Watch: Vin Diesel Show Off Black Bolt Impression; Teases Adam Warlock?


On more than one occasion Vin Diesel has teased playing Black Bolt in the Marvel Studios Inhumans movie with the latest being that Vin Diesel recommended his Witch Hunter co-star Rose Leslie for a role and teased that his "presence" would be used for another character.

Now while in London speaking with IGN, Black Bolt is brought up again with Vin Diesel offering his impression.

"If I said one word, I would level all of London," Vin Diesel offered in the above video.

Vin Diesel continued with mention about talking with both Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige as well as his father about super hero roles.

"It would be... put it this way, when Kevin Feige started talking to me about... who would ever think?" Diesel offered. "A voice for one thing and presence for another would be pretty genius – it'd be pretty genius."

It should be mentioned that Vin Diesel as Black Bolt isn't confirmed (he could very well be playing Lockjaw in some form), and note that Vin Diesel didn't specify what Feige was talking about, but check out what his father told him, which may actually hint at Adam Warlock.

"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?" 

Relative to the character of Adam Warlock is that Warlock is an artificial human who was born/reborn in a cocoon. Warlock is also quite the presence in the Marvel Cosmic universe, wouldn't you say?

Inhumans has a July 12, 2019 release.
