Marvel President Kevin Feige Talks Vin Diesel Casting
As you probably already know, Vin Diesel had a meeting with Marvel Studios, and Diesel has stated that it went very well. There's no confirmation yet on whom he'll be playing, but when Marvel president Kevin Feige was asked about it this is what he said:
"Well, here's what I will tell you about Vin. And I'll be very honest with you. We did a press day on the Captain America set last week or something. The very first question was, 'So how did the meeting with Vin Diesel go?' I went, 'Here's the funny thing, it hasn't happened yet. It happens at 3 p.m. today.' And they went, 'Oh, really?' And it did and he came by and met. So, I'll say two things: One, there's nothing to announce with Vin. Vin is an amazing guy and an amazing personality."
He then went on to say that no announcements will be made on the casting at Disney's upcoming D23 Expo either.
"No. It's so far ahead it may not even exist. So, there's nothing to announce. But, I love Vin and he's an amazing personality. Look how much attention he's gotten for a meeting. He's incredibly shrewd. He's got a Riddick movie that I can't wait to see. And the Fast & Furious franchise, in addition to Vin, is a franchise I admire a lot for turning the sixth and next year the seventh into the biggest and most popular one. As far as a piece of it? Could someday we do a Luke Cage: Hero for Hire in that kind of vein? Totally."
I'm looking forward to the day where we find out who he will play, and I just can't help but can't think that it's going to be Thanos. I know a lot of people think it's going to be Vision, but I doubt that will happen.
