The Fast and The Furious star first sparked rumours of his involvement in an upcoming Marvel project last month (Jul13) when he took to his page and revealed that he had met with company bosses over a top-secret new role.

He simply wrote, "Marvel meeting today... Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed... and after that meeting today... wow!"

On Sunday (11Aug13), Diesel appeared to hint that the mystery job was for the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy by posting a picture of the franchise's alien character Groot on the social networking blog.

He did not comment on his reasons for sharing the image, but now reports Diesel is in negotiations to star alongside Zoe Saldana, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt and Benicio del Toro in the movie, which recently went into production and is scheduled for a 2014 release.
