It looks like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson couldn't keep his hands away from being behind the wheel for too long.
A little over half a decade after The Rock and Vin Diesel had a very public feud and falling out, which ultimately led to The Rock leaving the Fast and Furious franchise, The Great One has come back (pun intended).
This exciting bit of news has sent ripples of anticipation through the global community of speed-loving moviegoers who are eager to see the charismatic actor back on the road again.
According to The Wrap, the 51-year-old actor is one of the surprises that Universal Pictures has in store for fans who go and watch Fast X on May 19. The outlet claims that Johnson appears in a post-credits scene of the film.
Very few personalities are as charismatic and magnetic as The Rock. For this reason, many fans applauded the decision to bring him over to the Fast and Furious franchise, starting with Fast Five. Unfortunately, The Rock had to leave the franchise after the eighth installment, leaving fans pining for his on-screen chemistry with fellow actors despite the reported rift between them that went on behind the scenes while filming.
The news of The Rock's return has sparked joy and excitement among the fan base, promising that Fast X is worth the long wait (and the expensive budget).
The announcement of Johnson's return has fueled speculation and intrigue about the story of Fast X. In particular, fans are eager to see how the film will reintegrate his character back into the high-stakes world filled with fast cars and increasingly brazen public acts of wanton mayhem.
Most had already assumed that Jason Momoa was hired specifically to replace The Rock, but it appears both will likely be sharing the big screen sooner rather than later.
It's no wonder then that the buzz surrounding Fast X is at an all-time high.
It's unclear if Johnson and the series' long-time star, Vin Diesel, have made up already although Diesel didn't exactly shy away from public displays of brotherly affection for The Rock last year.
Some speculate that Johnson's "return" in Fast X sets up the long-gestating Hobbs & Shaw sequel starring him and Jason Statham.
Speaking of Fast and Furious, the early reactions to Fast X are in and fans are absolutely loving it. Universal is also a big fan of it as well, as it has already asked Vin Diesel to turn the duology finale into a trilogy.
