Vin Diesel is very engaged with his fans on Facebook, where he has teased his upcoming roles that might be shrouded in secrecy, like when he posted a hint about voicing Groot in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy before it was officially announced.
Now, the Fast and Furious actor has dropped a hint for a much bigger role in a Marvel movie.
Diesel updated his Facebook cover photo yesterday to a black and white image of himself wearing an Inhumans shirt, with the words “ARE YOU INHUMAN?” in the backdrop, alluding to his involvement in Marvel’s planned Inhumans film.
Here’s the cover image and status Diesel posted yesterday (the cover image has since been changed):
If we go by the actor’s track record, chances are, he’s been cast in Inhumans. It was just back in August that Diesel was creating a buzz about a role for a “fresh IP” with Marvel Studios and he even posted a Facebook message to his fans mentioning the Inhumans.
It seems like a natural casting choice for Diesel to take the role of Blackagar Boltagon aka Black Bolt, the ruler of the Inhumans and head of the royal family. With Diesel posting on Facebook so openly about Inhumans, could an official announcement of casting be imminent and if so will he be declared ruler?
Marvel’s Inhumans is slated for the studio’s Phase III with a release date of November 2, 2018.
