Idris Elba was recently confirmed as the central villain in Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s Fast and Furious spinoff, called Hobbs and Shaw. Thanks to Johnson’s Instagram, now we have a first look at the character in a heavily armoured getup alongside three armed guards.

The caption introduced Elba, saying “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. 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 name: BRIXTON.
The record: UNDEFEATED.
The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS. “

Take a look at the post below. Hobbs and Shaw will release in summer 2019.
