SDCC 2013: Vin Diesel talks mystery Marvel role and comics. Is he Rocket Raccoon?

July 20th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Everyone knows that today at SDCC belongs to Hall H. Rumors are running rampant, everything from Avengers 2 cast showing up to a full Guardians of the Galaxy reveal. This only adds more intrigue to Vin Diesel’s mystery Marvel role. When we first brought you that story, I figured either Vision or the voice of Thanos. But Rocket was always a cool third choice.  In the following video interview with IGN he basically confirms that he will  indeed be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But that’s not all, check out the actors reaction when asked, whether his role will be revealed at today’s Marvel panel and if he’s playing Rocket Raccoon in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. While not any sort of confirmation by any means he does seem taken aback. It could also mean that the guess was way off too. Either way hopefully we find out today.

Who do you guys think he’s playing?
