Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11


Dom will likely sacrifice himself for his family, mirroring Iron Man’s fate in Avengers: Endgame.
Brian and Mia will finally get a proper sendoff in Fast 11, bringing closure to their story.
Letty may assume leadership of Dom’s family if he dies, ensuring the saga ends on a fitting note.

The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – the second volume of Fast X – but how will Dominic Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end? Throughout its entire run, the Fast & Furious franchise’s M.O. has been to keep going indefinitely. The mainline series is 10 movies deep and seems to still be going strong, but the plan is to conclude the saga with Fast 11. Fast X was intended to function as the first part of a two-part finale, Avengers-style, and Fast 11 will be the final chapter of Dom’s cinematic journey.

After the open-ended cliffhanger in the final scene of Fast X, the sky is the limit for Fast 11’s finale. From Dom to Brian to Letty to Hobbs and Shaw, there are a lot of characters whose stories need to be wrapped up in the final Fast & Furious movie. Dom could die, Hobbs could ride off into the sunset, and Roman and Tej could be set up for a spin-off series – there are plenty of theories for the Fast & Furious series’ long-awaited ending. Here are some predictions for how the characters’ endings will shake out in Fast 11.

10 Dominic Toretto Will Sacrifice Himself For His Family
Dom will be the Iron Man of Fast & Furious’ Endgame

If Fast 11 is being modeled after Avengers: Endgame as the big finale of an action-packed cinematic saga, then one of the heroes is likely to die in the final battle – and it’ll probably be Dom. If Fast 11 is Fast & Furious’ Endgame, then Dom is its Iron Man. Dom’s entire character has been defined by his undying love for his family and his willingness to do whatever it takes to keep them safe.

In that spirit, it would make sense for Dom to make the ultimate sacrifice for his family in Fast 11. The franchise’s penchant for keeping the story going for as long as possible has resulted in a lack of stakes and consequences. No characters in this series stay dead. Killing off Dom would be a heartbreaking way to end this saga with some bittersweet finality.

9 Brian O’Conner & Mia Toretto Will Properly Settle Down
Brian and Mia have been settled down for a while, but they need a proper ending

Ever since Paul Walker passed away, Brian O’Conner – and, by extension, his love interest Mia Toretto – have been kept off-screen. They’ve been mentioned in passing, usually to say that they’ve settled down with their family. Vin Diesel has already teased that Fast 11 will give Brian a proper goodbye. This is a good sign, because Brian deserves a true farewell, and the final movie has to acknowledge him.

This could mean that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, who stood in for him in Furious 7, could return to give Brian one last Fast & Furious scene. It’s one thing to say that Brian and Mia have settled down, but it needs to be shown on-screen. For Fast 11 to feel like a conclusive ending to the saga, audiences need to see Brian and Mia at peace, enjoying their life together, even if it’s just for a second.

8 Letty Ortiz Will Assume Leadership Of Dom’s Found Family

If Dom does make the ultimate sacrifice and die to save his family in Fast 11, then it’s likely that his wife Letty Ortiz will take up his mantle. With Dom out of the picture, someone else will have to become the head of his found family. Since Letty is Dom’s closest ally and his partner-in-life as well as his partner-in-crime, she would be the best candidate to lead the family in his absence.

This would mean that the franchise could continue with a new chapter – this time, led by Letty – and Michelle Rodriguez has the movie star chops to assume franchise leadership after Diesel’s departure. Even if the franchise doesn’t carry on after Fast 11, making Letty the new leader would leave the family in safe hands. It would be a fitting ending to this long-running story.

7 Roman Pearce & Tej Parker Will Go Off On Their Own Solo Adventures
Roman and Tej are primed for their own spin-off series

Just because the mainline Fast & Furious series is ending with Fast 11, it doesn’t mean that Universal is done making money from Fast & Furious movies. Fast 11 is likely to set up a couple of spin-offs to give the franchise a second life after the end of Dom’s journey. Two characters who are primed for the spin-off treatment are Roman Pearce and Tej Parker, who could headline a series of great “buddy cop” actioners.

Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris have shared terrific on-screen chemistry throughout their entire Fast & Furious tenure. It feels like their dynamic is being underutilized with supporting roles in these films. Their chemistry is strong enough to support an entire movie franchise of its own. After Fast 11, a series of Roman and Tej movies could be on the cards.

6 Han Lue & Gisele Yashar Will Be Reunited

Han Lue was killed off as far back as The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, then reappeared in the next three movies, which all took place before Tokyo Drift, before the series finally caught up with his death in Fast & Furious 6. In both the post-credits scene of Fast & Furious 6 and flashbacks in Furious 7, Han’s death was shown again to remind viewers of what happened to him. This was just after Han lost the love of his life, Gisele Yashar, who sacrificed herself to save him in Fast & Furious 6’s final battle.

In F9, it was revealed that Han wasn’t really dead after all. And in Fast X, it was revealed that Gisele wasn’t really dead after all. In Fast 11, these two lovebirds need to be reunited so they can resume their relationship.

5 Luke Hobbs Will Ride Off Into The Sunset After One Last Victory
Dwayne Johnson has already teased how Hobbs’ journey will end

The end of Luke Hobbs’ story isn’t just confined to Fast 11; he’s also taking center stage in a Hobbs-centric sequel to the Fast & Furious franchise’s first official spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw. Dwayne Johnson already teased how Hobbs’ story will end, promising that audiences will see him “walk off into the sunset.” This is the typical ending for notorious gunslingers in the western genre.

Hobbs was always an outlier in Dom’s family. He’s not as closely tied to the group as Letty or Brian; he’s a friend and ally who stops by to help them when they’re in a jam. Hobbs’ ending will likely see him as more of a lone wolf than a ride-or-die member of the family. After one last victory, he can finally hang up his hat and head off to lead a peaceful existence.

4 Deckard Shaw Will Continue His Mercenary Career For Good Causes

By the end of the Fast & Furious saga, it’s unlikely that Deckard Shaw will change too much, because he’s very set in his ways. But he has gotten a lot more heroic since he saved Dom’s son and made peace with Dom’s family. Shaw will probably still be a mercenary for hire by the end of Fast 11, but he might be taking jobs that hurt bad people and save innocent people, sort of like a vigilante.

Since Hobbs’ spin-off series is continuing without Shaw, Shaw could similarly go off on his own solo adventures. He could become the guy who does bad things for good people. If he becomes the kind of mercenary that Joaquin Phoenix played in You Were Never Really Here, it would set up a really exciting, really gritty Shaw solo series.

3 Ramsey Will Get A Cushy Government Job

Ramsey is a late addition to Dom’s family, but her skills as a hacker have been invaluable to the team’s exploits. The movies have demonstrated that Ramsey is so proficient at figuring out computer systems and cracking their security that she’s being underutilized as the I.T. technician of a mercenary squad. If Dom’s family disbands at the end of Fast 11, Ramsey could take a cushy government position in the field of surveillance.

While most of Dom’s comrades are ne’er-do-wells who couldn’t hack it in a normal job, Ramsey is a good person. At the end of Fast 11, following her final rubber-burning adventure with Dom and co., she might go legit. She’s always been a likable character, so it would be great to see her get a happy ending (with a steady government income).

2 Cipher Will Complete Her Transition From Villain To Hero

When Cipher was first introduced in The Fate of the Furious, she was the ultimate Fast & Furious villain. She managed to blackmail Dom into turning against his family, which is something that no Fast villain before her or since has been able to do. Cipher is a great character, so she’s continued to pop up in the subsequent movies, and in Fast X, she started a redemption arc.

In Fast X, Letty was locked up in a black-site prison in Antarctica and was surprised to find Cipher locked up in the same prison. Since they both faced a common enemy, they reluctantly joined forces to break out of there. Based on Cipher’s arc so far, it seems as though, at the end of Fast 11, she’ll have completed her transition from villain to hero.

1 Dante Reyes Will Make Peace With Dom’s Family

Dante Reyes is one of the only Fast & Furious villains whose tenure has extended beyond a single movie. Reyes’ revenge plot is so extravagant that Dom and co. aren’t even close to thwarting it by the end of Fast X, ending the movie on a cliffhanger to be resolved in Fast 11. It might seem like Reyes is too far gone to be redeemed, but that’s the pattern followed by almost every past Fast & Furious villain.

From Shaw to Cipher, every villain who has sought vengeance against Dom’s family has eventually made peace with them and become an ally. If Reyes doesn’t do the same by the end of Fast 11, it’ll be tough to get a real sense of closure on the Fast & Furious saga. Fast 11 could even set up Reyes for a future team-up.

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.

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.
