F9 Has Big Fast & Furious 10 Plot Clues: Let’s Discuss

F9: The Fast Saga sets up a lot of story threads for Fast and Furious 10. Before the film’s release, it was announced that the tenth Fast and Furious film would be split into two parts, similar to Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. That means there’s still a lot of absurd action coming for the Fast family, and must of those plot beats have already been set up in F9.

Like The Fate of the Furious before it, F9 takes a more big-picture approach to its story. The Fate of the Furious introduced Charlize Theron’s Cipher as the series’ new main villain, retconning the events of both Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7 by revealing that she had been pulling the strings from the shadows all along. That larger scale has allowed the franchise to go to even more ridiculous places with its story and action scenes, with F9 being perhaps the most absurd Fast and Furious film yet.

With what’s sure to be a massive two-part finale on the horizon, F9 drops a lot of plot clues for what’s to come in the future. Enemies and allies are set up, old conflicts are resurrected, and the fate of the entire world hangs in the balance.

Fast & Furious 10 Will Give Justice For Han
Han and Deckard Shaw from Fast & Furious.

Like most major franchise blockbusters these days, F9: The Fast Saga has a post-credits scene. In it, Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw character – the man who tried unsuccessfully to kill Han Lue in Furious 7 – is confronted by Han himself. The scene cuts to black before either character has a chance to speak, but the implication is clear – Han has come to claim justice for the crime Deckard committed against him.

F9 does a strong job of bringing Han back into the fold and making him central to the story once again. But it doesn’t truly give him the justice fans have been asking for. By having him confront Shaw in the film’s final show, F9 promises that Han’s story is far from over. Whether or not his feud with Shaw will wrap up in a way that satisfies fans remains to be seen, but it looks like Fast and Furious 10 will at least address their conflict head-on. Some fans are even speculating that the two characters could be the leads in a new F&F spinoff akin to Hobbs & Shaw, expanding their story and their role in the final two core films.

Cipher Will Still Be The Villain In Fast & Furious 10

Sometime between The Fate of the Furious and F9, Cipher is apprehended by Mr. Nobody. She’s busted out by Jakob and his crew at the start of F9, however, and she’s once again at large by the end of the film. With Fast and Furious building toward a major climax in the next two movies, it makes a lot of sense for the series to keep Cipher around as a Thanos-esque main villain. Fast and Furious 10 will likely see her pursuing some new world-endangering scheme, prompting Dom and the crew to stop her once again. It’s also possible that Cipher could come after Fast family directly, as payback for the numerous times they’ve disrupted her plans. All that’s completely certain is that Cipher is still a major threat.

Jakob Will Join The Family In Fast & Furious 10

By the end of F9: The Fast Saga, Dom and Jakob make amends for their past transgressions and seem to reaccept each other as brothers. However, because of Jakob’s global crimes, which presumably include murder, espionage, and trying to take over every computer system on the planet, they can’t remain together. The Toretto family is broken up again just as it’s reformed, with Jakob driving off into the sunset towards a life of running from the law.

Obviously, Jakob’s story in the Fast and Furious franchise is far from over. He’ll certainly play a big role in the story of Fast and Furious 10, and could even properly join the family. Most of the series’ main characters have been wanted fugitives at one time or another, and since Deckard Shaw was seemingly forgiven for his crimes against Dom and the crew, it seems like no transgression is unforgiven in the Fast universe. With Cipher still on the loose and a love of family back in Jakob’s heart, it should be interesting to see how he factors into the next movie.

Will The Tokyo Drift Crew Return In Fast & Furious 10?

Tokyo Drift has always been the odd movie out in the franchise, starring characters who, other than Han, have never been important to the overall story. F9 changes that by bringing back Sean, Twinkie and Earl as a team of experimental mechanics and officially admitting them to the family in the film’s final scene. Those characters weren’t exactly the most compelling or complex in Tokyo Drift, but as supporting characters bent on constructing the most ridiculous cars imaginable in F9, they actually become fun additions to the Fast world.

If the Tokyo crew is brought back in Fast and Furious 10, which seems likely, they could be the key to bringing the franchise even bigger and sillier action set pieces. Sean, Twinkie and Earl basically serve as substitutes for Mr. Nobody’s shadow organization in F9 – the narrative explanation for why Dom and the crew have access to cars and tools that border on science fiction. The Tokyo Drift characters have never been better than they are in F9, and bringing them back in the next movie could open up some really fun possibilities.

Will Mr. Nobody Return In Fast & Furious 10?
Mr Nobody giving orders in Furious 7.

Kurt Russell returns as Mr. Nobody in F9, but only for a few brief scenes, including one in which he recorded an SOS message to Dom and the crew. Mr. Nobody is nowhere to be seen at the crash site of his airplane, and he doesn’t appear anywhere else in the movie either. The natural assumption is that Mr. Nobody is dead, and that may indeed be the case. However, as a secret agent in one of the most ludicrous franchises Hollywood has ever seen, it seems more likely that he’s just waiting in the background for the right moment to return. If the next two F&F films are going to be as climactic as the cast and crew have said, it seems likely that Mr. Nobody will be back to battle against Cipher and the forces of evil. Or maybe his rescue will be the thing that forces Dom back into action one more time.

Will Brian Appear In Fast & Furious 10?

Because of Paul Walker’s death, his Brian O’Conner character has effectively been written out of the Fast and Furious franchise. The series has done an admirable job of paying respect to the star, however, and F9 continues that trend with a closing shot of Brian’s signature blue Nissan Skyline. It seems likely that references and offscreen homages will be the most Brian will get for the rest of the series, out of respect for Walker and a desire not to recast the character. However, it also seems like a challenge to give real closure to the Fast story without bringing Brian back. In all likelihood, Brian will continue to have a narrative role in Fast and Furious 10, but one that will probably still refrain from any actual face time. Furious 7 and F9 have both done impressive jobs of paying tribute to Walker while also incorporating bits of Brian, and it should be interesting to see how the character plays into the last two films.

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.

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.
