Vin Diesel Says Marvel Initially Wanted Him as Main Superhero in Another Movie, But Which One?

Vin Diesel Says Marvel Initially Wanted Him as Main Superhero in Another Movie, But Which One?Submit Comment
Vin Diesel is currently promoting his upcoming "Riddick" film and is answering questions about his role in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," in which he'll play a tree-alien named Groot.

The actor said that he will provide the voice and motion for the CG character. Considering that Diesel is a big star, it seems strange that Marvel wouldn't want him to play a bigger part in the company's cinematic universe.

According to Diesel, his initial talks with Marvel weren't to play Groot, but to star in his own film. "That was the focus of our conversation a fresh [property] that would come out in 2016 or 2017, and potentially launch the third phase," he said.

And while that may still happen, the actor wanted to be part of the universe much sooner. Unfortunately, whatever role he took would have to be small, since "Fast and Furious 7" is getting ready to begin filming. As a result, he ended up as Groot.

Regarding which Marvel movie Diesel was planning to star in is still unclear. According to rumors, the actor was looking into a Luke Cage film.

Regardless of the specific details, this film seems like it will be worth checking out. There will, however, likely be quite a rush once it hits store shelves. A good way to ensure you get a copy is to buy the film online as opposed to a brick and mortar retailer. There are plenty of new DVDs for sale online, and this method ensures you can get exactly what you want without having to worry about any large lines. Best of all, your favorite films are almost always in stock, whereas most video stores typically struggle to keep hot new releases on the shelves.

He better stay as Groot. I don't see many Marvel heroes that Vin is right for.
