Vin Diesel Teases Iron Giant Sequel – Is He Serious?

Remember how Vin Diesel blabbed on social networking about his Groot role in Guardians Of The Galaxy long before the official announcement he was on the film? Seems like he’s at it again. At the end of a seemingly innocent Facebook post about the rerelease of The Iron Giant (Vin provided the voice of the eponymous character and uttered the immortal line, “I am Superman!”) he suddenly drops a doozy: “Don’t be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel.”

I have been very lucky to have played so many interesting characters… one of the first and one of my favorites is… the Iron Giant.P.s. Don’t be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel.

Is he being serious? Is it a weird gag? Is is just wishful thinking? The Brad Bird film was a bit of a box office flop at the time* (despite being utterly brilliant and critically acclaimed) but its reputation and love for the film has grown over time, so a sequel isn’t such a leftfield idea. We’d certainly love to see it if Brad Bird directs again.

(*A lot of the blame for its failure was based on an lacklustre marketing campaign. That’sa reason often used for box office failure but in this case even Warner Bros bosses admitted they’d made mistakes.)
