Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson took to his Instagram to share with his followers some great news — Idris Elba will be joining some of the fast and furious crew in the upcoming spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw.

Johnson revealed that Elba will be playing the villain, “He’s a baaaaaad man. Welcoming my dude @idriselba with tattooed and open arms to our #HobbsAndShaw Fast and Furious spin-off movie. Every hero’s only as good as their villain. Cue the music… let’s dance,” he said on Twitter.


I promised we were going to make this Fast and Furious spin off awesome and grow our franchise properly. He’s a bad man (legit bad ass). I better toughen up 👀😉#HobbsAndShaw,” Dwayne added in another Tweet.

The new spin-off will be directed by Deadpool 2’s David Leitch. The spin-off is exciting for fans, but it did not sit well with Johnson’s co-star Tyrese Gibson, who back in October accused Dwayne for causing a delay in the release of Fast and Furious 9 to push up the release on the new spin-off. “He’s on twitter and won’t hit my cell  The Rock this is the people’s champ? #ShawHobbsEpicFailure you came here just to break up the fast family,” Gibson ranted.
