This week, Vin Diesel managed to get the Internet buzzing when he posted this image on his Facebook page of himself with an Inhumans t-shirt on.

Am I inhuman? No. My personal trainer can attest to that.
Many, myself included, began to speculate if Mr. Groot might be playing the role of silent superhero, Black Bolt, in the Marvel Studios movie, “Inhumans,” due out in 2018.

If he is cast in the part, I approve. One, Vin Diesel has the look and demeanor to play the character. For anyone that questions this, I recommend you take a look at those "Riddick" movies; where Diesel plays a dangerous, silent brute. Two, Black Bolt in the comics has always been portrayed as a man in his 40s, which is right around Diesel’s actual age. Three, because Black Bolt can destroy cities with just a whisper, Vin Diesel will never talk; which is the main complaint many lodge against his acting.

I know what you’re thinking, ‘But… The same actor can’t play two Marvel movie heroes!’ This is where I remind you about this guy, Chris Evans. You know, Human Torch and Captain America. It seemed to work out pretty well in that instance.

He's hot either way. IMO.
Now, if you are completely lost and this is the first time you are hearing about “Inhumans” and Black Bolt. Here’s a little recap:

The “Inhumans” refers to a race of people that live on a small isolated island with a variety of super human abilities. The Inhumans were created by the Kree from an early evolution of Homo Sapiens on Earth. They were made to be a super soldiers against the Kree enemy, the Skrull.  Soon, the Inhumans created their own society and lived in seclusion from the rest of the earth’s population.

The Inhumans have been around the comic Marvel Universe for quite a long time, and much like Namor and his Atlanteans, they really only interact with the likes of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, or Avengers, when their land are threatened.  The Inhumans are also a fairly regal people and are led by their King Black Bolt and his Royal Family.

Black Bolt and his chatty family. Rub it in, guys.
If you’d like to know more about the “Inhumans” I would recommend picking up the Marvel Knight’s “Inhumans” TPB from 1998. It collects the 12-issue run by writer Paul Jenkins (Hellblazer, Peter Parker: Spiderman, Incredible Hulk) and artist Jae Lee (X-Men, The Dark Tower, Avengers). It’s a good place to start with the Inhumans in the modern era and will probably be the basis for what Marvel is planning to do with the forthcoming movie. It has a great story with rich characters and beautiful panels that suck you into the Inhumans’s homeland of Attilan.

The Inhumans homeland, Attilan. I think Skrillex is playing there next week.
Here is the synopsis for the 12-issue TPB:
The Inhumans have always lived in peaceful seclusion on their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. But now their fragile kingdom is under attack from without and within!
You can find out more about the book on Amazon. Use either link.
The “Inhumans” have been involved in some of the biggest Marvel events over the years including events revolving around the Infinity Gauntlet, so they are worth getting some background on.  Also, if you are keeping up with “Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.” on ABC, you may see some Inhumans in the not too distant future.

I think he is the best actor to play the part. He looks the part to begin with. All these subtle announcements leave us very excited to see this movie in 2018. I wonder if they are starting the production now. I have always loved marvel stories turned into movies. I am not one of those who would always say the movies can't make it to the level of the original. Of course they are a different medium.

I love Marvel Comics and I love Vin Diesel. He's a great choice to play Black Bolt, if it's true. Anyway no conflict since he didn't appear in Guardians of the Galaxy - just his awesome voice as Groot. Marvel movies have become an annual thing for me and for millions of fans around the world. Inhumans is coming out in 2018 - that's too long but in Marvel universe that's just a blink of an eye.
