6 Big Fast & Furious Theories After The Fast X Trailer

The first Fast X trailer has created several big Fast & Furious theories for the franchise. Universal waited until right before the Super Bowl to show off the first footage from Fast & Furious 10, which is meant to be the first of two films that will end the main saga. The announcement from Vin Diesel that Dominic Toretto’s story is coming to an end in the near future prompted speculation about how the series will wrap up. Fast 10 is the first step in this plan and is expected to be packed with significant reveals and connections to the franchise’s past, such as tying Jason Momoa’s villain to Fast Five.

Now that the first Fast X trailer has been released, there is a much more clear picture of what the movie will be. The main story appears to revolve around Momoa’s Dante setting out for revenge against Dom and his team for taking away his family. This will put the various members of Dom’s crew in danger, possibly even forcing some to switch sides, and bring other characters back into the franchise’s plan. While there have been plenty of Fast & Furious 10 theories since even before the trailer was released, the footage shown helps create even more and adds new evidence to support existing ones.

6 Brie Larson’s Fast X Character Is Brian’s Sister

Fast 10 Trailer Brie Larson Brian Sister Theory

One Fast & Furious 10 theory that is supported by Fast X’s trailer is that Brie Larson plays Brian’s sister. Ever since it was announced that the Captain Marvel was joining Fast & Furious, there has been speculation about the identity of her character. It did not take long for the theories to suggest that Larson is a family member of Paul Walker’s character. The two actors share some physical similarities, but F9 introducing Jakob (John Cena) as Dom’s secret younger brother opened the door for such a significant retcon. It also is a chance for the O’Conner family to expand even though Paul Walker is no longer around.

The Fast X trailer offers some potential hints that Brie Larson’s Tess is Brian’s sister, as she is very clearly aligned with Dom’s team. She and Dom are shown talking in a bar and fighting alongside each other once a scrum breaks out. While the Toretto crew is filled with people that he knows and trusts throughout the years, it would make sense that Brian’s sister is among the people that Dom would trust the most. There is no other definitive proof that Brie Larson and Paul Walker’s characters are related, but the Fast & Furious franchise delivering another surprise sibling twist in this manner is believable.

5 Charlize Theron’s Cipher Joins Dom’s Team In Fast X

Another worthy Fast 10 theory after the first trailer is that this could be the movie where Charlize Theron’s Cipher joins Dom’s team. Introduced in The Fate of the Furious, Cipher became the face of the franchise’s push into more technology and artificial intelligence. She played the main villain and was responsible for turning Dom against his family, while she then came back for a minor role in F9. Following the series’ trend of turning villains into heroes, Fast X could finally pull off the same twist in allegiance for Cipher.
The tease for Cipher joining Dom’s team in Fast X comes from the final moments of the trailer where she and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are shown together. While this moment includes them fighting, seeing both of them trapped in the same room could be a sign that they have a common enemy in the latest Fast & Furious movie. It might not be a truly heroic turn for Charlize Theron’s villain in Fast 10, but it is plausible that she and Letty will have to put their differences and past (which includes Cipher making out with Dom right in front of Letty) aside for the greater good.

4 Fast X’s Real Villain Is Tied To Hobbs & Shaw’s Secret Villain

The Fast X trailer sets up Jason Momoa’s Dante as the main villain of the movie, but there have also been teases that there is more going on. Star Vin Diesel teased at the trailer launch event that there is a villain that the franchise will introduce who is obsessed with technology, AI, and cars that do not need drivers. That could mean that Fast X will include a surprise connection to Hobbs & Shaw, even though Dwayne Johnson is not returning for the upcoming installment.
This Fast & Furious 10 theory suggests that Hobbs & Shaw’s secret villain “The Director” is the one pulling the strings and will return in a bigger role in Fast 11. “The Director” was introduced as the leader of Eteon, a tech-based terrorist organization that is interested in cybernetics and other technological advancements. It could be revealed that Hobbs & Shaw’s villain has played a role in the franchise’s past and is now responsible for funding Jason Momoa’s villain revenge plot that is far bigger than his family’s past ambitions. This could even be another reason why Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) was brought back in F9’s post-credits scene.

3 Cipher & Letty Become Cyborgs In Fast X

Fast X Trailer Cipher Letty Operation

Another intriguing Fast & Furious 10 theory after the trailer is that Cipher and Letty will become cyborgs in the movie. This stems from the final scene of the Fast X trailer where Charlize Theron and Michelle Rodriguez’s characters are shown strapped to tables. It appears that they are being examined in some fashion and might have even been operated on. Unless the Fast & Furious franchise is going the Face/Off route or has another unexpected sci-fi twist in mind, it would fit within the world that the series has built for Cipher and Letty to become cyborgs.
The superhuman implants that Charlize Theron and Michelle Rodriguez’s characters could receive in Fast X would be a clever way to build on Hobbs & Shaw. The spinoff movie featured Idris Elba’s Brixton as a cybernetically-enhanced super soldier. It was established that these types of upgrades could be achieved through surgery. So, if Letty and Cipher did undergo an operation of some kind in this Fast 10 trailer scene, the theory that they are now cyborgs could be part of the franchise’s way to push the envelope from an action standpoint further.

2 Dom’s Son Dies In Fast X (Setting Up Time Travel For Fast 11)

Fast X Trailer Dom Son Brian Jason Momoa

There is also a theory that Dom’s son dies in Fast X after the trailer as a way to set up time travel for Fast & Furious 11. The entire trailer is based around the threat from Jason Momoa’s Dante that he wants to take Dom’s happy family life from him. This includes eventually kidnapping Dom’s son Brian Toretto, which brings the family in pursuit. The trailer plays up the notion that the Fast & Furious franchise is going to kill someone by having Letty mention that everyone might not make it out of this mission alive and Dante stressing how tough it will be for Dom to protect a family so large.
The biggest tease that Dom’s son dies could be the bloody Toretto cross necklace that Dom is shown holding. Brian Toretto got the necklace in F9 after Letty gave it to him. This Fast & Furious 10 theory could then be a way to set up the bigger franchise speculation that Fast 11 is going to involve time travel. Brian’s death could be the catalyst that pushed Dom, Letty, and the rest of the Toretto crew to experiment with more dangerous technology to save Little B. Fast & Furious 11’s time travel could then allow Dom and others to sacrifice themselves to save the future/past.

1 Han & Shaw Team Up To Find Gisele

The Fast X trailer is also notable for showing Han (Sung Kang) and Deckard Shaw teaming up. It comes after their surprise encounter in F9’s ending, which followed Deckard seemingly killing Han in earlier movies. There is no context given for why Han and Shaw are working together in Fast & Furious 10, leaving it up to speculation and theories to provide an answer. One such Fast X theory suggests that Han and Shaw team up to find Gisele (Gal Gadot).
The Fast & Furious franchise already has teased ways for Gisele to have survivedFast & Furious 6. It is important to remember that she supposedly died in the same event that nearly killed Deckard’s brother, Owen (Luke Evans). There is the potential for the Deckards to have knowledge that Gisele did not die, but they were not prioritizing telling the truth since they were enemies of Toretto’s crew at first. Now that Deckard and Han have reunited, Fast X could reveal that Gisele is still alive and goes on a mission to Han to find her as a chance to make up for his past sins.

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.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
