Fate of the Furious Fast and Furious Vin Diesel

Valiant may publish some pretty terrific superhero comic books, but they’re not exactly a household name. So if Sony’s planned cinematic universe adapting these characters is going to take flight, it’s going to need a movie star. Someone fast. Maybe even someone furious.
