The new trailer for the Fast & Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw, already has fans racing, but fans of the high speed franchise are also seeking answers in regards to fan-favorite character Han.
Han, you’ll recall, was killed by Shaw during the events of Tokyo Drift, the third film in the franchise. This wasn’t revealed until the events of Furious 7, but this has remained with fans since then. With the new trailer now starting the gas again in the Fast & Furious, fans are seeking, as they’ve termed it, #JusticeForHan. After all, Han’s killer still walks a free man, so to speak, so what gives? Observe some of the fan reactions below:

Rock was def the antagonist…i wouldn't say he was the villain…but you are right he was against the group. Shaw was a flat out villain. I mean he killed Han, then spent a whole movie trying to kill everyone else & then everyone forgot that..maybe i'm bitter lol #JusticeForHan

Hobbs & Shaw looks like a lot of fun but I just don’t know if I’ll be able to get over The Rock working with the man who killed Han. #JusticeForHan

It is indeed curious to see that Han’s killing doesn’t seem to be a topic of discussion, but at the same time, there appear to be more pressing things to attend to in the Fast & Furious spin-off film. Still, though, do you believe that the death of Han should be addressed in Hobbs & Shaw? Does it matter to you at this point? Then again, this is just the first trailer, so it’s entirely possible that the events of previous Fast & Furious films, such as Han in Tokyo Drift, could be addressed in the movie.
