Serial social networker Vin Diesel has a massive following of 44 million people on Facebook, and last month he teased that he would be taking a meeting with the folks at Marvel. Today he released a photo along with the following cryptic message:
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 only thing we can know for sure from this report is that a meeting was had with the Marvel people, and that his non-disclosure agreement didn’t cover photos of himself in the foyer. That won’t stop us from speculating.
Standing in front of a classic issue of The Avengers could be indicative of him being in the next Avengers film. Or it could be coincidence. He also mentions the word “Vision” in his post, but that is probably a stretch. He also mentions “The Room” so it’s just as likely he’s playing Tommy Wiseau.
There are at least three unannounced Marvel films floating about. This will either be big news at the San Diego Comic-Con next week, or announced when they are good and ready. Until now, it seems fairly safe to say that Vin Diesel is the newest member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
