Dwayne Johnson confirms he and Vin Diesel have squashed their beef

Dwayne Johnson confirms he and Vin Diesel have squashed their beef

Dwayne Johnson has revealed he and Vin Diesel have put the past behind them in a new video.

After their notorious feud on Fast Five, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel have finally put aside their differences.

Johnson spoke about this when announcing that he would be returning to the Fast & Furious franchise as a straight-laced lawmaker, Hobbs.

This is despite the Black Adam star publicly blasting his former co-star on social media just a few years ago.

The two actors first locked heads on the set of Fast Five, with Johnson appearing as Luke Hobbs – a DSS agent tasked with going after Dom Toretto (Diesel) and his crew.

After the fast-paced action film wrapped, rumours started to emerge of the pair’s on-set feud.

In fact, things became so bad that Johnson allegedly only returned for the franchise’s eighth instalment on the condition that he and Diesel didn’t have any scenes together.

He also later refused to star in the saga's finale.

Shortly after this, the wrestling star took to Instagram and vented his frustration with his former co-star saying his ‘blood was boiling’ in a now-deleted post.

"My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em," the 51-year-old wrote, "My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t.”

He continued, adding: “The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a**es.”

The post finished: When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling—you’re right. #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses."

He later apologised for what he had said, saying he should have kept any disagreement private.

And the pair have now buried the hatch.

According to Johnson, the pair settled their differences last year.

Not only did he have a brief cameo at the end of Fast X, but the Red Notice actor revealed that he will star in a spin-off movie about his iconic character.

Earlier today, the former wrestler posted on social media announcing his return to the Fast franchise and told fans in the caption: “Luke Hobbs will be returning to the Fast & Furious franchise.”

It continued: “The next Fast & Furious film you’ll see the legendary lawman in will be the HOBBS movie that will serve as a fresh, new chapter & set up for FASTX: Part II.”

He also uploaded an accompanying video, during which he discussed his longtime feud with his co-star.

“Last summer Vin and I put all the past behind us. We’ll lead with brotherhood and resolve - and always take care of the franchise, characters & FANS that we love,” he said.

Johnson added that he’d approached the film with an ‘audience first’ mentality, that this had been the driving force behind his return.

We can’t wait to see Johnson get into gear with his next Fast film.
