While it should now be set in stone that we won’t see Dwayne Johnson in » Fast & Furious 10 » after » Fast & Furious 9 » either, main actor and producer Vin Diesel has long been in the process of replacing the Samoan radiant man with plenty of star power . After DC audience favorite Jason Momoa («Aquaman»), who will slip into the role of Dominic Toretto and Co.’s adversary, Brie Larson , an MCU star, awaits us in the upcoming speeder adventure. The 32-year-old has been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2019 («Captain Marvel»), will return on February 15, 2023 in «Captain Marvel 2: The Marvels» — and now also part of Vin Diesel’s family.
Vin Diesel himself announced Brie Larson’s commitment on social media and, befitting his status, once again promises big things:
Even if the picture mainly shows «love and laughter», you don’t see how big and important Larson’s character would become for the mythology of the «Fast» saga. Exactly what that means, however, remains to be seen. More details about Larson’s part have not yet been revealed.
«Fast & Furious»: More star power is hardly possible
In «Fast 10», in which Justin Lin («Fast & Furious 3-6» and «Fast & Furious 9») is once again directing, Michelle Rodriguez as tough Letty, Tyrese Gibson as Poacher Roman, Sung Kang as Han risen from the dead, Ludacris as tech ace Tej, Nathalie Emmanuel as relentlessly courted hacker Ramsey and Oscar winner Charlize Theron as nasty antagonist Cipher.
Speaking of Oscar winners: There are now a whole series of them in “Fast & Furious”. In addition to Helen Mirren (for «The Queen») and Theron (for «Monster»), newcomer Brie Larson already has one of the coveted golden boys at home. In 2016, she won Best Actress for her performance in the kidnapping drama Raum.
