Vin Diesel joins ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ cast

Posted: August 12, 2013 in Movies

Vin Diesel has had such an up and down career that it’s pretty comical to look through his resume of films, however, the past several years have seen Diesel’s career resurgent.   The Fast & Furious franchise has single handily put Diesel back on the map and now the actor looks to be capitalizing on his most recent success.

It’s long been rumored that Diesel, with a little prodding from the actor himself, would be lending his talents to a Marvel film in the very near future.  Some speculated that he would be playing Ant-Man in the title role, others had him as the villain in The Avengers 2, however it appears that Diesel will be lending his voice talents to next summer’s Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy.

Diesel recently posted a picture to his Facebook account of Guardian member, Groot – an alien tree character.   Now, I’m not going to pretend that I know anything about a lesser known Marvel superhero, especially one that’s a tree – but it would appear that Vin Diesel’s charming personality (sarcasm!) would fit it perfectly.

This little bit of news hasn’t exactly been confirmed by anyone at Marvel, especially director James Gunn – but it looks like it’s pretty close to being a done deal.

I’ll keep you posted.
