In what is coming as a fairly surprising twist for the Fast & Furious franchise, star actress Gal Gadot is reportedly returning for the upcoming tenth installment, Fast X. She will be reuniting with the likes of Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Tyrese Gibson as they face off against Gadot’s former DC co-star in Jason Momoa
Of course, the major surprise comes from the fact that her character of Gisele Yashar was killed off during Fast & Furious 6. Granted, this hasn’t stopped Sung Kang from returning in Fast 9, the most recent film, following his character of Han Lue being killed previously.
Continuity aside, it would make sense to see Gal Gadot return to this major franchise at this point in her career. Within the past month, her marquee role of Wonder Woman was put into question following the cancellation of the third film in the franchise. It has recently been reported that the new team of DC Studios have nixed the pitched Wonder Woman 3 by filmmaker Patty Jenkins. This, plus the report that Gadot’s cameo in The Flash was cut could lead to the idea that the actress will be another casualty of the corporate overturn occurring.
Fast X is being directed by Louis Leterrier and Gadot will star the likes of Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Brie Larson, Jason Mamoa, and Charlize Theron among others in the all-star ensemble. The film is scheduled to release exclusively in theaters on May 19, 2023.
