Vin Diesel has always loved sharing important information with his fans. It doesn’t even matter if the information has been confirmed. His fans are like family to him, and he’s constantly providing them with updates on his social media pages.
But this time he didn’t spill the beans on Facebook or Instagram. During an interview with io9, the actor revealed he’s in talks to play another character in the Marvel universe. And this role would be completely different from his Groot character in Guardians of the Galaxy.
This new role would be one that doesn’t feature his voice at all…
“We’ve heard a lot of talk about Marvel wanting to have me play a character that doesn’t have my voice. So my voice is used for Groot and my presence is used for the other character.”
Which character might he be talking about? Well, most people seem to think he’s referring to Black Bolt in Inhumans. This seems to make the most sense for a few reasons. The character is known for using his intimidating physical presence, he hardly ever uses his voice, which fits right in with Vin’s quote. And Vin has actually referenced Inhumans on his Facebook page several times.
The film isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until 2019, so there is still a lot of time for things to change. But for right now? It’s looking like Diesel will be getting the big role.
