Under all those rippling muscles, beneath that gravely voice, Vin Diesel is just a geek like us. Except for being rich and famous, and probably the muscles and voice too... Anyway, the point is he loves comic books, video games, and RPGs and if he were to get involved with a movie project about one of those subjects, he would bring a certain amount of real passion to the role.
Today, he announced on his Facebook page that Marvel requested a meeting with him.
"Marvel has requested a meeting. No idea what for... haha, you probably know better than me..."
Though several Marvel pictures are already in the midst of filming, Guardians of the Galaxy is still being cast, plus Marvel has several unannounced movies already scheduled in the coming years. Could he be voicing Groot or Rocket Raccoon in the upcoming GoG movie? Or perhaps a starring role in a future Marvel film?
Whatever it is, I have a feeling that he won't be posting the results of the discussion anytime soon, so we have plenty of time to speculate. What's your guess?

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
