Speaking to Variety at the Season 3 premiere of his Apple TV+ show, Seethe actor revealed snippets about his x fast character:
“I can finally be the bad guy. I was the good guy for a while. He’s very sadistic and androgynous and he’s a bit of a peacock… He’s got a lot of problems, this guy. He definitely has daddy issues.
Jason Momoa calling his character a “peacock” is quite interesting, as the term refers to a showy, sometimes arrogant man who is constantly trying to draw attention to himself. Besides these details, the promise of a sadistic and androgynous villain arouses interest. It would be pretty exciting to see what portrayal of Momoa’s villain audiences get rewarded with under the direction of Louis Leterrier and writers Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau.

“Things are changing, and even the villain roles I’m playing now are quirky. I’m a peacock at the highest level and having the time of my life.
In the tenth entry in the franchise, Momoa will be seen sporting painted fingernails and driving a vibrant purple car. With a lot of emotional baggage to unpack, it would be interesting to see what the actor x fast character would rise up.
As for the other details surrounding the penultimate film of the fast furious franchise, which all audiences are aware of, involves the return of Charlize Theron, who plays Cipher, and Sung Kang, who plays the fan-favorite role of Han Lue. Fans would also see Brie Larson in the film. From these details, it can be seen that the film builds an intriguing premise to look forward to. It’s a matter of waiting, for now.
