As well as voicing Groot in James Gunn’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, Vin Diesel has also confirmed that he’ll be carrying out motion capture work for the character.
Speaking to ShockTillYouDrop, The Pacifier verified, “It’ll be voiceover, MoCap and all of that stuff. It’s going to be super cool.”
In a surprising revelation, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Diesel also revealed how Marvel had initially wanted him to be the lead in a different film. He said, “What we were initially talking about was a fresh IP , and that was the focus of our conversation. A fresh IP that would come out in 2016 or 2017 to potentially launch a third phase. When we went to Comic-Con, we realised that we wanted something more immediate.”
What possible film could the actor have been initially in talks for? Marvel’s Phase Three is due to kick-off with Edgar Wright’s ANT-MAN in late 2015. Could Diesel have been in discussions for the role of Hank Pym?
