The dynamic between Shaw (Jason Statham) and Han (Sun Kang) has been anything but straightforward in the Fast and Furious saga. Their involvement in some of the franchise’s most explosive moments has kept fans on the edge of their seats. And let’s not forget that initial shock when it was revealed that Shaw was responsible for Han’s apparent demise, blowing up his car in dramatic fashion a few movies back.

However, a new clip from Fast X, shared by Entertainment Weekly, sheds light on their complex relationship. It’s a moment that starts making sense of the teased confrontation from the mid-credits scene in Fast 9 once you have some context.
To recap, it was previously established that Shaw had killed Han. The fiery explosion seemed to seal Han’s fate. But then, in a twist, it was revealed in the 2021 sequel that Han had survived, leaving us all wondering how he pulled off such a miraculous escape. A flashback revealed that Han had plotted with Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) to fake his own death.
With the breakneck pace of the Fast and Furious franchise, Han and Shaw never really had the chance for a heart-to-heart about Han’s survival or to mend their strained relationship. However, in this new clip, it seems that they’re finally going to have that long-awaited showdown. They’re locked inside a warehouse, away from any interference, hinting at a potentially epic confrontation. While there’s a chance they might eventually work together as part of the Toretto family, for now, it’s time for these two to settle their differences with their fists.
What Will Fast X Be About?
After two decades of thrilling audiences worldwide with its trademark blend of humor and over-the-top action, the Fast and Furious franchise is nearing the end of the road. Cipher (Charlize Theron) is returning to square off against the Toretto family once more, and this time, she’s brought formidable backup in the form of Jason Momoa, who plays Dante, a ruthless villain with driving skills that make him a worthy adversary for Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). While the final ride may not occur in this movie, it will undoubtedly set the stage for the sequel that will bring this epic story to its conclusion in 2025.
You can catch a glimpse of the action in the new clip from Fast X on EW’s website before the film roars into theaters on May 19.
