Massive fan of the first few, I was clinging on to the ridiculousness of it but they must be clutching at straws now. Not the biggest fan of her given how she acts so stubborn in most roles she plays.

Another user Tweeted:

I really can’t wait until Vin Diesel announces that these two are joining the Fast and Furious cinematic universe.
