Following his tease of the business appointment last month, The Fast and the Furious franchise star Vin Diesel has now, according to his Facebook page, met with Marvel Studios regarding an upcoming project. If the below image he posted is any indication, that film is likely Marvel’s The Avengers 2.
“Marvel meeting today, Diesel writes. “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!”
Although the character of Giant-Man is featured prominently in his photo, it’s worth noting that Diesel managed to include the word “Vision” in his post. Could he be up for playing the android Avenger? Although the character hasn’t been confirmed to appear in the 2015 sequel, the Vision has been a major part of the team since his debut in “The Avengers” #57 all the way back in 1968.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that Diesel may up for another project altogether and only time will tell what Marvel film he ultimately appears in (if any). Following this past May’s release of Iron Man 3 and the official launch of “Phase Two” of the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe, the big screen universe is set to expand further with Thor: The Dark World in November and, in 2014, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel’s The Avengers 2 then concludes Phase Two on May 1, 2015 with “Phase Three” launching later that year when Ant-Man hits theaters November 6. Although no further films have been officially confirmed for Phase Three, it’s a good bet we’ll have a better idea of the upcoming slate after next week’s Comic-Con International in San Diego.
