Background: The complex android was created by the robot Ultron to destroy the Avengers and member/genius scientist and creator Hank Pym (A.K.A. Ant Man, Giant Man, Yellowjacket, and Goliath). Vision later ends up becoming an invaluable member of the team, even marrying the Scarlet Witch, who is set to appear in sequel to the Avengers. Hmmm…
Why It Works: While hardcore fans may balk at such casting (S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Agent Phil Carlson has become a beloved character in the Marvel movie/television universe and has long been rumored to become Vision), Diesel has shown some strong acting range in films like Saving Private Ryan and Boiler Room. Besides, any excuse to see dude walk through walls and wear a red, green and yellow costume is well worth it.
