Dwayne Johnson introduces 'Fast 8' character

Los Angeles: Actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has shared the first look of his character Luke Hobbs from the upcoming action film “Fast 8”.

Johnson released the image on Instagram and Facebook on Saturday, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“When you strip a man of all he has. All that's important to him, you force him to return to his roots. And sometimes that's a very dangerous and twisted place," Johnson captioned the photograph showing Hobbs wearing jeans and a leather vest.  “If I was going to return for another 'Fast & Furious', I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their blood pumping to see a new version of Hobbs and his 'Daddy's gotta go to work' mentality and set the table in a cool way for where the character goes in the future,” he added. Johnson first appeared in the popular franchise in its fifth instalment “Fast Five”, and has since been a part of it.
