Vin Diesel has been making a lot of noise through social media about his meetings with Marvel Entertainment. All the teasing over the months finally lead up to the reveal that he will be Groot in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ which was totally unexpected news. Everyone was speculating that he’d be cast as the voice behind Ultron in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ but that didn’t pan out. Here’s the catch with this whole thing though, Diesel also claims that he original met up with Marvel to discuss a possible merging of brands with a new film property for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
My first thought on this was that there will be a crossover movie between The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy but that’s not possible if Diesel’s claims are accurate. Neither of those properties are “new” for Phase 3 which leaves the question, what’s the new property?? Marvel still have a bunch of unnamed projects on their plate through 2016 so any of those could be the new property that’s hinted out here. I just wish I have a clue as to what it could be!
