Vin Diesel Teases a Visionary Meeting at Marvel HQ. An Avengers Role, Perhaps?

Vin Diesel at Marvel HQ

As previously reported, “Fast and Furious” star Vin Diesel had a scheduled meeting with the Marvel brass to talk about possible involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well that meeting has now taken place, and Diesel, as he is wont to do, has taken to Facebook to update his fans.

The domed one wrote:

Marvel meeting today…

Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed…

P.s. Thanks to Our page, for pushing to make it happen… you know I get tunnel vision with my work… and after that meeting today… wow!

The Vision Comic BookI’m sure it’s no coincidence that he’s standing in front of a framed “Avengers” comic book cover and used the word “vision” in his post. Vin Diesel has been long rumored to be playing a sentient android character called The Vision, a longtime member of The Avengers, and he’s a well-known nerd who somehow bulked up and became an action star. Basically, every nerd’s fantasy.

But is Diesel actually hinting that he might be joining the ranks of Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers 2″? That would certainly be an interesting add-on to Marvel’s existing universe. Perhaps even a solo Vision movie if the character is a hit.

Everything certainly points to a very logical appearance by Vision in the sequel. After all, Whedon has already made it known that the Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver will have a significant presence in the sequel, and as all comic book geeks know, the Scarlet Witch and Vision became husband and wife. Yes, she married an android. Hey, it’s the comic books!

And as you can see from the comic book cover below, the Scarlet Witch, Vision, and the Avengers have been known to team up against Thanos, the Mad Titan, every now and then…

    The post mentions the word Vision, which was long rumored by fanboys to be Diesel’s possible role. However, he is also standing in front of an Avengers comic which reads “Meet The New Giant-Man”!!! Could he be playing one of the alter egos of that character?!?!?! Then there is the possibility that none of this means anything. Lol. He could end up playing virtually anyone or no one.

      Good God I hope not! He’s not exactly a cerebral actor.

    I would rather The Vision than Giant Man.

    I just can’t see Vin Diesel playing Hank Pym. A genius scientist as smart as Tony Stark or even Reed Richards? Hell no. I wouldn’t buy that.

    I’ll go for The Vision.

      I also hope that’s not the case either. He’s not a good fit for the part at all.
