Hobbs & Shaw’s mysterious villain will play a part in future Fast & Furious instalments, according to the film’s writer Chris Morgan.
Starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, the film served as a direct spin-off of the hugely popular franchise. Johnson made his debut in 2011’s Fast Five. That particular sequel is often seen as the transitional instalment, moving the franchise more towards being a series of outlandish, action-packed heist films.
The move paid off, not only at the box office but also in drawing increasingly recognizable stars to the cast. Statham first made a cameo appearance in Fast & Furious 6 before featuring more prominently in Furious 7.
The explosive spin-off ultimately saw government agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) forced to team-up with criminal and former antagonist Deckard Shaw (Statham) to halt the machinations of a superpowered villain named Brixton, played by Idris Elba. The film also starred Vanessa Kirby as Shaw’s MI6 agent sister, Hattie, and featured several surprise cameos.
Hobbs & Shaw also revealed that Elba’s character was only an instrument of a much larger and even more sinister force known as Eteon – which pulled the strings from within the shadows and answered to a mysterious figure known as The Director.
