Either way, though, it’s a somber homage to the late Paul Walker. Aside from Vin, expect returns from the usual suspects—Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Dwayne Johnson—plus Charlize “Fast and Furiosa” Theron as a newly announced villain, Kurt Russell as the enigmatic Mr. Nobody, and Scott Eastwood as Mr. Nobody’s sidekick/protege.
This fan art poster is pretty intense…Your creativity inspires.
