Earlier in the month, Vin Diesel revealed he was scheduled to meet with Marvel over a potential role in an undisclosed project, and from the sounds of his latest update, said meeting seems to have gone well.
The star took to Facebook to share his thoughts on the sit-down, hinting that the meeting had been fruitful without giving away exactly what was discussed.
“Marvel meeting today,” says Diesel. "Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed...P.S. Thanks to Our page, for pushing to make it happen... you know I get tunnel vision with my work... and after that meeting today... wow!"
The post was accompanied by the below image of Diesel at the Marvel offices, rather prominently positioned next to a vintage cover for The Avengers…
That could of course be a total coincidence, but it’s not too outlandish to interpret it as a hint from Diesel as to his potential involvement in The Avengers 2
. While Giant-Man is fairly prominent in that image, we can't imagine Diesel playing Ant-Man (the big fella being the gigantic version of the occasionally insect-sized sized scientist).
The Avengers 2 opens in the UK on 1 May 2015.
