Speaking recently to the L.A. Times, The Fate of the Furious screenwriter teased Han’s possible return to the franchise. After Han (Sung Kang) was killed by Deckard Shaw in the sixth installment, many fans were appalled that Shaw, played by Jason Statham, could be forgiven so easily and be allowed access to the team. And so a Justice for Han hashtag emerged on Twitter.
Here’s what the franchise’s screenwriter, Chris Morgan, had to say in regards to Justice for Han:
“Justice for Han. I think you’ll learn a lot more about it, and I don’t know if that hashtag will be the appropriate one to put on it down the road. But I can tell you this: We will definitely be talking more about Han.”
So does this mean we’ll be seeing Han return to the franchise, which have two more movies in the works? Morgan doesn’t confirm it (it’s too early for that), but he does explain the thought process behind the route they took with Deckard.
“Look, I am literally the biggest Han/Sung Kang fan in the world. But I would say this. From the initial conceit of Deckard, I’ve never really thought of him as a bad guy. He was definitely against our team but he’s a guy with a code who loves his family.”
Jason Statham also understands the love for Han and he teases that perhaps we don’t know the whole story quite yet.
“That whole episode has not fully detailed exactly what happened. I’m not going to say anything more than that! But [writer-producer Chris Morgan] likes to annoy the fans and please the fans and get all these angry protests. So, more to come.”
Fast and Furious 9 won’t be out for another couple of years, but it’s probably safe to say that Han will more than likely be a part of the ninth and tenth films. What do you think? Would you love to see Han come back? How do you think they’d explain his “death”? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
