Fast and Furious 6 Logo Fast & Furious 6: New Photo of Michelle Rodriguez as Letty

The Super Bowl commercial for Fast & Furious 6 didn’t just give fans an actual title for the next installment in the resurrected series (not to mention some high-flying stunts), but video evidence that Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) has most certainly returned from the grave.

In honor of the public excitement over Rodriguez’s return, the actress has released a new still featuring her character, proving that even death can’t take the wrench out of a gearhead’s hand.

While it’s usually Vin Diesel who releases official assets to his Facebook fans, Rodriguez was given the duty of unveiling the new photo of Lefty. Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t answer the questions bothering fans most at this point, like why the character would remain hidden from Dom (Diesel) and why she’s second-in-command to new villain Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).

What it does prove is that whatever Letty’s been doing, it’s been working. We can’t imagine how Dom will react when he lays eyes on the love of his life again, but we’re glad to see Rodriguez back in the cast. Take a look:

As the official synopsis for Fast & Furious 6 explains, Dom, Brian (Paul Walker) and enemy-turned-partner Hobbs (Dwayne ‘The People’s Champ’ Johnson) will be working together to bring down an elusive team of drivers for hire. How Letty ended up on the team and not a coffin after her reported death in Fast & Furious (2009) will probably be a pivotal plot point, but whether the film brings a reunion or another bitter farewell remains to be seen.

We’ll take this opportunity to hope that Letty’s arrival will give Dom a chance to exhibit some kind of emotion, and in our opinion, returning Rodriguez to the permanent cast – not killing her off yet again – would be the wisest move.

We’re not saying that Diesel’s performances in the last films haven’t been enjoyable (since fans clearly adore them), but a romance between the two would be a more than welcome change at this point. After all, Brian and Mia (Jordana Brewster) should have a baby arriving any day now. It deserves a happy uncle.

  1. Yay!!! full trailer tomorrow!!! kinda makes you think that the super bowl spot was a waste of $8 million if they were just going to release the full trailer only days afterwards.

    • True!!

  2. **********Previous Installments Spoilers********

    Any theories on how Letty is still alive? If the FBI concluded that she was dead, and their story holds up with the killer’s account of what happened, how is she still alive? Did she just limp off with injuries from the roll-over crash and a bullet wound and disappear? Was no body ever recovered?

    So many questions! I am curious to see how the movie addresses this.

    • For all we know, the accident was probably staged. As we never actually saw the accident. What we saw was what Dom thought that happened at the scene.

      I don’t know, really. It was a HUGE twist. When I first saw it, I was like “Wait, what? WHAT?!”

      It’s interesting.

      • The killer knew what Dom was talking about and admitted to killing (or at least trying to kill) her. Her car was also recovered at the scene. So if the accident was staged, it was brilliant in that it fooled A) The would be killer, and B) Agent Brian O’Connor.

        Also, if she successfully faked her death, why not try to reconnect with Dom, Brian, Mia, or anyone else?

        It’s so confusing I’m anxious to hear what they come up with

        • Letty can’t remember nothing

    • I think the death was a fabrication used by the FBI

      • Then why didn’t Brian know about it since he was an agent at the time? And why didn’t the Rock or Eva Mendez know that Letty is still alive and at large? What would the FBI have to gain by withholding that kind of info from other law enforcement?

        • Deep cover.. to infiltrate Luke Evans’ dangerous gang..

    • Life Model Decoy.

      Oh wait… this isn’t and Agent Coulson/SHIELD thread.

  3. wait, I thought Dom was with the Brazilian cop, they showed them together at the end of Fast Five.

    • Yes, because Dom thinks Letty is dead so he was just moving on.

  4. I wish this retarded franchise would die already.

    • LOL, with the last one having made $620 mil. worldwide? Not gonna happen. #7 is already in the works. Personally, I can’t get enough of it.

  5. I just love Michelle Rodriguez. I watch fast and furious only because of her.I like her simplicity and cool attitude.

  6. I normally wouldn’t see it because Vin Diesel is in it but Michelle Rodriguez is in it too.

    I’m torn.

  7. hey for once Michelle doesnt die in something!! and she’s looking great!!

  8. a lot of good question to which I don’t know the answers. All I do know is…I CAINT WAIT! :)
    Cool Cars!
    Cool Cats!
    Hot Women!
    Big Stunts!
    What more does one need for a summer block buster! YEAH BABY!

  9. Was Letty undercover the entire time?? Was she recruited after the accident? what is going on??!!

    I can’t wait to see it.

  10. and han how the heck is he still alive he aldready died in tokyo drift!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Hope michelle if in fast 7 think she is sik and so glad that she come bk into it and to be with vin! They r so gud together can’t wait for next one already!

  12. I walked into the cinema expecting to write something about this being the must see film for the weekend, remembering the nostalgia of the original and the progressively worse but still kinda cool sequels (except for that abortion Tokyo Drift we’d all like to forget we saw) and the redeeming previous installment Fast Five that somehow redeemed and reinvented the franchise introducing ‘The Rock’ as a kick-ass anti-hero and started the franchise on a remarkably cool path with fast paced action that was grounded with a great balance of realism and “plausible” suspension of belief.

    What I walked away with was having my mind raped by the worse script (CENSORED) It is near impossible to believe this is the same writer and director duo from Fast Five – but then they were also responsible for Tokyo Drift.

    Firstly, for some reason they have dropped all of the iconic moments that we have come to love and expect. There is no action packed opening scene filled with car chases and metal carnage. Instead we are treated to being teased with a quick race where nothing happens and shown the aftermath of what must’ve been an incredible heist, and then, when we eventually do get to see some car chase scenes we quickly realize that they have also done away with those camera shots that weave in and out of the cars putting you in the center of the action.

    Gone is the great balance of realism and “plausible” suspension of belief and instead Furious 6 was written with absolutely no regard to physics or common sense. It’s one thing to have cars flipped over by driving head first into them with a ramp attached to the car, its another thing entirely to have bobbies keeping pace with a super fast custom F1 type of thing and almost overtaking it. But that’s small compared to the crap they actually came up with for this movie. Think super fast chase scenes with a tank (oxymoronic) and people flying through the air superman style like neo catching a damsel in distress mid air after being flung from… I’m just gonna stop there. Have your eyes raped spoiler free but don’t blame me for the loss of reasoning skills as you’re trying to forget to think all together just so you can soak up the visual aspects of this redonculous spectacle.

    It’s actually infuriating to watch a movie with some cool bits while realizing the absurdity of what you are expected to swallow.

    At one point there’s this huge cargo plane landing on a runway but keeps cruising so it can take off again and this 20min action scene develops with cars driving into the cargo hold of the plane and fighting erupting everywhere, in the plane, around the plane and it never runs out of runway, for over 20 minutes. Now call me crazy but at some point everyone in the cinema turned to each other and said this is ridiculous, we all as a unit got up and refused to have our intelligence mocked while expecting to sit through this crap and we burned the place to the ground.

    Here’s some math: a typical airliner cruises at about 160mph for takeoff. 160 ÷ 60 x 20 = a 53.3 mile long runway.

    The best thing about the movie was the fighting between the female characters. That’s probably because they cast MMA star Gina Carano opposite Michelle Rodriguez.
