10 Franchises We Wish The Series Crossover With

Warning: This article contains major spoilers for F9 (Fast and Furious 9).

As Fast and Furious 9 sees the team literally build a rocket car and go into space, there’s very little else the series can do to surprise audiences. But as the franchise has completely eclipsed any kind of grounds of reality, the prospect of a movie crossover isn’t outside the realm of possibility. At least not according to Michelle Rodriguez, who wants Fast and Furious to crossover with Jurassic Park.

And with that exciting possibility, other stars of the street racing series have chimed in with their dream crossovers too, as Tyrese Gibson would love to see Fast and Furious join the Transformers movies. But with so many huge blockbuster franchises filling multiplexes these days, there are a ton of exciting spy thrillers and fantasy movies that would be so fun to see Dom and the crew star in.

Jurassic Park

As the Jurassic Park series has been built on so much with Jurassic World, the franchise could potentially expand further, and it’d be so much fun to see. As unbelievable as it is, Dom is a physics genius, but how he fairs with biology is something fans are yet to find out.

However, if Michelle Rodriguez’s dream comes true, then it won’t be long until audiences see Dom go head-to-head with genetically engineered dinosaurs. It isn’t that much of a stretch, as Dom and Hobbs are basically as tall as some of the mid-size dinosaurs.

James Bond

There are already the gadgets, the swanky vehicles, and at this point, Tej and Q are one and the same. Though Tej’s hacking makes no sense, he is ultimately the brains behind Dom’s family. But though it sounds like James Bond and the Fast series don’t necessarily need to crossover, Fast and Furious is lacking in one major department, and that’s villains.

It wouldn’t be totally illogical if Dom and his crew were hired by the British Secret Intelligence Service. All the gadgets would be far better than the ones Mr. Nobody equipped them with. Not only that, but Dom could inject some family into James Bond’s life considering that he’s so lonely.

The Wizarding World

The Wizarding World is so rich and pure that it only makes sense for the diverse and close group of characters of the Fast and Furious series to join it. Whether as members of faculty, teaching the pupils how to cast spells, or as students, dressed in uniform and exploring every nook and cranny of Hogwarts, the Fast gang could make so much great use out of the world.

The Fast series will inevitably reach concepts like magic, monsters, and flying cars at some point in the future anyway, so why not fast-track the process by turning them all into wizards?

The MonsterVerse
Kong punches Godzilla on the aircraft carrier in Godzilla Vs Kong

The MonsterVerse has had as much of a wild trajectory as the Fast and Furious series. Just like Fast and Furious evolved from street racing into the gravity-defying spy series, the MonsterVerse quickly eclipsed Godzilla with hidden valleys at the core of Earth, alien spacecraft, and gigantic robots.

Part of what makes the ham-fisted scenes in the Fast series so entertaining is the characters’ reactions to what’s happening. As most of the human characters in the MonsterVerse don’t have much of a personality, the Fast family would be great replacements. Between Dom communicating with King Kong and Rome and Tej trying to evade Godzilla in a super car, it’s the only way the MonsterVerse could become more exciting after Godzilla vs. Kong.

The Hunger Games

Fast and Furious characters have turned on each other several times in the past, whether it’s Dom working for Cipher in Fate of the Furious or Letty helping Shaw in Fast & Furious 6. But it’d be so much more fun to see them fight it out battle royale-style in The Hunger Games.

And as the ultimate question about the Fast and Furious series seems to be who would win in a fight, Hobbs or Dom, a crossover with The Hunger Games could finally answer that. However, given that both Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel’s contracts state that neither of them can lose a fight, it’ll probably never happen.

Back To The Future

Out of all of the wild concepts Fast and Furious should visit next, time travel is easily at the top of the list, and there’s no better way to incorporate it than by crossing over with the most iconic time travel movie of all time: Back To The Future.

The 1980s sci-fi series already features some iconic cars, such as the DeLorean, which coincidentally looks like the rocket car in Fast 9. As the former street racing series currently has a penchant for stunt casting, with Kurt Russel and Helen Mirren part of the all-star cast, seeing Christopher Lloyd return as Doc would be the most exciting thing to ever happen in a Fast movie.

The Hangover

Comedy isn’t the first thing fans of the Fast and Furious series think of, especially considering Dom’s stoic facial expressions. And though every mention of the word “family” might get a laugh from fans, it isn’t exactly intentionally funny.

But nothing would be funnier than Dom, Letty, Rome, Tej, and the rest of them going on a weekend trip to Las Vegas, with them having to retrace their steps the following day. Given the hijinks that Phil and Alan get up to in the Hangover series, whether it’s robbing a vault full of gold or getting into a car chase through Bangkok, the comedy franchise is actually more like Fast and Furious than people think.

Mission: Impossible
Ethan Hunt climbing the Bruj Khalifa

Fans have been comparing the Mission: Impossible movies with Fast and Furious for years now, as they both feature a team of experts globetrotting and over-the-top fight scenes.

But as there are things Mission: Impossible does better than Fast, such as the more practical stunt work, the two franchises could crossover to make for the biggest, most outrageous Hollywood blockbuster ever. On top of that, the inevitable testosterone-fuelled alpha-male fight between Dom and Ethan Hunt would be worth the price of admission alone.

Batman hugs Robin in The Lego Batman Movie

Besides the fact that the Fast characters would be turned into LEGO versions of themselves, the one thing the LEGO movie franchise is known for is the irreverent humor. Whether it’s LEGO Batman or LEGO Ninjago, the movies are constantly making jokes at the expense of the main character.

To see Dom and Letty going about their globetrotting heists whilst cracking self-deprecating jokes, which would surely come with spades of gags about Corona beers and family, would be something the loyal fans deserve.

The Jump Street Series

There have already been plans for the Jump Street series to crossover with another huge franchise in the past, as Jonah Hill was all for the comedy to join the world of Men In Black. But though that never came to fruition, it doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Between Jenko and  Schmidt racing Japanese imports, and Dom and Letty going undercover in a high school, there are limitless amounts of possibilities the crossover could go down.

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.

Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies

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.
