After the blockbuster success of Furious 7 (it’s become one of the top 10 highest grossing of all time!), it’s hardly a surprise that Furious 8 is coming. But, will Dwayne Johnson’s Agent Hobbs be in it?
“Of course, it can’t go on without Hobbs,” Johnson told us at the press conference for San Andreas.
That’s good news to all those who adore the Johnson character that first arrived in Fast Five and has become an integral part of the Fast family.
The character has quickly become so beloved, that rumors started swirling that Agent Hobbs would be getting his own explosive spin-off sooner than later. There was even initial talk that that Hobbs solo film could appear between Furious 7 and Furious 8. That’s unlikely, but it seems that Johnson believes that a Hobbs spin-off is more likely to happen than not.
“We all are interested in it. I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we’ll see. I still think for me personally we’ve created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want. That’s my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input.”
