After years of escalating insanity, the Fast and the Furious series has proven itself to be one of the best film franchises ever played in theaters, but even if you’re a super fan you probably spend most of your time trying to figure out exactly what’s happening in the films. Rest assured, you’re not the only one. These movies are straight-up bonkers, that’s why so many Fast and Furious fan theories revolve around the cuckoo bananas possibilities that may or may not be playing across the screen. Fan theories about the Fast and Furious franchise cover all of the bases for far-fetched theories, from Dom and the gang inadvertently crossing over with other film franchises, to time travel, and even some alternate universes.

Why doesn’t Dom ever seem to get hurt? Doesn’t Deckard Shaw look familiar? How do the Transformers play into all of this? These fan theories about Fast and Furious answer all of these questions, and a few you didn’t even know you had. In a rare move among producers of a major action movie franchise, it seems like the big players in the Fast and the Furious world are paying attention to some of these fan theories, and you’ll see how they’ve incorporated a few fan ideas into the films. Strap in, crack open a Corona with your family, and get ready to go down the rabbit hole with these Fast and Furious fan theories.

    Deckard Shaw Is Frank Martin From The Transporter

    Obviously, this theory got its start because Deckard and Frank are played by the same super tough bald Englishman, Jason Statham. But that's not the only thing these characters have in common.

    Redditor Connerws15's theory is that since they're both exceptionally talented in hand-to-hand combat, crazy driving, and looking smart in a suit, Deckard Shaw once worked under the code name "Frank Martin."

    Leo And Santos Were Working For Shaw The Entire TIme

    Leo and Santos may be the comic relief of the Fast and the Furious series, but what if they serve another, more nefarious, purpose? Redditor Dave_Kun thinks that while Dom and the gang were knocking back Coronas and stopping international crime, Deckard Shaw was building his own team of baddie car men, and he was using Leo and Santos to gather information on Dom.

    This makes perfect sense. It explains why Shaw knew so much about the team when his squad finally came into contact with them by the sixth and seventh films, and why the two goofs drop off the radar so quickly.

    A real-life conspiracy around the Fate of the Furious, it's said that something happened in the film's final scene that had to be changed at the last minute. But what could it have been? Some fans believe the film's final barbecue scene included Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner, and he had to scrubbed from the scene just before the film went to theaters, but no one involved with the film has confirmed or denied what has happened. What do you think happened? YouTube channel iHaveATheory outlines the controversy in the above video.

    The Fast And The Furious Films Are A Dungeons & Dragons Campaign

    If you know anything about Vin Diesel, you know that he's a D&D fan, and as a producer and arguably one of the most important people in the chain of command in the Fast and the Furious franchise, if he wants to make his movies into a D&D campaign based around cars, he can do it.

    Essentially, Something Awful contributor Jonny Angel believes the entire F&F series is based around escalation and procuring super cool items and abilities by choosing to do interesting and increasingly dangerous things with your friends.
