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 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

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

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.
