I don't care what people say, I like Vin Diesel. He makes me laugh. When talking to MTV for his latest movie, the subject of playing a superhero came up.
For those outside of the U.S. (that MTV won't let watch):
“I would be more apt to play a villain,” Diesel revealed to MTV News. “[I'd like to play] the protagonist of a story that is also like a Marvel villain — like Doctor Doom or something.
"I have some superhero favorites,” Diesel admitted. “I talked to ['The Surrogates' director] Jonathan Mostow about ‘Sub-Mariner,’ which could be interesting because of its World War II-New York connection.
"They don't need to put me in tights to get that superhero feel. They kind of just say, 'Why double up?'"
Is he saying that because of his build, he already exudes the sense of being a superhero?
What do you think? Could or should Vin play a comic character? There was mention that he was up for Daredevil back when Affleck took the role (he chose XXX instead). Is there someone you could see him playing?
