Michelle Rodriguez teases that Fast X’s cliffhanger ending will leave audiences shocked. Rodriguez has been a part of the high-speed action franchise since 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, having portrayed racer and mechanic Letty Ortiz across 6 films. Letty returns alongside Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto and the rest of his crew in Fast X as the team finds themselves caught in the sights of Jason Momoa’s villain Dante Reyes, who desires revenge on the crew.
When speaking to Collider ahead of the release of her fantasy epic, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Rodriguez opens up about Fast X’s ambitious cliffhanger conclusion, promising an ending that will leave audiences shocked. Director Louis Leterrier previously confirmed the movie will have a dramatic finish, but Rodriguez’s comments increase the stakes. Check out Rodriguez’s full response below:
“I think people are gonna be really, really surprised and we’re gonna get a lot of open mouths at the end of Fast X. Let’s just put it that way. It’s gonna be like, ‘Really? What?’ Like that! Like that’s how I was in theater. I was like, ‘Oh my god. What have we done?’”
How Fast X’s Ending Could Be The Franchise’s Most Emotional Conclusion Yet
While Fast X will expand its cast through new additions like Momoa, Brie Larson, Alan Ritchson, Daniela Melchior, and Hollywood icon Rita Moreno as Dom’s grandmother, the penultimate film will also see the returns of familiar faces and favorites. After debuting as an enemy in F9, John Cena is set to return as Dom’s once-estranged brother Jakob, who is now an ally. Additionally, the majority of F9’s cast, including Michael Rooker and Cardi B, will appear in Fast X. With Dom’s journey nearing its end, the ensemble cast allows longtime fans to see several favorite characters one last time.
However, Fast X may also provide the franchise with some of its highest personal stakes. While currently released promotional material has revealed Dante’s personal history with Dom’s family, the teasers have also seen the new villain promise to make Dom suffer by tearing apart those he holds dear. As such, Fast X may conclude with the potential death of a main character, with the subsequent and final film seeing Dom’s crew trying to avenge a fallen comrade.
With the family-centric, high-speed adventures of Fast and Furious nearing their end, speculation is running rampant regarding just how the increasingly over-the-top action series will conclude. Between bigger stunts, there is much interest in the heightened emotional stakes Fast X will bring. As such, with Rodriguez teasing an ending that will leave viewers stunned, many may be questioning whether they should be excited or fearful to see what lies ahead for Dom Toretto’s family in the penultimate chapter.
