This reappearance had been planned before Fast X even hit theaters. Vin Diesel, a key figure in the franchise, revealed the intricate planning and challenges behind Gadot’s return.
In an interview, Vin Diesel shared that the decision to bring Gisele back had been brewing long before the tenth film’s production.

However, these scenes didn’t make the final cut, despite the effort and intentions invested. Vin Diesel shared,
“We have shot other things with Gal, a long time ago, that might not have fit for that specific movie as a finale. Doing tags is a very tricky thing, you want this great talent but you have to be very careful to maintain the emotional state of your audience at the end of the movie. That’s what you’re juggling.
