The Vision Vin Diesel Rumor
Diesel for Avengers 2?

There is a strange internet rumor that Vin Diesel, of all people, is going to play the Vision in the Marvel Movie Universe. According to sites such as Movie Hole, IMBD, and Geek Tyrant Vin Diesel is notorious for teasing his fan on his Facebook page with his next role. The rumor started when he had recently placed a picture of Marvel Comics’ The Vision on his profile page. I personally did not see it nor can I find that it is still up (there are a lot of Vin Diesel Facebook pages).
My thoughts on the subject are:
What is Diesel’s connection to Writer/ Director Joss Whedon? That connection may shine some light on the rumor. Did they have a project together that fell through? Are they drinking buddies?
Physically Diesel fits the role (see picture), but he really doesn’t gel with the cast of actors in The Avengers.
What if he is being cast as Simon Williams (Wonder Man) in one movie only to die and come back as the Vision?
Perhaps Diesel just read a few Avengers comics and popped the Vision into his profile picture.
I thought I would give you Maniacs a chance to sound off below about your opinions on Diesel as the Vision.
