7 Fast & Furious 11 Story Teases Hidden In Fast X

Cipher’s alliance with Dom’s family in Fast X hints at potential betrayal or a breakdown of their partnership in Fast & Furious 11.
Mia’s involvement in Fast X raises questions about her role in Fast & Furious 11, as well as the potential return of Brian O’Conner.
Tej’s reference to time travel in Fast X suggests the possibility of it being incorporated into Fast & Furious 11, with Tej and Ramsey being the tech-savvy members who could develop it.

Fast X is the 10th chapter of the Fast & Furious franchise, and it sets up Fast & Furious 11 in a number of ways. In Fast X, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) leads his family on their latest mission against the revenge-minded Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa). With Fast X acting as part one of the two-part finale for the Fast & Furious franchise, the movie leaves far more unanswered questions that most Fast & Furious movies have in the past.
Fast X director Louis Letterier has teased how the movie sets up Fast & Furious 11, with Letterier specifying five key scenes as having hidden clues. Though Leterrier has only explicitly identified one such scene, there are quite a few in the movie that overtly present themselves as setting up some aspect of Fast & Furious 11 (though The Rock’s end-credits cameo is not among them, with it instead setting up the franchise’s Hobbs & Reyes spin-off.) Here are the seven Fast X scenes that hint at where Fast & Furious 11 is headed.

7 Cipher Sets Up Fast & Furious 11’s War In Fast X Scene

Charlize Theron’s Fast Saga villainess Cipher becomes an unexpected ally of Dom and his family when she shows up on his front door step, having narrowly escaped from the clutches of Dante. The scene of Cipher striking a truce with Dom and his wife Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) has been specified by Letterier as one to pay attention to for its hidden signals of how the Fast saga will progress. Given Cipher’s history of bringing nothing but grief to Dom and his family, this could hint to a few possibilities for the story of Fast and Furious 11.
While Cipher and Dom’s family have a common enemy in Dante, Cipher herself is still anything but trustworthy. With Letty initiating their fight scene in the Arctic black site later in the movie, she clearly is not prepared to trust Cipher long term, and Cipher is certainly not inclined to do the same beyond their immediate conflict with Dante. This might very well mean that Cipher’s team-up with Dom’s family will fully go off the rails in Fast & Furious 11, with either Cipher betraying them or the two sides becoming enemies again by some other means.

6 Brian & Mia Return After Hiding Safely In Fast X

Fast X’s main plot, it also raises questions about her involvement in Fast & Furious 11, as well as that of her husband.
After Paul Walker’s tragic death in 2013, Brian O’Conner was retired from the Fast Saga in Furious 7, with Dom and his friends deciding his and Mia’s growing family life was their new priority. Despite this, Mia still returned to lend the group a hand in F9, with Brian back home looking after Little B (though Brian himself made an off-screen return by the end of the movie.) While Mia might jump back into action in Fast & Furious 11, Brian’s arguably needed return would still be a huge risk, creating one of the biggest challenges Fast & Furious 11 has to address.

5 Tej Teases Fast & Furious 11 Time Traveling In Fast X Scene

As the Fast & Furious franchise has drifted further and further away from realism, a popular fan theory has emerged that the series will eventually bring time-travel into the equation. While that does not happen in Fast X, Tej (Ludacris) nonetheless alludes to it when he, Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel), and Roman (Tyrese Gibson) are in an internet café in London. Perplexed by how low-tech the café is, Tej asks “Did I just time travel?”, which could be a subtle fourth-wall breaking hint of time-travel being a part of Fast & Furious 11.
What makes Tej’s line particularly intriguing is that he and Ramsey would be the members of Dom’s family best qualified to develop a time-travel mechanism. In the Fast Saga, Tej and Ramsey have always been the most tech-savvy members of Dom’s crew, by far. The fact that it is Tej referencing time-travel in Fast X, with Ramsey close by when he does, might be a hint that the two of them are already thinking about how to perfect Doc Brown’s time-traveling DeLorean would be for Dom and company.

4 The Plane With Dom’s Family Crashing

As Dom chases Dante to the dam in Fast X’s climactic chase scene, the villain pulls an unexpected trick out of his hat when Aimes (Alan Ritchson) is revealed to be his ally, with Aimes shooting down the cargo plane carrying Tej, Ramsey, Han, and Roman. The plane crashes off-screen, but of course, off-screen deaths for Dom’s family are extremely hard to take seriously as legitimate possibility. The big question is how Tej, Ramsey, Han, and Roman survive the crash.
The plane crash scene does not show any of them parachuting from the plane, but the Fast family could surely pull off an escape by simply driving a car out of the cargo ramp. The question then becomes how they will reunite with Dom and lend him a hand after the crash. This could be a key part of Fast & Furious 11’s story, with the movie intentionally keeping Dom’s crew broken up as part of Dante’s divide and conquer strategy.

3 The “Death” Of Jakob Toretto

During Fast X’s big chase scene in its third act, Jakob Toretto makes the ultimate sacrifice, intentionally crashing his car into those driven by Dante’s associates. Even with the huge explosion the crash causes, no Fast & Furious death can be taken at face value, especially with Han (Sung Kang) having “died” under very similar circumstances. This leaves the distinct possibility that Jakob will return to help Dom and his family again in Fast & Furious 11.
Of course, with that said, Jakob’s apparent demise happens swiftly enough that it would be tricky even for the Fast Saga to concoct a semi-plausible explanation for how he was able to escape the explosion in time (and off-screen.) It might be that Jakob Toretto could be one of the very few Fast & Furious heroes to actually die and the reality of his death will be made clear in Fast & Furious 11. Naturally, that would be quite a twist for Fast & Furious 11 to present.

2 The Dam Collapsing In Front Of Dom & Little B

Fast X Dominic toretto Stunts

Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto is about as close to invincible as any action movie hero has ever gotten, but even he faces a dilemma like no other in Fast X’s cliffhanger ending. After driving his car down the face of a dam to escape two exploding semi-trucks, Dom and Little B find themselves right in the path of a collapsing dam thanks to Dante’s rigged explosives. It goes without saying that this is going to factor heavily into Fast X’s opening.
Even without Dom’s borderline immortality, there is little reason to think that Fast & Furious 11 will kick off with both he and his son being killed off in the first few minutes. Nonetheless, Dom and Little B have quite a challenge literally right in front of them in getting to safety before the dam fully collapses and a tidal wave comes their way. They could escape with the help of some unexpected ally dropping in to save them, which itself might hint to where Fast & Furious 11 will head from there.

1 The Return of Gisele In The Movie’s Ending Scene

Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar was seemingly killed off in 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, but as mentioned previously, death has about as much relevance as gravity in the Fast & Furious universe, with Gisele returning in Fast X’s ending. Gisele’s death in Fast & Furious 6 saw her fall from a cargo plane speeding across a runway, which realistically would have killed her instantly, but she appears completely unharmed in her return in Fast X. Clearly, this is meant to indicate she will be an important player in Fast & Furious 11.
Gisele’s return also comes on the heels of the return of her boyfriend Han in F9, Han having also been presumed dead for years after Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift. While Gisele’s reunion with Han will likely be a major part of the story of Fast & Furious 11, it might be a fully amicable. With Gisele having potentially faked her death in Fast & Furious 6 like Han did, both she and Han might harbor some bitterness towards the other for letting them believe they had been dead for so long, which could be part of how Fast X sets up their story in Fast & Furious 11.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.
