This Is The Highest Grossing Vin Diesel Movie Of All Time

Way back in 2001, director Rob Cohen premiered a little production known as "The Fast and the Furious." The feature focused primarily on the subjects of street racing, crime, and, of course, family, a trio of topics that combined to jumpstart one of the most recognizable and tenured film franchises in history. As one would imagine, as the "Fast and Furious" property achieved worldwide recognition, the same happened to its stars — launching an actor named Vin Diesel, who had previously gained minor fame via "The Iron Giant" and "Pitch Black," into the mainstream spotlight. 

Following the success of the inaugural "Fast and Furious" installment, Vin Diesel went on to become a Hollywood mainstay through numerous sequels, the latest being 2021's "F9." However, the big-screen star didn't just limit himself to the Dominic Toretto role he built his career on. "XXX," "The Chronicles of Riddick," and later projects like "The Last Witch Hunter" and "Bloodshot" helped establish Diesel as a force to be reckoned with at the movies. By extension, his name came to have some serious significance as it pertains to bumping up box office numbers as well.

With a filmography stretching back over 20 years, Vin Diesel has taken on a few highly bankable titles in his time. Of the bunch, here's the one that he was involved in that brought home the most cash.

Vin Diesel played a part in Avengers: Endgame's remarkable box office success

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a constant at the cinema since 2008 and has only expanded in the years since its arrival. This has given relatively unexplored Marvel Comics characters, such as those found on the Guardians of the Galaxy team, a chance to shine. They starred in their first live-action flick in 2014, and Vin Diesel was cast as the voice behind the sentient tree, Groot — a part he'd play in the 2017 sequel and beyond. His latest reprisal came in 2019's "Avengers: Endgame," and given the film's mammoth box office numbers, it should come as no surprise it's Diesel's most financially prosperous movie.

In the wake of 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War," Marvel fans were itching to find out where Marvel Studios would take the story next. Thanos (Josh Brolin) succeeded in eliminating half of all life in the universe by the time the credits rolled, wiping out several heroes in the process, so anticipation was high, to say the least. The mounting curiosity over how the remaining Avengers would redeem themselves led "Endgame" to earn nearly $3 billion (via The Richest) — unseating "Avatar" as the highest-grossing movie of all time for a spell and capping off over a decade of storytelling.

Though he was far from central to the plot, it will forever read in the history books that Vin Diesel was responsible for voicing Groot in "Avengers: Endgame." Therefore, the history books will also read that he played a hand in one of the most monetarily successful films ever made.
