Diesel has been a busy man, having lent his voice once again to the beloved character of Groot for Avengers: Endgameandstarred in Bloodshot, a superhero film of his own. He'll next be seen in F9, the highly anticipated new installment in theFast & Furious franchise. Originally set to hit theaters in April of 2020, the sequel was recently pushed back a year due to concerns stemming from the coronavirus. The actor has teasedthat a Last Witch Hunter sequel was in development before, but this post certainly gives more of a concrete and encouraging answer for fans.

Though Diesel may not be the most versatile actor in Hollywood, he has discovered his action franchise niche and embraced it fully. TheFast & Furious franchise has continued to expand and evolve in rewarding and entertaining ways, and the actor seems to have an affinity for B-movie projects outside of the beloved series. However, the quality of his outside endeavorshas been extremely inconsistent. The xXx franchise has been mindless, over the top fun while his other franchise projects such as Riddick and The Last Witch Hunter are overly serious and flat. However, fans are sure to be excited by this piece of news, as they can now eagerly await the the arrival of The Last Witch Hunter 2.
