Vin Diesel is not a man that lets down his fans.
So when they demanded he get into a Marvel movie, Vin did NOT turn down the meeting! He says:
"I get the call, I go down to meet with Marvel- a great meeting! It was even talking about something so big I can't even talk about because it's like the merging of brands in a way. Which I won't get into.
But that was something way way way way way way way way down the road."
Whoa! Now we gotta know! It was actually his teasing of the meeting that led to Vin's role in Guardians Of The Galaxy! Vin didn't have time to play a live action role, but there was something he was perfect for! He says:
"They wanted me to play a tree… to voice a character that historically is only known to say one line… I thought of it as an insanely fun challenge."
