The Fast and Furious franchise has given us action-packed bombastic films as well as plenty of well-known feuds. After Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel got involved in an eyebrow-raising quarrel for years, the release of Fast X revealed another one- this time between Vin Diesel and Jason Momoa.
Rumors began swirling that Diesel was upset with Jason Momoa for stealing all the spotlight in the franchise he built from the ground up. Also, there was speculation that the Aquaman star was undermining his film. However, now the two stars have clarified what’s actually going on.
Vin Diesel And Jason Momoa Hint About Their Working Relationship
Jason Momoa starred as Dante Reyes, the son of Hernan Reyes, who appeared in Fast Five. He wanted revenge against Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for stealing from his family. The film is minting money at the box office, but the reception towards the film hasn’t been as stellar as one would have liked to expect.
As such, Radar Online reported that there was discontent in the camp, especially from Diesel towards Momoa. The site said:
“Vin is embarrassed Jason is being branded the only bright spot in the film and stealing his thunder in the franchise he built himself”.
However, in a recent Instagram post, Diesel seemed to subtly put those rumors to rest. He said that he only has love for his Fast family as the team heads into Fast X: Part 2. Highlighting Momoa, he said:
“Jason wanted to try something totally unique and special and ended up creating a scene-stealing character that the world won’t forget.”
Here’s the post:
Jason Momoa too commented that it’s “all aloha,” and thanked Diesel for “taking a chance with me boss man.” This isn’t the only feud that has been resolved/ debunked. Finally, the biggest one that has plagued the Fast and Furious franchise for years- between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson- has also been resolved.
Dwayne Johnson And Vin Diesel Forget The Past And Start Anew
Dwayne Johnson’s public feud with Vin Diesel is well-known. However, no one knows what exactly went down behind the scenes for The Rock to say that he wasn’t ever coming back. But as they say- never say never. Now, the Black Adam star is back in the franchise after a small cameo in Fast X and has seemingly put the past behind him.
“Last summer Vin Diesel and I put all the past behind us. We’ll lead with brotherhood and resolve – and always take care of the franchise, characters & fans that we love. I’ve built my career on an ‘audience first’ mentality and that will always serve as my north star.”
A new standalone film for The Rock’s Luke Hobbs has been announced and as per Variety, it will connect Fast X and Fast X: Part 2. As such, it looks like all is finally well in the Fast and Furious world.
Fast X is now in theaters.
