When action star Jason Statham joins the Fast & Furious franchise in the role of the villain Deckard Shaw, one of the first things he did to prove he wasn’t playing was kill the favorite character Han Seoul-Oh, played by Sung KangThe plot point sparked an unprecedented level of outrage from fans, especially when Shaw came back into the franchise as one of the good guys.
After years of an online #JusticeForHan campaign, Han is making his dramatic return in the upcoming Fast & Furious 9. In an interview with Empire, Sung Kang expressed his gratitude for how much fans cared about his character.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, this whole Fast & Furious journey. How do you get killed multiple times and keep coming back? Like come on. This is crazy …” The whole #JusticeForHan thing – it got me thinking, ‘Wow, there are actually people who appreciate the work I’ve done as an actor. In my own Hollywood battle as an Asian-American, in your darkest hours, you say, “Wow, there are actually people from all over the world who appreciate what I’ve done with that character.” ”
So far no explanation has been given as to why or how Han is able to come back from the dead. But given the on-again-off-again relationship that the Fast & Furious franchise with real-world logic, it should be easy to explain Han’s return. In any case, what fans want to see is Han reappear on the screen as a badass with the rest of Dominic Toretto’s team of protagonists, not long and involved explanations of his death and resurrection.
The biggest question fans have regarding Han’s return is whether the movie will appeal to the elephant in the room, the fact that Han’s killer Deckard Shaw is now an unofficial member of Dom’s group. In a previous interview, filmmaker Justin Lin described the Fast & Furious franchise after directing several installments before returning for it F9, hinted that a major reason for his return was to ensure true justice for Han.
“Han means so much to me because he was a character for Fast & Furious. Someone asked me about Han en [Deckard] Shaw. I was like, ‘Wait, what? Will Shaw be at the grill in 8 hours? ‘ [laughs] Really, I was so confused. One of the main reasons for coming back was that I felt we needed to correct something. “
How Han will finally get justice against Shaw remains to be seen. Han is unlikely to kill the final character, but a minor fight scene seems warranted at the very least, possibly along with a heartfelt apology from Shaw before the two team up to tackle the movie’s new villain.
Directed by Justin Lin, F9 stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang, starring Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Cardi B. The film will hit theaters on June 25, 2021 This news comes from Empire Online.
