Dwayne Johnson and Jason Momoa have both done various roles in the Hollywood industry that have led to their rise in fame. Johnson recently distanced himself from his role as Black Adam in the DC Universe seeing that the franchise is yet to find the perfect way could bring his character back. The actor is currently going through a patch where his career as a superhero is still not sure to be continuing.
The actor has been part of the biggest franchises and worked alongside many of his friends and colleagues. He has been the lead character in various successful movies. From San Andreas to Jumanji: The Next Level, the actor has been displaying his talent ever since he decided to step away from wrestling and start acting. However, now it may seem that the actor will be bidding farewell to a big franchise.

Dwayne Johnson To Not Return In Fast X And Instead Would Be Replaced By Jason Momoa
Dwayne Johnson had been a part of the Fast and the Furious franchise for a while now and even got his own spin-off movie alongside Jason Statham with Hobbs and Shaw. He was expected to make a return to the upcoming movie, however, that would not be the case. Due to his feud with Vin Diesel, he has made it very clear that the franchise will not be seeing Johnson again.
The actor who is said to be taking up the now-open spot is none other than Jason Momoa. The actor was also a part of the DCU and was a member of the Justice League. Playing Aquaman and already getting ready for its sequel’s release, it would look to be that Momoa will now be replacing Johnson in the Fast and the Furious franchise.

Jason Momoa Will Go From Villain To Family
Jason Momoa is set to play the villain in the upcoming Fast X. He will now be taking up the spot that Dwayne Johnson left behind. Much like how Paul Walker’s unfortunate absence from the series was filled by Jason Stathem’s Deckard Shaw. Johnson and Diesel had a falling out after the shooting of Fate of the Furious and that led to the actor also not appearing in the ninth installment of the franchise.
“Vin isn’t looking in the rearview mirror on this issue, he’s thinking about the future and right now, the future doesn’t include a reconciliation with Dwayne,” an insider had stated. “In fact, Vin is intent on topping the box office of all the movies that included Dwayne with Fast X, and the studio is supporting him. Nobody is telling Vin to stuff his pride and make nice with Dwayne. Vin’s vision for these movies is being supported in full, end of story.”
It was a decision made keeping the franchise and its success in mind rather than any personal issue posing as an obstacle to its rise. Momoa will be part of the team officially after the events that will take place in the upcoming movie.
Fast X will be available to watch in theatres from 19th May 2023.
