Whilst out promoting his new film ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ Vin Diesel in an interview with io9 claimed that although he already provides the voice of Groot in Guardians of The Galaxy he’d like to play a live action role in the Marvel Cinematic universe.
Speaking with io9 he said “I can totally be something (else) with Marvel, I think playing that role only makes Marvel that much more excited and me having my experience with Marvel, seeing how great they were, makes me more excited.
We’ve heard a lot of talk about Marvel wanting to have me play a character that doesn’t have my voice. So my voice is used for Groot and my presence is used for the other character.”
Since the Inhumans film was announced Diesels’ name has been attached to it. With the news recently that the Inhumans film could be scrapped these comments are very interesting and perhaps he lobbying for fan interest in him playing another role.
