The ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise returns to showcase its new star, Jason Momoa for his 10th film

‘Fast & Furious 10’ officially announces the more villainous role of Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman.

It looks like the Fast & Furious franchise is swapping one big star for another. It has been confirmed that the latest news for this 10th film will star Jason Momoa who will take on the role of an evil figure. More details will be obtained by fans about the character that Jason Momoa will play in the future.

Momoa was spotted walking the red carpet for the premiere of the latest DC film ‘The Batman’, starring his stepdaughter Zoë Kravitz. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight about his upcoming project, Momoa confirmed his role in ‘Fast 10’, stating

“It’s fun, I get to play the bad guy, which I haven’t done in a long time. Now, I can be a bad boy. What a flamboyant and obnoxious brat!”

The shift of actors to evil roles is highly anticipated by fans, as more heroic roles are already attached to the figure of Jason Momoa, such as in Aquaman, Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’, and Game of Thrones.

‘Fast 10’, a rumored title that is expected to change, is rumored to be the last film in the franchise. Like many popular film series, the final installment will be divided into two parts to tell a longer and more detailed narrative that will bring ‘Fast & Furious’ a satisfying ending.

Expect to see the return of many stars including Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Charlize Theron. Franchise stars Dwayne Johnson and John Cena , who appeared in F9, have confirmed not to return for this latest franchise. It is unknown if Jordana Brewster will return.

Production is expected to begin this spring with the return of Justin Lin as director. Lin has directed previous ‘Fast & Furious’ projects including the standalone sequel ‘The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift’, along with the fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth installments in the main franchise. Previous writer Chris Morgan is back writing the script for the franchise’s final chapter.

Momoa’s last role as very evil came in 2017 in ‘Once Upon a Time in Venice’ with his co-star Bruce Willis. The film received poor criticism with the majority of reviews berating the role of Bruce Willis.

Seeing Momoa swap his superhero costume for something more sinister is an interesting choice. ‘Fast 10’ is expected to hit theaters on May 19, 2023, giving the studio ample time for the much-anticipated character development. Until then, we can see Momoa as the King of the Ocean in ‘Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom’ which is expected to premiere on December 16, 2022.
