Fast & Furious 9 is coming to theaters in 2021, but will the forthcoming setup see Luke Evans’ villain Owen Shaw connect Dom’s household? Last observed in 2017’s The Fate of the Furious, Dracula Untold celebrity Luke Evans’ Owen Shaw was a villainous thorn in the side of the franchise’s heroes for two solid installments of the high-octane movie collection. He created Fast & Furious 6 a memorably thrilling affair before reappearing in Furious 7 (though he had been comatose, and as such much less of an active threat, in that 2015 sequel.
Fans are ready to know about Fast & Furious 9 – even more so because its launch was delayed by a whole year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many details of the film’s plot are still mostly shrouded in mystery, but former protagonist Owen Shaw would be a perfect addition to Dom’s crew for the upcoming movie. Now which Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw is off gallivanting around the planet with Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs within their spin-off series along with the Shaws are aligned with Dom’s team, does this imply that Owen may have the ability to join the”great” (well, good-ish) guys in Fast and Furious 9?
Owen Shaw was a well-loved villain, and Evans made a top foil to the throw-in his earlier franchise appearances. His villain’s yield would not be the most surprising appearance in the Fast and Furious franchise (that dubious honor has to visit R+B hitmaker Rita Ora’s hard-to-explain Fast & Furious 6 cameo). It also would not be a surprise to see Evans seem in a different blockbuster, as the versatile actor has shown up in everything from Beauty and the Beast to The Hobbit series, to Clash of the Titans and Murder Mystery, to… Look, the point is he is frequently found in big-budget movies.
It is also not unheard of for characters from the Fast & Furious films to reappear later on in the franchise, even in small roles. Lots of celebrities have left the show to reappear suddenly later to the delight of lovers. Series star Vin Diesel had a cameo in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and his profession were even busier than Evans’ in the time.But if Evans’ character is to reunite, he does have to do this as part of Dom’s team this time around.
By the time Fate of the Furious rolled around, Owen Shaw was last seen helping save Dom’s son so that a tense team-up could make for some perfect character development. Another villainous turn for Shaw will be predictable, and Fast & Furious 9 cannot afford that. The franchise has to do all it can to avoid cheap and disappointing fake-outs like Letty’s passing. Fans are already saying that Han’s promised return has to be more than another trick, so any appearance from Owen Shaw will come under similar scrutiny. But the Fast and Furious filmmakers are more than up to this job of earning fire-forged buddies out of former foes, according to Hobbs and Shaw’s transformation from sworn enemies to unlikely partners.
