is an awfully busy guy. After receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame the other day, the actor also has a big release this September with his passion project, Riddick, as well as working on 's Furious 7. However, for MCU fans, the fact that he'll be playing Groot in 's Guardians of the Galaxy has sparked simultaneous applause and outrage. Will Diesel just be a voice? Well, not really. While promoting Riddick, the action star, actor, and all around good guy had this to say:

"It'll be voiceover, MoCap and all of that stuff," Diesel says. "It's going to be super cool."

But that's not the really big news. While speaking to Rebecca Ford at THR, Diesel revealed that he was actually approached by Marvel for a new Phase 3 IP, which begs the question: Could Vin have been Doctor Strange? It would have been slightly bizarre, but welcome casting if you ask me. Take a look at the video evidence below:

What future Marvel role would you guys like to see Vin take on? Let me know below and on Twitter.
