Vin Diesel (an admitted big comics fan) admitted a few weeks ago that Marvel requested a meeting with him but didn’t offer any more info as to just what that meeting was about. Of course minds began racing about which Marvel movie franchise would the star of THE FAST & THE FURIOUS films be involved in with everything from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy to Black panther being tossed out there by speculative fans and reporters.
Then Diesel posted the above image along with this message on his Facebook page:
Marvel meeting today… Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed…P.s. Thanks to Our page, for pushing to make it happen… you know I get tunnel vision with my work… and after that meeting today… wow!
Ever wondered what major league badass super-villain Thanos (and the soon to be ultimate big bad in the Marvel Universe live action movies) would look like if he was a chick? Nope, me neither but one enterprising cosplayer did and as a result we got a pretty snazzy Lady Thanos. Click the cut to see her in all her glory.
Patton Oswalt‘s appearance on this past Thursday’s PARKS & RECREATION featured oswalt doing a fully improvised fillibuster of the Pawnee City Council using his fan-fiction of what the upcoming Disney version of STAR WARS should be like in a screed of geekily epic proportions. I have to ding him for calling the X-men’s plane a Quinjet though.
But he was right about one thing…when you are looking for A-list super heroes the first name on the list should be Moon Knight.
