Vin Diesel recently portrayed the talking tree character of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy. What’s curious is that because his role as Groot was entirely a vocal performance, Vin Diesel’s body has yet to grace the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Indeed, Diesel originally took the role of Groot, in every language that Guardians of the Galaxy appeared in, in order to appease the fans with something entertaining until he could properly appear within the movie universe, quipping that Marvel thought that he might be “Inhuman.”

With an Inhumans film set to release in 2018 as part of the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, along with a Inhumans-flavored photoshop of himself, murmurs have grown that Diesel may take on the role on an Inhuman character, such as Gorgon or even Black Bolt, the king of the Inhumans, a being capable of destroying cities by uttering a single word. The latter case would mean that Diesel’s voice belongs to the role of Groot, while his body would belong to the role of Black Bolt.

The Inhumans have already made some in-roads into the MCU, between Kree experimentation within Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and even in Guardians of the Galaxy. Indeed, the Inhumans origins are tied to Kree experiments with special mists released by “Terrigen Crystals,” as Jared Hastel saw at the conclusion of the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
