While Diesel teases his involvement in Marvel universe, the studio's president Kevin Feige denies he has had meeting with the actor prior to their Comic-Con encounter.
Vin Diesel seems to be really enthusiastic about his Marvel gig. During "Riddick" Comic-Con panel last week, the buffed action star revealed that there would be "some very big news coming at the end of this month." It turns out that he dropped some other information related to his potential involvement in Marvel universe off the Comic-Con stage.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Diesel gave another hint at what kind of project he would take part in. "Marvel was excited about bring a different kind of relationship, a different kind of love story," the 46-year-old hunk said. "I guess kind of inspired from the Dom-Letty [couple in 'Fast and Furious' franchise] relationship, into the Marvel universe."
While Diesel has been very open about his project at Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige seemingly wants to keep it a secret. During the Comic-Con weekend, the head of the studio revealed to Huffington Post that he had not had a meeting with Diesel prior to their Comic-Con encounter.
"And I'll be very honest with you. We did a press day on the 'Captain America' set last week or something. The very first question was, 'So how did the meeting with Vin Diesel go?' I went, 'Here's the funny thing, it hasn't happened yet,' " Feige said.
"So, there's nothing to announce. But, I love Vin and he's an amazing personality. Look how much attention he's gotten for a meeting."
Diesel has been predicted to play either Vision of probably "Avengers: Age of Ultron", as the actor himself teased through his Facebook post, or Thanos whose appearance in "Guardians of the Galaxy" has been confirmed by James Gunn. As of now, further details are not available.
