With the recent alleged departure of Gal Gadot from her role as Wonder Woman in the DCU, she may return to her furious roots in FastX. Although people have faint memories, the actress portrayed the role of Gisele in Fast Five (2011) before being killed off in Fast & Furious 6 (2013).
With the return of many dead characters like Han, Letty, and now Gisele, the fans cannot help but troll the movie as the Fast & Furious franchise seems to run out of sensible scripts.
Gal Gadot Returns To Her Fast & Furious Roots
The trend of bringing back supposed dead characters started when the post-credit scene of Fast Five featured a photograph of Michelle Rodriguez’s character of Letty. Even though presumed dead, she was indeed alive but her memory was rewired until she finds Dominic Toretto again in Fast & Furious 6.
Ironically, the character of Gisele Yashar, portrayed by Gal Gadot, found herself sacrificing to save Han from death during the action-filled finale of Fast & Furious 6. With the revival of the character of Han (not an actual revival), it seems that Gisele will shortly introduce herself once again when FastX releases.
With having allegedly run out of creative ideas, fans feel that the Fast & Furious franchise has been milked dry. Upon hearing the news of Gal Gadot’s return, the fans took to Twitter to troll the franchise and how unoriginal the idea was.

The family-heavy morals have been featured in the franchise multiple times as the movies have become meme material for the world to see. The latest installment of the franchise F9 saw Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto go up against his long-lost brother John Cena’s Jakob Toretto. The antagonist of the upcoming FastX movie is reportedly Jason Momoa and he has got some anger issues to deal with in the movie.
Jason Momoa Is The Big Baddie In FastX
Although much of the development has been kept under wraps, we do know that Jason Momoa is set to star as the antagonist of the movie. While starring as Aquaman in DC’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, 2023 is surely going to be a big year for the Game of Thrones actor.
While talking about it in an interview, Jason Momoa revealed that his version of the antagonist is going to be a serious one. Stating that the villainous character has some “daddy issues”, Momoa shared his excitement to finally play the bad guy after portraying protagonists for so long.
“I get to be the bad guy finally. I’ve been the good guy for a while. He’s very sadistic and androgynous and he’s a bit of a peacock… He’s got a lot of issues, this guy. He’s definitely got some daddy issues.”
With Gal Gadot set to reprise her role, the Fast family feels bigger with the addition of newer and revived characters with respect to its humble beginnings. If things go as planned, FastX is slated for a release date of 19th May 2023 in theaters across the U.S.
