Han-troversy: Furious about Fast & Furious 8

Yeah, I am still pissed Han got killed in Fast and Furious 6.  I am also pissed Fast and Furious is doing so well in China, and they killed the only Asian guy who was a cool character.  They got multiple black guys, but they can’t have an Asian guy despite making a ton of money off Asians.  Even since Justin Lin left, they have done squat for Asians and that’s just completely bullshit.

Played by Korean-American actor Sung Kang, Han first appeared and died in The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift.

At the end of Fast & Furious 6, it was revealed that Han was actually murdered by Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham, setting up Fast & Furious 7, which was essentially about Han’s friends going after Shaw.

If you have seen the trailers for the new Fast & Furious 8, you will know that Shaw is now teaming up with our protagonists to go after Vin Diesel’s character, who has gone “rogue”. By the end of the movie, Shaw has more or less become one of the good guys.

What is this? Doesn’t anyone remember that Shaw killed Han? There was no mention of Han at all in the new movie.

Are the other guys just jealous because he was the only one with hair?

It’s not just me who is upset by this. Mr Brown wrote on his blog: “Most of you may know that Jason Statham, Deckard Shaw in the movie, was the enemy of Vin Diesel’s family in Furious 7, right? And you know that he killed Han in Fast & Furious 6, right?

“SO HOW COME HE CAN BE FRIEND-FRIEND WITH THE TEAM IN FURIOUS 8???”

See the all-caps? That’s how furious Mr Brown is.

When Fast & Furious 8 writer Chris Morgan was asked about the Han-troversy in an Entertainment Weekly interview, he said: “There’s still things we get to discover. I think that, over the journey over the next few films, I think anyone who may be having issues about that will get a satisfying resolution.”

Well, there better be or someone’s going to get dragged down an airplane aisle real bad.

I’m just grateful Han wasn’t played by Tilda Swinton.
