Looks like Hobbs & Shaw sequel is happening…

More news from the Fast & Furious universe tonight as Hobbs & Shaw finishes up its first weekend on release.

Star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has shared a post from Vulture in which they try to work out who owns the villainous voice behind the Eteon organisation in the movie.

Johnson says in his Tweet: “The person has history with Hobbs. It’ll be revealed in the sequel. Get ready, you’ll be shocked.”

On first reading I assumed this meant the character has already been in the franchise but on further reading, it doesn’t necessarily mean that…

However, the big news seems to be that the star has pretty much confirmed that a sequel – as expected – is on the fasttrack.

While I didn’t love the movie as much as I hoped, the news of the new cast (here) and the big tease at the end has held my attention enough to stick around for part 2.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
