Dwayne Johnson made a surprise return to the Fast & Furious franchise with an end credit cameo in Fast X, and that won’t be the last we see of him! The Rock confirmed he’ll be back as Luke Hobbs in the untitled Fast & Furious film that puts his character front and center.

Johnson’s future in this action franchise is looking bright after the success of Fast X, and he could appear in several new projects. In addition to leading his own movie, written by Chris Morgan, the door is open for him to return as Hobbs in the next installment of the mothership franchise.

Johnson teased his return on social media and revealed he agreed to come back after ending his feud with the Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel.

“Last summer, Vin Diesel and I put all the past behind us. We’ll lead with brotherhood and resolve – and always take care of the franchise, characters & FANS that we love. I’ve built my career on an “audience first” mentality and that will always serve as my North Star,” he wrote on Instagram.

Johnson previously played Luke Hobbs in another spin-off—Hobbs & Shaw—but his newly announced Hobbs film will be a standalone project, instead of serving as its sequel.
