Marvel Plays Down Vin Diesel Rumours
Kevin Fiege says Fast & Furious star's possible role 'may not even exist'...
Marvel Studios boss Vin Diesel.
Speculation has been mounting regarding the Fast & Furious actor and a possible role in Guardians Of The Galaxy or Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
But Fiege has told fans not to get too excited - and paid Diesel a backhanded compliment for his self-publicity skills.
Speaking to Huffington Post, he declared: "There's nothing to announce with Vin. No. It's so far ahead it may not even exist. So, there's nothing to announce.
"But, I love Vin and he's an amazing personality. Look how much attention he's gotten for a meeting. He's incredibly shrewd. He's got a Riddick movie that I can't wait to see.
"And the Fast and Furious franchise, in addition to Vin, is a franchise I admire a lot for turning the sixth and next year the seventh into the biggest and most popular one.
"As far as a piece of it, could someday we do a Luke Cage: Hero For Hire in that kind of vein? Totally."
