So Vin Diesel is Groot… and we all love him in the role. Yes, “We are Groot!” too… but we’ve been wondering since Marvel confirmed there could still be a place for Diesel to appear as another character in the Marvel Universe, just who he would be.
Well, on the actor’s Facebook Page, this weekend he posted an image of Groot with the message:
Vin and Marvel… you all made it happen!
I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I’m Inhuman… Haha.
So, he’s saying thanks for the fans helping make him part of the movie universe and loving him so much as Groot – fair play, but the mention of “Inhumans” is what peaked our interest.
Kevin Feige has hinted that an Inhumans movie is something they are considering – If you’re unsure who they are check here, it’s an impressive story – and the Inhumans have a leader by the name of Blackbolt, a character who never talks because his voice can level cities because it’s so powerful. Wouldn’t that be ironic if Marvel put his voice in one character and his body in another? Anyway, check out the pic below which shows Blackbolt AND Diesel as Riddick… we love the similarities
Of course it could be nothing, but throw in the fact that we’re hearing Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are going to be called Inhumans in Age of Ultron (they can’t use the term ‘mutant’ as Fox has copyright – mad, huh?) and we’re pretty sure that there could be something to this…
I am Groot! But I’m also… well, we’ll see…
