Fast X star Vin Diesel has taken to social media (via ActioNewz.com) to share a new look at Jason Momoa's unnamed villain. The Aquaman actor can be seen in costume as Dante, a character who looks like a new type of foe for Dominic Toretto's crew.
"Blessed to be a part of a Saga that encourages such great work from the many amazing artists that have made this the world’s Saga!" the Fast and Furious mainstay wrote in the caption. "A still from set after an intense, week-long scene with my brother."
Momoa has previously teased his role in Fast X, saying that while "people always think I’m just this dude who plays [macho characters]," he's now looking to do something different. It's no great surprise then that he's described Dante as "eccentric" and "a peacock at the highest level."
Diesel also dropped a new look at Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, hyping up the impending trailer launch.
That's confirmed to drop a couple of days before the Super Bowl next month, so fingers crossed we get to see Momoa in action there.
The movie's returning stars include Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Charlize Theron, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, and Scott Eastwood. It was also recently confirmed that Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot will return as Gisele Yashar. despite the character's death in Fast & Furious 6.
As for franchise newcomers, we can expect to see Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Daniela Melchoir (The Suicide Squad), and Alan Ritchson (Titans).
In terms of story details, very little has been revealed about Fast X. However, all you probably need to know is that there will be a lot of cars, a lot of crazy stunts, and probably quite a few explosions too. Each instalment ups the ante and attempts to outdo its predecessor, so we're sure that will be the case here as well with The Incredible Hulk's Louis Leterrier in charge.
Fast & Furious 10, a.k.a. Fast X, is set to race into theaters on May 19.
