10 Hilarious Comments The Fast & Furious 10’s New Name, According To Reddit

The fact that the Fast and Furious titles don’t follow a pattern has itself become a pattern, and Vin Diesel’s announcement that Fast and Furious 10 is titled Fast X hilariously continues the amusing exercise. The movie again drops the “furious” and, instead of using ordinal numbers, it uses Roman numerals for the first time.

And while the title is fairly simple and doesn’t require much reading into, Redditors have done the exact opposite. Based on the name alone, Redditors have predicted crossovers and the theme music, and they’ve made some unfortunate observations that probably have the producers regretting the title.

The X-Men Will Appear

It’s easy to see how JL1823 makes the connection between Fast and Furious 10’s new name and X-Men, especially seeing as how Fast X’s name suspiciously looks like the metallic logo for the mutant movie. The Redditor hilariously notes, “this is how they introduce the X-Men into the MCU.” Unfortunately, Universal doesn’t own the rights to the superhero franchise and there’s no chance of it happening.

However, it’s still fun to imagine, and though it would be a licensing rights nightmare, if it was possible, there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Vin Diesel would do everything in his power to incorporate the superhero team. There’d even be a fight scene between Dom (Diesel,) and Wolverine, and Dom would end up winning.

There’s No Furious

The Fast and the Furious was originally the name of a 1950s Roger Corman movie, but the title fits the original movie well (as it was a gritty crime-action flick, and Dominic Toretto certainly fit the title’s description). The movie was originally titled Redline, which is a lot less exciting.

But following Fast Five, the series has once again dropped the “furious” from the name. BetterCallSal sarcastically notes that the series “had gotten 2 fast earlier. So they had to back off a bit.” The Redditor is referring to the title of the underrated 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The Series’ Names Are All Over The Place

UltraLowSpecGamer notes that based on the past nine movies, released over 22 years, “there isn’t even a bit of consistency here.” Not one movie matches with another, which must be completely unprecedented for a blockbuster movie franchise.

After the second movie established numbered sequels, Tokyo Drift opted for a subtitle instead. Then the fourth movie essentially had the same name as the original film, but it wasn’t a remake or reboot. Then the eighth movie’s title was a pun and the ninth movie barely even has a title. The only consistency is that every title has an “F” in it (a CinemaScore that F9 was lucky to avoid).

It Isn’t Called FUR10US

Though none of the titles in the series remotely match, the producers clearly love playing around with numbers, such as replacing “too” with “2.” As Citizen_31415 notes, Universal had another chance to do that with the tenth installment in the series. The Redditor types out the title like, “FUR10US,” and it works aesthetically and makes way more sense than Fast X.

Though it might not be a pun, it’s a more realistic title, even if it is the fan’s second favorite. However, something that fans might not know is that the original movie is based on a Vibe news article called Racer X, so the new title could be a reference to that.

It Isn’t Called Fast10 Your Seatbelts

Reddit as a whole is outraged that the movie isn’t titled Fast10 Your Seatbelts. The Franchise is one to give the fans what they want, as they had been talking about the family going into space years before it happened in F9. So there was a faint glimmer of hope that the studio would appease fans once again by giving it the long joked-about title.

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, and StrangeAeons1 thinks it’s because “they didn’t have the [guts]” to do it. It would have been the perfect opportunity for the series to finally have matching titles, as Fate of the Furious is a pun on it being the eighth movie. But the line will no doubt be said in the movie, or it’ll be the tagline on the poster.

The Series Will Never End

Universal is, undoubtedly, working at the fastest speed possible to pump out movies in the franchise, as they’re beloved, entertaining, and huge moneymakers. UnknownDerpyDerp doesn’t see an end in sight, but that’s simply because “they will stop once they reached the end of the numbers.”

Some think that the Fast series has too many sequels, and while the movies have a huge fanbase, it’s almost unbelievable that it has lasted 22 years. And the Redditor thinks it isn’t going to end unless studio executives forget how to count.

The xXx Crossover

People think that the Fast series should crossover with Jurassic Park, but based on the new title reveal, Bizchasty has other ideas. The Redditor posits, “only 20 more installments until a glorious xXx crossover.” Diesel’s one other hot property outside of the Fast series is the xXx franchise, a series about Xander Cage, who is an NSA spy and an extreme sports enthusiast.

The series is just as outlandish as Fast and Furious, but because they’re so similar, that’s exactly why a crossover might not work. However, if the Fast series reaches 30 movies, it doesn’t only deserve to crossover with xXx, it should get to crossover with whatever other franchise it wants.

How Universal Comes Up With The Titles

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has superproducer Kevin Feige behind it, who has a coherent vision and more than anything can give a 20+ movies series some much-needed uniform. However, the same can’t exactly be said for the Fast franchise, which clearly doesn’t have a singular figurehead overseeing the series’ trajectory, at least not based on the titles, that is.

But Romeo9594 thinks it goes much deeper than that. The Redditor hilariously posits that “It’s actually been 10 different people naming these, and they’re all kept in a different room and aren’t allowed to talk to each other or know what past titles were.”

The Theme Music

Fast and Furious features some great songs, and the series was known for its tie-in music as much as it was for popularizing street racing. Ja Rule made a song for the first movie, Ludacris made a song for the second movie, and The Teriyaki Boys made a song for Tokyo Drift.

It was a tradition that a catchy rap song was released alongside each movie, and SeductiveGodofThundr thinks that tradition should return for Fast X. Though it isn’t an original track, Redditor demands that “if the trailer isn’t set to ‘X Gon’ Give It To Ya,’ someone needs to be fired,” and there’s no denying it’d fit perfectly.

It’s The Name Of A Laxative

The Fast franchise often takes itself way too seriously, and it regularly thinks that it’s way more profound than it actually is, so there isn’t much toilet humor in the movies. However, with Fast X, that might be about to change. DulgUnum makes that strange observation that “Fast X sounds like a laxative,” but it isn’t actually all that strange.

Interestingly, there is actually a tablet that has a similar function with an extremely similar name, Gas-X. It’s an unfortunate link, and if anyone at Universal knew this beforehand, the studio probably wouldn’t have ended up going with the title.

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.

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.

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.
