Dominic Toretto’s past is looked into where he is returning with a vengeance and its latest casting reveal suggests that audiences will see a glimpse of Dom’s past in flashbacks. Vin Diesel’s son Vincent Sinclair will play a younger Dominic in the latest film in the Fast & Furious franchise, as reported by EW. Sinclair filmed his F9 scenes in 2019 before the movie was delayed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Sinclair will be the second actor to play young Dominic Toretto in the blockbuster franchise, following Alex McGee’s Furious 7 role. Although the context of Sinclair’s F9 scenes is unknown, fans speculated that his role will explore Dom’s relationship with secret brother Jakob (John Cena).
An adult version of Jakob appeared in F9’s first trailer as one of the film’s major antagonists, teaming up with Charlize Theron’s Cipher. Jakob is seen joining Cipher’s revenge plan against Dom and his crew for the events of Fate of the Furious. The trailers described Jakob as a “master thief, assassin, high-performance driver,” while keeping the reason for the brothers’ estrangement secret. Alongside Sinclair and Cena’s franchise debuts, F9 will re-introduce multiple characters from previous movies in the franchise.
Vin Diesel has been hyping up the upcoming release of Fast & Furious 9 with an image of him and The Rock. The car-centric franchise that started in 2001 is now gearing up to release the ninth film in the main The Fast Saga narrative. Diesel’s Dom reunites with his old crew for a new mission in F9. During it, he’s pitted against his estranged brother, Jakob (John Cena). Backed up by Cipher (Charlize Theron), the villain appears to be hell-bent on going after Dom, and while the reason why is still unclear, it may very well be personal. Given this, it seems Dom will need all the help he can get in F9. This had led many to wonder if he’ll reconnect with old allies such as Luke Hobbs, played by Johnson. It’s no secret Johnson and Diesel have had their differences, resulting in a private feud.
Tyrese Gibson, who had been vocal about Johnson’s involvement in The Fast Saga, announced that his feud with the actor is over, back in December 2020. It all started when the spin-off Hobbs and Shaw was announced, and Gibson accused the Rock of attempting to take over the franchise. It didn’t help the main cast was displeased with how Shaw was handled in The Fate of the Furious. Despite all this drama, between Gibson’s comments and Diesel’s social media post, it’s possible they’ve both patched things up with Johnson.
It’s hard to know if this means Johnson will appear in Fast & Furious 9. For starters, the movie has long-finished production, and this feud may have not been over when they wrapped up filming. The only reason it hasn’t come out yet is because of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s also worth noting Diesel may have simply chosen a photo of his character at random, with Hobbs’ appearance a mere coincidence. Either way, the actor’s post should only increase the excitement for the upcoming film and conclusion of The Fast Saga.
Read F9’s synopsis, it says, “Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob.”
Directed by Justin Lin, F9 stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Sung Kang, with Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron, and Cardi B. The film arrives in theaters on June 25, 2021.
