Jason Momoa revs up for 'Fast & Furious 10' as new franchise villain taking on Vin Diesel

It's Dominic Toretto vs. Aquaman.

Over the course of nine main series films and one spinoff, the Fast and Furious franchise has drafted an ever-growing roster of Hollywood superstars for supporting roles. Now, the high-octane action series has landed yet another big name to be the Big Bad of Fast and Furious 10. Get ready for Vin Diesel vs. Jason Momoa

Per the official Fast Saga twitter handle, Momoa is set to join the family for the tenth film in the main series:

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Momoa is set to play the film's new villain opposite Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and his crew of fast-driving thieves-turned-globe-trotting-adventurers. Momoa will join a long line of Diesel adversaries that has included the likes of Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Charlize Theron, and, most recently, John Cena. Many of those villains later went on to become allies of the Toretto crew, and appeared in multiple installments of the saga. Theron, who first appeared in Fate of the Furious in 2017, is also expected to return for this installment. 

Following up the release of last year's F9: The Fast SagaFast and Furious 10 is meant to serve as the penultimate installment of the main series' overarching story, which began way back in 2001 with The Fast and the FuriousF9 director Justin Lin will return to helm the film, which will star Diesel (who's also producing) and longtime co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and Sung Kang. It's not clear how many other major stars will be back for the new film, but F9's ending did also tease Statham's return, and thus the resolution of the longstanding "Justice for Han" subplot that was launched with Fast & Furious 6 back in 2013. 

Momoa's arrival in the franchise is especially interesting in the present context of the saga, as the massive saga looks to be mapping out the endgame of the mainline story. We've already seen a successful spinoff when Johnson and Statham teamed for the Hobbs & Shaw film back in 2019, and who knows, that could potentially be a template for the next phase of the franchise once the main story eventually hits the finish line. If so, Momoa will join the many A-list stars already populating that world that's ripe for even more speed and fury down the road. 

Fast and Furious 10, billed as the first part of a two-part concluding chapter in the saga, is set to hit theaters May 19, 2023.
