Fast X Death Theory Explains Why Fast 11 Will Use Time Travel

A heartbreaking Fast X theory suggests Dominic Toretto’s son will die – setting up Fast & Furious 11 using time travel. The two upcoming Fast & Furious movies are confirmed to be the final entries in the main Fast Saga, and plenty of theories have popped up about what will happen as a result. Thanks to the franchise’s increasingly wild plots, there has been a popular theory that Fast & Furious 11 will use time travel as part of the franchise finale’s story.

The idea of time travel in Fast & Furious 11 is not as ludicrous of a thought as it would have been several years ago. However, the movie still needs to find a plausible reason for the plot device to be utilized in the Fast & Furious franchise. The films might have finally gone to space in F9, but a jump to time travel is much bigger. Many of the theories have pointed to Fast 11’s time travel being used to bring back previous cast members or revisit key sequences from the franchise’s history. Fast X might suggest the real reason that Dominic Toretto turns to such an extreme measure.

The beginning of the Fast X marketing campaign included heavily teasing a major death among Dominic Toretto’s family. The Fast & Furious movies have expanded the meaning of family beyond blood relatives, as everyone in Dom’s crew is considered part of his family at this point. Jason Momoa’s Fast X villain Dante makes a point of calling out how dangerous of a position this puts Dom in. The bigger his family becomes, the tougher time he will have to make sure they all stay safe. Since Dante is connected Fast Five’s villain, his entire revenge plot is about taking away some of Dom’s happiness and family members.

The danger that Dominic Toretto’s family is in during Fast X’s trailer is also reflected through their own thoughts. One line in the trailer from Letty mentions the chance that someone does not come back from this new mission. An incredibly telling line comes from Dom at the beginning of the footage too. He reflects on a statement made by his son, Brian Toretto, that Dom is not afraid of anything. He confesses that this is not true and that he is terrified of losing the ones he loves. All these moments are used to tease someone dying in Fast X.

A tragic theory born from the Fast X trailer suggests that the heartbreak will come from Dom’s son, Brian, dying in the movie. The marketing footage puts a heavy emphasis on the importance of Brian Toretto to the movie’s plot. He is the one Dom is looking at when his line about being scared of losing someone he loves plays across the trailer. Similarly, the Fast X trailer confirms that he will be put in a very dangerous position after Dante kidnaps him. This brings Vin Diesel’s character in direct pursuit of Jason Momoa’s villain, and that could put Brian in even more danger as Dom attempts his rescue mission.

Another piece of evidence to support the Fast 10 theory that Dom’s son Brian dies comes with a glimpse of the Toretto cross necklace. Dom is shown holding the necklace at one point, and it appears that there is blood on it. Based on the events of F9, it is known that Dom’s brother Jakob Toretto has an identical necklace. Crucially, F9 also saw Letty give Brian the Toretto cross necklace Dom gifted her. Since Jakob’s death would not be that emotionally impactful, the bloody Toretto cross necklace could be a sign of Dom’s son dying in Fast X.

Dom’s Son Dying Could Explain Fast & Furious 11 Using Time Travel

Dom’s son dying in Fast X would be devastating for the characters and audiences, but it could also be the moment that helps explain Fast & Furious 11 using time travel. Vin Diesel’s character would surely be haunted by Brian’s death, especially if he came up short of saving him or was in some way responsible for further endangering him. The pain of losing his son could push Dom to explore any option to get little Brian back. As a result, Fast 11’s time travel story could begin to formulate.

While Dom is in many ways hesitant to rely too heavily on technology, preferring to instead rely on his skills as a driver, traveling time is not something he can accomplish on his own. It is possible that Fast & Furious 11 could see Dom learn about some means to achieve time travel. Whether this would require an uneasy alliance with a tech-based villain or mean going back in time for a questionable mission, Dom could see both as a necessary means to an end if it means getting Brian Toretto back.

Instead of Fast 11’s time travel twist coming out of nowhere or having slightly ridiculous reasoning behind it (like F9’s space cars), a time travel mission to save Dom’s son after he dies in Fast X is a rather believable evolution for the franchise. It keeps the core focus on family, and audiences would likely at least get behind a time travel plot if it meant bringing Brian Toretto back to life. This would still allow the final Fast & Furious movie to revisit past entries and events but without it feeling unnecessarily forced.

It is possible that Fast X killing Dom’s son is also a way to help set up Vin Diesel’s franchise-leading character dying in Fast & Furious 11. Speculation about Dominic Toretto dying has risen since Fast 11 is meant to be the last movie in the main Fast Saga. Diesel has spoken about wanting the franchise finale to have a sense of closure to it, and there is no greater example of that happening than killing the main character. This would be even more fitting for Dom’s arc if he dies in Fast 11 as a means to ensure that Brian survives and becomes the franchise’s new lead.

There is certainly an argument to be made that Dom dying in Fast & Furious 11 to save his son would be a good conclusion to his story. However, Vin Diesel and Universal might be hesitant to commit to such a definitive ending for the character. Even with time travel introduced, Dom’s death would eliminate Diesel from making future appearances in the franchise. Both the star and the studio likely want to keep that option on the table in case the Fast & Furious franchise does not continue successfully after the main saga ends. Still, the Fast X theory that Dom’s son could connect nicely to Fast & Furious 11.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
