How Fast & Furious 10 Can Actually Top F9’s Space Travel

The Fast & Furious franchise is bigger and more outlandish than ever, it’s not immediately obvious where Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 can go after F9’s space travel. The Fast Saga, having largely left street racing behind, has defied the expectations of its small-scale origins in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, which took the basic premise of Point Break and put it on wheels. Eight sequels and a Hobbs & Shaw spin-off later, the Fast Saga is one of the biggest action movie franchises of all time. Now, having conquered outer space, the question is where the franchise can possibly venture next.

With the series’ rise in popularity has come a commensurate dip in the movies maintaining any concern for realism or logic. Particularly since the success of 2011’s Fast Five, the Fast Saga has introduced more and more sci-fi elements, the car stunts now often being literally impossible, and the whole series having a superhero-esque feel. F9 drove right into that trajectory, taking the series into space with a space car piloted by Tej (Ludacris) and Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson).

The Fast Saga is set to conclude with a two-part finale in Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11, while Vin Diesel has also publicly reached out to The Rock to rejoin the proper series after the two’s ongoing feud. As it speeds to its finale, the series shows no signs of walking back its pattern of pushing the envelope of reality, and there’s still plenty of new territory it can go into. Here’s how Fast 10 and 11 can possibly outdo F9’s space travel.

More Space Travel (To The Moon)

The easiest way for Fast 10 & 11 to outdo the space travel component of F9 is to simply expand on it. With the makeshift space car and spacesuits, Roman and Tej were able to get as far as the orbit of Earth in order to stop the satellite device of Cipher. The Fast Saga, now having introduced space travel to the mix, can visit space again, and this time take the trip to the stars further than F9’s space travel.

The moon would be a good spot for Dom and his crew to venture to, this time with the whole gang along for the ride. Tej, as the team’s tech expert, could even be the one to outfit more cars to be fit for space travel, and Charlize Theron’s ruthless villainess Cipher could easily be expected to think along similar lines. However Fast 10 and 11 go about it, now that F9 has taken one small step, they can make the giant leap to the moon.

Fast and Furious time travel back to the future

Another idea that’s been proposed is for Fast 10 & 11 to bring time-travel into the franchise. With the Fast Saga adopting sci-fi as its new topping, time-travel would fit right in, especially after F9 ventured into space. Time-travel could even be the sci-fi plot device that could most fit into the family theme of the franchise.

With Fast 10 and 11 to be a two-part finale, revisiting some events in the earlier movies in the series could be a great way to wrap the story up in a way that shows how far Dom and co. have come. It could also be used as a Terminator-like time-travel plot by Cipher to eliminate her enemies once and for all. Either way, time-travel is now a better idea than ever for the Fast & Furious franchise.

Underwater & The High Seas

One frontier the theatrical Fast Saga has also never explored is the seven seas, so Fast 10 and 11 could take the series onto the oceans with cars that also convert into boats, but it need not stop there. Tej’s tech genius would also makes it possible that the aquatic vehicles captained by Dom and his family could be converted into mini-submarines, enabling the Fast Saga to go on an Aquaman-style adventure for the first time.

This actually wouldn’t be new territory for the franchise either, as the Netflix animated series Fast & Furious: Spy Racers has introduced underwater cars to the Fast Saga. This means that the foundation has already been set for Fast 10 or 11 to continue this. It would also be another sci-fi plot point that would play right into the villainy of both Cipher and the Eteon terrorist group, who could even have an underwater base of operations that the final showdown of Fast 10 or 11 could take place in.

With the Fast Saga embracing technology right out of a sci-fi movie, Fast 10 and 11 could also implement teleportation quite easily. Doing this could add a whole new element to the car-based action sequences of the series, Dom and his crew now able to bypass traffic and other obstacles instantaneously. On the villain side, it would be an equally viable instrument, and one Fast & Furious evildoer, in particular, could be just the man to bring teleportation into the series.

Hobbs & Shaw’s Brixton Lore (Idris Elba) is already the most formidable villain of the Fast Saga, having been bestowed with cybernetic upgrades by Eteon. Brixton seemingly died when Eteon de-activated him in Hobbs and Shaw, but there’s little reason why he couldn’t simply be re-activated with more augmentations by Eteon. With the merging of man and machine that he already began as, Brixton could be the perfect character to integrate teleportation into the Fast Saga.

Flying Cars

With F9 getting the ball rolling on cars leaving the ground and heading into the sky, flying cars in the vein of Back to the Future Part II would be another outlandish element the Fast Saga could easily embrace. A quick look back on the series even indicates that flying cars is something that the long-running Fast & Furious series has seemingly been inching towards, with parachuting cars and Dom jumping one car across several Abu Dhabi skyscrapers in Furious 7. The space car in F9 took the series further in that direction, so cars that can zip through the air like an actual highway could be where it finally lands.

Tej would once again be the main technical hand in retrofitting cars to be capable of flight. Moreover, flying cars could also be a tool in the villain plot of Fast 10 and 11, especially after the magnetic truck of F9. Out of all the possibilities for the Fast Saga’s future, flying cars seem like the least outrageous, and the one that would be the easiest to implement.

Dominic toretto Fast and furious crossover Jurassic Park World

There’s also been some talk of the Fast Saga having a crossover with the Jurassic World movies, but while the former could certainly move in that direction with little difficulty, it seems much less likely for Jurassic World to make such a crossover attempt. Despite this, Fast 10 and 11 could easily bring dinosaurs into the series with the tone of the franchise. There would even be multiple ways that the Fast Saga could go about this.

One way would be for Cipher and/or Eteon to genetically engineer dinosaurs as the ultimate weapon to unleash on the world, with Dom and his family revving up to stop them. Additionally, Fast 10 or 11 could kill get two wild sci-fi concepts for the price of one by using the time-travel idea to either send Dom and co. back to the time of the dinosaurs, or have Cipher, Eteon, or some other villain use a time-travel device to bring the dinosaurs into the modern world of man. With multiple avenues to integrate dinosaurs into the Fast Saga with, some Fast & Furious-style car chases with dinosaurs in hot pursuit could be the next peak of glorious popcorn absurdity that the franchise does so well.

The Fast Saga is always full of surprises, and where it’s gotten to with magnet tanks, space travel, and supervillains still seems unlikely to be the peak of where it can go. The most important constant throughout the Fast & Furious movies is the franchise’s theme of family. While challenges remain on whether or not Diesel and Johnson’s feud will end and make a return by Luke Hobbs possible, as long as Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 hold onto their family theme, there’s no restrictions on bringing in time-travel, dinosaurs, or anything in between, or beyond.

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.

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.
