We know that Vin Diesel had a meeting with Marvel Studios with the actor stating an announcement would be forthcoming.

However, then Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige set the record straight stating there would be no announcement.

Well, that hasn't stopped Vin Diesel from plugging himself, as the actor now hints at the role that looks to have been discussed; that is assuming he is telling the truth because, apparently, Diesel posted an image of himself on his Facebook stating the Marvel Studios meeting went well when it hadn't happened yet.

Regardless, the latest regarding Vin Diesel and his Marvel Studios future is something to do with a love story, which could be looked at as a big clue to his potential character.

Vin Diesel tells EW, "Marvel was excited about bring a different kind of relationship, a different kind of love story, I guess kind of inspired from the Dom-Letty relationship, into the Marvel universe."

Marvel Cosmic fans will note that a "different kind of love story" could mean Thanos' obsession with Death. In the comic books, Death is an abstract being who is depicted as a female wearing a robe, and at times, a skull-face, who doesn't give the Mad Titan the time of day. In turn, Thanos continually tries to court Mistress Death through his acts of violence and murder. The villain from the mid-credits scene in The Avengers movie will next be seen in the James Gunn-directed Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Another possibility of course could be one that Vin Diesel seems more excited to play and that is with the Vision. With Scarlet Witch appearing in The Avengers 2, Vision, a robot, would fit the "different kind of love story" theme quite well. Diesel previously posted an image of Vision on his Facebook.
