Eva Mendes Could Be Returning To Fast & Furious After Vin Diesel Tease
Written by Alex Harrington

Eva Mendes, who featured heavily in 2 Fast 2 Furious as Brian O’Connor’s love interest and undercover U.S. Customs agent Monica Fuentes, could be returning to the Fast and Furious films after a tease from Vin Diesel.

While we hunker down to look forward to Fast 9, which brings back multiple characters from the history of the Fast Franchise such as Lucas Black, Bow Wow, Jason Tobin, and our very own Sung Kang, Vin Diesel has teased at Mendes’ character coming back to join the team.

2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious had fans falling in love with her character, but since that film, he name hasn’t been mentioned again – probably because Brian found his original film partner Mia Toretto. Fuentes was seen very quickly in a mid-credits scene in Fast 5 in which she reveals that Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Ortiz was still alive and working in another gang.

Now, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the conversation with Vin Diesel turned to Mendes. He didn’t confirm anything, but he’s certainly dropping some hints.

“We’ll just wait for 10. Let’s just say, the fact that you guys know that the studio is saying, ‘we can’t cover all this ground that needs to be covered in just one movie.’ You can only imagine what is to come.”

With Sung Kang’s Han coming back to the film after his apparent murder, there’s nothing we shouldn’t be expecting. So bring it on Fast Franchise, give us everything!
