Fast and Furious has been with us for almost two decades now. It’s been a long time since the first movie was released, back in 2001 and people have absolutely loved every single one of them. However, things went a little south when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirmed back in January that he is leaving the cast. People were worried about the franchise’s future. But, worry not people as Vin Diesel has found a solution. He has added to the cast another actor, just as grand and powerful as The Rock.
Yes, we are talking about John Cena. Diesel said:
As you know, I’m always thinking fast, and thinking about the responsibility of making something iconic and deserving of your loyalty. I know this sounds crazy, but every blue moon I feel like Pablo [Paul Walker] up there sends me someone. Another soldier in the fight for truth. Today, someone came by Toretto Gym that speaks to what Pablo would have brought me.
Fast and Furious 9 is set to be released on May 22, 2020, so the fandom will have to wait for one more year. Considering the long timeline that the movies have had, I am pretty sure it will be worth the wait.
Of course, people did not hesitate to make a joke or two about John Cena joining the cast, and someone even said that there is absolutely no way we can know for sure that Cena wasn’t a part of the last 8 movies. Very amusing, indeed.
However, we still don’t know if John Cena will be one of the good guys or he will join the bad team, but one thing’s for sure, it is going to be EPIC.
