[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”27308″ img_size=”950×553″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]While Jason Statham is branching out from the main Fast & Furious franchise in Hobbs & Shaw, his character originated as Deckard Shaw, the man who killed fan-fav Han. Hobbs & Shaw will feature Statham and Dwayne Johnson teaming up and essentially being the hero of the story. With the character having become a reluctant protagonist in the franchise, when he was originally set up as an antagonist in Furious 7; screenwriter Chris Morgan promises fans that there will be justice for Han.
“I love ‘justice for Han’. Sung Kang is a great friend, and Han is a character that I adore. I would say that the super-arc for Deckard Shaw is going to be one of the most interesting, cool, rewarding character arcs in the franchise. Justice for Han is owed. It’s something we have discussed for a very long time and want to give the right due to. I think the audience will be satisfied and should know it’s coming. There’s a line in Hobbs & Shaw that is right before the battle in Samoa where Shaw says to his sister, ‘There’s things I’ve done that I have to make amends for.’ That line was specifically written and put in there just to let everyone know that he is talking about Han — it is on his mind. It tortures him, and he’s going to get to it.”
With the Fast franchise previously stating that it is not afraid to venture to space, could a resurrection for Han be possible?
Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters this Friday.
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
