The Fast and Furious Universe has been around for the past two decades and is one of the most exciting series. The franchise has got bigger and better with the addition of each movie. The first installment came out in the early 2000s with Vin Diesel in the lead. The actor is associated with the action-packed franchise and has become the heart of the series.
The franchise has expanded into massive action films with physics-defying automobile stunts. Every time the Fast Family encounters a new, potent threat in a movie, Dominic Toretto inevitably engages to save his loved ones. In the new addition Fast X, the villain Dante Reyes, played by Jason Momoa, who relishes pain seems like a terrifying antagonist. Momoa recently gave some insights about his planned fight with Diesel in the 11th installment of the franchise.

Jason Momoa’s and Vin Diesel’s big fight in the Fast X sequel
Jason Momoa entered the Fast and Furious franchise as Dante Reyes, the cold-blooded baddie. Momoa’s character is seeking revenge for his father, Hernan Reyes’s death in Fast Five. The Aquaman actor is considered the most terrifying villain of the franchise.
Over the years, the franchise has featured some extremely terrible antagonists like Cypher, who has shown to be cunning and vicious in their attacks on Dominic Toretto’s loved ones. But the 43-year-old actor’s character is completely different.
The new movie Fast X doesn’t feature any fight scene between Reyes and Toretto, making fans curious about a final face-off in the sequel. Speaking about this, Momoa shared some insights to Screen Rant.
The Braven actor said,
“We had a big fight scene planned for me and [Dom], and we’ve seen that we’ve done that. They don’t need to get into the showdown of fighting each other. I think it’s way more interesting.”
The actor spoke about his character and how he is always a step ahead of Toretto and relishes pain.
The Dune star explained how Reyes got the upper hand. He said,
“He constantly has the upper hand on Dom. And it’s not that we don’t want to see them fight because that showdown’s going to come and that’ll be violent, especially with someone who just adores pain and is probably already dead inside. It’s scary when someone’s getting off on that pain.”
With a sequel planned for Fast X, the big showdown between these characters isn’t happening till 2025, when the sequel is anticipated to release.

Jason Momoa’s Dante Reyes will be the most dangerous villain of the franchise
Dante Reyes, played by Jason Momoa, is going to be the most cold-blooded villain in the Fast and Furious franchise. His character is established as the most deadly foe Dominic Toretto and the Fast Family have ever encountered.
The Fast X film sees Dom and his family as they face off against the new villain. The new movie also stars Brie Larson as an agent who joins Dom.
Reyes not only targets the Fast Family but also partially succeeds in eliminating it, making it personal for Dom. The fight between Dante Reyes and Dominic Toretto will be the largest and most intense fight to date.
Fans might get to see this highly anticipated fight in the Fast X sequel. Vin Diesel during the Cinema Con announced the upcoming 11th installment of the franchise, which is slated to release in 2025.
Fast X is available in theatres worldwide.
