Vin Diesel Dropping Vision Hints – Will We See Him Join The Marvel Movieverse?
http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/08/17/vin-diesel-dropping-vision-hints-will-we-see-him-join-the-marvel-movieverse/

I have, in the past, been cynical about the veracity of some things posted to Facebook by Vin Diesel. For months, if not years, he teased us, then downright told us about, plans for a third Riddick film. I never expected it to happen, but it did – the film has wrapped and it won’t be long now before we see some footage.

I’m not sure, then, quite how to take his latest updates.

Diesel has added an image of Marvel comics character The Vision as his new Facebook profile picture. This image, in fact.



I don’t know who spotted it first but a few blogs have now commented on the pic. The first link out of the hat is… Unleash the Fanboy.

The Vision, as my comics-challenged mind understands it, is some kind of artificial human, created by an evil robot. He has a mind attained from scanning somebody’s brain, and he has the power to control just how solid his matter is. Not in the sense that he melts, but more that he can turn wispy and intangible. I think he could go a bit ghost like, stand inside you and then turn solid again, messing you up bad.

Diesel’s update might be nothing more than a bit of fanboy baiting, or it might somehow be him hinting that he’s in the frame for the part.

Or, and this is what I consider the most likely, it could be an effort to generate for himself, and to perhaps get himself at least considered for the role, should it ever even open up.

Since the picture, Disel has updated with a comment that might suggest he was playing some kind of prank, though it’s really almost as vague as him posting the image in the first place:

Note to self… Haha… P.s. Thanks for the positive energy…

Prank Haha or self congratulatory Haha? Elated Haha or cynical Haha? Perhaps I’d have a better grasp on how to read this if I wasn’t imagining those words in the voice of The Iron Giant.

One might guess that the as-yet untitled Avengers sequel would be the best fit for the character, though he could be set to turn up anywhere, especially in those infamous end-credits button scenes.

If Marvel really are looking to fill the role of The Vision right now, it would likely be in Iron Man 3 that they’d want to introduce him, what with the man-machine themes of that film’s Extremis-derived storyline.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Vin Diesel posted a picture to Facebook. He’s been pretty honest with this stuff in the past, and seems to be quite a sensible chap, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a chain-yanking side to him somewhere.

b) A liar who is a fan who can't admit it to himself or others."

interesting.  If true, Marvel could do worse than to pick him up, though it seems like he's a candidate for Sub-Mariner as well...

The Rock for Sub Mariner...Vin could be the Vision, or several other characters...

I'd say Rock or Daniel Dae Kim for Namor.

I'd love to see the Rock as Doc Savage in a franchise where Doc's mix parentage was established. 
I agree Daniel Dae Kim could make a good Namor but after I saw Transporter 2 I thought the actor
who played the villian, Alessandro Gassman, looked like a great match physically:

As for Vin, I don't see him as the Vision.  I could see him as a re-imagined Wonder Man or perhaps
Cable.

Drax and Cable are also good calls for Vin. Heck, he could be the Punisher for that matter.  He could be a lot of characters.  I also like the Daniel Dae Kim idea for Namor.

Hopefully none of us will.
