We have a new look at the starring trio of the upcoming Fast and Furious spinoffÂ Hobbs and Shaw. Star Dwayne â€œThe Rockâ€ Johnson posted a new image that for the first time shows off the two main characters with the man who will be their nemesis, Idris Elba.
Posted on Instagram, the image shows off Johnson and Jason Statham standing front and center as the titular Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. The two characters appeared in multiple movies of the main Fast and Furious franchise but their friend/enemy dynamic was so interesting producers decided to make a spinoff solely focusing on the two characters.
An exclusive lilâ€™ taste of biggest showdown the summer has ever seen. The Outlaw Lawman, HOBBS. The International Spy, SHAW. The Baddest Bad Guy the Fast Furious franchise has ever had, BRIXTON. Weâ€™re either gonna get along or we get it on. Fuuuck gettinâ€™ along, gettinâ€™ it on is way more fun. On a biz note, this film has been a fun one to produce and our 🌎 audience is gonna have an absolute blast this summer. #FastAndFuriousPresents #HobbsAndShaw @sevenbucksprod @hhgarcia41 📸

The first-look image also contains Fast and Furious newcomer Idris Elba as Brixton.Â
Hobbs and Shaw will partner up to stop Brixton with the help of Shawâ€™s little sister, Hattie Shaw, portrayed by Vanessa Kirby. Aside from that, we donâ€™t know too much about the movie. But we do know that it should be a blast when it drives into theaters August 2.
