Vin Diesel to meet with Marvel Studios

Vin Diesel

With Phase Two in full swing and plans for Phase Three already well underway, the expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to pick up pace, and now Riddick star Vin Diesel has taken to his Facebook account to reveal he’s set to meet with Marvel: “Marvel has requested a meeting… no idea what for… haha, you probably know better than me…”

So, what role could Marvel be eyeing the Fast & Furious star for? There are still a couple of parts available in Guardians of the Galaxy (namely Rocket Raccoon, Groot and potentially Thanos), but James Gunn’s upcoming space epic is set to film at the same time as Fast & Furious 7, so there could be scheduling issues there. He doesn’t seem much of a fit for Ant-Man or the heavily-rumoured Doctor Strange, unless they’re planning on featuring him as a villain in one of those movies. Black Panther could be a possibility, while Diesel himself has previously expressed an interest in portraying The Vision.
