“Family” Reunion: Dwayne Johnson Makes a Cameo in Fast X Despite Feud with Vin Diesel


In a stunning turn of events, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as “The Rock,” has made a surprising cameo appearance in the highly-anticipated film Fast X, despite his highly publicized feud with co-star Vin Diesel.

This unexpected reunion comes after years of tension between the two action stars, with Johnson previously declaring there was “no chance” he would return to the main Fast & Furious franchise. However, The Wrap broke the news, revealing that Johnson’s character, Hobbs, reappears in one of the film’s post-credits sequences.

The feud between Johnson and Diesel dates back to at least 2016 when Johnson took to Instagram during the final week of filming The Fate of the Furious, criticizing his anonymous co-stars for their unprofessional behavior.

Many believed his comments were aimed at Diesel. The tension became evident when audiences noticed that Johnson and Diesel did not share screen time in the subsequent film. In a 2018 interview with Rolling Stone, Johnson confirmed the rumors, stating that they were not in any scenes together.

Johnson shed light on the issue, saying, “Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer. What I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating. It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity.

Whether we work together again or not.” Despite their differences, Johnson went on to star in the Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw but did not appear in the franchise’s ninth installment, F9.

In 2021, before filming Fast X (then believed to be the series finale), Diesel attempted to reconcile with Johnson through social media. He expressed his desire for Johnson to return, emphasizing the importance of his role in the franchise.

However, Johnson dismissed Diesel’s comments, labeling them as manipulative. He clarified in an interview with CNN that he had already informed Diesel privately that he would not be returning to the franchise. Johnson hoped to conclude his journey with the Fast & Furious series on a positive note, expressing gratitude and grace.

Despite Johnson’s strong statement that there was “no chance” of his character’s return, his cameo in the post-credits scene has sparked speculation about a potentially larger role in the series’ 11th and final film.

It remains unclear whether the feud between Johnson and Diesel has been resolved, as neither actor has commented on the matter. Nevertheless, fans of the franchise are undoubtedly excited by the unexpected reunion and are eagerly awaiting the release of Fast X.

The inclusion of Dwayne Johnson in Fast X demonstrates the unpredictable nature of Hollywood relationships and the potential for reconciliation, even in the midst of high-profile feuds.

While fans can only speculate about the future of Johnson’s involvement in the Fast & Furious franchise, the cameo appearance has reignited hope for a reunion between the two stars and the possibility of a remarkable finale to an already thrilling series.
