- Vin Diesel Stays Confusingly Cryptic regarding his involvement with the project
Diesel told the LA Times:
“The audience wanted Vin and Marvel, Vin and Marvel. But I’m too busy to do a six-month role. So what Marvel came up with was really interesting,”
“The audience wants Marvel and I to do something, and I don’t know why it’s so important. For six months, I wasn’t able to answer this growing request.”
Diesel’s reply to which role he will portray:
“As an actor, not everything has to be the most obvious choice. And sometimes, the best thing you can do — as far as Steven Spielberg and his advice — is to defy expectations,” “So if everybody thinks you’re going to go for this one thing, and you flip it entirely and go for the strangest Marvel character, it’s interesting. And when something is interesting, it’s inspiring.”
He commented on the picture of “Groot”, posted on his Facebook page over the weekend:
“If somebody sends me a book of conceptual art that’s the best character design work I’ve ever seen — I’m not kidding, I see that and I want to be a little cryptic.”
