    I support Vin as Groot, but he also needs to be Sub-Mariner.

    "I AM ... disappoint."

    Sorry, but I still think he'd be a fantastic Thanos. Vin needs an iconic villain role. His physical presence and voice demand it.
    Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me are people that think Final Crisis is good.

    Waste of his talent to be the voice of Groot "I ...am...groot" - repeat.

    I hope Diesel gets the other role as well whatever it may have been.
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    Diesel has so much stuff going on right now, that being a part of a Marvel movie in exchange for only a few minutes of voice-over work probably has the most interesting investment/reward ratio of any role in any Marvel movie, except maybe Stan's cameos. It's not like he needs the screen time to make a name for himself, like Dave Bautista (Drax) does.

    Why would you turn down a role you don't have to do anything but sit in a studio for?

    I can already imagine him saying "I am Groot!" in the same voice as the Iron Giant. I think he's perfect for that role!

    I think they said it was a MoCap performance. Which means he'd be on set with all the other actors. Just wearing a leotard full of shiny dots and stuff.

    Actually it's the perfect use for his "talent" since he's a terrible actor
