Daniela Melchior may join Jason Momoa in Fast and Furious 10

The next chapter in The Fast Saga has another DC veteran in mind for a role in the film. Via The Wrap, Daniela Melchior is in negotiations to sign on to Fast and Furious 10. Details about her part were not disclosed.

Melchior has been a professional actress in her native Portugal since 2014, with leading roles in Mulheres, Massa Fresca, Ouro Verde, A Herdeira, and Valor da Vida. She also provided the voice of Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman in the Portuguese language version of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. However, she is best known in the United States for her appearance as Ratcatcher 2 in The Suicide Squad. As the name implies, Ratcatcher had a strong affinity for rats. She was also one of the few characters to survive that film.

Jason Momoa, another DC films veteran, is also attached to Fast and Furious 10 in a role rumored to be the film’s primary villain.

So far, there haven’t been any details revealed about Fast and Furious 10‘s story. But given the way that the last nine films have played out, it’s likely to be another globe-trotting adventure centered around cars, stunts, and “family.”

Vin Diesel will be back as Dominic Toretto, with Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, Sung Kang as Han Lue, and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as Tej Parker.

Justin Lin has helmed five of the Fast and Furious films, and he will be back to direct the final two movies as well. Fast and Furious 10 will hit theaters on May 19, 2023. Fast and Furious 11 is expected to be the final film in the franchise.

In 2001, an undercover police officer named Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) infiltrated the world of illegal street racing to investigate a series of heists in The Fast and the Furious. Brian befriends Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), the alpha and leader of the heists, and the two form an unexpected brotherhood. Dom believes in loyalty, hard work, and most importantly, family, which quickly rubs off on Brian.

Nine films later, these themes remain the backbone of The Fast Saga, which is set to release its 10th installment, Fast X, on May 19. Gone are the days of street racing for pocket change and hijacking trucks for DVD players. Now, the franchise is global as our heroes prevent nuclear war and mass destruction. Speaking of heroes, the cast is a family on and off the set, with many actors reprising their roles they originated over two decades ago. Who are the best members of the family?

10 worst CGI in superhero movies
Green Lantern fires a machine gun in Green Lantern.

Computer-generated imagery can make or break a movie, and superhero movies are especially reliant on such effects. VFX artists pour all their sweat and tears into bringing comic book heroes and villains to life, and they don't always get the recognition they deserve.

However, when these artists don't have the right tech or are put under strict deadlines, the resulting CGI can be so awful that people on the internet will never let it go. While not everything in a film can be 100% perfect, there have been a handful of superhero movies with scenes or characters that could have used some more time in postproduction.
