Out of all the characters currently running around in the Fast and Furious universe, Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw has arguably experienced the most substantial character arc in the shortest amount of time.
Making his debut in the final moments of the sixth film (in which he brutally murdered Han), the character went on to play the villain in Furious 7, and then become a reluctant teammate in Fate of the Furious.
Like Hobbs, Shaw is another character who could potentially stick to spinoffs for the foreseeable future. Statham has the box office clout to carry a film on his own (particularly if he’s alongside someone as big as The Rock), but he’s also a solid ensemble player who could fit in nicely with the main Fast crew.
We do not know which films we will see him in, but he is going to play a significant role in this franchise moving forward.
