Dwayne Johnson Teases Furious Future With First In-Character Pic From ‘Fast 8’

Is the Fast & Furious series getting a spinoff? Maybe, maybe not but the possibility has been bandied about ever since Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s breakout character DSS Agent Luke Hobbs was introduced in 2011’s Fast 5. Now Johnson has obliquely weighed in on the possibility himself in a post to his Instagram feed showing off the Fast 8 version of Agent Hobbs. “If I was going to return for another FAST & FURIOUS I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way…
