Back in June, RoboPanda shared the news at Gamma Squad that Vin Diesel informed his trillion Facebook fans through a photo of him on one of those fresh water jetpacks that Marvel had a requested a meeting with him. The star of The Pacifier wrote: “… no idea what for… haha, you probably know better than me…” and that was either a reference to the infamous fan photos of Diesel as the Avengers character, The Vision, or it meant that he can’t read.
Either way, Diesel had that meeting with Marvel yesterday, and while he didn’t reveal any actual details, he did post the above image, and let’s just go ahead and accept that he’s going to play the Vision in The Avengers 2.
Marvel meeting today…
Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed…
P.s. Thanks to Our page, for pushing to make it happen… you know I get tunnel vision with my work… and after that meeting today… wow!
See? He even made sure to include the word vision in his response, and you could argue that it’s just a coincidence or that he’s not clever enough to purposely make that reference, but this man has tricked the entire world into shoveling him millions of dollars for movies about cars that go VROOOOOOM while the baddest gang of best bros mumbles its way through adventures.
So let’s just quit playing coy and accept that Vin Diesel will play an android in Marvel’s The Avengers 2. It was basically the role he was born for.
