Default Re: The Black Bolt Thread

Throwing out the first bit of speculation about casting for Black Bolt. There have been rumors to this effect for awhile now, but now that Inhumans has officially been announced, it's worth revisiting a Tweet from Vin Diesel several months ago:

"I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I'm Inhuman… Haha."

Keep in mind that Vin tweeted this fresh on the heels of the release of GOTG, and months before there was any confirmation at all of an Inhumans movie.

Also, even further back than that, Vin stated that Marvel planned to use him for a live action film --- not just the voice-acting for Groot --- later on in 2016 or 2017.

“What we were initially talking about was a fresh IP and that was the focus of our conversation, which was a fresh IP that would come out in 2016 or 2017, and potentially launch the third phase. And when we went to Comic-Con we realized that people wanted something a little more immediate…”

So, *if* Vin is lined up for Black Bolt, do you love it? Hate it? Wait and see? Want to sell somebody else for the role?


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
