A year and a half after Dwayne Johnson reject the public request of Vin Diesel to return to the franchise Fast and Furiousalready a week after the premiere of Fast X in theaters, it is confirmed that The Rock YES will be back for the tenth installment.
As they read it. The Rock is back in the saga. According to exclusive reports from The Wrap, Johnson will be making an appearance during the film’s post-credits scene.so be careful with that, and don’t forget to stay until the end of them.
To put ourselves in context, we tell you that Johnson has appeared in four films in the franchise, since his debut in Fast Five (2011), with which he became one of the favorites of the audience playing Luke Hobbs, and later participating in Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7, y The Fate of the Furious. Diesel and Johnson had a public dispute in 2016, during the filming of the aforementioned eighth installment., The Fate of the Furiousmarking his departure from the saga, continuing his own path as Hobbs with the spinoff Hobbs & Shawin which she starred opposite Jason Statham.
Later, already in November 2021, Diesel asked Johnson to return to the saga through a post on Instagram, which was not well received by The Rock, telling CNN at that time the following: “I told [a Diesel] directly that he would not return to the franchise. I was firm but kind with my words and said that I would always support the cast and always support the franchise to succeed, but there was absolutely no chance of me coming back. Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. I didn’t like that he involved his children in the publication, as well as the death of Paul Walker. Leave them out. We had talked months ago about this and we came to a clear understanding.”
The news about Johnson’s return seems to leave behind the differences that existed between the two, or at least, that they have decided to end it and meet on screen once more as the franchise approaches its end. Fast X will be divided not in two, but in three partsas was confirmed moments ago.
