As the actor with the longest connection to the Fast and Furious franchise, it stands to reason that Vin Diesel will once again return to the Fast fold to reprise his role as Dominic Toretto.
Diesel briefly departed the series after the release of the first film to focus on other projects, but he subsequently returned for a cameo in Tokyo Drift before sharing hero duties with the late Paul Walker in 2009’s Fast and Furious. Now he stands as the leader of the crew, and it makes sense for him to return as long as the character is still around.
That said, some big changes are on the horizon for Dom as we move into the ninth installment in the franchise. Much of Fate of the Furious’ story was predicated on Dom’s newfound fatherhood, and it stands to reason that we will see him continue adjusting to that life-changing event as he learns how to take care of Brian and provide for the rest of his adopted family.
