Michelle Rodriguez Explains Why She Might Quit Fast & Furious Series

"It's been a good ride and I'm grateful for the opportunity the fans and studio have provided me over the years..."

Two more films are planned in the Fast & The Furious series, which Rodriguez's character Letty is presumably set to star in.

Maybe this could be an indication that the franchise is giving a serious thought about powerful female characters in the movie.

Charlize Theron, Nathalie Emmanuel, Devon Aoki and Helen Mirren have also appeared in the Fast & Furious franchise in key roles during its 16 year history.

Although she's had her fair share of auto stunts and fight scenes, Rodriguez is still the only woman who has stuck with the male-heavy franchise since the beginning, and now, she's threatening to leave if she and the other female characters aren't given better parts.

The actress shared her thoughts on Instagram saying "I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise" over what she hinted is a lack of appreciation for the female roles in the films.

Samantha said: "Massive power cut...whole airport at a standstill and no communication with regards to what is happening". The BBC has said that the outage caused the main hall to be plunged into darkness, with only emergency lighting available.

The exhausted, tried-and-tested franchise is a hugely successful one - so much so, there'll be ten films about what is basically men in cars made altogether - with one redeeming quality: Michelle Rodriguez.

Apparently, it wasn't the first time for Rodriguez to talk about her frustration over the movie's male-heavy casting. Star Michelle Rodriguez has spoken out about this exact thing, going so far as to say she may have to decline to participate in future films unless something changes.

(L-R) Tyrese Gibson, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster accept an award for the "Fast and the Furious" film franchise at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards. While it's not entirely a matter of who got more screen time, what seems to be the issue at hand is that numerous female characters bring nothing to the franchise but a body for men to gaze at.

"At the end of the day, the only leverage I have as an individual is my participation". "I'm getting older. Eventually it's going to wrinkle up and I'm not going to be able to use it".

The Fast and Furious franchise prides itself on having a diverse cast of characters who resonated with audiences worldwide.
