First things first, SPOILER ALERT!
Ok, now that we've got that out of the way, Jason Statham -- a man who has spent his fair share of time behind the wheel in movies -- is opening up about the Fast & Furious Six post-credits scene that not only revealed Tokyo Drift's true chronology, but that his character was actually behind Han's death!
While speaking with Empire, Statham broke his silence on the perceived baddie! "I didn't really want to play the villain, but there are certain moments where you think it might be a good time to do that," he says. "I'm not saying I'm the full-blooded ... I'm not going to tell you too much about what I'm going to do in the film, but if it's a good villain, there's obviously some consideration to be made, but there are some really bad villains out there, and I don't want to get myself wet with that sh*t."
"I am excited to be a part of it," Statham added. "It's got some of the best car action I have ever, ever seen."
Statham also set the record straight, telling Empire his character is Ian Shaw, brother of Luke Evan's Owen Shaw. So is he out for revenge or something else entirely? The world will have to wait until July 11, 2014 to find out when Fast & Furious 7 races into theaters!
