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 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.

The Rock’s WWE Run Proves Fast & Furious 11 Needs To Give Hobbs More Of An Edge

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.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

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.

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