Don't believe the hype?

Well, that's what Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige seems to state in the following.

Vin Diesel has been taking to his Facebook posting images of himself after Marvel meetings, but actually from what Feige said it didn't happen yet.

Vin Diesel also said an announcement would be coming at the end of the month, with many fans thinking it could happen at the Disney D23 Expo.

That's not happening, either.

Geek Tyrant has the text of Feige explaining the situation and that there is no announcement:

Well, here's what I will tell you about Vin. And I'll be very honest with you. We did a press day on the Captain America set last week or something. The very first question was, 'So how did the meeting with Vin Diesel go?' I went, 'Here's the funny thing, it hasn't happened yet. It happens at 3 p.m. today.' And they went, 'Oh, really?' And it did and he came by and met. So, I'll say two things: One, there's nothing to announce with Vin. Vin is an amazing guy and an amazing personality.

No. It's so far ahead it may not even exist. So, there's nothing to announce. But, I love Vin and he's an amazing personality. Look how much attention he's gotten for a meeting. He's incredibly shrewd. He's got a Riddick movie that I can't wait to see. And the Fast & Furious franchise, in addition to Vin, is a franchise I admire a lot for turning the sixth and next year the seventh into the biggest and most popular one. As far as a piece of it? Could someday we do a Luke Cage: Hero for Hire in that kind of vein? Totally.
