Fast and Furious franchise producer Chris Morgan urged fans who are waiting to see “Justice for Han” to ‘hold on’ a while longer.
Sung Kang’s Han Lue was introduced to the Fast and Furious franchise in the third film installment, Tokyo Drift, and while his character was killed in the film, the fan-favorite returned for subsequent entries set before his untimely demise. However, Fast and Furious fans later learned the collision that killed Han was a target hit by Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw, who served as the main antagonist in the seventh film.
While Deckard Shaw was eventually defeated, the villain was forced to become an ally to the Fast and Furious heroes and even co-starred as one of the protagonists in the spin-off Hobbs and Shaw. Of course, fans of Han have not been thrilled the heroes of the Fast and Furious franchise becoming friendly with the man who killed their friend and they have called on the film series to deliver “Justice for Han” ever since. During an interview with ComicBook.com, franchise producer Chris Morgan acknowledged that “Justice for Han” is a story arc that needs to be addressed and advised to wait a little longer to see how that might unfold:
“Well the only thing I’ll say about that is. Listen, I came in on Tokyo Drift. I’m a huge fan of that character, and Sung Kang. And you’re right, we’ve been… Over the course of the films, there’s a big arc, and a debt that’s owed. And I would just say for an audience, everybody involved in the films, loves all of our characters. We’re aware of all the character arcs, and what needs to get paid and where we’re going. And I would just say to an audience, just wait. Just hold on. Not a real comment beyond that, other than, we love the characters just like you do.”
