10 Funniest Dom Toretto Family Memes On Twitter

F9, the latest entry in the long-running The Fast and the Furious franchise, arrived in theaters to massive fanfare from Twitter. Fans have followed the exploits of Vin Diesel’s famous character, Dominic ‘Dom’ Toretto, and his ragtag family for years. This latest installment, however, was given a different welcome from other previous movies in the series.

As soon as F9 hit North American theatres, a ton of memes celebrating Dom and his love of family hit Twitter from seemingly out of nowhere. Some memes even feature Dom crossing over into other fandoms to extoll the importance of family, leading to plenty of hilarious circumstances along the way.

Near, Far, Wherever You Are…

The acclaimed movie Titanic launched the careers of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, but its infamous ending has incited debate even between its fans. Many viewers argue that DiCaprio’s character Jack’s death was completely unnecessary, as both he and Rose could have fit on the piece of driftwood Rose used to get to safety with a little maneuvering.
This Twitter user seems to agree with this notion and posted a meme of Dom saving Jack’s life, rebuking his claims that there’s no room. This meme highlights Dom’s determination to save members of his family, no matter what, and despite its lower quality, its message more than makes up for it.

Vin Diesel Goes To Olive Garden

Aside from elaborate street racing sequences. The Fast and the Furious films are known for their reoccurring scenes of characters enjoying food alongside one another, whether they’re preparing for the challenges ahead or simply celebrating as a family.
Shelby Young, the current voice actress of Princess Leia, contributed by referencing restaurant chain Olive Garden’s famous slogan and editing Dom into the restaurant. According to, Olive Garden had previously collaborated with The Fast and The Furious in a series of ads promoting family, which sparked its own plethora of memes with fans who want to see Dom eat at an Olive Garden in the next movie.

Dom Saves The Lion King

Even animated movies aren’t safe from Dom Toretto memes. In this meme, Mufasa from Disney’s The Lion King is about to face his famously tragic death when he’s rescued by an unlikely savior: Dom, driving through the stampede with no hesitation. With a little Photoshopping, Dom grabs Mufasa in the nick of time and drives him to safety.

Not only does this meme avert one of the saddest moments from many fans’ childhoods, it also provides an interesting concept for future Fast and Furious movies. Dom and his crew have yet to drive during a wild stampede, and it would make a fascinating setpiece. CGI has come very far and could easily capture the intensity of a stampede without endangering Vin Diesel or any other actors or animals.

What’s Stronger Than A Hulk?

@ShivamChatak is the user responsible for bringing many Dom Toretto memes to Twitter, helping to fuel the flames of the ensuing family meme cavalcade. This meme, in particular, has the fortune of featuring another popular character trending right now: Loki from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here, Dom casually refutes Loki’s threats in a similar way to Iron Man in The Avengers. However, Dom has his whole family ready to go. The screenshot of Dom used here perfectly fits with the screenshot of Loki, and it almost looks like they’re occupying the same space. Dom even looks like he’s staring directly at Loki as he smirks.

Friends ARE Family, Dom

The Fast and the Furious 7 includes a famous quote from Vin Diesel as Dom where he states that he doesn’t have any friends, only family. While @beccagrawl claims to have never seen a Fast and The Furious movie in her life, her meme perfectly captures the essence of Dom’s worldview, where family reigns above all.
This meme borrows its formatting from the Drake meme and contains references to both Friends and Family Matters – two shows that have frequently been mentioned in other Dom memes. While it’s clearly Vin Diesel here instead of his character, Dom, the source for the joke still makes itself apparent.

Dom Joins The Justice League

A common format of Dom Toretto memes involves characters begging Dom not to take on their main villain one-on-one, as it’s far too dangerous. Dom then looks back, remarking that no villain is a match for the sheer all-encompassing power of family.

@Deepans30707976’s take on this format proves the most effective; as a general of Apokolips, Steppenwolf is a dangerous foe and could present a real threat to Dom if he hadn’t had family on his side. Deepanshu seems so confident in this match-up that he has replied to Vin Diesel himself with the hope of him seeing and appreciating the meme.

Fast Wars: The Furious Awaken

One of the most baffling moments of F9 that made no sense involves a sequence where characters Roman and Tej rig their car in order to achieve space flight. This meme takes that scene to its most logical conclusion, as a fleet of hot rods arrives to help Star Wars pilot, Poe Dameron. And leading the cavalry is none other than Dom Toretto himself.
Poe’s look of awe and relief speaks volumes, almost as if he’s reacting to Dom’s proclamation of family being the strongest thing in the universe. If Dom and his family had actually assisted against the First Order, the sequel trilogy would have been only one movie.

He May Be Your Father, Boy, But He’s Not Your Family

In a riff on Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, an entry from another major franchise Vin Diesel featured in, Dom shows up in the nick of time to avenge Meredith Quill’s untimely death at Ego the Living Planet’s hand. The creative use of Quill shooting Ego immediately after the reveal, alongside the immaculate photoshopping of Dom, is what truly makes this meme something special.
This meme was originally posted by @HowieBling at the beginning of the Dom Toretto meme avalanche, whose account has since gone private. Thankfully, the meme lives on for fellow family connoisseurs to enjoy.

Family Is Inevitable

While Groot was present for the final confrontation against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, some fans wonder what would happen if another Vin Diesel character was the one to do Thanos in. Enter @MemesCentral, who provides this meme of Dom wielding the Infinity Gauntlet in Tony Stark’s stead to combat Thanos.

The Infinity Gauntlet is too powerful for regular mortals, and Tony Stark sacrificed his life to use it to defeat Thanos. Dom Toretto’s belief in the power of family is so strong, however, that it may give him the determination he needs to cheat even death.

Dom Wick?

Fellow action series John Wick also has plenty of memes in its fanbase and all dog-loving fans of the movie agree that the title character’s actions in the first movie are completely rational, as they too would enact revenge on anyone who hurt their beloved dog. One of these people happens to be Dom Toretto, who is seen here offering his help to John.
Dogs are a treasured part of anyone’s family and Vin Diesel himself is a dog lover, as seen on Dom values all family members big and small and fans of both movies are enthusiastic about the idea of Dom and John Wick crossing over.

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.

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.
