Vin Diesel Ruins Chances To Join The MCU By Revealing Meeting With Marvel
Vin Diesel has taken to Facebook to tease fans that he's been offered a meeting with Marvel. I have no clue who they'd want Vin to play but it's likely his gravelly voice is what they're after. However, Vin's Riddick co-star Dave Bautista recently took a lead role in Guardians of The Galaxy so the studio might be a fan of the upcoming sci-fi action flick.
One thing I've learned about Marvel's casting process is that if you talk about it they will cut you loose very quickly. Many actors have been quick to talk about auditioning or meeting for parts in upcoming films only to find themselves out of the running. It's likely they forgot to read their testing contracts which would include clauses of not speaking to press or termination. They enjoy announcing these sorts of things with selected outlets and trades. Recently, Marvel decided to take a page from LucasFilm and announce major news from their own website. The first news to test those waters was RDJ signing on for Avengers 2 and Avengers 3.
