I don’t know you guys but I loved!
After a minor backlash as Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman, it looks as though ‘Fast and Furious’ co-star Vin Diesel has decided to show his support.
Everyone remembers the enormous outcry of DC fans when Ben Affleck was cast as the all-new Batman. And while the recent news of Gal Gadot nabbing the role of Wonder Woman wasn’t quite so controversial, it was still met with scepticism. Rushing to her defence, it looks as though Vin Diesel supports his pal Gal… and thinks she’ll make an excellent Wonder Woman.
Taking to Facebook in support of his pal, Vin Diesel left this message of congratulations… and gave us a little background on her recruitment to the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise.
“In 2008, she sent in a self made video audition for FF4. Two weeks later, she became Gisele in Our saga…”
“Now, she is Wonder Woman… so proud of you angel.”
Posting an image of Gadot alongside her mother, Diesel added: “Yeah, to the left… that’s Wonder Mom.”
“P.S. Acuérdate… believe in yourself, for it’s costs you nothing and often leads to great things.”
A touching message from her fellow co-star and despite the fact that he’s set to appear as Groot in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ it’s nice to see that he’s pleased for his fellow superhero. And obviously rather proud of Gadot’s accomplishment.
Of course, whether or not she’s any good in the role remains to be seen. But I have to admit, I’m becoming more accustomed to the idea by the day. And I get the feeling she’ll put in a solid performance as everyone’s favourite Amazonian. Now we just have to see what she looks like in the new costume.
Just for the record, I totally support Gal as Wonder Woman. I think she will make a great hero!
Vin Diesel has been confirmed to play Groot in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
The ‘Fast & Furious’ actor will be taking on the part of the tree-like alien superhero in the upcoming Marvel space saga, director James Gunn has officially announced on his Facebook page.
He posted a picture of Diesel posing alongside a mask of his leafy character, adding: ”Yep, it is completely official. AND he’s amazing. I never knew someone could say ‘I AM GROOT’ so many different ways and with such feeling (and that sounds like I’m kidding but I’m not!).”
This summer Diesel had hinted at the casting by posting a picture of Groot on his own Facebook page, before swiftly taking it down.
The sentient character gains super strength from absorbing wood and has the ability to control
trees. However, the role will require little dialogue as Groot’s sole line is, ”I am Groot.”
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ features Chris Pratt as the Star Lord, Peter Quil, a human pilot who gets involved with a group of mismatched mercenaries who decide to form an intergalactic crime-fighting team. Other cast members include Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan and Bradley Cooper.
The film is set for release in August 2014.
Vin Diesel announced the release date for the latest installment of the film franchise on his Facebook page Sunday, posting a photo of himself with his late co-star Paul Walker.
“The last scene we filmed together…There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we’ve come… Fast and Furious 7 will be released…April 10th 2015!,” he wrote.
The actor wrapped up his post with another nod to Walker, writing, “P.s. He’d want you to know first.”
Universal Pictures also confirmed the release date to E! News.
I am very very sad for bring you the news that Paul Walker, Fast and Furious co-star, has died yesterday in a car crash near Los Angeles.

Paul Walker, a star of the Fast & Furious film series, has died in a fiery car crash near Los Angeles.
The 40-year-old actor was killed when his friend’s Porsche Carrera GT hit a tree and a street lamp at high speed in Valencia. The friend, who was driving, also died.
Walker played a leading role in the six-film action series about illegal street racing, which has become one of the most successful in cinema history after grossing more than $2 billion (£1.2 billion).
Police and Walker’s representatives said the pair were killed at about 3.30pm after the friend, who was said to be an experienced driver, lost control of his vehicle.
Walker had been in the area to attend a benefit event for the victims last month’s typhoon in the Philippines held by Reach Out Worldwide, a charity he founded to respond to natural disasters.
I just want to say that I’m very sad about this and I loved Paul Walker for a long time and he will never be forgotten. I want send love to his family and friends, specially Vin, that must be devastated. Rest in peace Paul, we all love you!
Vin Diesel hits the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie Riddick with his longtime love Paloma Jimenez on August 28 at the Mann Village Theatre in Westwood, California.
The 46-year-old actor was also joined by his leading ladies Katee Sackhoff and Keri Hilson at the premiere.
The film, which is the follow up to the fan favorite flick The Chronicles of Riddick, will be hitting theaters on September 6.

Now, it can be told: Vin Diesel plans to shoot “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” partially in the Philippines. Last Friday, we reported that Vin shared a “secret” with us when we chatted with him briefly at the recent grants and installation luncheon of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) at the Beverly Hilton. Well, after the event, we sat down with the actor for an interview, and he decided it should no longer be kept a secret—the next “xXx” movie will begin with his title character staying in the Philippines.
Vin, dressed casually in a white shirt and jeans, enthused about the Philippines, which he visited last May: “I had never been there until I went for the release of ‘Fast & Furious 6.’ It was probably the biggest premiere I have ever seen in my life. I felt so good about the Philippines that when I came back to California, I was thinking about what film I could do there. Because they were like, ‘Shoot a movie here.’ I met with Joe Roth, who is producing ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.’ We had a very long conversation about the fact that Xander was left in Bora Bora (in the first ‘xXx’ movie). If you looked really hard for him, you could probably find him in some tropical setting like the Philippines.”
Breaking into a smile, Vin added, “I like the warmth of the people in the Philippines. I don’t know [how to] describe it…if you go there, you will know what I mean.”
He exclaimed, “I love the Philippines! My sister-in-law (Grace Blanco) is from there.”
Asked about his photo aboard a jeepney that went viral in the social media, Vin answered, “I put up that picture because I was really traveling around in a jeepney. If you don’t know what a jeepney is, it’s like a very small open air bus that is indigenous to the Philippines. It’s kind of a trademark of the Philippines.”

“Vin and Marvel…Vin and Marvel” — a likely motto which can hang as a backdrop to the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy as Vin Diesel appears to be set as the voice of the tree like warrior Groot.
groot Guardians of the GalaxyTalking with Hero Complex, Diesel explained he had to be secretive at Comic-Con, even during the Riddick panel, but has now opened up about the role (but not angering Marvel Studios)
“The last thing they are is mad. I’m pretty open, but I have been secretive about this. I went to Comic-Con and I got blasted while I was on the Hall H panel for “Riddick.” Someone asked a Marvel question. I couldn’t say anything because of that secrecy.”
While it seems like an odd choice for Diesel, he explained.
“I’m so busy. The audience wanted Vin and Marvel, Vin and Marvel. But I’m too busy to do a six-month role. So what Marvel came up with was really interesting. … I am watching a social wave influence and in some ways guide their thinking.”
So he has even found inspiration in the role.
“I’m an actor. I can do whatever the … I want. As an actor, not everything has to be the most obvious choice. And sometimes, the best thing you can do — as far as Steven Spielberg and his advice — is to defy expectations. So if everybody thinks you’re going to go for this one thing and you flip it entirely and go for the strangest Marvel character, it’s interesting. And when something is interesting, it’s inspiring.”
“I get inspired by things. So if somebody sends me a book of conceptual art that’s the best character design work I’ve ever seen — I’m not kidding, I see that and I want to be a little cryptic and I want to say something positive. Even if it’s as cryptic as an old, dated image of a character.”
Karen Gillan has been confirmed as one of the film’s major villains, while Glenn Close will play the leader of the Nova Corps, a body of intergalactic police officers.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and John C Reilly will co-star.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to arrive August 1, 2014.
The latest trailer for Vin Diesel’s Riddick recalls the claustrophobic nature of Pitch Black, even adding some dark moments of levity.
The sci-fi film — the third entry in a franchise that began in 2000 with a basic thriller, then morphed into a space epic for a 2004 sequel — sees the antihero left on a desolate planet as mercenaries and hostile aliens chase him.
The clip, teased with the line “Rule the Dark,” showcases the grittier revival of the series. It appears to be a more PG-13 version of a red-band trailer that was released a few weeks ago.
“When the audience wanted it rated R, we knew we didn’t have to spend $200 million to make this movie,” Vin Diesel told an audience at Comic-Con in July.
The film, set for release by Universal, will hit theaters Sept. 6.
Vin was at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con on the Riddick’s panel with Katee Sackhoff and we have some pictures of then, also the Entertainment Week photoshoot.
