It should have been called ‘No Homo: The Movie.’
Vin Diesel, whose entire career feels like homage to the musclebound machismo of the 1980s, has possibly reached the peak – by which I mean, nadir – of his search for the meaning of virility. ‘Riddick,’ the overdue, and largely unwanted, third installment in Diesel’s first big film series, is so full of tough-guy overcompensation that it makes the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies seem like understated character studies by comparison.

Ever since it was announced that Vin Diesel was "in talks" to join 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as Groot, it seemed like the casting was a done deal and that it must have been the only reason that Diesel was meeting with Marvel (which he had teased weeks earlier). According to this recent interview, both assumptions are wrong.

After the overblown and overlong 'The Chronicles of Riddick,' it's something of a relief to see Vin Diesel's tough, sci-fi antihero return to his roots with 'Riddick.'

Not content to be involved with only two franchises, Vin Diesel has his sights set on another possible franchise opportunity. The actor is attached to 'Soldiers of the Sun,' an original sci-fi story that could very well lead to more sequels and more cash money for the action star.

'Riddick' (and the previous movies 'Pitch Black' and 'The Chronicles of Riddick') tells the tale of Richard B. Riddick (seriously!), one of the last of the Furyan race who possess the ability to see in the dark with their foggy, white eyes. But, what if instead of eyes that allowed them to see in the dark, Riddick just had googly eyes? This is a question for which we have an answer.

Vin Diesel has been very coy when it comes to details regarding his ties with Marvel. He's teased possibilities before (is he starring in 'The Avengers 2'?!), but we've still yet to get anything resembling a confirmation. Well, we have now learned exactly what Marvel film he's joining, courtesy of the man himself. Is Vin lending his voice to one of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?
