First Wonder Woman Poster Spotted At Licensing Expo 2016

21 June 2016 7:37 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Justice League may be all the rage today, but before we get to that, Warner Bros. has another DC film lined up for a summer 2017 release - Wonder Woman! Despite limited screen time in her debut film, the critically panned Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, star Gal Gadot (Fast Five) managed to leave her mark as Diana Prince and as Wonder Woman and left fans clamoring for more. Lucky for them, the wait is really not all that long as after David Ayer's Suicide Squad this August, Wonder Woman will be the next DC Films adventure to grace your local silver screen. Just moments ago, the first poster for the Patty Jenkins-directed film was spotted at the Licensing Expo 2016, which is currently taking place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Dwayne Johnson Looks Extra Tough in New 'Fast 8' Photo, Confirms 'Doc Savage'

31 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Recently, Dwayne Johnson completed production of a big-screen version of Baywatch, due in theaters on May 19, 2017, and he's already moved on to his next role. It's a familiar character, but Johnson sounds determined to give him a different spin, as evidenced in a new photo (above). Introduced in Fast Five back in 2011, Luke Hobbs was a Diplomatic Secret Service agent who was tasked with tracking down the heroes portrayed by Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. He returned in Fast & Furious 6 and recruited the team to help him take down a villain. In Furious 7, Hobbs has a smaller part, though he is featured in a great action sequence against Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). In Fast 8, now in production, Hobbs will evidently be presented in a new light. Johnson shared the first...

'Furious 8': First Look at Dwayne Johnson's Hobbs

30 May 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Fast & Furious franchise was already moving on up before the Rock's involvement. Yes, it had its relatively low-key beginnings, as well as its jump off the deep end with The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, but with the fourth film in the entry, Fast & Furious, the series took a welcome turn into the more ridiculous side of things, where it full-on embraced its departure from its origins.

However, it wasn't until Fast Five that the series took off to even greater heights, and perhaps the introduction of The Rock's character, Hobbs, was partially responsible for that. Nowadays, Dwayne Johnson is consider to be franchise adrenaline, and should a film series include him, there's a good chance it'll have at least some sort of success. This was definitely the case with Fast Five, which was the first film in the series to break half a billion at the worldwide box office, »

Dwayne Johnson Teases Fast & Furious 8 Look

29 May 2016 9:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dwayne Johnson is one of the more social media-savvy stars out there, and as the actor prepares to delve into filming on Fast & Furious 8 (which has been underway for some time now, under the watchful eye of Straight Outta Compton helmer F. Gary Gray), he’s teasing the gritty new look his breakout character, agent Luke Hobbs.

Hobbs, who was first introduced as an adversary in Fast Five before becoming an ally of Dom Toretto’s “family” of racing junkies in Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7, doesn’t appear to be in great shape for this upcoming outing. Previous installments have shown audiences that he has a daughter, for whom he cares for immensely, and a love interest in Elsa Pataky’s Elena Neves, so there are certainly a few pieces in play that could send Hobbs down a dark and dangerous path.

Here’s Johnson’s post, in »

Dwayne Johnson Reveals Hobbs' New Look in Fast and Furious 8

28 May 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Fast and Furious 8 jumped from shooting exteriors in Cuba to a locked down set where most of the main actors reunited for photos and a video. Today, we get our first real look at star Dwayne Johnson, who returns to reprise his role as Hobbs. But as you can tell from this post on his personal Instagram, the man looks a lot different. And there is a reason for that. The WWE Superstar turned action icon had this to say about returning for his Agent character.

"When you strip a man of all he has. All that's important to him. You force him to return to his roots...And sometimes that's a very dangerous and twisted place. If I was going to return for another Fast & Furious I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their »

Johnson Reveals More About His "Fast 8" Role

28 May 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

When it comes to curating his social media presence, several key cast members of the "Fast and the Furious" franchise are masters at the art. A serious peer to Vin Diesel and his massive amount of followers is none other than Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson himself who, even with his insanely busy scheduling, still takes time out to offer regular posts for fans.

His posting today for the Memorial Day holiday weekend offers not just a first photo but some new insight into where his character of government bounty hunting agent Luke Hobbs is when we catch up with him in the new film.

We do know his role here will be arguably his biggest in the franchise since his first turn in "Fast Five," and it seems in this Hobbs has fallen on hard times as the villain Cipher (Charlize Theron) basically has everything important to him stripped away. »

The Rock's "Furious" Character Spin-Off Talk

25 May 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Dwayne Johnson's schedule looks pretty busy for the next few years - he recently wrapped "Baywatch" and the second season of HBO's "Ballers," he's currently at work on "Fast and Furious 8," and already has numerous other projects in the works including "Jumanji," "Shazam," "San Andreas 2," "Rampage," "Doc Savage" and more.

Now it looks like the actor may add another film to his slate - a "Fast & Furious" spinoff centering on his character Luke Hobbs. Hobbs, who joined the franchise in 2011's "Fast Five," has quickly become a franchise favorite.

Johnson's producing partner Hiram Garcia spoke with ComicBook.com this week and says that there have always been talks about a Hobbs spinoff, but the main challenge to doing it has been scheduling:

"I think there's always been conversations for that. The scheduling of it all is a challenge but there are always talks about a potential spinoff movie »

‘The Fast and the Furious’ Is Getting a 15th Anniversary Re-Release in Theaters

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 15 years since The Fast and the Furious hit theaters. At one time, it felt like the franchise might run out of gas, but once Dwayne Johnson arrived on the scene to help beef up the action in Fast Five, the game changed. Since then, the franchise realizes […]

'Furious 8': Hiram Garcia Talks Hobbs' Return and Potential Spinoff Film

25 May 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Fast & Furious franchise may have been perfectly fine without Dwayne the Rock Johnson, but his presence in Fast Five certainly seemed to have been the extra shot of adrenaline the franchise needed to reach new heights. The ridiculousness of the Rock's character, Hobbs, only got more ridiculous as time went on, and by Furious 7, he was wielding a massive gatling gun mere weeks after having been involved in a near-fatal incident.

The one unfortunate thing with Furious 7, however, was how little screen time Hobbs ultimately had. Due to the scheduling conflicts, they had to make do with the few weeks he had. But can we expect the character to grow more and more marginal as time goes on? It doesn't look like it.

According to an interview with Comicbook.com, Furious 7's consulting producer Hiram Garcia (who will also be involved in Furious 8 to some capacity »

Is Dwayne Johnson's Hobbs Getting a Fast and Furious Spinoff?

25 May 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dwayne Johnson has already had an extremely busy year, even though we aren't even half-way through 2016 yet. The actor has finished work on Season 2 of his HBO series Ballers and recently wrapped on Baywatch, which is set to hit theaters next May. Now he's getting ready to move over to Fast and Furious 8, which has already started shooting. It seems the actor could be adding another project to his growing slate in the near future, with new talk of a Fast & Furious spinoff centering on his character, Hobbs.

Dwayne Johnson joined the beloved franchise as Hobbs in 2011's Fast Five, and he has quickly become a franchise favorite, reprising his role in 2013's Fast & Furious 6 and last year's Furious 7. During an interview with ComicBook.com, the actor's producing partner Hiram Garcia teased that there have always been talks about a Hobbs spinoff, but scheduling has become a challenge. »

First Look at Charlize Theron in 'Furious 8'!

20 May 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A couple months back, it was reported that Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron would be boarding the long-running Fast & Furious franchise. Her role in the film is currently unknown, but Universal was kind enough to give us a first look at the acting vet in the film.

Take a look at the photo below!

Looks like she fits right in with the look and tone of the film.

Also, the official Fast & Furious YouTube channel has been releasing some set videos, so if those interest you, be sure to check them out below!

In many ways, the Fast & Furious franchise is like the little engine that could. It started off as a relatively low-key -- yet popular -- franchise. It had a couple of stumbling points along the way, but as soon as it embraced its ridiculousness, it really took off in a big way. Fast Five brought in the Rock, »

Vin Diesel Wants Justin Lin To Direct The Final ‘Fast & Furious’ Film

Diesel Wants Justin Lin Back For "Fast 10"

19 May 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though Rob Cohen started the franchise with the first film and various helmers have handled the numerous entries over the years, no filmmaker is more synonymous with the "Fast and Furious" franchise than Justin Lin.

Having helmed the third through sixth of the films, including the critically acclaimed apex of the series in "Fast Five," Lin sat both the seventh and currently in production eighth film of the series out to work on other projects.

Universal Pictures has already announced plans for a ninth and tenth film in the series to be released in 2019 and 2021 respectively, with that tenth film is set to serve as the finale for the main story of the franchise and likely Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto character. Spinoffs and prequels are planned, but 'Fast 10' is the effective being seen as the "end" of the main thrust of the series.
