The larger updates on Fast X’s plot are still kept under wraps, obviously to avoid much speculations and rumors. However, Tyrese Gibson revealed in a recent interview that Fast & Furious 10 would feature more details about Dom’s past. The imminent movie is going to be the first of a two-part finale that will finale put the franchise to bed for good.
Earlier in April 2021 at the F9 trailer press conference, Vin Diesel already explained the reason for the splitting of the movie into two parts.
He stated, “As you know, we get to travel to all these wonderful places. And they’re part of the reason why Fast [and Furious] 10 has to be broken into two different movies — it’s because there’s so much ground to cover. And there are so many places in so many locations in the world that we have to visit.”
Speaking with Comic Book in August 2022, Nathalie Emmanuel said “the stakes are higher on a more personal level in this [film]”, indicating a more grounded approach compared to previous installations.
In the case of Fast & Furious spinoff, Charlize Theron confirms to Variety that Vin Diesel told him he is working on a spinoff movie that will be centered on Theron’s character, Cipher.
