Apparently even Fast X , the tenth chapter of the saga with a high content of adrenaline and speed from May 18 in cinemas, has a scene after the credits, in line with all the major contemporary blockbusters.
It was The Wrap that revealed it exclusively, adding that the protagonist of the scene in question is Dwayne Johnson , who has returned to play agent Luke Hobbs .

A decidedly unexpected news, given that The Rock has always proved adamant in stating that he would never return to the main saga, due to some misunderstandings with the protagonist Vin Diesel . In 2021 Johnson had stated :
Last June, when Vin and I spoke (not via social media) I told him directly – and privately – that I was not returning to the franchise. I was firm but cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to succeed, but that there was no chance of me returning.
Apparently things have changed and now Luke Hobbs is back in the family!
The plot of Fast X
Fast X, the tenth film in the Fast & Furious saga, kicks off the final chapters of one of the most legendary and popular cinematic franchises, now in its third decade and still supported by the same cast and characters from its inception.
Over the course of many challenges and against impossible obstacles, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outwitted, braved and outwitted every enemy they encountered in their path. Now they are faced with the deadliest adversary they have ever faced: a terrible threat emerging from the shadows of the past, fueled by vengeance, determined to break up the family and destroy everything and everyone loved forever.
In 2011’s Fast Five, Dom and his team took down notorious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes and destroyed his empire on a bridge in Rio De Janeiro. What they didn’t know is that Reyes’ son Dante (Aquaman’s Jason Momoa) witnessed all of this and has spent the last 12 years hatching a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price.
Dante’s plot will push Dom’s family from Los Angeles to the catacombs of Rome, from Brazil to London and from Portugal to Antarctica. New alliances will form and old enemies will return. But everything changes when Dom discovers that his 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo Perry, Black-ish) is the ultimate target of Dante’s revenge.
Alongside Vin Diesel we find the historic cast, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena and Scott Eastwood, with Oscar winner Helen Mirren and Oscar winner Charlize Theron .
With them Brie Larson in the role of Tess, a dishonest representative of the Agency; Alan Ritchson ( Reacher ) as Aimes, the new head of the Agency who doesn’t hold as much sympathy for Dom’s team as his predecessor, Mr. Nobody; Daniela Melchior ( Suicide Squad ) as a Brazilian street racer with a strong connection to Dom’s past; and Academy Award winner Rita Moreno as Abuelita Toretto, Dom and Mia’s grandmother.
