One of the best things about the Fast and Furious franchise over the last few sequel’s was the addition of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s, Luke Hobbs. The badass DSS (Diplomatic Security Service) agent was introduced to fans of the franchise back in 2011’s Fast 5.

Fast 8 is currently filming, with The Rock once again returning as Hobbs for his fourth outing as the character. The actor took to Instagram to reveal that he’s going to look a little different this time around.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #HOBBS #F8 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. 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. Maybe it's a spinoff movie. Maybe it's more #FF movies. Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again. Either way, I've had a solid first week of shooting, good to be back with the ohana, good to work again w/ my bud and director F. Gary Gray and our home studio of UNIVERSAL, as always have been the best partners to me and my #SevenBucksProds team. Most importantly… you guys around the world will really dig this new version of the role, 'cause as we always say, disrupters dent the universe. #Hobbs #TwistedRoots #1Disrupter #1Savage #F8

His appearance has never really changed over the course of the last few films, so it’s cool they’ve decided to give him a revamp. He suits the whole biker look. But what’s most interesting is the caption on the post, it seems Hobbs will be coming into this film a broken man, “When you strip a man of all he has,” what has he been stripped of? Has something happened to his daughter? The Rock also hinted about what lies ahead for his characters future.
