Out promoting Bloodshot, which is supposedly the 9,000th comic book movie since 2000, Vin Diesel informed one interviewer that the ending of Furious 7, featuring the send off of Paul Walker, was not only the best in the series, but the best in cinematic history.
“I didn’t want anyone to use the tragedy as a story plot. It was so important to me…It was a very, very tough moment.
But there was some solace in the fact that we were able to protect from the natural whim of a producer or anyone to say, ‘Well now you’re going to go avenge the character,’ and use it as a plot and we were able to do something so beautiful and so classy.
It might be the best moment in cinematic history. Not just in my career but in cinematic history. Men around the world – everyone was able to cry – but men around the planet for the first time in history were able to cry together.”

Can you believe this man? The best part of all of this is that Diesel is deadly serious, which is the working ingredient that makes you want to listen to what he’ll say next.
