    John Cena Joins Cast of Fast & Furious 9

    Fast & Furious 9 hits theaters this summer, and the first trailer arrives later this week. Continuing the series' trend of using unconventional titles, the movie is simply called F9, and ahead of the trailer, new character posters have been released.

    The posters reveal all the new movie's main cast members, standing against a variety of colorful smokey backgrounds. There's Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges as Tej Parker, and Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, plus John Cena, who will be making his debut in the Fast franchise.

    The American professional wrestler and actor, John Cena will be featuring in Universal Pictures’ latest installment to The Fast and the Furious franchise; The Fast Saga, or simply F9.

    Cena’s character was revealed in the new posters for Fast & Furious 9, released by Universal together with the returning cast members, and Justin Lin returning to directing in the franchise, after helming Fast & Furious parts 3 through 6.

    The trailer will be revealed as part of a concert titled The Road to F9, which is taking place in Miami. The concert begins at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET on Friday, and you can livestream the event on the Fast Saga YouTube page. The show will feature performances from Cardi B--who is rumored to be in the movie--Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth, Ozuna, and of course, Ludacriss.

    F9 is directed by Justin Lin, who has helmed four of the previous films in the series. The cast also includes Guardians of the Galaxy's Michael Rooker, plus Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, who will be reprising their roles from The Fate of the Furious as cyberterrorist Cipher and Magdalene Shaw--Deckard Shaw's mother--respectively.

    Over the course of nineteen years, Fast & Furious has evolved from a film series about illegal street car racing to a franchise about what’re essentially superheroes who save the world from mercenaries and cyber-terrorists.

    The property’s ensemble has only grown along with its scale, adding Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, Luke Evans, and Jason Statham to its universe while also bidding farewell to the late Paul Walker; who tragically died mid-way through production on Furious Seven.

    The movie is also expected to do better by its women in general after Michelle Rodriguez publicly called out the Fast & Furious movie series for letting their female characters down back in 2017.

    Fast & Furious movies will supposedly call it quits after Fast & Furious 10 which is tentatively scheduled for 2021.
