10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11


Fast 11 will bring high-quality special effects, stunts, explosions, and crazy car moments, just like the rest of the franchise. Fans can expect exciting cameos from famous names, continuing a tradition that has been present throughout the Fast & Furious films. The upcoming installment must explain the return of Gisele and potentially bring back other missing characters, creating even more anticipation for Fast 11.

The upcoming Fast & Furious 11, or Fast 11, is the next action-packed installment of the franchise and is destined to become a cultural moment, which is why there are many reasons to be excited about it. The first film in the franchise, The Fast and the Furious premiered in 2001, and for over two decades, the films have become a staple of action films, taking the action in different corners of the world. Although there’s no official plot yet, the sequel will likely pick up from where Fast X ended, and has a promising cast, a story bound to provide answers, and probably more gorgeous cars and impossible survivals.

Fast X marked the beginning of the finale of the Fast Saga, but it’s unclear when the franchise will actually end. Usually, the Fast & Furious sequels acted as standalone films, but given Fast X’s cliffhanger ending, the next one will be the first sequel so intrinsically linked to the previous. Fast & Furious 11, officially titled Fast X, Part 2, set to premiere in April 2025, was meant to conclude Dom and his family’s stories. However, given how successful the Fast & Furious saga is, and Vin Diesel’s comments about the rumored Fast 12, the franchise may continue beyond Fast 11. However, there are many reasons why the upcoming installment is exciting.

The Fast Saga has built a name for itself for its impossible stunts and gravity-defying car scenes, and Fast 11 won’t disappoint in that area, and it will bring high-quality, impossible-to-believe special effects, stunts, explosions, and crazy car moments. Fast X brought the franchise back to basics with a race involving Dom and Dante, but it also had him jumping off planes and bridges, and, with the dam exploding in the last minutes of the film, Fast 11 will have plenty of intense moments. With director Louis Leterrier returning, who prioritized practical effects and real stunts in Fast X, the audience can expect similar action in Fast 11, too.

9 A New Exciting Cameo Must Happen In Fast 11
It’s already a tradition to bring a new famous name

The Fast & Furious franchise has been going for over two decades and it had many cameos over the years, including Rita Ora, Cardi B, Iggy Azalea, and more. Aside from its regular cast, Fast X had many big cameos including Paul Waker’s daughter, Meadow, as a flight attendant helping Jakob, Hollywood legend Rita Moreno, who played Mia and Dom’s grandmother, and Pete Davidson, who helped Tej, Ramsey, Han, and Roman at a computer store before reporting them to the authorities. It’s exciting to find out whether Fast 11 will continue the tradition with more big, unexpected names.

8 Fast 11 Must Explain Gisele’s Return
She appeared in the final scenes of Fast X

Gal Gadot’s character, Gisele, appeared to have died at the end of 2009’s Fast & Furious, where she fell to her death after saving Han, but made her return in Fast X. No death in the Fast & Furious franchise is ever final, and the saga has retconned many deaths so far, including Gisele’s lover’s, Han. Since there was never a body, there could be an explanation for Gisele’s return. Fast 11 will likely also explain how Gisele appeared on top of a submarine, rescuing Cipher and Letty from the Agency’s prison in Antarctica, as well as why she was working with the villain.

7 Eva Mendes’ Monica And More Characters Could Return In Fast 11
Eva Mendes’ last appearance was in Fast Five’s post-credits scene

A post-credit scene from Fast Five showed Eva Mendes’ character, Monica Fuentes, and it could set up her return in Fast 11. Monica was a big character in 2 Fast 2 Furious, but, except for her short cameo, she never returned to the franchise. Given Dante Reyes’ revenge on everyone from Fast Five, including Dom’s family and The Rock’s Hobbs, that means Mendes’ Monica could also return to Fast 11, and she is not the only one with a way in.

Besides Mendes’ Monica, other missing characters could return to Fast 11. Deckhard Shaw’s brother, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) created havoc in Fast and Furious 6, and could make a comeback in Fast 11, given that Dante is threatening his mother. Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) was missing in Fast X, and the audience could expect him to show up again. Jakob Toretto’s fate seemed final in Fast X, but since no death is final in Fast & Furious, John Cena’s Jakob could also come back.

6 Explain How Dom’s Family Survived Fast X’s Plane Crash

Fast X ended with a major cliffhanger that showed Dominic’s crew’s plane exploding, but it is incredibly unlikely they all died in that crash. Although the last film didn’t hint at their comeback given the finale’s sense of urgency, Fast 11 will surely bring them back and have an explanation about how they survived. They either had parachutes or a car they could drive off the plane’s ramp, or another explanation to bring back Tej, Roman, Ramsey, and Han.

5 Fast 11 Needs To Defeat Cipher Once And For All
Cipher can’t become a hero

Cipher came back in Fast X and struck an unlikely alliance with Letty and Gisele for their survival, but Fast 11 needs to defeat her once and for all. Director Louis Leterrier revealed there are 11 Fast & Furious clues for the sequel in Fast X, and one of them involves Cipher’s conversation with Dom and Letty at the beginning of the film. She will likely betray them again, although they could begin working together towards a common goal, as Dante also crossed Cipher. Because of that, Dom and his team need to defeat Cipher and make her pay for her crimes, as she can’t become a hero after killing Elena.

4 Letty And Dom Finding Out They Are Going To Have A Baby

Dom and Letty are the franchise’s most iconic couple, and they seemed ready to have a baby on their own in Fast X. The two already successfully parent young Brian, who is Dominic and Elena Neves’ son, and at the beginning of Fast X, Dom and Letty seemed ready to become parents together. Given the director’s comments about the clues in Fast X, the two might realize they’re expecting a baby. That could happen halfway through the movie to give Dom a reason to go on, or maybe as a reveal in the finale, as Fast 11 could end with the traditional barbecue at the Toretto house.

3 Hobbs And Shaw Teaming Up Again In Fast 11
And set up the highly-anticipated sequel

The Rock’s Hobbs made his return in a post-credit scene in Fast X, which might reunite him with Deckard Shaw in Fast 11. Jason Statham’s Shaw returned halfway through the film, and Dante posed a threat to his mother. Hobbs, who had a big say in Dante’s father’s death, also received a threatening call, and they could team up. Their movie, which served as the first spin-off in the franchise, was successful and granted a sequel that has yet to materialize. Although Hobbs is confirmed to have his own Fast & Furious film, which Fast 11 will probably set up, it could also be the start of the Hobbs & Shaw sequel.

The Rock’s return to Fast & Furious is as exciting as his reunion with Shaw for more reasons. Given his longtime feud with Fast & Furious lead Vin Diesel, his return to the franchise might put an end to their issues. At the same time, it could reunite Hobbs with Dom and the rest of the crew, which could make them more deadly to Dante.

2 Dom’s Family Has To Defeat Dante In Fast 11

There’s a change in the cards for Dante, but he has to stay a villain, and Dom and his family need to defeat him in Fast 11. Jason Momoa’s Dante Reyes proved to be a surprising villain, one who is flamboyant, has a lot of sass, and rejects the traditional rules of masculinity and villains, which proves to be a stark contrast between him and Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. Although the director hinted at a change for Momoa’s villain, showing new sides of Dante, he needs to continue to be bad and cause havoc, leading to his ultimate defeat.

This could prove to be very challenging

Fast 11 will reportedly honor Brian O’Conner somehow, and also Paul Walker. Vin Diesel confirmed the film will create a proper sendoff to the character, who was retired after Walker’s tragic death. While Diesel’s confirmation hints the audience might get a glimpse of Brian again, it also poses a major challenge for the Fast & Furious franchise and could be disrespectful and ruin his beautiful, iconic sendoff from Furious 7’s ending. However, seeing how Brian returns in Fast 11 is the most exciting thing about the upcoming installment in the iconic Fast saga.

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.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

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.

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

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.
