10 Fast & Furious 11 Theories That Would Beat The Rock & Gal Gadot’s Fast X Returns

WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS for Fast X.

Gal Gadot and The Rock’s returns in Fast X were surprising, but Fast & Furious 11 can be even more shocking if a few popular theories become true. Fast X, the beginning of the end of the Fast Saga, was expected to have the largest ensemble cast in the franchise yet. Not only was Fast X’s ensemble set of characters impressive, but the film also brought two major names back at the end – Gisele and Hobbs.
While Dwayne Johnson’s return to Fast & Furious had been reported before Fast X premiered, Gal Gadot’s return as Gisele in Fast X was a big reveal. Gisele was not dead after all, another example of how anything is possible in the Fast Saga. Here are 10 Fast & Furious 11 theories that would beat anything Fast X did.

10 Brian Has A Substantial Role In Fast & Furious 11

Since Paul Walker passed away, Fast & Furious has avoided bringing the character back. The Fate of the Furious, F9, and Fast X all established that Brian was okay and taking care of his family. However, given that Mia joined the action in both F9 and Fast X, Brian’s absence is becoming more and more noticeable. With Dante Reyes tracking down everyone Dom loves and threatening Toretto’s family, it is difficult to imagine that Brian would not show up to help his friends. As such, Brian, now created using face replacement and deep-fake techniques, could have an extended role in Fast 11.

9 Dominic Toretto’s Father Is Alive

Fast & Furious is about family, meaning that the saga’s biggest plot twist would be revealing that Toretto’s father is alive. Jack Toretto’s death is what set the events of Fast & Furious in motion, as it directly caused Dom’s first arrest. Retroactively, Jack Toretto’s death was also the reason why Jakob grew up away from Dom and Mia. Fast & Furious has brought almost every dead character back at this point, which is why no death retcon is too far-fetched for the Fast Saga. A “Dom’s father is alive” twist would fit the tone of the franchise and set up a dramatic Fast & Furious finally, especially if he returns as a villain

8 Ryan Reynolds’ Hobbs & Shaw Character Returns In Fast 11

Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Hobbs and Shaw

Ryan Reynolds was one of many surprising Hobbs & Shaw cameos. Reynolds briefly appeared in the Fast & Furious spinoff as Victor Locke, a CIA agent who briefs Hobbs on a secret mission. Not only is Ryan Reynolds friends with Dwayne Johson, but David Leitch, who directed Hobbs & Shaw, had previously directed Deadpool 2. As such, Reynolds’ cameo in Hobbs & Shaw was not necessarily meant to be the introduction of a new character in the franchise. Still, what started as a fun cameo could become something bigger if Ryan Reynolds appears in Fast & Furious 11. Now that both Jason Statham’s Shaw and Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs are back, Reynolds’ Victor Locke could show up too.

7 Kevin Hart’s Hobbs & Shaw Character Appears In Fast 11

Kevin Hart’s cameo in Hobbs & Shaw was similar to Ryan Reynolds’ appearance. Hart and Johnson have been friends for years and appeared in several movies together. Kevin Hart played Dinkley in Hobbs & Shawn, a Federal Air Marshal who gets involved with Hobbs and Shaw’s mission. Similar to Reynolds’ Victor Locke, Hart’s Marshal Dinkley was very much a plot device made more interesting by the surprising cameo.

Considering that there are no announced plans for Hobbs & Shaw 2 to happen, the upcoming Fast & Furious 11 is the perfect film to make both Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart truly part of the Fast Saga. Both actors could also return in The Rock’s new Fast & Furious spinoff, but a role in Fast & Furious11 is what would really make those two characters feel part of the Fast & Furious franchise.

6 Dominic Toretto Dies In Fast & Furious 11

If Fast & Furious 11 really wants to shock audiences, killing off Toretto would do the trick. Of course, Dominic Toretto dying in Fast & Furious 11 sounds very unlikely, which shows just how big of a twist it would be. It is still unclear how many more Fast & Furious movies there will be, as Vin Diesel has teased Fast & Furious 12 despite the lack of an official announcement. Dominic Toretto’s death in Fast & Furious 11 would not make sense if there was still another movie on the way. However, if Fast X’s sequel is the end as originally announced, Fast & Furious could wrap up the saga with Dom’s death.

5 Vin Diesel’s Toretto & The Rock’s Hobbs Have Another Fight

The Rock’s Hobbs has been away from Fast & Furious for almost two movies now, as Hobbs only appeared in Fast X’s post-credits scene. Dwayne Johnson’s return to Fast & Furious is already big news, yet Hobbs’ comeback could become even better if there were to be a fight between The Rock’s character and Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. While Dom and Hobbs have been fighting side by side since Fast Five’s ending, there has always been a bit of tension between the two characters. A Dom vs. Hobbs rematch would be a fantastic moment, even if happens over a misunderstanding. A fight between Johnson and Diesel’s character would also be quite meta.

4 Dante Reyes Kills Hobbs In Fast & Furious 11

Dante Reyes’ plan in Fast X targeted Dominic Toretto. However, Luke Hobbs is the one who really killed Dante’s father. Dominic Toretto may have led the mission that ended with Hernan Reyes’ death, but it was Hobbs who pulled the trigger. Fast X’s post-credits scene means that Dante’s revenge will finally make sense in Fast & Furious 11. Dante is aware that Hobbs is the man who killed his father and is coming for him. With Fast & Furious approaching its ending, Dante could kill Hobbs in what would be a major twist. The Rock’s new Fast & Furious spinoff makes this theory very unlikely, unless it is a prequel.

3 Fast & Furious 11 Ends On Another Cliffhanger

Fast X ends on a cliffhanger, which was expected given that Fast & Furious 11 was originally announced as the final Fast & Furious film. However, if there is to be a Fast & Furious 12, Fast 11 could copy its predecessor and end on a cliffhanger too. Dividing a finale into three parts is tricky, and it risks making Fast & Furious’ ending very complicated. Still, if done right, a Fast & Furious 11 cliffhanger can tie into the actual Fast Saga finale. Instead of a “what happened to them?” scenario as Fast X’s ending did, Fast 11 could end with the heroes losing.

2 Fast & Furious 11 Will Feature Time Travel

After Fast & Furious went to space in F9, there is nothing too far-fetched for the saga. Fast & Furious is often criticized for just how absurd the saga became, going from road heists to piloting cars in space. Still, most of the more absurd Fast & Furious theories never really happened. Time travel, for example. If Fast & Furious were to make the time travel theory a reality, Fast & Furious 11 would be the right film to do it.

Similar to Avengers: Endgame, the next Fast & Furious film could see Dominic Toretto’s family revisiting their past, thus celebrating Fast Saga’s history before its conclusion. Time travel in Fast & Furious 11 is absurd as it is unlikely, yet it cannot be ruled out. In a saga where super hacking programs and highly advanced car gadget exists, time travel could exist too.

1 Fast & Furious 11 Crossovers With Another Franchise

The most impactful Fast & Furious 11 theory is that the Fast Saga takes place in the same universe as another major pop culture franchise. One of the common Fast & Furious memes about how absurd the franchise has become is that Dominic Toretto’s family will one day meet the Transformers or fight Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs. Similar to the time travel theory, Fast & Furious crossing over with another franchise after Fast X seems very unlikely but cannot be ruled out. For example, both the Fast & Furious and Jurassic World franchises are produced by Universal. The Fast Saga is ending, and Fast & Furious’ future could now lie in crossovers with another franchise.

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

Summary

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

Summary

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

Summary

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.

The Rock’s WWE Run Proves Fast & Furious 11 Needs To Give Hobbs More Of An Edge
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.

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five

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.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
