Vin Diesel talks Guardians Of The Galaxy
Whilst still not officially confirmed Vin Diesel's involvement with Guardians Of The Galaxy looks more likely after these recent comments.
It's widely believed that Vin Diesel's mystery Marvel role is that of voicing Groot in James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy. All indicators point to him lending his voice to the tree-like alien, and he's spoken to the L.A. Times about the role. "I'm an actor, not everything has to be the most obvious choice and sometimes the best thing you can do – as far as Steven Spielberg and his advice – is to defy expectations", he said. "So if everybody thinks you're going to go for this one thing and then you flip it entirely and go for the strangest Marvel character, it's interesting. And when something is interesting, it's inspiring".
He went on to address the fan speculation of his role and how Marvel feels about him teasing his involvement with the studio through social media. "The last thing they are is mad. I'm pretty open, but I have been secretive about this. I went to Comic-Con and I got blasted while I was on the Hall H panel for Riddick. Someone asked a Marvel question. I couldn't say anything because of the secrecy".
Guardians Of The Galaxy already boasts a ridiculously impressive cast and the pictures and footage that have appeared to date just further reinforce our excitement about the film.
