Vin Diesel's Fast X' New Character's Connection To The Plot

Since Fast X's 4 minutes trailer was released 9 days ago, Fast's fans around the world are dreaming and speculating with the different possibilities brought to the plot with the new characters. In this blog we are going to add some details and flavors to these new characters.

Now that the first Fast X trailer has been released, there is a much more clear picture of what the movie will be. The main story appears to revolve around Jason Momoa's Dante Reyes setting out for revenge against Dom Toretto and his team for taking away his family. This will put the various members of Dom's crew in danger, possibly even forcing some to switch sides, and bring other characters back into the franchise's plan. While there have been plenty of Fast & Furious 10 theories since even before the trailer was released, the footage shown helps create even more and adds new evidence to support existing ones.

The beginning of the trailer shows the famous family reunion at Toretto's home and Dom’s mother, Academy Award winner Rita Moreno, speaking to the table about how much they all have endured and yet persisted together as a family. I love it!! we don't know yet why it took this long to grandma to show up to share time with the family, but I assume that the meeting of Dom and Helen Mirren (returning as Deckard’s mother, Magdalene “Queenie”), that we saw taking place between them in Rome has something to do with this family reunion.

In Fast X Jason Momoa plays a villain, his name is Dante Reyes, who is the son of Hernan Reyes interpreted by Joaquin De Almada, the corrupt politician, drug lord and business man, (he was also the main antagonist in the film), killed by Luke Hobbs in Fast Five. The man whose vault, containing $100 million from drugs dealers, was stolen by Dom and Brian.

Dante Reyes is coming to avenge not only his father’s death (killed by agent Luck Hobbs), but also to revenge the lost of his successful and brilliant future that Dom and Brian took away from him at the moment that they destroyed his father's public reputation and credibility including his vault full of money. In the trailer Dante, was inside one dark silver SUV, and fell into the river after Dom hit it with the vault attached to his car via a cable.

When Dom and Brian are stealing the vault, behind them in the second car was Herman Reyes and his right-hand man, Zizi, those are some of the new scenes added to the original Fast Five film in this Fast X version to be able to included the majority of the new characters linked to the current plot since about 12 years ago.

The Fast X trailer has already demonstrated that the movie will use old footage to bring old characters back. This is best demonstrated by the prominent role of Paul Walker, who many believe should have exited the franchise for good after his perfect send-off in Furious 7. However, if flashbacks are also used for Gisele, there's a risk that Fast X could disappoint fans hoping for an official comeback. Arguably, this approach could also lessen the emotional impact of seeing Brian on screen again, as Gal Gadot could still feasibly return to the franchise. Whatever approach the movie takes, the use of Fast Five flashbacks has major implications for how a Gisele return – if it happens at all – could take place.

At the bottom of this blog, I have attached the videos related to those Fife Five's action scenes if you would like to remind them correctly to double cross with the new scenes and characters added into Fast X.

Kurt Russell as Mr. Nobody & Brie Larson as Tess, his daughter

Brie Larson is Tess, a rogue agent belonging to the agency and Mr. Nobody's daughter, I'm not too sure about Mr. Nobody's paternity but that is what sounds around until today!! In another note, according director Louis Leterrier, in this film Tess is the light at the end of the tunnel for Dom.

Alan Ritchson as Agent Aimes

Behind Dom we are also able to see other new character, Alan Ritchson (Amazon Prime’s “Reacher”) as Agent Aimes, head of the agency if he is replacing Hobbs now, and probably second on board back in those days that Luck Hobbs used to be an active agent. More than probably than Alan Ritchson, as agent Aimes is Luke Hobbs’ replacement in future Fast and Furious instalments.

Vin Diesel as Dom Toretto saving Daniela Melchior's life

During the trailer release event director Louis Leterrier revealed more story details for the upcoming film and teases that, in addition to shifting allegiances, there will be some major casualties. I don't have a clue who the casualties will be yet but I do know at least one of the shifting allegiances. But talking about shifting allegiances, is were we located Daniela Melchior 's character.
