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 Needs Hobbs Vs. Dom (To End The Rock & Vin Diesel’s Feud)


Fast and Furious 11 needs to feature an epic fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel to resolve the real-life feud and bring closure to their characters’ relationship. The clash between Dom and Hobbs in Fast Five was a game-changer, and revisiting that epic confrontation in Fast 11 would elevate the action and add nostalgia. A showdown between Dom and Hobbs in Fast 11 could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation, reaffirming the underlying themes of family and unity in the franchise.

Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has returned to the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 11 needs to include an epic fight between Johnson and Vin Diesel. In the high-octane world of the Fast and Furious franchise, the thrill of fast cars and heart-stopping action has always been amplified by the magnetic on-screen chemistry between its stars. However, a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel has been brewing since 2016. Director Louis Leterrier achieved the impossible by bringing The Rock back into the fold. Now, he must find a way to reunite Luke Hobbs and Dominic Toretto on-screen.

Ever since Fate of the Furious, the void left by The Rock’s absence has grown more conspicuous. The actor’s feud with Vin Diesel has cast a shadow over the franchise, making it increasingly difficult for the writers and directors to craft a cohesive narrative. As Fast Saga fans await the next installment, all eyes are on Leterrier to weave a compelling story that not only showcases jaw-dropping action but also offers a chance for Hobbs and Dom to partake in an epic showdown.

Fast X and Fast and Furious 11 act as sequels to Fast Five in many ways, so it makes perfect sense for the upcoming installment to build on the fight scene between Dom and Hobbs from Fast Five. The clash between the two powerhouse characters left an indelible mark on fans. Revisiting that epic confrontation could elevate the adrenaline-fueled action and add a layer of nostalgia to Fast and Furious 11. Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had a change of heart and returned to the Fast Saga, the anticipation for a rematch between his and Vin Diesel’s characters has reached a fever pitch.

Dom and Hobbs’ showdown in Fast Five was a game-changer for the franchise, propelling it to new heights with its intensity and raw energy. Given the unresolved tension between the two stars in real life, a meticulously crafted fight scene in Fast 11 has the potential to invigorate the climax of the series and provide a cathartic experience for the actors and fans alike. As Fast 11 may be the final chapter in the Fast and Furious universe, all eyes are on this anticipated clash. Hopefully, a brotherly fight will be the defining moment that brings harmony back to the Fast Saga family.

Vin Diesel and The Rock’s personal history adds a layer of complexity to any potential fight between their characters in Fast and Furious 11. Given their real-life feud, it’s unlikely either actor would be portrayed as the clear winner or loser. Moreover, from a storytelling perspective, it would be counterproductive to have Dom excessively harm or kill Hobbs or vice versa. However, as the series approaches its potential end, a showdown between Dom and Hobbs could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation. After all, throughout the Fast and Furious films, audiences have witnessed a recurring pattern of men engaging in physical conflicts before eventually forming unbreakable bonds.

For instance, Fast and Furious sees Dom and Brian’s tumultuous relationship evolve into a deep brotherly connection after a series of knock-down, drag-out fights. This same sort of understanding between Dom and Hobbs would reaffirm the underlying themes of reconciliation and family that have contributed to the franchise’s enduring popularity. By embracing the notion that they are, in a sense, brothers, Dom and Hobbs could mend their on-screen relationship and deliver a broader message of unity. This would ultimately give fans a satisfying conclusion to their relationship in Fast and Furious 11.

Vin Diesel Posts Paul Walker Tribute On 10th Anniversary Of His Death


Vin Diesel shares a touching tribute to Paul Walker 10 years after the actor’s tragic death on November 30, 2013. Diesel expresses that “more smiles manage to break through the tears” as years pass because he knows his bond with Walker will be stronger than ever when they eventually reunite. Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, remains alive in the world of Fast and Furious, and Diesel has previously teased that the franchise won’t end without a proper farewell to Brian and Walker.

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel takes to social media to share a touching tribute to Paul Walker, 10 years after the actor’s death. First released in 2001, the debut installment in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise introduces Diesel as Dominic Toretto and Walker as Brian O’Connor. Both characters would return for a number of sequels, but Walker tragically passed away on November 30, 2013, during the production of Furious 7.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Walker’s passing, Diesel has shared a touching tribute post on Instagram to honor his late Fast and Furious costar. Check out the actor’s emotional post below:

Accompanying an image of Walker with one of his daughters, Diesel reminisces about an important lesson learned from the late actor and how his legacy still lives on today. Diesel’s full caption is included below:

I was listening to a song this morning…‘That Lucky Old Sun’… thought of you, racing around Heaven all day. Hahaha…
The family of the Mourning, feels like it has grown since a decade ago… feel’s like that experience of losing someone is far too common today. Leaving more and more of us in search for meaning, trying to make sense of this complex existence…
Oh, I have finally understood what you use to do with the phone, “phone Fasting”… you had the insight to turn off your phone for long stretches of time. I started this year to do just that. You used to say, Vin and I can go years without talking, and our brotherhood will always be stronger than we left it, the ones who truly love you will always be there.
Amen to that.
This is one of my favorite images ever taken… You knew how proud I was when my daughter, the Alpha Angel, your niece would play the piano… well last night she was playing Moonlight Sonata… it took me back to the night before she was born. Me and you were working late… you were telling me that the best moment in life would be witnessing my child being born. That priceless smile you had when I told you the next day that I had cut the umbilical cord…
The next song she started playing on the piano is by an artist you would have loved, named Billie Eilish, ‘What was I made for’… when she started to play, the other angels all came and joined her at the piano and they started singing… wow…emotions… angels, I know you were listening.
After ten years… I know these days of beautiful remembrance will be filled with tears. But as time rolls on, with each year that passes… more smiles manage to break through the tears. Cause I know, when I see you again… our brotherhood will be stronger than we left it.
Miss you.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return
CGI Paul Walker in Furious 7.

Walker’s death in November 2013 came with a great deal of sadness, but it also created problems for the Furious 7 production, which was about halfway done. It was ultimately decided that Walker’s remaining scenes would be completed with a digital recreation of the actor, with his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, serving as body doubles. Although Walker may have passed away, Brian remains alive and well within the world of the films, though he has not been seen in the flesh since Furious 7’s emotional ending.

The closet audiences have come to seeing Brian again (outside of the flashbacks featured in Fast X) is at the end of F9: The Fast Saga, when the character’s iconic Nissan Skyline pulls up at Dom’s house. This summer’s Fast X supposedly sets up the conclusion of the franchise in an 11th and potentially 12th installment (in addition to the announced Dwayne Johnson Luke Hobbs spinoff movie), and it’s very likely that the final movie will see Brian return in some capacity.

Diesel has also essentially teased as much, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) earlier this year: “I couldn’t imagine this saga ending without truly saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner.” It’s unclear if this will mean a substantial digital recreation of the actor for extended portions of the film or a quick cameo at the very end, but it seems like audiences haven’t seen the last of Brian just yet. Even in death, Walker remains a key pillar of Fast and Furious, and it’s fitting that the final film will feature another heartfelt goodbye to further honor the late actor.

All 4 Fast & Furious Heroes Who Stayed Dead (& Which One Is Most Likely To Return)


Fast & Furious franchise is known for bringing back dead characters, but there are a few heroes who have remained dead. Jack Toretto, Dom’s father, died in a racing accident and his death should not be undone in the franchise. Jesse, a member of Dom’s crew, was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Vince was killed during an ambush. Elena, Dom’s love interest, was killed by the villain Cipher.

The Fast & Furious franchise has brought many characters back from the dead, but a handful of its heroes have remained killed off after their demise. The Fast Saga has taken its characters on a wild ride from street racing to the most outlandish adventures possible. The running theme of the Fast & Furious franchise has long been family, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) building quite a large family indeed over the course of the Fast Saga’s run.

On top of its embrace of ridiculous, superhuman feats as a staple of its action scenes, the Fast & Furious movies are also well known for bringing back seemingly dead characters for more missions. The returns of Sung Kang’s Han in F9 and Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar in Fast X would be especially noteworthy in emphasizing the notion that no Fast & Furious death is irreversible. However, that is not entirely true, as there have been a few Fast & Furious heroes who have died and never come back.

4 Jack Toretto
An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

Jack Toretto (J.D. Pardo) is the father of Dom, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and Jakob Toretto (John Cena), and is first seen in a flashback to 1989 in F9. Jack is a highly skilled race car driver who instilled that talent in his children, with Dom and Jakob being part of his racing pit crew. However, Jack’s racing career took a tragic turn when his car malfunctioned and crashed, killing him. Dom later beat his father’s racing opponent, Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack), almost to death with a wrench, believing him responsible for his father’s demise.

This tragedy also led to Dom and Jakob falling out, with Dom later coming to believe that Jakob set up their father’s death since he was the last one to work on his car. However, Jack was intentionally attempting to throw the race in order to get his family out of debt. He had asked Jakob to help tinker with his car so that it would fail, with Jack’s death being unintentional on both their parts. While his return has been theorized by fans, of all the characters killed off in Fast & Furious, Jack Toretto’s death should never be retconned.

3 Jesse

One of the early members of Dom’s family in the original The Fast and the Furious, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) was the brains of Dom’s crew in his enterprise of stealing DVD players. Jesse went on the run after losing a street race to Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), having bet his MK3 Volkswagen Jetta in the race. Jesse was later killed outside of Dom’s house when Johnny Tran and his associate Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee) arrived and performed a drive-by shooting. Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) then chased down Johnny Tran and Lance Nguyen to avenge their fallen friend.

2 Vince

Vince (Matt Schulze) was another member of Dom’s crew in The Fast & the Furious, and he was badly injured during a truck heist in that first movie. After his recovery, Vince fled to Rio de Janeiro where he later reunited with Dom and family in Fast Five. Despite Vince having settled down with a wife and a baby son, he agreed to join Dom’s daring heist of Rio’s most feared crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Unfortunately, Vince was killed during an ambush by Reyes’s team. After successfully pulling off the heist, Dom left Vince’s intended share of the money with his wife and son.

1 Elena

Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) worked alongside Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in apprehending Dom and his crew in Fast Five. She and Dom gradually developed feelings for each other, however, and departed for Spain with Dom at the end of the movie. After Dom learned that his wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) was still alive despite her apparent death in Fast & Furious, Dom and Elena had an amicable split, only for it to later be revealed that Elena is the mother of Dom’s son in The Fate of the Furious.

After Elena was killed by the villainous Cipher (Charlize Theron), Dom and Letty raised the boy together, with the two naming him Brian after Brian O’Conner. Meanwhile, Dom later met Elena’s sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior), who joined Dom’s crew in Fast X. While Elena remains deceased as of Fast X, the arrival of her sister Isabel and Fast & Furious’s habit of not truly killing off characters makes her the most likely thought-to-be-dead hero to potentially return as the franchise speeds towards its finale.
