Fast and Furious 6 has a mid-credits ending scene that reveals a new member for the cast of the seventh film. Spoilers lie ahead, so if you haven’t seen it, you may want to close this window.
The Fast and The Furious has been a bumpy ride, but thanks to Vin Diesel and director Justin Lin, we’ve seen the series turn from a cheesy CG race-fest to a full-blown action series. Starting with The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, the series has progressively gotten better at telling a story. Fast Five saw one of the first times Dwayne Johnson actually added to a film franchise he starred in, and even gave a reason for 2 Fast 2 Furious to exist in the series, alongside an extra scene thrown into The Fast and The Furious later on.
Now with Fast and Furious 6, we saw the return of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) girl presumed dead and the introduction of a new kind of villain in Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) who has turned up the scale of the series to an international level, as if Tokyo Drift hadn’t done that already.
In the film, Owen Shaw clearly mentioned having a brother. Seeing as Shaw is British, and has a brother, what actors come to mind when you think of British action stars?
In a twist straight out of Die Hard, it appears that Owen Shaw’s brother will be played by the Transporter himself, Jason Statham. In the mid-credits ending scene, Han (Sung Kang) is killed in footage from The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift. In a follow-up scene, we see the man who killed him driving a Mercedes.
Yup, it appears Jason Statham is strongly rumored to be the villain in Fast and Furious 7. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the film will be taking place in Tokyo and the Middle East, drawing the loop closed at last, and possibly moving into a new realm of James Bond proportions.
What do you think of Jason Statham being the villain in the follow-up to Fast and Furious 6?
