Fast & Furious 9 will be coming to the cinemas this May. The movie, already has a huge fan base and the trailer has acted as oil in the fire. The trailer of the movie indicates that Brian O’Conner might be seen in Fast and Furious 9.
The audience and the fans picked up all the Easter eggs that were dropped by the directors. If you are new to the Fast & Furious world, welcome because we have some facts that might amaze you! The trailer of the movie showcases sideway car stunts and all the typical Fast & Furious things. You might be thinking if that is what the trailer showed, why everybody is hyping over Brain O’Conner?
The answer is “Nissan Skyline”. Yes! you read it right. Cars appearing is a pretty normal thing in Fast & Furious. But Nissan Skyline is not just a car! Only one character in the entire series is seen driving the Nissan Skyline; and that is: Brian O’Conner.
Will Brian O’Conner Make a Return?
Brian O’Conner is one of the prominent characters in the Fast & Furious franchise. The character was placed by Paul Walker. But after the tragic demise of the actor in 2013, James Wan’s Furious 7 retooled to write off the character.
The whole world was set aback by the tragic news. The franchise then decided not to give him a hard and sad farewell permanently. Brian retired from Dom and the team’s operations to live his life with his wife and son. This way the makers always kept a hope that the character might make a return someday. Although, it will be difficult to see Brian without Paul Walker.
With the appearance of his favorite car in the trailer, is the movie trying to establish the fact that Brian O’Conner is coming back. However, this is not the first time the franchise will be hinting to bring back the character.
Back in August 2019, Paul Walker’s brother Cody stepped in with his brother Caleb to finish the shoot of Fast & Furious 7. “You know, there’s a lot of things that are said about the franchise, there’s a lot of rumors going around. I think anything is possible and we’ll see what the future has in store,” he explained.
However, with the Nissan Skyline in the trailer, we are hoping and wishing that Brian O’Conner will make a surprise return. Also, if it is even Brian driving the car in the trailer, it might be just for a cameo. Nobody (even the makers) would want to spoil Paul’s legacy in any way possible.
Also, there might be a different explanation for Nissan Skyline’s appearance. There is a slight possibility that it is Mia Toretto who is driving the car. She might be back to help Dom with the new threat they are facing.
The fans have been giving mixed reactions to the appearance of Nissan Skyline. A Twitter user, Daniel Richtman shared, “Just got a new casting grid for something and with it some big news that is sure to be controversial. Not sure how I feel about it myself but we’ll see“. He also added, “they are bringing back Paul Walker’s character, Brian, to FF9“.
Another fan also tweeted, “No, Paul’s character Brian had a beautiful sendoff that doesn’t need to be used to gain more money from. It gave us a sense of closure and finality to his and Jordana’s respective characters.”
Watch the trailer for yourself and give proper attention to all the Easter Eggs.
We all are very excited for the release of the new movies. Let us know in the comment section what you think about the cameo of Paul Walker and the return of Brian O’Conner.
