While speaking to IGN during promotional rounds for his upcoming The Last Witch Hunter, actor Vin Diesel gave fans a sneak peak of his take on Black Bolt, the leader of Marvel’s Inhumans. Diesel has himself fueled rumors and has all but admitted to the fact that he will be playing the character in the upcoming film scheduled to be released in 2019 (Despite several unconfirmed rumors to the contrary).
Speaking of the project, Vin Diesel thinks his casting in the role would be genius. Saying
“It would be… put it this way, when Kevin Feige started talking to me about… who would ever think? A voice for one thing and presence for another would be pretty genius – it’d be pretty genius. Whenever my father sends me an email, at the end of it he says ‘stay human’ – and it’s cool and beautiful, but what is he really trying to say. Is he trying to say I’ve been affected by Terrigen Mist? Does he want to cocoon me again?”
At this point, unless Marvel Studios decides to throw fans a curveball, it appears Vin Diesel would definitely be playing the Silent One. Be sure to watch Vin Diesel’s “Black Bolt Audition” in the video above and leave your thoughts in the comments!
