At long last, the Fast & Furious franchise appears intent on adding more women to the usually male-centric movies. As a result, one of the most popular female characters from the series’ history might be returning from the grave for an upcoming appearance. Yes, according to insider Daniel Richtman, Gal Gadot is currently in talks to reprise the part that first put her on the map.
It’s unclear in which film she’d return in – be it one of the mainline entries or a spinoff – or how she’d be back in action given what happened when we last saw her, but this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard that the Israeli liaison known as Gisele Yashar may rise from the dead. It seems that the actress is now having conversations to reprise the role and hopefully, we’ll hear something official quite soon.
Of course, we learned a few weeks back that Dwayne Johnson has been lobbying to get her into Hobbs & Shaw 2, though the result of his efforts is currently unclear. Either way, it seems like Gadot will appear in the franchise once more for the first time since her character’s death in 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, and that can only be good news.

It would be nice for things to all come full circle, too, given how her performance in the series launched her into international stardom and thus helped her land a career-defining role in Warner Bros.’ blockbuster hit Wonder Woman. How the writers will explain away her death remains to be seen, but we’re excited to see them try. After all, the “why” doesn’t really matter. We’re willing to accept any outlandish explanation in order to see her back on screen with the gang.
Tell us, though, would you like to have Gal Gadot star in an upcoming Fast & Furious project, or would you rather Gisele Yashar remain deceased? Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think!
