Fast X's Jason Momoa Already Has A 'Solid' Idea For The Next Movies

Contains spoilers for "Fast X"

Anyone even vaguely familiar with the "Fast & Furious" franchise is well aware that most of the movies end with a family dinner in the backyard of the Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) household. And while the new film once again includes that family ritual, the ending of "Fast X" opts instead to go the cliffhanger route involving the film's main villain, Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa).

That, of course, means that Dante doesn't meet his demise in "Fast X" and will almost definitely be back for the 11th movie in the "Fast & Furious" saga, and maybe even the 12th. After all, Dante has been waiting 10 years to settle the score with Dominic and his crew to avenge the death of his father — drug kingpin Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) — and the ending of "Fast X" promises there are more fireworks to come.

As such, Momoa has ideas for the future of Dante in the upcoming "Fast & Furious" films that he's already shared with director Louis Leterrier. "I have a really solid idea that I pitched to Louis and I'm hoping it comes true," Momoa told Fandango. "I can't say anything about it, but I think if it was done this way I think it's going to make him even more evil."

Momoa seems to want to delve more into Dante's life with his father

"Fast X" includes a flashback to the climactic vault chase scene in the 2011 blockbuster "Fast Five," which ends with the death of Hernan Reyes. So, to give context to the inclusion of the flashback scene in the new "Fast & Furious" film, shots of a younger-looking Jason Momoa as Dante Reyes are inserted in and around the action.

Since the elder Reyes' death is a devastating event for Dante in "Fast X," it appears that Momoa is hinting in his Fandango interview at a couple possibilities regarding his ideas for the next films: He could either want to take a deeper look into Dante and his father's bond or perhaps reveal another event in their lives that further drives his motivation to exact revenge on Dominic Toretto and his crew.

"I'll say this. We didn't get to see what he was like with his father [in 'Fast X'], but if [we] got to see him really care about something and you can see where his heart is, and then we fall for that and the audience gets to feel that, then we take it away and then we get to see what he really is gonna do," Momoa explained to Fandango.

No matter the case, the story dynamic is sure to change with the next film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, given the events of the mid-credits scene in "Fast X," where Dwayne Johnson makes an appearance. 

"Fast X" is now playing in theaters.
