Is Brian Returning In Fast & Furious 10?

Fast X can’t go to space because F9 did that already, but the last mainline Fast and the Furious movie has plenty of other options like dinosaurs, time travel, and the return of Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner.

For over two decades, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have shown there’s nothing Fast and the Furious can’t do. The end result has always been mostly harmless, physics-defying fun, but Fast X is at a pivotal crossroads when it comes to the possibility of Brian’s return in the franchise finale.

Paul Walker’s death in 2013 changed the Fast and the Furious franchise forever, leading to Brian’s retirement in 2015’s Furious 7. Since then, the normally heavy-handed action franchise has always taken the high road for its endearing references to Brian in The Fate of the Furious and F9.

Purely technically speaking, there’s no reason why Brian can’t theoretically return to Fast X. However, the real question Fast and the Furious needs to thoroughly consider is if Brian should return.

Furious 7 finished Paul Walker’s scenes by using his brothers’ stand-in performances and replacing their faces with CGI versions of Walker’s face during post-production. Brian’s return in 2023 would be similar, with the benefit of much better technology.

Ideally, his hypothetical return wouldn’t be too intertwined with Fast X’s plot. Something as simple as a Fast X movie ending with Brian enjoying one of Dom’s BBQ parties would be enough to turn on the waterworks.

Brian wouldn’t even need to show his face for this concept to work. Ultimately, the idea of the character appearing in the movie wouldn’t need him to be on-screen for long, and a surprise cameo would leave the audience emotional with little said or done.

An ending with Dom reappearing o greet the team would be a natural continuation of the blue car at the end of F9, and it would also be the ultimate homage to the iconic franchise’s long-running theme of family.

Why Fast X Shouldn’t Bring Back Brian

Clearly, Brian’s return could absolutely be great. The concern is whether the Fast X story would show the necessary restraint to make the beloved character’s return work in a sensitive way.

In this vein, perhaps Fast X should get the benefit of the doubt, based on how Fast and the Furious has handled Brian in and after Furious 7. Unfortunately, The Fast Saga has a long track record of making puzzling decisions that seemingly defy common sense.

F9 made the inexplicable decision to spoil Han’s return in its marketing, and Fast and the Furious has already wasted its perfect ending twice. Fast and the Furious may have jumped the shark (and some skyscrapers), but Brian’s perfect ending is still intact from Furious 7.

ends up being, Brian’s last ride already happened. Bringing Brian back now would be tacky, no matter how much emotional appeal his return would inevitably produce for the Fast and the Furious series. If Brian must come back, it can’t be more than the briefest of cameos.
