'Hobbs and Shaw' Star Idris Elba Wreaks Havoc in New Photo
Johnson shared a first look at Elba in action via Instagram on Thursday. Thanks to Johnson's post, we know that his new co-star plays a dangerous villain named Brixton.
"I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains," Johnson wrote in part. "A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW."
The actor also promised the "showdown of all showdowns."
Their characters have a high bar to clear as they follow a series of eight high-octane action flicks, but we're excited to see how this "havoc, hell and mayhem" comes about.
"Hobbs and Shaw" opens July 26.
