It’s Luke Hobbs again!
Dwayne Johnson will be making a much-anticipated return to Universal’s acclaimed Fast & Furious franchise in an unexpected change of events. The latest DC Universe project Black Adam, which he just appeared in, had a mixed response.
Dwayne Johnson, a former wrestler who is now an actor, debuted in the Fast and Furious franchise in 2011’s Fast Five as Luke Hobbs. The adored actor earlier declined a co-star Vin Diesel‘s request to take part in Fast X amid allegations of a developing conflict between the two muscle giants.
After Dwayne Johnson‘s superhero film Black Adam underperformed at the box office, he decided to return to the Fast and Furious franchise. Black Adam’s performance was seen to be unimpressive in comparison to other recent superhero movies, despite having a decent total of $393.3 million. Teth-Adam will thus not be a part of the next DC Universe projects planned by renowned authors James Gunn and Peter Safran.
Fast X, the franchise’s tenth entry, is slated to be an exciting continuation of the high-octane action that spectators have grown to adore. With over $5 billion in international sales, the series has become a cultural phenomenon and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Fast X is being directed by Louis Leterrier, who is using a story by Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau. Leterrier took over for Lin, who quit as a director due to disagreements with the team. Lin is still listed as a producer with Vin Diesel, Neal H. Moritz, Jeff Kirschenbaum, Joe Roth, Clayton Townsend, and Samantha Vincent despite leaving the post.
Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, John Cena, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, Sung Kang, Cardi B, Scott Eastwood, Michael Rooker, Jason Statham, and Charlize Theron are among the Fast & Furious cast members who appear in Fast X. Jason Momoa, Brie Larson, Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson, and Rita Moreno are franchise newcomers.
