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 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.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return

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.
