FIRST LOOK: Idris Elba’s Fast And Furious Spinoff Villain Revealed

BBC

Idris Elba is officially part of the Fast and Furious Cinematic Universe, as the English actor plays the villain of the upcoming spinoff movie Hobbs & Shaw.

Elba stars opposite Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, and while we’ll still have to wait a bit for a trailer, Johnson has shared a picture of Elba’s character in action, along with some information on the new role.

“I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains,” writes Johnson.

“A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW. The name: BRIXTON. The record: UNDEFEATED. The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS.”

That showdown will commence on August 2, 2019 when Hobbs & Shaw drives into theaters.
