There are compelling reasons to believe that Gal Gadot’s character, Gisele Yashar, will make an appearance in Fast and Furious 9. Gadot made her debut in The Fast Saga in 2009 and has appeared in three installments to date. Fast and Furious 9 is scheduled to be the second-to-last movie in the main Fast & Furious series, but there’s still interested in expanding the universe through spinoffs. Here’s our theory explaining why Gadot could soon be reuniting with her Fast family.
Gadot’s casting in 2009’s Fast & Furious served as her first acting gig in a feature film. Director Justin Lin was clearly impressed by the actress since she evolved into a key member of Dominic’s crew in several films. Gadot’s experience serving in the Israel Defense Forces actually helped with her casting since she was knowledgeable when it came to weapons and hand-to-hand combat. Following her time in The Fast Saga, the actress was cast as Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before headlining a solo film.

Despite the fact that the character was seemingly killed off, all hope is not lost for Gadot’s future in The Fast Saga. The Fast and Furious 9 trailers already revealed that justice for Han is finally coming and Gisele could be another big figure to make a comeback. Unfortunately, moviegoers will be forced to wait a bit longer to uncover the rest of Fast and Furious 9‘s mysteries since the film was pushed to an April 2021 release date, which is a whole year later. The decision was made in response to the coronavirus pandemic and its current effects on the entertainment industry. For now, there’s more time to speculate on what’s to come with The Fast Saga.
Fast & Furious 9 Has A Secret Star Cameo
While doing press for his latest action film, Bloodshot, Vin Diesel revealed that Fast and Furious 9 will feature a major cameo. Although he described the cameo as “awesome,” the actor played coy on any other details. The question now is whether the secret cameo will be a returning star or a new actor joining The Fast Saga for Fast and Furious 9 and potentially the tenth and final installment in the franchise. If the movie does decide to bring back a former character, there are several figures that could make their monumental return.
Eva Mendes’ Monica Fuentes could be a fun candidate to return in Fast and Furious 9. Her character was a U.S. customs agent who partnered with Brian O’Conner and Roman Pearce to take down a drug lord in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Her character was last seen in the Fast Five post-credits scene when she handed Luke Hobbs a file that revealed Letty Ortiz was still alive. Since then, the actress has been absent from the franchise. The best returning character, however, would be Gisele.
Gadot’s character is considered one of the primary figures in The Fast Saga for her presence in Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6. Gisele was initially introduced as a liaison for Arturo Braga before getting caught up in the chaos brought on by the drug lord. She later aligned with Dom for the heist in Brazil and started a romance with Han before returning to help in the fight against Owen Shaw. Unfortunately, Gisele’s time on the crew was cut short when she presumably met her death toward the end of Fast & Furious 6.
How Gadot’s Gisele Could Still Be Alive
In order for Gadot to be able to return to The Fast Saga, her character would basically need to come back to the dead. In an attempt to stop Owen Shaw’s crew from escaping in heavy transport aircraft, Dom’s crew used specially equipped vehicles to prevent the plane from taking off. At one point, Gisele was hanging off the back of a speeding Range Rover. Han was about to help her but in an effort to save his life from one of Shaw’s men, Gisele let go of his hand so he could defend himself. It was then believed that Gisele fell to her death on the runway. But crazier things have happened in the franchise so there’s always a chance that she’s still alive.
Thankfully, for Gisele fans, characters seemingly coming back from the grave isn’t unheard in The Fast Saga. With a series known for parachuting cars, amnesia subplots, and a spinoff featuring a genetically engineered antagonist, anything is truly possible. Letty was thought to be killed off in the fourth film before making her shocking return two installments later. Now with Han very much alive and set to rejoin his old crew, who’s to say Gisele can’t do the same?
Though Gisele was shown falling from a car from a high rate of speed, her body was never recovered, at least on screen. Many viewers abide by a “no body, no death” rule where nothing is confirmed unless otherwise directly revealed. Maybe Gisele was severely injured but not every member of Shaw’s team was taken out. Someone on his side could have taken Gisele to an unknown location where she has been recovering but also taken hostage. Now that the Shaw family isn’t a primary enemy of Dom and his crew, it’s possible she resurfaces.
Why Bringing Gal Gadot Back Makes Sense For F9
Han coming back into the fold will obviously be a major storyline throughout F9. His character was thought to be dead for years prior to the events of the upcoming film. Since Han and Gisele go hand-in-hand with their romantic past, it’s possible that he found her and the two have been hiding out. Dom’s desperate need for help could be what brings them out of their secret retirement of sorts.
It also doesn’t hurt that Gadot is in high demand so her involvement in the final two films would serve as a big draw. Since portraying Gisele, Gadot’s star status and popularity have grown exponentially. Of course, that has a lot to do with her portrayal as Wonder Woman in the DCEU. With Wonder Woman 1984 set to release this summer, Gadot may have been able to film a cameo for F9 with an agreement to star in the final film if her schedule allows. It’s also possible that she and Han will be the first of many returning characters.
As the penultimate installment within The Fast Saga, it’s not surprising that familiar faces are rejoining the team. Dom is not only facing Cipher again, but he’s also up against his younger brother, Jakob, who happens to be a deadly assassin with a vendetta. Dom might need every ally he can scrounge up, even former enemies, as the conflict builds in Fast and Furious 9 and the tenth film. Whatever may happen, it’s clear that there will be a memorable ending to this franchise that has spanned over two decades.
