Written by Fast and the Furious stalwart Chris Morgan and directed by John Wick’s David Leitch, who most recently helmed Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2, Hobbs and Shaw certainly looks to be as action-packed as anything else in the Fast and Furious franchise, and with the added bonus of Idris Elba. He shows up as the villain that inspires the unlikely team-up, making this trailer a Twitter thirst post waiting to happen. Hobbs and Shaw looks like it’ll be playing off the differences between its leads whilst still forcing them to fight a lot of bad guys together.
The big question, though, is will we get #JusticeForHan? Or will the series rewrite that history to turn Statham’s Deckard Shaw into a more clear cut (anti)hero rather than the villain he was when fans first met him? We’ll have to wait until August 2 to find out, and until then, we’ll be keeping our eyes on these two unlikely allies.
