SPOILERS: Dwayne Johnson just revealed the new team of heroes set for Hobbs & Shaw sequel

August 2nd, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, if you haven’t seen Hobbs & Shaw yet, the movie (here’s my review) has a couple of very cool cameos and this article his about those… so, if you’ve not seen it yet, you have been warned.


So, the movie opened last night and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson took to Twitter to thank everyone for going and to enjoy the movie… but in the tweet (below) he wrote: “Enjoy the surprise cameos..because that’s a look at the future team”.

Now, if you’ve seen the movie you’ll know that at the beginning of the movie Ryan Reynolds pops up as CIA agent Locke, hired to give Hobbs his new mission… and who may have history with him. It’s a ver funny role and Reynolds does appear later in the movie a few times too. Of course, Reynolds worked with director David Leitch when he directed Deadpool 2.

Then later Kevin Hart – who is a famously great friend of Johnson’s – pops up as Dickley, an Air Marshal. He has a couple of really fun scenes in the movie and is a great asset to Hobbs and Shaw on their mission.

It’s also worth noting that Rob Delaney, wholesaled played Peter W in Deadpool 2 also appears briefly as another CIA agent.

So, if the team, moving forward is Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby (as Hattie Shaw who more-or-less steals the movie), Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Hart and Rob Delaney, then this is going to be an immensely fun franchise to stick with.

Anyway, what say you all? Is this a team you could be excited for?

Let me know…

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….
