After exciting fans with the news Hobbs and Shaw will feature the “biggest showdown in the Fast & Furious franchise,” Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has released a teaser for the films upcoming trailer, which will debut this Friday.

“I’m what ya call a nice cold can of whup ass” ~ Luke Hobbs Get ready for our worldwide @HobbsAndShaw trailer debut this FRIDAY. @jasonstatham @idriselba & the kid stir up trouble & fun in the biggest showdown the Fast & Furious franchise has ever seen. #HobbsAndShaw #Boots2Asses #WorldwideTrailer THIS FRIDAY
But with the good comes the bad, as in an interview with MTV he explained he’ll probably not be in Fast & Furious 9.
“The plan has always been for the Fast and Furious universe to grow and expand. As of now, we’re not in Fast 9 because they’re getting ready to start shooting. But who knows with Fast 10 and down the road, you never know. Because look, at the end of the day, the truth is, there’s unfinished business between Hobbs and Dom. It’s unfinished.”

The Rock sitting out Fast 9 shouldn’t really come as a surprise, considering all that went down on Fast 8 between him and Vin Diesel (quick recap, they don’t like each other) plus all the fuss the spin-off caused.
With the end in sight for the main Fast & Furious films, I would expect the Johnson to turn up and some point down the line. It would be a crying shame if he didn’t, as his introduction on-screen, along others behind it in Justin Lin, James Wan and F. Gary Gray helped change the shape of the franchise.
