While we all know that Marvel Studios has cancelled ‘The Inhumans‘ and a new series based on the concept is now set to happen on ABC, Vin Diesel (‘Guardians of the Galaxy’,’Riddick’) is still wishing it would push forward. We’ve seen him teasing the concept for quite some time and being able to go from Groot with one line to another hero that would almost never speak really seems to fit into Diesel’s wheelhouse when it comes to superheroes.
Diesel let his thoughts known during an interview on a promotional tour for ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ when asked about his thoughts of the Inhumans project being turned into a television series:
“I think Marvel should never—I don’t think Marvel should abandon their opportunity to make a film out of it. I think it could be a huge, huge saga, and if I had more time I would go over to Marvel and have that very conversation. But I think it would be a big mistake for Marvel to abandon their ambitions or their objective or their goals of making it into a film, because it would make such a cool universe.”
As the Royal Family already appears to be in casting for the television series it doesn’t seem that we will have a chance for Diesel to end up as Black Bolt now unless Marvel decided to completely separate the films from television.
Are you sad when thinking about the fact that we could have gotten Vin Diesel as Black Bolt in ‘The Inhumans’ or do you feel that the characters will be a better fit for the small screen? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
