“The name: BRIXTON. The record: UNDEFEATED. The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS.”
Here’s your first look at Idris Elba as the villain in Hobbs & Shaw, the upcoming spinoff to the Fast and the Furious Franchise.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has posted a picture to his Instagram welcoming Elba to the cast alongside some information on the role he plays.
“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.” says 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.”
This isn’t the first time Johnson has shown us a sneaky look at the new film via his Instagram. Just last week the star posted a sneak peak of himself and Jason Statham (as a now-reformed Shaw) from the set.
Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch directs the film which is currently slated for an August 2019 release.
