Vin Diesel Hints at His Involvement in Marvel’s Adaptation of THE INHUMANS

Vin Diesel‘s unwavering self-promotion is at turns oddly endearing and incredibly frustrating.  I admire his conviction at making another Riddick movie, and gobsmacked that he thinks anyone other than him wants a third xXx.  His desire to be in a Marvel movie was also indefatigable as he dropped hints like saying the studio wanted to meet with him, and the two might “merge brands” in 2016.  But so far, his collaboration with the studio has extended to Diesel voicing a character who only says “I am Groot.”  He did a fine job of it, but Diesel wants more.  He wants to be Inhuman.

Hit the jump for more on Vin Diesel possibly starring in Marvel’s The Inhumans.

Cut back to over three years ago, and there were rumors that Marvel was interested in adapting their property The Inhumans.  The story revolves around a group of characters who were created by alien experiments on primitive homo-sapiens.  The alien race behind the experiments, the Kree, abandoned their work and the Inhumans went on to form a society of their own, which is led by the king Black Bolt and his family Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and the canine Lockjaw.

This past weekend, Diesel posted the following on his Facebook:

As you’ll note, he capitalized “Inhuman”.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Marvel is still hard at work on this one, and if it may have fresh life considering the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, another group of strange characters with no name recognition.  The studio also has release dates to fill, and part of Marvel’s continued success will come from not only sequels, but also creating fresh properties.  The world might not be ready for a female-led superhero movie, but it could be ready for a film where a team of royal alien experiments are led by a guy whose voice can destroy cities.

It will be interesting to see if this project has actual validity or if Diesel is yet again publicly campaigning to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • Hmmm

    If he were to play Black Bolt there is something rather ingenious about him voicing one character and physically playing a some-what mute character.

    • jay

      yea i mean they’re already doing that with Paul Bettany who voices Jarvis and now is physically playing the Vision in the Avengers 2.

      • Vulcan

        no, what he means is that the Black Bolt is mostly silent, and doesn’t talk much. So Diesel would be pretty much be playing one character who doesn’t talk much, and voicing another that only says four words.

      • jay

        oh ok got it.

      • Theodore Trout

        Which is weird ’cause his greatest asset is that bucket full of rocks being dragged down a gravel road sound that functions as his voice.

        From what Paul Bettany said. Its in the Marvel contract that you cannot play different characters in their universe. Bettany was only able to do it because J.A.R.V.I.S. and Vision are related somehow, if not the same

      • Nerdgasm

        Yes and Kevin Fiege said at Comicon that Vin could actually play Black Bolt. Cause of the fact that VOICE talents won’t be counted.

      I don’t want him to ruin black bolt for me

        I’m sure he’d make an epic Black Bolt. No-one’s suggesting he’s trying out for Gorgon, are they ? That’s because BB springs immediately to mind when someone says Vin Diesel and Inhumans in the same sentence.

  • MCP

    Meh… Getting Comic Book overkill it seems. I am happy to see all of these properties getting made, just getting to much at the same time.

  • Romsy

    If he plays Black Bolt that would a good thing. He wont have to emote whatsoever since Black Bolt doesn’t talk. Because lets face it, Vin showed about all the range he has in GotG.

      anyone who thinks Vin Diesel is a bad actor should watch this short film he wrote, directed, and stared in called “Multi-Facial”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBeuyjlbes8

        Is this a porn? Not complaining or saying I won’t watch, but I need to know if I should tilt the screen away from co-workers.

      • shbsdyhb

        Lol naw its not porn. It’s an excellent short film, based on Vin Diesals experience trying to get roles in New York.

      • Luciano Jose Marin

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Yes, that was the joke. Good thing you said that, shbsdyhb was saying Luciano didn’t get jokes about sex, with the very clear suggestion that it was because you’ve never had sex. But you showed him by explaining the punchline just now.

    Vin’s one of the best in the business when it comes to self-promotion (The Rock is 1st IMO) but sometimes he’s blinded by what a few of his fans think in regards to his prior work needing continuation (XXX 3???). Although I enjoy his work he needs to be braver and start looking into new territory. It’s funny how he did a 180 from when first got started by stating he didn’t believe in doing sequels and that’s about all he does now. I think Babylon A.D. and Chronicles of Riddick’s failures at the BO sort of humbled him back into doing FF again. But he should be smart w his new reinvigorated star power and do something exciting again and not fall back into formulaic franchise films like FF7 or another Riddick film (which I loved 1 & 3). Guy has more range than most people think (Saving Private Ryan, Knockaround Guys & The Pacifier) and can be great w the right talent around him. This might just that type of project that he needs as Groot was him doing voice work for a character that says one line in the whole film over and over.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Vin Diesel is the worst. and Groot was the most boring part of guardians. they could of done with out the character and it would of been fine, but instead he just slowed the film down. and the scene with dead Groot dancing was the worst.

    The guy has had a comeback, and as much as I love Groot, I couldn’t imagine that he would sign a contract with Marvel to voice a character that says one line over and over again. I figured that the contract would be for Groot, and another character (was thinking Thanos at the time).

    He has the build for Black Bolt. And, he won’t have to say a word.
