The actor currently in theaters in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' dropped a hint that has comic fans speculating on his role in a yet unannounced Marvel movie.
The actor who voiced the tree-man Groot has set off a chain reaction of rumors through a recent Facebook post. As a caption on a picture of Groot, Diesel wrote: "Vin and Marvel...... you all made it happen! I get the strange feeling that Marvel thinks I'm Inhuman... Haha."
While the capital 'I' may look out of place to the uninitiated, Marvel comics fans know the 'Inhumans' as a specific race of mutants. The concept was first introduced in an episode of 'The Fantastic Four' in 1965.
This mysterious post comes on the heels of Marvel and Disney's announcement of release dates for five currently untitled movies set to premiere between 2017 and 2019.
While rumours are already circulating on a feature devoted to Black Widow, Marvel fans are now wondering whether another of the upcoming movies might involve the Inhumans.
Some fans are being careful not to get too carried away, however, as the reference may have been nothing more than a nod by Vin Diesel to his 'Guardians of the Galaxy' character Groot, who can of course also be described as "inhuman."
