Over the past year or so, Vin Diesel has taken every opportunity to hint at a potential role in Marvel’s upcoming Inhumans movie, with the actor seemingly lobbying hard for the part of Black Bolt. Now, speaking to MTV, the Guardians of the Galaxy star has now changed his tune somewhat, suggesting that the role is his if he wants it – but Marvel will need to “woo” him with the script and director.

“I don’t do too much ’if it happens,’” Diesel explained. “Do you know what I mean?… I don’t do too much ’if it happens,’ it’s more at what level it will happen… it’s not a matter of me wooing Marvel, it’s a matter of Marvel wooing me. And I love them, but I’m just saying, show me a dope script and show me a great director, all of which I know that Kevin Feige is capable of, because he dazzled me when he suggested Groot. That was, like, profound to me.”
Inhumans is set for release on July 12, 2019.
