Confirmed: Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs Returns in Fast X Post-Credits Scene

It’s official: Dwayne Johnson‘s Luke Hobbs will make his return in Fast X. According to The Wrap, Johnson’s Hobbs will appear in the post-credits sequence of Fast X.

Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel reportedly had tensions and conflicts during the production of “The Fate of the Furious” due to creative differences and personal clashes on set. In 2016, Johnson took to social media (Instagram) to express his frustration with some of his male co-stars, referring to them as “candy asses.” But he didn’t mention Diesel. In 2019, Dwayne Johnson starred in “Hobbs & Shaw,” a spin-off film from the Fast & Furious franchise, alongside Jason Statham. Directed by David Leitch.

In 2021, Vin Diesel publicly expressed a request for Dwayne Johnson to return for “Fast X” in an Instagram post, referring to him as “Uncle Dwayne” to his children and stating that the world awaits the finale. However, Johnson denied making a comeback in an interview, indicating that he would not be returning to the franchise. Now it is clear that Dwayne Johnson will make his return as Luke Hobbs in Fast & Furious 11, along with the ensemble cast.

Fast X is directed by Louis Leterrier from a screenplay by Dan Mazeau and Justin Lin and a story by Mazeau, Lin, and Zach Dean. The film stars Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto alongside an ensemble supporting cast including Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jason Momoa, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, John Cena, Jason Statham, Sung Kang, Alan Ritchson, Daniela Melchior, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron, Brie Larson, and Rita Moreno.

According to the film’s plot: Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: A terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who’s fueled by blood revenge, and who is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything—and everyone—that Dom loves, forever.

In 2011’s Fast Five, Dom and his crew took out nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes and decapitated his empire on a bridge in Rio De Janeiro. What they didn’t know was that Reyes’ son, Dante (Aquaman’s Jason Momoa), witnessed it all and has spent the last 12 years masterminding a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price.

Dante’s plot will scatter Dom’s family from Los Angeles to the catacombs of Rome, from Brazil to London and from Portugal to Antarctica. New allies will be forged and old enemies will resurface. But everything changes when Dom discovers that his own 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo Perry, Black-ish) is the ultimate target of Dante’s vengeance.

Fast X will hit theaters on May 19, 2023, by Universal Pictures.
