Marvel's Kevin Feige Says Vin Diesel's 'Guardians' Role Is 'Close'

Marvel Studios CEO spoke with The Huffington Post today about the current Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy rumors and here is what he said:
We last spoke at Comic Con and his name was in the press then, so I wasn't going to bring his name up again but ... Vin Diesel, what a hoot.

[Laughs] Yes.

He was walking around on stilts.

He's got to keep his 50 million followers, or whatever it is, entertained. It's pretty impressive.
What is he doing?

Well, I think he's filming "Fast 7" right now -- and occasionally filming himself.

He's made so much news with this, I had to double check this morning to confirm that there still hasn't been an official announcement that he's a part of "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Yeah, I think it's close. I think it's close to being official for the Groot character. But, not 100 percent yet.
OK, so he's not nuts.

Well, I didn't say that [laughs]. But, no, and this did not exist when we spoke at Comic Con. That is where we sort of found the potential to do something.

Why is Joseph Gordon-Levitt's name always come up when a new Marvel movie is being cast? This has happened three times now.

Well, sometimes it's because we are legitimately talking, and sometimes it's just because he's a prominent actor out there now. And lots of rumors surround prominent actors.

Paul Rudd's name is out there for Ant-Man. That would be fun if it's true. I have no idea if it's true.

Well, nothing is true yet. I like Paul Rudd, too.

Guardians of the Galaxy hits August 2014!
