He says what he believes and he says what's on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it's all there." "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" co-stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. »

There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing."

And if it doesn't win an Oscar, Diesel knows why. "We were successful in one-upping the action sequences, and adding an interesting dynamic to the world. But what the world won't anticipate is how emotionally powerful the movie is," he explained. "The head of the studio, Ron Meyer, often said when 'Fast 5' or 'Fast 6' came out, »
