If you were one of the people who saw “The Fate Of The Furious” on Thursday night, you probably found yourself on Google during the closing credits, trying to figure out whether the film had a credits scene that would tease “The Fast And The Furious 9.” The fact that there isn’t a stinger for the film might’ve come as a surprise to long-time fans of the franchise, but here’s another shocker for you: the film did originally have a post-credits sequence, but Vin Diesel cut it.

(You’re warned of some light spoilers from here on in.)

Those who have seen the film know that Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham‘s chemistry is one of the real highlights of the film; as the movie progresses, their two characters have gone from mortal enemies to begrudging friends, with at least one source telling The Wrap that NBC Universal had even considered a spinoff movie with both characters. To capitalize on this, the crew had originally shot a stinger that would put an exclamation point on this relationship, but this scene had been shot without Diesel’s knowledge or involvement. Once Diesel learned that the final moments of the film would focus on his two costars — and not the main storyline involving Dominic Toretto’s newfound family — the actor reportedly became “enraged,” raising all sorts of hell with NBC Universal until they finally agreed to remove the sequence from the film. As The Wrap notes, the studio went so far as to have “all the theatrical prints recalled and cut the scene.” Looks like we’ll have to wait one more movie to see those two characters throw down (or hug it out, whatever comes first).

Of course, this only heightens the controversy around Johnson’s comments towards Diesel during production, suggesting that this feud may be less the professional wrestling-style theatrics that some had expected and more a good, old-fashioned clash of egos. We’ll have to see how if and when this situation resolves itself before the next movie, but don’t expect to see a lot of shared screen time between Diesel and Johnson anytime soon.

“Fate Of The Furious” is now playing in theaters everywhere, but don’t stick through the credits, ‘cuz there ain’t nothing there.

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

    This series is flat out retarded. If you like this, congrats on having down syndrome

      and yet here you are commenting on this post. Doesn’t make much sense, and it makes you seem like the one with down syndrome. Moron.

      You are absolutely correct, Jai. Well said and done so with humor. Of course, the people who you reveal that like this kind of junk and going to react in their typical immature and angry manner, but I tend to think you’ll find that as amusing and retarded as the movie they actually like…lol…I mean, come on…seriously? Okay, like the movie, but admit it’s a pretty retarded pile of junk. If you can’t do that you’re really a lost soul…take care, Jai….thanks again for the laugh and instilling a bit of truth here on the internet…

      peoples likes and dislikes are subjective. Your attributing down syndrome to the enjoyment of a AAA action blockbuster just shows how juvenile and shallow you are. Go crawl back into your mothers decrepit cockhole you expired mung.

      • Mister Salty

        People’s likes and dislikes are subjective, but these movies are objectively awful. So much so that it’s insulting to people with down syndrome to suggest they would like this drivel.

      Says somebody who posts silly comments like you did? Ha. It’s called having fun. There are things in the world that even internet trolls can’t ruin, and that’s fun at the cinema. I bet you’re the fool who tweeted me the fate of Han Solo while I was at The Force Awakens.

    I applaud Monagle for resisting the mighty urge to say Vin Diesel was FURIOUS about this. I don’t think I would have been able to do it.

    Guess somene doesn’t like sharing the spotlight or someone else being the highlight

    The best film, very very nice!

    I think Dwayne’s feud against Vin Diesel is as real as the Rock’s feud against Stone Cold.

    • alex

      They have any monster trucks in these movies? I mean, they had Stone Cold driving one on the Raw show and it killed. The audience loved it.

  • AtomicFury

    Nothing like two meatsocks having a girly spat.

  • David Rodolff

    I stopped watching these movies after they jumped the building.
    They crossed into “A-Team” levels of unbelievability early on in the franchise, but they totally lost any credibility when that happened.

  • Jon

    “Recalled the prints”???

  • Nic Mullennex

    To the author: you missed a typo at the end. “We’ll have to see how if and how this situation resolves itself”

  • RicoSuave

    Mark Sinclair threw a hissy fit ? Johnson was right about Diesel.

    I’ve so much love for these movies it’s unreal. Aside from the dreary 4th movie (and much of the 2nd), the Fast & Furious movies are like a good lover. They don’t lie, they don’t cheat, they just make you very happy to be around them. And this new one is more of them same. But alas, sitting through 3 terrible songs and 15 minutes of end credits whilst rubbing my hands together like a baby, only to find no post-credits scene? That is not cool. And Charlize Theron is such a great movie star, so why her character is as interesting as the 10 millionth Facebook account hating Donald Trump is beyond me. But the action is joyous, as always. And something I really love with this franchise is the freshness of it. Every entry attempts something new, whether new characters, new twists and new cars etc… they do it all. Even the 4th movie, crap as it is, deserves praise for at least bringing us back Vin and the original gang.

    PS – Tokyo Drift is awesome! Please won’t somebody tell people to stop excluding it from the series!
