Idris Elba is brandishing a flamethrower in a new photo from the Fast & Furious spinoff movie Hobbs & Shaw. A new addition to the Fast & Furious franchise, Elba will be playing the spinoff’s main villain known only as Brixton.
In Hobbs & Shaw, two Fast & Furious characters, Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw (played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, respectively), are reunited and have no other choice but to work side-by-side for the greater good. In the Fast & Furious films, Hobbs and Shaw worked on opposing sides of the law, which naturally put them at odds with each other. In their spinoff film, however, they have no choice but to team up – not only to prevent a cyber-enhanced anarchist named Brixton (Elba), but to save Shaw’s MI6 agent sister. The first trailer for the film proved exactly how powerful Elba’s character is, and a new photo from the film shows off the wide range of weaponry he’ll be equipped with in the new film.
