10 Fast & Furious Questions Fast X Needs To Answer

There are several Fast & Furious franchise questions and mysteries that Fast X needs to answer. With over 20 years of history in the series between several characters, Fast & Furious 10 being the beginning of the end for the franchise puts extra responsibility on it to deliver. The combination of Fast X and Fast & Furious 11 have the pressure of bringing a satisfying conclusion to Universal’s popular action franchise. This will be done in some fashion by having Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) challenged by Dante (Jason Momoa), who risks the safety of Dom’s family.

While wrapping up Dom’s story is one of the most important ways Fast X and Fast 11 can deliver a great ending to the Fast & Furious franchise, the movies also serve as an opportunity to answer various questions and mysteries that have endured the sequels. With 10 other movies in the franchise already released, there is a vast world and mythology that has been established, but not every mystery has been answered along the way. A deeper connection to the franchise’s past will be included through the film’s ties to Fast Five, but Fast & Furious 10 can answer many other questions.

10 Did Mr. Nobody Die In F9?

One Fast & Furious mystery that is still unresolved is if Mr. Nobody died in F9. Kurt Russell’s character became a recurring supporting character who helped Dom’s crew starting in Furious 7. However, his fate was put into question at the beginning of F9 due to a plane crash and a seemingly postpartum message warning Dom about Jakob Toretto. It is never revealed if Mr. Nobody died or survived this incident. Considering Fast X is introducing his daughter Tess (Brie Larson), the chances of the lingering Fast & Furious question being answered appear quite high.

9 How Did Han Really Survive Tokyo Drift?

How Han survived his apparent death is another Fast & Furious question Fast X needs to answer. Deckard Shaw was shown to be responsible for killing Han in Fast & Furious 6’s post-credits scene, but F9 later revealed that Han faked his death with the help of Mr. Nobody. While the movie showed that this was accomplished using a hologram, it was not revealed how Han got out of the car or how he and Mr. Nobody was so prepared to fake his death that night. Considering Han and Deckard will be reunited in Fast X, an official explanation for how Han survived his attack years ago needs to come.

8 What’s Happened To Brian O’Connor After Furious 7?

There is also still a mystery about what happened to Brian O’Connor after Furious 7. Paul Walker’s passing meant it had to change its ending to work as a sendoff for the franchise’s co-lead. Understandably, Brian has been absent from the sequels since then, but questions have continued to rise as to why he is not still working with Dom’s team. There have been teases that he has retired from the dangerous missions to be with his family, but Mia continuing to be involved makes that more difficult to accept. Since F9 teased Brian is still associated with the crew, Fast X needs to better explain his continued absence.

7 Did Gisele Actually Survive Her Fast & Furious 6 Death?

Fast & Furious 10 needs to also answer questions about Gisele’s fate in Fast & Furious 6. Gal Gadot’s character seemingly died when falling off a plane, but theories have continued to persist that Gisele is alive. This has become more likely as the Fast & Furious franchise brings back more characters who were thought to be dead. If the movies want Gisele to return as a main part of the team in Fast & Furious 11, it would be best for Fast X to confirm that he survived after all. Otherwise, the movie needs to definitively end the speculation.

6 Where Is Luke Hobbs?

Where Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs has been in recent movies is another question Fast X needs to answer. The character became one of the biggest in the franchise following his debut in Fast Five, but a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel created issues for Hobbs’ future. He did not return for F9 and got a solo film, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, instead. With Shaw playing a role in the movie and the franchise coming to a close, it is necessary to provide an explanation for why Hobbs is not in Fast & Furious 10.

Jason Momoa as Dante Reyes talking on phone in Fast X

Fast X is creating a few Fast & Furious questions that need answers thanks to the introduction of Dante. Jason Momoa’s villain character is confirmed to be connected to Fast Five’s villain, Reyes. However, the exact nature of their relationship is not confirmed. The Fast & Furious 10 marketing has teased that they are family in some fashion, but whether that means they are father-son, brothers, cousins, uncle-nephew, or married is unclear. Whatever the case may be, it is clear that Dante and Reyes had a strong relationship, which is why Reyes’ death puts Dante on a path to deliver revenge on Dominic Toretto’s family.

4 What Was Dante Doing During Fast Five?

Fast X using Fast Five flashbacks to insert Dante into the franchise’s past also creates in-universe questions about where he was during the movie’s events. The real-world explanation for Jason Momoa’s character missing from Fast Five is that this connection was not part of the plan back then. However, Fast & Furious 10 must answer where Dante was throughout the film and cleverly explain why audiences never saw him. The marketing has confirmed that he was close to the vault theft and car crash on the highway, meaning there will be several opportunities for the movie to explain what Dante was up to during Fast Five.

3 What Is Cipher’s Ultimate Plan?

Charlize Theron returns as Cipher in Fast X, but her ultimate plan is still somewhat mysterious and needs to become more clear now. Her introduction in The Fate of the Furious positioned Cipher as someone who wanted to start a nuclear war, but she was secretly behind many of the past villains Dom and his crew encountered. She has become more focused on getting revenge on Dom than continuing her plan for world destruction and domination, creating questions about what her actual plan is. With Cipher possibly joining Dom’s team in Fast X, the movie must provide some clarity about her motivations.

2 Which Characters Will Leave Dom’s Team In Fast X?

Those involved with the movie have created another Fast & Furious 10 question regarding who will be on Dom’s team. Multiple individuals have suggested that Fast X will include characters who surprisingly change allegiances as part of a brewing war in the world. This suggests that some of the people from Dom’s team will leave his side. Roman, Tej, Han, or Ramsey turning against Dom would be a huge surprise that needs a great explanation behind it. If the Fast & Furious franchise is going to make heroes into villains and vise versa, the motivations behind those who leave Dom’s team needs to be properly explained.

1 How Does The Franchise Top Going To Space?


One of the biggest questions facing Fast X is how the franchise will top going to space. The movies have developed a habit of including bigger and more unbelievable action sequences in each of the sequels, leading to F9 finally taking the franchise to space. This has understandably created more questions about what Fast & Furious will do next to keep audiences amazed. The trailers for the tenth installment have teased plenty of major set pieces, but none of them are quite on par with a spaceship car. Thankfully, this Fast X question is one that the movie is assured to answer in some fashion.

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.

Hobbs & Dom Fighting In Fast & Furious 11 Would Bring Their Arc Full Circle

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.

The Rock & Vin Diesel Can Put Their Feud To Rest On Screen

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
An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

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.
