Jason Momoa is the latest movie star to join the Fast and Furious franchise. The Fast and Furious movies have a large roster of actors who either become regulars in the series or just appear in one movie. Fans of the franchise can look forward to the return of a fan-favorite villain in Fast and Furious 10, according to Momoa himself.

It was announced a few months ago that Momoa would be playing the villain in the next entry within this franchise. F9 introduced John Cena as a new villain and now Momoa will be joining the ever-growing roster of Fast and Furious villains. The Aquaman actor seems like a perfect fit in this franchise and it will be interesting to see him in a more villainous role.
Momoa is joining a cast that includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and Jordana Brewster. It’s unclear if all of them are coming back, but it’s most likely that they will since Fast and Furious 10 is being marketed as the finale. It was also recently announced that The Suicide Squad’s Daniela Melchior is joining the cast in an undisclosed role.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of Michael Bay’s Ambulance, Momoa confirmed that Charlize Theron is returning for Fast and Furious 10. Theron was introduced as Cipher in The Fate of the Furious and came back once more in F9. Momoa told ET that he is excited to work with Theron, who will once again be plotting revenge against Diesel and the rest of the family.
“I get to shoot with some really cool people that I have never — I get to work with Charlize [Theron] first up, which I’m really excited about,” Momoa shared. “She’s amazing.”
Momoa also said that he is excited to start shooting the movie and to work with other members of the cast, including Diesel.
“Then I get to go to some cool places,” he continued. “Obviously work with the whole cast — most of the cast. I’m sure that’s why they hired me. But yeah, I’m excited I’m working with Vin. I’m excited I’m working with Charlize.”
