Speaking of odd couples. “Fast X” is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to funky match-ups. Charlize Theron’s Cipher is, of course, back as a secondary antagonist. She’s probably the one pulling Dante’s strings, just as she did with Dom in “The Fate of the Furious.” But “Fast X” will apparently pit her against Letty too, as the saga veers further into science fiction.
I don’t even want to suggest that Cipher and Letty have somehow swapped bodies in this new adventure, but you can’t put anything past the “Fast” saga at this point. Whatever’s going on in the mysterious medical lab that she and Letty find themselves in, it’s just the beginning of this new take on the character.
“You’re going to see Cipher in a way you’ve never seen her before,” Leterrier recently told Entertainment Weekly. “Cipher is the devil, so when Cipher gets scared, it’s interesting. Cipher, who thought she was the devil, will really see the devil in this movie, and that will scare her and rattle her to the core.”
“Fast X” hits theaters on May 19, 2023.
