It looks like those talks Vin Diesel had with Marvel are about to pay off. Deadline has reported that the "Fast and Furious" actor is in talks to voice Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy," possibly nixing all hope that the actor would play Vision in "Avengers: Age of Ultron."
The news broke on Diesel's Facebook page, which has actually been a constant source of information regarding the actor's Marvel talks. A picture of Groot appeared as the actor's cover page before being taken down. Could it be that the actor put it up, assuming that the big reveal would happen this past weekend during Marvel's presentation at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California? Well, that announcement wasn't made, and the picture is now gone.
Groot would be a good choice for Diesel; in fact, it's one of the five roles we have previously pegged him for. »
