For her, this comes down to how whose female characters are treated. The jury has not been formed yet.
In a recent interview, Michelle Rodriguez was asked if her character, Letty, would come back with Vin Diesel and the gang of the band. next film. Unfortunately, things are not yet firm and it all comes down to the scenario, which she has not read yet. Here's what she had to say about it.

"
Interestingly, Vin Diesel has recently shared a video. to his instagram signaling that production begins soon. Michelle Rodriguez appears in the video at his side. So, maybe they exchanged points after this interview, but before it was published?
It is hard to say with certainty, but it is hard to imagine that the team of creators can not find a way to make her happy. Chris Morgan, who has long been the main screenwriter of the series, gave the reins to Daniel Casey, a young man. Maybe a new pair of eyes and a new perspective could give Letty and the other women in this series the take that they deserve?
