So we’ve been hearing rumours for some time that Vin Diesel, despite voicing Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, may well be playing Black Bolt from The Inhumans in the upcoming movie (here) and now the actor is declaring his love for the character...
Talking with Esquire, the actor was asked about superheroes in a quickfire question round and it led to Black Bolt. Or rather Diesel directed it that way.
He was asked if he preferred Batman or Superman and he replied “Marvel” – perhaps the question got away from him?
Next they asked who was his favourite X-man, Cyclops or Wolverine, again he ignored the specific question and answered “Guardians!” then he added “OK, Black Bolt. Black Bolt, Black Bolt, Black Bolt!”
However, all the questions didn’t get away from him as, when asked Star Wars or Star Trek, he replied “Star Wars”. That’s good enough for us, Vin.
So, do you think he is dropping hints about his future in the MCU or does he just really, really like Black Bolt?
Inhumans is due on July 12, 2019.
