Fast and Furious 8 reveals first look at Charlize Theron's character

Posted on

Remember how Charlize Theron joined an explosive franchise filled with fast cars and guns last year? Well, she’s doing it again. It was revealed last month that the Mad Max: Fury Road star is staying behind the wheel for the upcoming eighth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, and now fans finally get their first look at her character.

Billed as the movie’s villain, the shot of Theron shared via the franchise’s Twitter account Friday morning show the star walking into a gun shop in a ponytail and a Metallica T-shirt.

After the photo was released, Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel shared some more details about Theron’s character in a Facebook post: her name is Cipher and she will force Dom “in to a place we have not seen,” also teasing that his scenes with her have produced “some of the most emotionally arduous scenes in the franchise.”

Diesel went on to reveal that he had wanted Theron to join the franchise when Fast 6 was filming in 2012, but it didn’t work out at that time.

Fast 8 rolls into theaters April 14, 2017.
