Fast & Furious 6 blu-ray to feature a spoilerish scene from James Wan's Fast & Furious 7
SPOILERS for those that have not seen FAST & FURIOUS 6!
For those picking up the FAST & FURIOUS 6 blu-ray on December 10th, get ready for a unique extra; a scene from director James Wan's FAST AND FURIOUS 7! We're well into spoiler territory here, so those who saw the post credits scene in the latest entry know that Han (Sung Kang) was killed at the end of the film by none other than Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), who vows that he's coming after the band of car thieves/heist bandits, starting with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel).
Here's what the scene entails:
The scene in question is the gang at Han's funeral. So, if you were hoping that his death at the end of Fast & Furious 6 (which, in a surprise twist, was actually from Tokyo Drift) was a misdirect, it looks like you're out of luck. He's dead for real, and it's hit the gang hard. There aren't any tears shed (they're all too manly for that), but Vin Diesel does croak out "You were always my brother, Han. He put you in this grave, so now I'll do the same to him."
But Han's death isn't the big takeaway from the scene. We already knew he was dead. The bombshell comes when Ludacris says, "First Han, now Hobbs is laid up, of all people." So at some point between FF6 and FF7, something serious happened to Hobbs to put him in the hospital. Considering new director James Wan has been tweeting about filming with the Rock, and the latter has been showing pictures from the set, it's not like the accident will be offscreen. We're betting that whatever happens to put Hobbs out of commission happens very early on during FF7, probably during the film's opening action scene.
So, it looks like Ian Shaw will likely be set up to be one bad mama-jama at the beginning of FAST AND FURIOUS 7 with the likelihood of him taking out Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs at the beginning of the film ('cause you KNOW The Rock ain't stayin' down for good!). Judging by this, it sounds like Wan is setting up Statham to be someone you don't want to f*ck with and then some, which is pretty damn cool, especially when it's Statham. The FAST & FURIOUS franchise continues to get better and better and even though director Justin Lin has traded in cars for secret agents (he's directing the next BOURNE film), I am excited as shit to see this beautiful smash-em-up series to continue.
FAST AND FURIOUS 7 starring Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black, Michael Jai White, Ronda Rousey, Djimon Hounsou, and of course, Bow Wow, races into theaters on July 11, 2014.
