Vin Diesel indirectly confirmed that he would be playing another Marvel role aside from the "Guardians of the Galaxy's" Groot, but this time his character would be almost mute.

Diesel, famous for his action-packed and sci-fi films, had been contracted by Marvel Studios give voice to Groot, the talking and butt-kicking tree who became one of the beloved members of the "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Now, the 48-year-old actor had apparently been tapped again for another role and it is far from what he does with Groot.

In an interview with iO9, the "Fast & Furious" actor teased fans how he would join the Marvel Cinematic Universe a second time around but in a very different way.

First, he explained how giving voice to Groot have paved the way for him to play another Marvel character instead of hindering him from doing so.

In fact, he revealed that he had been made aware of talks around Marvel about him playing another Marvel character using his mere presence and not his voice which has already been used to make the talking tree an adorable member of the "Guardians."

"We've heard a lot of talk about Marvel wanting to have me play a character that doesn't have my voice. So my voice is used for Groot and my presence is used for the other character," he told the outlet.

While he did not mention it outright, Diesel's statement implies that this character he would "hypothetically" portray would be voiceless.

While iO9 is clueless on this matter, Cinema Blend has an idea as to the perfect character he should play which would not require him to speak or use his voice at all.

According to the outlet, the actor may as well spelled "Inhumans" to his interviewer as there are only a few notable Marvel characters that fit what he described and one of the best matches is Black Bolt, the leader of the Inhumans.

The outlet described Black Bolt who hides under the name "Blackagar Boltagon," as not only a powerful Inhuman but as the "king of Inhumans."

"Like the other members of his race, exposure to Terragin Mist gave him an extraordinary gift - though his is also a powerfully destructive one," the report read.

Furthermore, his powers rendered him speechless-literally-since the part of his brain responsible for his ability to speak gives him the power to harness electrons that make a mere whisper powerful enough to destroy an entire house.

"Because of this, he is forced to remain silent at all times, and goes as far as to train himself not to talk in his sleep," Cinema Blend continued.

Since Marvel is already slating a film entitled "Inhumans" for 2019, it is not impossible that Diesel is taking up a role of the Inhuman leader.
