Captain Marvel star Brie Larson joins Fast and Furious 10

There’s no shortage of performers in the next installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. Now, there’s another Oscar winner in the mix. Brie Larson has been added to the cast of Fast and Furious 10 in an undisclosed role.

Larson won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Joy Newsome in Room. Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron are the only other Oscar winners among the Fast Saga cast. But only Theron and Larson are confirmed to appear in the next film. Larson’s other film credits include The Glass Castle, Kong: Skull Island, and Captain Marvel.

Vin Diesel made the announcement about Larson’s role in the next Fast installment via a post on his Instagram account. Within it, Diesel welcomed Larson to “the family” and teased that fans “have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology.”

Ironically, Larson is also the third comic book film veteran to be added to the sequel. Aquaman star Jason Momoa is reportedly playing the villain in the latest installment. The Suicide Squad‘s Daniela Melchior has also joined the cast as a character that has yet to be revealed.

Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Sung Kang, and Nathalie Emmanuel will all be back for the penultimate chapter of the franchise. Some of the other returning cast members have yet to be officially confirmed. Justin Lin is returning to direct Fast and Furious 10 and its sequel. But the next movie won’t hit movie theaters until May 19, 2023.

Captain Marvel review: Brie Larson’s cosmic hero makes the MCU feel new again
Captain Marvel review

Even after 20 installments of wildly successful movies that have turned the Marvel Cinematic Universe into a box-office blockbuster factory, Captain Marvel arrives in theaters as one of the studio's most controversial, seemingly risky projects.

Not only is Captain Marvel the studio's first female-led superhero movie, but it relies on a hero off mainstream audiences' radar to tell a story set in the shadow of two of the MCU's most hyped-up projects so far: Last year's Avengers: Infinity War and its upcoming conclusion, Avengers: Endgame. It isn't entirely apparent from the previews, but Captain Marvel also happens to be the studio's most self-aware movie to date -- a quality that can either work in a movie's favor or against it, depending on how it's handled.
