Hobbs and Shaw is a jam-packed action movie, just over the top enough to be a total pop-corn guzzler to watch.

The movie follows the notorious frenemies Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), forced to team up again to defeat baddie Brixton Lore (Idris Elba) from destroying the world.

Before we get into the post-credits scenes, yes scenes, be forewarned there are spoilers ahead for Fast & Furious: Hobbs and Shaw.


Seriously, stop reading now if you want to avoid major spoilers.

Post-credits scene one

One crux of the movie is the tense relationship between Deckard Shaw and his sister Hattie (Vanessa Kirby). One of the only reasons Shaw takes on the job in the film is to protect her.

This is all at the behest of his mom, Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren) who is currently behind bars but angling to break out of prison. She laments the days when they were a close knit family.

In the first post-credits scene, Magdalene comes out to meet her visitors to see both Deckard and Hattie together.

They pass her a birthday cake, in which is hidden her means of escape. Will we see her in the sequel? Probably.

Post-credits scene two

Though Luke Hobbs had promised at the end of The Fate of the Furious he would no longer be doing the US government’s bidding, Hobbs and Shaw saw him renege on that promise to save the world and engage in some witty bantz along the way.

But by the end, we had a feeling that Hobbs once again was putting family first. Until he got a very disconcerting phone call.

Ryan Reynolds had a surprise cameo as Hobbs’ CIA handler, Agent Lock. He reprises the role in the first post-credits scene to update Hobbs on how the whole battling-this-weaponised-virus is going. Not well.

Post-credits scene three

You read that right, there are three scenes which take place throughout the credits. The final one is the real set-up for another Hobbs and Shaw sequel.

Ryan Reynolds calls Hobbs back, but this time he’s short of breath and clutching his hand over his bloody stomach. He tells Hobbs he’s been shot. As he details what went on, he slowly comes to realise that he isn’t bleeding after all. It turns out he’s covered in someone else’s blood! Ha ha.

But what’s most exciting about all of these post-credits scenes is what they reveal about the future Hobbs and Shaw movies.

There you have it, from the metaphorical horse’s mouth. Somewhere in these scenes the new team for Hobbs and Shaw 2 are featured. Our money is on Magdalene Shaw and Ryan Reynolds’ Agent Lock having bigger roles in future films.

Fast, & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw will be released on August 1 in the UK and August 2 in the US.
