John Cena, the latest addition to the Fast and Furious’ team, reveals that the upcoming ninth installment will address several unanswered questions. Well, for starters, after seeing the trailer, one of the biggest questions is how Han survived?
In Fast and Furious 6, fans witnessed Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham) killing Han. However, to everyone’s surprise, Han is alive, so how he survived and what he has been doing for all this time, and several other questions like these need a proper explanation. Apart from that, Jakob’s history with Dom and the severity of the underlying issue that motivated Jakob to kill Dom needs to be explored.
