At SDCC, Marvel Studios Announced their movie lineup all the way up to the year 2020, and among those movies, was the title Inhumans. Scheduled for a 2019 release date, that left us with alot of time to wait and see Attilan’s Royal family on the big screen. However, there had been rumors floating around that the film was being cancelled altogether due to disputes between the movie and TV divisions of Marvel. Luckily, that rumor has been proved false thanks to a few insiders. And as if to prove the rumors even more false, Vin Diesel spoke out on the possibility of him being involved with the movie somehow.
Everyone knows how much Vin Diesel loves to tease the internet with the possibility of him being involved in movie roles. During an interview at Comic-Con 2013, he spoke out on being involved in a project with Marvel, only calling it a “fresh IP” at the time. That time around, he was talking about being the voice of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, which went on to be a success in the box office, and in the minds of fans. Then, about a week after the theatrical release of GOTG, he posted this picture on
his Facebook page:A couple months passed, and he posted this picture of himself next:
Obviously this would leave people wondering what his involvement in the movie was, and Vin elaborated on that in an interview earlier this week with io9 while talking about his most recent film, The Last Witch Hunter. Throughout the interview, he was bound to get asked about his involvement in any other Marvel projects. He then goes on to confirm that he has been talking to Marvel, and that this next role would have him not speak at all, just have his presence be used. Unless we’re wrong, that sounds a lot like Black Bolt, the Inhuman king that chooses to stay silent, due to the fact that he can destroy a city with just a whisper.
The question we want an answer to is if Diesel is an actual shoe-in for the role, or if he is just throwing us all off really well. All that can be confirmed at the moment is that he has talked to Marvel about it, and that he has some knowledge of Black Bolt and the Inhumans. Only time will tell if he will actually be cast in the movie when it releases in 2019.
You can catch Vin Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter, in theaters on October 23rd.
Inhumans is scheduled to release on July 12th, 2019.
