As was revealed earlier this month within the first Quick X trailer, Momoa was solid as Dante Reyes, the son of Hernan Reyes, the late foremost antagonist from 2011’s Quick 5. Dante is now out for revenge in Quick X, and director Louis Leterrier has joined in on hyping up Momoa’s character, in addition to touched on his connection to Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto.
Shortly after the Quick X trailer premiered, Louis Leterrier opened up about why Jason Momoa’s character was linked to Quick 5, noting that how there’s a “value for justice” and a “value to Dom’s decisions,” and Dante Reyes exemplifies that. Leterrier extra not too long ago described Dante as “whole chaos” to Whole Movie and talked about how “obsessed” the character is with Dom. In his phrase:
Household has been the driving theme (pun totally supposed) of the Quick & Livid franchise for the reason that starting, and as we hit the tenth installment in the principle movie collection, Dom has assembled a big lineup of people that may have his again it doesn’t matter what. The draw back is that with so many individuals he cares about, that simply provides Dante Reyes extra folks to focus on. As Louis Leterrier revealed, Dante has extensively studied Vin Diesel’s character and the folks in his tight-knit circle, so he is aware of these weak factors to hit. Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw adopted an identical plan of action in Livid 7 when he “killed” Han (he didn’t truly die), however now Deckard’s one of many good guys.
