“This is a once in a lifetime experience, this whole Fast & Furious trip. How do they kill you multiple times and keep coming back? Like, come on. This is crazy …” The whole #JusticeForHan thing – Got me thinking , ‘Wow, there are actually people who appreciate the work I did as an actor. In my own Hollywood struggle as an Asian-American, in your darkest hours, you say, ‘Wow, there are actually people from all over the world who appreciate what I did with that character.

So far no explanation has been provided as to why or how Han can return from the dead. But considering the intermittent relationship that the Fast and Furious franchise has real-world logic, it should be easy to explain Han’s return. In any case, what fans want to see is Han return to the screen as a badass with the rest of Dominic Toretto’s crew of protagonists. , not long and involved explanations about his death and resurrection.

The biggest question fans have regarding Han’s return is whether the movie will address the elephant in the room, the fact that Han’s killer Deckard Shaw is now an unofficial member of Dom’s group. In an interview past, filmmaker Justin Lin, who left the Fast and Furious franchise after directing several deliveries, before returning to F9, hinted that one of the main reasons for his return was to ensure true justice for Han.

“Han means a lot to me because he was a character before Fast & Furious. Someone asked me about Han and [Deckard] Shaw. I was like, ‘Wait, what? Shaw at the barbecue at 8? [laughs] Really, he was so confused. One of the big reasons for coming back was that I felt like we had to correct something. “

It remains to be seen how Han will finally get justice against Shaw. It’s unlikely Han will be able to kill the last character, but a minor fight scene seems warranted at least, possibly along with a heartfelt apology from Shaw before the two team up to take on the movie’s new villain.

Directed by Justin Lin, F9 stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang, with Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Cardi B. The film hits theaters on June 25. of 2021. This news originated in Empire Online.
