As he celebrated the premiere of “Avengers: Endgame,” Vin Diesel teased fans with the newest addition to the “Fast and Furious” family, professional wrestler John Cena.
The 51-year-old star, who played Dominic Toretto in six of the last eight films, took to Instagram to share the big news while invoking the memory of the franchise’s late star, Paul Walker.
“As you know I’m always thinking fast and I think about the responsibility of making something iconic and deserving of your loyalty,” Diesel says in the video. “I know this sounds crazy but every blue moon I feel like Pablo up there sends me someone, another soldier for the fight for truth and today someone came by the Toretto gym that speaks to what Pablo would have brought.”
With that, Diesel panned the camera to his left to reveal Cena standing beside him dressed in a blue suit. The 42-year-old wrestler waved to the camera without saying a word.
‘Fast & Furious 9’ is scheduled to be released in 2020.
