Vin Diesel says Marvel has requested a mysterious meeting
Actor says he has 'no idea what for...'
Vin Diesel has revealed he is to attend a mysterious meeting with Marvel.
The actor shared the news on his Facebook wall yesterday (June 26), posting: "Marvel has requested a meeting... no idea what for... haha, you probably know better than me..."
Last summer (2012), Diesel was linked to the role of Vision in The Avengers 2 after he posted a picture of the Marvel character, a solar-powered android with numerous superhuman powers, on his Facebook wall.
At present, Marvel has several other major movie projects in the works, including Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and its new superhero ensemble piece Guardians Of The Galaxy, though most of the key roles in the latter have already been cast.
Meanwhile, Diesel is set to begin filming Fast & Furious 7 in August. Jason Statham will co-star as the main villain in the latest car chase sequel, which is scheduled for release on July 11, 2014.
Before then, Diesel will be seen in Riddick, the third instalment in the dark sci-fi saga that began with 2000's Pitch Black and continued with 2004's The Chronicles Of Riddick. It opens in cinemas on September 4 (2013) and you can watch the trailer below.
