‘Fast & Furious 8’ Wants Eva Mendes Back as Agent Fuentes?

‘Fast & Furious 8’ Wants Eva Mendes Back as Agent Fuentes?

After starring in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Eva Mendes also appeared in a mid-credits sequence of 2011's Fast Five. She makes contact with Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs, and tells him that Michelle Rodriguez' Leti is actually alive and well, working for the villainous Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), which helps set up 2013's Fast & Furious 6. For those who haven't seen Furious 7 yet, there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.

Furious 7 essentially sets up that Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew are now fully entrenched in the world of espionage, after helping Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) retrieve the God's Eye. Kurt Russell is expected to be back, and it's possible that Eva Mendes' Maria Fuentes could now be working for him, since she has plenty of deep cover experience. However, it might be somewhat awkward to bring her back into the fold, since, in 2 Fast 2 Furious, she was the love interest of the late Paul Walker's character Brian O'Connor. What do you think about Eva Mendes returning to the Fast and Furious franchise? Chime in with your thoughts below, and stay tuned for more details on Fast & Furious 8.
