With the San Diego Comic-Con now less than a month away, Marvel is continuing to hint that they will have some big announcements in store at their panel. We know that Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will kick off with Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man on Nov. 6th, 2015, and earlier this month Marvel set release dates for two more Phase Three movies on May 6th, 2016 and May 5th, 2017 respectively. Many believe that these two movies will be Doctor Strange and The Black Panther, but we won’t know for sure until mid-July. In the meantime, however, there are other things afoot; Vin Diesel recently revealed that Marvel has approached him for a meeting. What could they possibly want to talk to him about?
Vin Diesel recently posted the following message on his Facebook page:
“Marvel has requested a meeting… no idea what for… haha, you probably know better than me…”
Based on the predicted Phase Three projects, Black Panther seems like an obvious possibility. Still, Marvel tends to cast lesser known actors for their lead roles and Vin Diesel’s current price tag might be a bit too high for anything other than a supporting role. Another role that might make sense, however, is Thanos. He will likely be a CG creation, but Diesel could definitely provide a booming voice to back it up. Would you be happy to see Vin Diesel join the Marvel Cinematic Universe? What role do you think they have in mind for him?
