Furious 7 is the latest movie in the Fast & the Furious franchise to grace the box office. Already, after one weekend it has easily won with moviegoers for the start of April.
With the massive success of Furious 7, there has now been a confirmation that Fast & Furious 8 is going to be added to the franchise and will also kick off a new trilogy in the series. This addition would it one of the biggest non-comic book related movies in the modern day.
Naturally, with sequels and extra movies being confirmed in the future of a series, there is also the notion of adding new talent and actors into the mix to keep everything fresh. This can include bringing back older and lesser known characters from earlier movies, which is likely the case with Eva Mendes’ character, Custom Agent Monica Fuentes, potentially making a comeback in Fast & Furious 8.
For those who remember, like Sam Tabar, the last time Mendes’ character was on screen was in the middle of the ending credits during Fast Five, where she made contact with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s character and hinted that Letty Ortiz, played by Michelle Rodriguez, was still alive.
As of right now, Mendes returning to do another Fast & Furious movie is only a rumor, though the idea is still a very big possibility.
