Jason Momoa, who plays Dante Reyes- the villain- in Fast X has revealed the reason why his character doesn’t have a big fight sequence against Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto.
Momoa’s character is a cold-blooded baddie seeking revenge for his father, Hernan Reyes- who died in Fast Five- and he knows he has an advantage over Dominic Toretto. Therefore, in an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Momoa explained that his character Dante Reyes gets off on pain, and that is the reason there isn’t a big fight sequence between the two characters.
According to Momoa, his character loves to be beaten up, and it is more interesting than having a showdown between the two. Dante consistently has the upper hand on Dom, and it’s scary when someone gets off on the pain they inflict on others.
Momoa adds that through his character’s love for pain, comes a hint of humour. Although the showdown between the two characters will eventually happen, Momoa wanted to explore the character’s love for pain and how it affects him.
Fast X follows Dom and his family as they face off against a new villain, Dante Reyes, played by Jason Momoa. Brie Larson has also been cast in the film as an agent who partners with Vin Diesel.
