10 Hilarious Theories About Fast X, According To Reddit

For better or worse, the Fast and Furious franchise is still going after 22 years, and it’s bigger than ever, as Vin Diesel just revealed the title for the 10th installment of the series, Fast X. Though it isn’t the Fast10 Your Seatbelts title like many had hoped, it has still managed to hilariously ignite a bunch of fan theories and ideas on where the Fast family will go next.

As the last movie saw the crew literally go into space, Redditors’ theories are particularly inventive, and there is absolutely no basis for some of them. Between opening up a Vin Diesel multiverse, crossing over with horror franchises, and searching for Pandora’s Box, there are no stupid ideas in the Fast world.

The Series Is A Prequel To Cars

While there are tons of movies Pixar should make before Cars 4, there’s a chance that loads of films in the Pixar series have been released under everyone’s noses without anybody knowing. When it comes to the Fast and Furious series, ThePreciseClimber thinks that “the whole franchise is just an elaborate prequel to Pixar’s Cars.”

The theory somehow makes a lot of sense, as Cars is clearly set in a dystopian future and there has been no explanation as to why there are no humans in the world. It could be that as the Fast series becomes more epic with each release, it’s slowly leading up to the destruction of man where the cars of the former street racing series take over.

Though the Fast series is known for its ensemble cast, it’s very much the Vin Diesel show, especially now that Dwayne Johnson is no longer part of the franchise. Gummy-Worm-Guy thinks that there couldn’t be anything more epic or celebratory for the landmark 10th film in the series than to incorporate a multiverse.

Multiverses are a popular trend in Hollywood right now, as the MCU is currently reveling in one, Everything Everywhere All At Once has a unique spin on one, and the DCEU will introduce one in The Flash. The Redditor thinks the movie will “open up a multiverse where Dominic Toretto interacts with Shane Wolfe, Xander Cage, and Groot.” Those are all characters played by Vin Diesel, and though it sounds like a licensing rights nightmare, it’d be so weird and wonderful, even if the characters outside of Groot are all indistinguishable.

The Iron Giant Is Mr. Nobody’s Secret Weapon

The Iron Giant might be great in a huge multiversal Fast and Furious movie, but TheBreak22 has a better idea of how the iconic alien could be incorporated into the series. The Redditor thinks that “Mr. Nobody reveals the latest secret weapon project: The Iron Giant” in the upcoming 10th movie.

Mr. Nobody is the alias of a government agent, who was introduced in Furious 7 and has a warehouse full of advanced tech and weaponry. So it would hardly be surprising if he pulled a cover off a giant mechanical beast revealing the Iron Giant, just as he would with sports cars.

It’ll Be A Crossover With Jason X

Jason X is universally hated, and even fans of the Friday the 13th franchise dislike it, as the series had long jumped the shark by this point. The movie sees Jason in space, and that’s why Time-Space-Anomaly thinks that a crossover with Dominic and his family is where the series is heading, as F9 saw Rome and Tej go into space in a rocket-powered Pontiac Fiera.

The Redditor succinctly explains that the franchise “needs a space crossover with Jason X.” celebrated director Quentin Tarantino would probably agree with the Reddit user, as Tarantino thinks Jason X is a great horror. It would have been great if, instead of reaching the International Space Station, Rome and Tej landed on Earth-Two, where Jason X is set.

Tom Cruise Appears As Tony Stark

As plausibility isn’t exactly a guideline in the Fast & Furious screenwriting manual, this demand comes with as little plausibility or logical explanation as anything else in the series, and the two aren’t even remotely linked. But that doesn’t stop Flaccomcorangy from wanting to see Tom Cruise appear as Tony Stark in an end-credits scene of Fast X.

The Redditor has even written the dialogue for the scene, as when Dom meets with Stark, he tells him, “I’m here to talk to you about the Family initiative.” The Reddit user obviously has the upcoming MCU movie on their minds, as Cruise is rumored to cameo in Doctor Strange 2 as the billionaire playboy philanthropist.

Dom Becomes President

Coast_watcher has an absolutely contrived idea of how Fast X will pan out, but it’s still totally sensical in the world of the franchise. The Redditor believes that “Dom will be President and battle the Alien invasion.”

Given that Diesel’s contract states that he can’t lose a fight and he has to look as heroic as possible, there’s nothing that’ll make a movie star look more heroic than playing the President of the United States. So the likelihood of this happening is surprisingly high. And at the very least, Dom will probably comment a crime for the greater good and get a Presidential pardon, there’s nothing more Fast and Furious-like than that.

It Should Have Real World Physics

Though it isn’t technically a theory, RamenJunkie thinks the movie should go in an interesting direction, and it’s the only way that the series could have real stakes. The Redditor thinks the movie should take inspiration from The Last Action Hero and the video game Saints Row 4 as “they escape from the simulation/movie, and everything is suddenly hardcore, real-world physics.”

Seeing Dom the crew struggle with what would have otherwise been a piece of cake would make for some great physical comedy. And at the same time, it would give credence to the meta jokes in F9 about how Rome thinks he’s a movie character.

They’ll Visit The Earth’s Core

BarkeyBarley looks inwards and reckons that the upcoming sequel should be the exact opposite of the space-visiting F9. The Redditor thinks that “maybe they can go to the earth’s core this time.” Just as the first movie in the series is a secret remake of Point Break, Fast X could come full circle and secretly remake The Core.

The Core isn’t the greatest movie in the world and it’s so scientifically incorrect. But the 2003 release is still an entertaining film, as a group of scientists visits the Earth’s core to set off explosions, which will then restart the Earth’s rotation. Fast X could be exactly that… but with cars.

There’ll Be Time Travel

Time travel is a popular narrative that Fast fans have countlessly discussed with pure excitement and glee, and it’s GentlemanT-rex who first brings it to attention after the 10th movie’s title reveal. The Fast franchise is completely unpretentious and has been known to happily gives fans exactly what they want, as going into space was championed by fans years before it happened in F9. So it wouldn’t be surprising if Universal rewards longtime fans once again by including the sci-fi trope.

But the Reddit user has an absurd but hilarious idea for the villain, as Dom should tell “Adolf Hitler about how he doesn’t know a thing about ‘race superiority until he’s been on the street.'” Tarantino might have revised World War II history with Inglourious Basterds, but this is taking it to another level.

Dom Becomes A Demi-God
Dominic Toretto is essentially already a god, as he has survived falls from hundreds of feet high, and he simply dusts himself off without even a scratch. That extends to the rest of the family too, as Rome and Tej survived what they described themselves as a “suicide mission” to space.

Letty would have been killed multiple times too if the law of physics actually existed in the series. But SWO_Woodsman_945 thinks it’ll be made official in Fast X, as Dom is crowned a Demi-God and for some reason “has to go to the top of Mount Olympus and open Pandora’s Box.”

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
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.

is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
