogue at all as Black Bolt does not speak because when he does he unleashes a powerful earth shattering force.


Vin Diesel is no stranger when it comes to fantasy/superhero themed movies. Aside from Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin has also appeared in The Chronicles of Riddick franchise and the voice of The Iron Giant. Vin Diesel had also previously mentioned that he would be making his true appearance in the Marvel Cinema Universe when Phase 3 comes out. Could this be the role that he was talking about? Well, for now we have to wait for Marvel’s official release as Phase 3 doesn’t come out until 2015.
