Fast & Furious 10 Theory: Brie Larson Plays Brian O’Connor’s Sister

Fast & Furious 10 Theory: Brie Larson Plays Brian O’Connor’s Sister
Fast & Furious 10 could continue the legacy of Paul Walker’s character if Brie Larson is playing Brian O’Connor’s sister. The Fast & Furious franchise lost a big piece of its heart in 2013 when Paul Walker passed away. After reworking the end of Furious 7 to allow Brian O’Connor to drive off into the sunset, it seemed that his story was over.

However, the announcement that Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 are the end of the franchise has reignited speculation that Brian will play a role in the finale somehow. Instead of bringing Paul Walker back using CGI, though, the movies could be poised to introduce Brian O’Connor’s sister.

Plot details for Fast & Furious 10, officially titled Fast X, are not yet known, but the sequel is bringing back most of the usual cast members. Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto will seemingly return to action after his multiple attempts to retire.

While Dom has failed to live a quiet life for too long, that is not true for Brian O’Connor according to the films. The movies that followed Furious 7 left Brian out of their stories by explaining that he was home with the family.

The same explanation was used even as his wife, Mia Toretto, returned for F9 and raised even more questions about why Brian O’Connor isn’t around. However, the franchise has been hesitant to move past the O’Connor family or even reveal that Brian died off-screen.

This has left the franchise in a position to potentially bring Brian O’Connor back in Fast X. There have been plenty of hints that audiences have not seen the last of Paul Walker’s character, but there might already be a sign of what the sequels have planned.

There are only a few major new cast members for the sequels, such as Jason Momoa’s mystery villain character and Daniela Melchior in an undisclosed role.

But, it could be Brie Larson who has the biggest role to play in the Fast & Furious franchise’s finale, possibly returning as a new member of the O’Connor family. The Captain Marvel star’s role is not known, here’s why Brie Larson could be Brian’s sister in Fast X.

Fast & Furious Keeps Hinting At Brian’s Return

The Fast & Furious franchise dropped its biggest hint that Brian O’Connor will return during F9’s ending. After Dominic Toretto’s crew helped save the world once again, they return to the original Toretto house for a traditional family cookout.

It is only after the main characters in F9 are sitting down that Dom notes the empty chair at the table. Mia responded saying, “He’s on his way,” before F9 shows Brian O’Connor’s traditional blue Nissan Skyline GT-R pull into the driveway. While Brian isn’t seen in the scene, it was viewed by many as set up for the possibility that Paul Walker’s character will be in Fast & Furious 10.

There is so far no confirmation that Brian O’Connor is going to be in Fast X, but the teases have continued. Mia is coming back once more after Vin Diesel demanded it.

While her absence in the original script could point to Fast & Furious 10 not having any plans for Brian, her addition might have changed that. The movies can only continue to use Mia and not show Brian for so long before it gets even stranger that he isn’t involved in the action.

Brian O’Connor’s return also sounds quite plausible based on what people involved with the Fast & Furious franchise have said. Fast X director Justin Lin mentioned that he thinks about that possibility every day as he figures out how to wrap up a story 20+ years in the making.

Meanwhile, Paul Walker’s real-life brothers have remained open to the idea of helping bring Brian back in the sequels. Instead of bringing Paul Walker back, Fast & Furious 10 could continue Brian O’Connor’s legacy differently.
