From Iron Giant to Giant Tree?

Leave it to Facebook to drop the news. With both Comic Con and D23 over, one would think Marvel would have announced Vin Diesel’s role in the Marvel Universe. Well Diesel may have spilled the beans already. On August 11th, Diesel changed his cover photo to that of Groot (seen here) from Guardians of the Galaxy.

No official word has been given. What do you think Maniacs? Diesel for Groot?

Synopsis: Based on the Marvel comic book that first appeared in 1969, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is produced by Kevin Feige, directed by James Gunn from a story by Nicole Perlman and Gunn and screenplay by James Gunn, and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly and Glenn Close. The film is slated for an August 1, 2014 release.

 Nice to see Diesel Branch out. I will root for him. Hope he doesn't turn in a wooden performance.

This leaves only the announcement of who's going to be Rocket Racoon, I think.

I don't believe it.  Every month, Vin has posted an image of a marvel character, that starts speculation of who he is gonna be.  Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of him saying "I am Groot" for 2 hours, but I think Marvel is too smart to let a "big" name like Diesel, who they have been teasing for months, to slip on a facebook post. I still have a feeling that he is gonna be either Vision or Ultron.

Funny, how everyone is hoping he plays either an android, a robot or a tree.  That goes to show his acting chops!!
