We’re still a little less than three months away from “Fast and Furious 6” — trust us, we’re counting — and there is already a utterly fantastic rumor on the web about the sequel, specifically who will be the villain.
The rumor comes from Ain’t It Cool News, who claim to know about a Marvel-style stinger at the end of “Fast and Furious 6.” You should probably stop reading if you don’t want to know the secret.
So, here it goes…
According to AICN, the final scene of “Fast and Furious 6” will not only reveal the villain for the seventh film, but also place “Tokyo Drift” firmly in the chronology of the series. (Thank God.)
After the newest movie’s happy ending, we get a scene that seems unrelated. Some sort of elaborate car crash takes place, and one of the vehicles is the clear winner. The victor gets out and approaches the loser’s over-turned wreck. It’s Sung Kang’s Han in the car, and the man above him is Jason Statham.
While the character is only played by Statham (dammit.), it’s revealed that he’s the brother of Luke Evans’ character, so we’ll have a nice revenge story for the seventh movie.
So they have found a way to get Statham into “Fast and Furious.” He had been offered the villain role for “6,” but turned it down.
What do you think of the rumor? Do you hope it’s true? While we wait to find out if this is real or not, leave a comment below and check out the new theatrical trailer.
