Theron will reprise her villain role of Cipher after appearing in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” and last year’s “F9.” The “Bombshell” star will also lead the 11th and final “Fast” film, which is currently in the works.
The first image shows Theron in character as she poses with her arms crossed alongside two co-stars who seem to be indisposed. The second picture is of Theron looking down between takes.
“Fast and Furious” franchise mainstays Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Nathalie Emmanuel are returning for “Fast X,” as well as Cardi B after her “F9” cameo.
“Yeah yeah yeah… you see this angel over my shoulder cracking me up, you say to yourself ‘That’s Captain Marvel.’ Clearly there is love and laughter in this image,” Diesel wrote in an Instagram caption for a snapshot with him and Larson. “What you don’t see however, is the character you will be introduced to in ‘Fast 10.’ You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology. Beyond her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this profound soul who will add something you might not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the FAMILY Brie.”
Larson previously pitched herself to star in a “Fast” film, telling Uproxx that it was her “dream” to “tap into a true love” franchise like “Fast and Furious.”
Justin Lin will return to direct both “Fast X” and the 11th and final film after helming almost half of the franchise. “Fast X” kicks off the two-part finale for the 20-plus year old franchise. Production for “Fast X” began April 20, with Diesel posting “Day 1” on social media to commemorate the start of the end.
