Vin Diesel Teases Possible Role in 'The Avengers 2'

The question is, who would he be?

We heard a rumor before that Marvel was interested in meeting with Vin Diesel. Speculation arose but there wasn't really any concrete leads. Up until now.

On the actor's Facebook page, he presented the following image:

The caption simply said, "Marvel meeting today... Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed..."

Now we can once again speculate who he might be. Standing in front of an Avengers poster suggests it's a role for Avengers 2. Is there any significance to this particular image or was it just the only one available? What do you all think? Vision? Hank Pym? (Probably not). Someone else?

Vision

He also said he sometimes has tunnel vision with his work.

Tunnel vision.

Vision.

Vision.

VISION.

But really, as @deranged_midget pointed out to me on Twitter, he is standing in front of Hank Pym, too...

Absorbing man !!!!!!!!! Lol jp.. I'd sat some random Villain who's supposed to give Hulk a run for his money....,.. Until he gets pissed and squashes him !

If he plays Hank Pym I might cry. I like Vin Diesel but he is not right for Hank. At all.

Posted by Ninjashroom

He'll play Luke Cage, obviously.

Scarlet Witch?

It's already been said, but I think he was hinting at playing Vision with the "tunnel vision," comment.

Posted by TheManInTheShoe

Not Vision, please not Vision. Hopefully just a villain. Don't get me wrong, I want Vision to be in Avengers but played by a different actor.

Edited by Lvenger

I'm not terribly pleased with this. Vin Diesel's acting credentials don't impress me too much.

Posted by TDK_1997

I really hope that he doesn't play Hank.

Posted by nickxfrye

Please, God in heaven don't let him play Hank! If he has to be in the movie I would be okay with Vision I suppose but not Hank. Never Hank.

Edited by Yung ANcient One

I think he would be a great Vision. They just need to use CGI on his Face so it looks like a actual robot face and not a human face. Again Vision having a iRobot face would be perfect IMO. I think it would be HILARIOUS if he played Luke Cage. I would still trash talk about the idea but I would laugh my 4$$ off if they did that.

Am I the only one that thinks a Bald Wonder Man is kind of weird? Then again he looks AWEsome as Riddick so he can pull it off. Hank Pym, please that's obviously a ruse. I mean a Buff Hank Pym, C'mon son.

What if it is all a Ruse and he won't be in the Avengers 2?

What if he is playing a totally different role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

What about him playing the Executioner?

Or playing Drax?

What if Marvel saw that the fans didn't like Batista?

What if he's playing a new character like a Chitari Super Soldier?

It's so obvious, he's going to play the only logical choice for the villain of Avengers 2; the Space Phantom.

I think it's pretty much set in stone that Benicio Del Toro is going to be Thanos. I'd say probably Vision.

I certainly hope he isn't Hank Pym. In case you may have forgotten, Ant-Man is getting his own movie and you know they're going to use the same actor and I just can't see Vin Diesel as a scientific genius. He's too muscular too. Hank isn't a super buff guy.

I think Vin Diesel can pull it off. He did another robotic character before with Iron Giant.

you guys are crazy, he's Scarlet Witch, duh

For the love of god I hope he plays Dom Toretto. I would love if these universes would collide, and Paul Walker would show up and be like "I almost had you, dude."

Absorbing Man would be perfect

Edited by weaponx

Absorbing man would be good. I am not too happy at the idea of Vision but that seems a legit possibility. My question is about Thanos... so in Avengers they showed Thanos. How are they going to change that image of him by using an actor to fill the role (or do you think they will use the same cgi face over the actor??)?

Posted by Trevel8182

@g_money_christmas: From what I hear Benicio will be playing the Collector

my guess for Mr.Diesel is Thanos.

NO ONE! Vin Diesel f*ckng sucks at acting.

He's probably going to be the Space Phantom, if that poster says anything

Posted by jorelliot

I honestly can't think of a single character he'd be good for.

He'll play Luke Cage, obviously.

I seriously hope not. I know Diesel has described himself as "ethnically ambiguious" and is a person of color, but I don't think he looks anything like Luke Cage. I think Luke Cage needs to be played by an African American.

Posted by Matchstick

Namor. He could definitely pull off Namor.

Posted by Cgoodness

I herd they are looking around for someone to play ironfist, if Diesel can do what Downey Jr did for iron man then I'm all for him as ironfist. Idk though because Marvel has a only alright record with big name actors, Ben Affleck as Daredevil was meh, Snipes as blade was pretty good, Maguire as spiderman was mediocre, Jackman as wolverine was decent, The kid from that 70s show as venom was bad, Nicolas Cage as ghost rider was terrible. But what I'm mostly looking for is Reynolds as Deadpool in the Deadpool movie, usually Reynolds plays a cocky and smart@$$ character so idk how he will fit with Deadpools character.

NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO vin diesel as hank pump is a massive miscast.

Beneicio is going to play Adam Warlock or something like that. Thanos is still up for grabs.

Sticking with Mr. Clean joining the avengers

Anyone who suggests T'challa or Luke Cage should slap themselves.

Posted by spidershamrock

No offense to him but he can't play the genius persona of hank pym, he is a muscle guy. Vision maybe, wonder man's a good shout or maybe a villian specifically designed for the movie

Posted by Protoflash

Sadly I think he's teasing hank pym pretty hard. Seeing as he's standing in front of a poster that says "Check out the new giant man!" Given he could be trying to throw us off. And god do I hope he is. If you ask me vin diesel just doesnt belong in the marvel cinematic universe.

Posted by Ninjablade09

Ultron?

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Please be Vision.

Posted by novi_homines

He will be Vision.

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

I really doubt it is Hank Pym (that would be horrible). Vin Diesel playing a genius doesn't seem possible to me.

The Avengers poster is of Avengers #2. That means he'll appear in Avengers 2.
