Fast 10 Fan Poster Makes Fun of New Title With X-Men Crossover
A new fan poster for the hilariously named Fast X makes the Fast & Furious film a crossover with the similarly titled X-Men franchise. The upcoming film will be directed by Fast & Furious mainstay Justin Lin and will see the return of its ensemble cast, including Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, and Charlize Theron. Fast & Furious 10 is set for release on May 19, 2023, with an eleventh installment already in the works for 2024.

Fast X will presumably see Diesel’s Dom Toretto come out of retirement once again to face off against a new villain, played by DCEU star Jason Momoa. Along with Momoa, Daniela Melchior and Oscar winner Brie Larson have also joined Fast & Furious 10. The film is expected to carry on the franchise’s tradition of impressive set pieces and larger-than-life stuntwork, punctuated by stylish editing and elaborate cinematography. At the same time, it will start to bring Fast & Furious to a close; the 11th film is slated to be the main franchise’s grand finale.

Digital artist diamonddead recently shared a poster that pokes fun at the newly revealed Fast X title, implying that it will be a crossover with the X-Men films. The poster sees Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine sitting in a racing car that’s associated with the Fast films. The hypothetical tagline “Two families are coming together” is a cheeky reference to the Fast & Furious films’ tendency for the characters to call each other family, to the point where it becomes a joke. Check out the poster below:

With a franchise that has gone as long as Fast & Furious has, there are obviously no bad ideas, and indeed, this is a series that has courted some rather ridiculous concepts. For example, last year’s F9 took a couple characters to space. However, given how Fast & Furious and X-Men are owned by different companies, the joke is sadly nothing more than a joke and is not meant to be taken seriously by fans of either franchise. Jackman has also retired from Wolverine after the success of 2017’s Logan to focus on other projects, further separating the idea from any passing reality. Still, it is a very amusing concept, and it has the added bonus of making fun at the much-maligned Fast X title.
Though Fast X will be as fun and ridiculous as fans have come to expect, it seems unlikely that it will suddenly become a superhero film. In an industry that’s currently trying to make everything a shared universe, perhaps it’s for the best that some franchises stay in their lanes, both figuratively and literally. Of course, stranger things have happened with this high-octane series, and some stars have even proposed a crossover with another Hollywood franchise, Jurassic World. In the end, though, Fast X will likely be more of what fans want out of the franchise, and they won’t have to worry about complicated lore or comic book origins.
