10 Fast & Furious Moments That Prove Dom Is Superhuman

The Fast & Furious franchise has become more about Dom evolving into a superhero than it is about car racing or even world-ending technology and there are a number of moments that prove he’s superhuman. The series began as a crime drama about an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a gang of low-life criminals led by Dominic Toretto, but it has evolved into something much more fantastical. While the movie was silly at times, it still had verisimilitude. However, with each following sequel, the movies became less and less believable, particularly when it came to physics and what Dom was capable of.

The Fast and Furious movies have seen Dom jump between skyscrapers hundreds of feet in the air in a sports car, steer a car vertically down a dam at 150 miles per hour, and smash out of the nose of an airplane in a muscle car. Though that can all be chalked up to skillful driving, there have been a huge number of occasions when Dom has hinted at having proper superhuman abilities. The Fast and Furious 11 release could finally reveal Dom has superpowers, which wouldn’t be surprising given a long list of inexplicable events, which include Dom dodging bullets, surviving massive falls, and even flying.

10 Dom Dodges Bullets In The Fast And The Furious

The very first movie in the franchise, The Fast and the Furious, is totally grounded and realistic compared to the many sequels. However, even from the very beginning, which was a low-stakes crime movie, there were still hints of Dom being superhuman. In the final act of the movie when Johnny Tran and his men are after Jesse, Johnny pulls a drive-by on Dom’s house, and Dom, out in the open, moves like a panther across his front lawn. Despite several men shooting at Dom with machine guns, not a single bullet hits the character. Minutes later, Dom went on to survive being hit by a truck too.

9 Dom Lifts A 3,000-Pound Car In Furious 7

The most ridiculous stunt in Fast and Furious is when Dom and Brian jump between three skyscrapers in the Lykan Hypersport in Furious 7. However, one overlooked moment before that proves Dom’s super strength. Brian lists off a bunch of the vehicle’s stats, explaining, “3.4 million dollars, zero to 60 in less than three seconds. There’s less than seven of these things in the world.” However, one stat that Brian doesn’t mention is that it weighs 3000 pounds. Dom groans a little, but he lifts up the Hypersport with absolute ease as Brian works on the vehicle.

8 Dom Flips A Car With One Arm In Fast X

At this point in the franchise, nothing superhuman that Dom does would be surprising, or at least that’s how it seemed. During the shootout on the highway in Fast X, Dom flips a car with one arm, and he does so while being shot at. Unlike in Furious 7 when he lifted a 3000-pound vehicle but seemed to struggle a little, Dom flipped the vehicle in Fast X like with much more ease, and the struggle would be equal to somebody of normal strength lifting a coffee table. Dom’s superhuman strength is obviously growing as the series progresses.

7 Dom Leaps To Save Letty In Fast & Furious 6

This shot is the exact moment Fast & Furious became ridiculous, and while Fast Five, Fast & Furious, and even the original movie had their unbelievable moments of Dom’s superhuman abilities, Dom was literally flying when he saved Letty. In the scene, Letty is flung into the air when the tank she’s in comes to a sudden stop, and when Dom sees this, he intentionally crashes his car to propel himself into the air to save her. Not only did Dom briefly become Superman when he took flight, but he saved Letty by breaking her fall and landing on the hood of another car, which should have killed him.

6 Dom Causes An Earthquake By Stomping On The Ground In Furious 7

Following several cars parachuting into a no-fly zone and the Lykan Hypersport flying between skyscrapers in Dubai, what follows in Furious 7 doesn’t come as a surprise, but it’s one of the greatest examples of Dom’s superhuman abilities. At the end of his fight with Luke Shaw on the top of a multi-story parking lot, Dom stomps on the ground, which causes an Earthquake. If that wasn’t proof enough of his superpowers, Dom even sensed it before it happened. Before stomping on the ground, Dom tells Shaw, “The funny thing about street races is… the street always wins.”

5 Dom Destroys The Safe House’s Foundation With Sheer Strength In F9

In F9, Dom and his crew have an underground safe house, which seems like a labyrinth of tunnels. The one thing for sure is that the place is well-built and impossible for anyone to bring down. However, Dom proves that isn’t entirely true. When their location has been compromised and Jakob and his men attack the safe house, Dom does what he thinks is the only chance of survival, to destroy the safe house’s foundation by pulling down concrete posts with nothing but his own strength. Roman’s invincibility theory in F9, is a tongue-in-cheek joke that breaks the fourth wall, but Dom’s strength in the movie proves Roman right.

4 Dom Survives A Nuclear Submarine Blowing Up 10 Feet Away From Him In Fate Of The Furious

Dominic Toretto is Serious in Fate of the Furious

Dom should’ve died in Fate of the Furious, and the time he’s on the ice is one of many examples. In Fate of the Furious, the movie’s big set piece is the nuclear submarine, which blows up just a few feet away from Toretto. Despite being so close to the explosion, Dom walks away totally unscathed and doesn’t even have a scratch on him, even though there would have been such a great force and heat that the blast generated. In the sequence, Dom takes the limits of human endurance to a whole other level, and not even a superhero would have been able to withstand the nuclear explosion.

3 Dom Survives Crashing His Car Into A Helicopter In Furious 7

Another scene in Furious 7 shows just how catastrophic collisions aren’t any more harmful than a paper cut to Dom. In the 2015 movie, Dom drove his car directly into the helicopter, and he jumped out of the vehicle just before it hit the chopper. Director James Wan did attempt to make it seem as if Dom might have been about to die after the collision, as Letty holds him in her arms, and Dom does have a few scratches. However, there was no way Dom wasn’t going to survive, and a few minutes later, he was all cleaned up and drinking Coronas on the beach.

2 Dom Feels No Pain When He Gets Shot In Fast & Furious

The fourth movie, Fast & Furious, which was before the movie became a globetrotting action franchise, teased Dom’s superhuman abilities. Dom straight-up got shot in the movie, and while it wasn’t a headshot, he was shot in the shoulder which would still make anybody fall to the floor and writhe in pain. Instead, Dom looked at his shoulder, got angry, and beat the person who shot him to a bloody pulp. He then walks off as if it didn’t happen, and the wound isn’t even tended to. This is proof that Dom isn’t only invincible but that he doesn’t even feel pain.

1 Dom Doesn’t Burn When He Drives A Flaming Car In Fate Of The Furious

In Fate of the Furious, Dom intentionally sets an old car on fire as a tactic to evade Cipher’s men. However, after the car sets on fire, Dom simply keeps driving. He does shield himself with his forearm, but that’s hardly going to make a difference when the whole vehicle is ablaze. The movie even makes a point to show how hot the vehicle is when it cuts to the devil-red engine. The Fast & Furious franchise has become an evolutionary tale of Dom becoming a superhero, and no further proof is needed after seeing Dom not get burned when driving a vehicle that’s hotter than an oven.

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.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

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.

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