'With Fast & Furious 9 currently filming ahead of its 2020 release, Paul Walker's brother Cody hasn't ruled out a return for Brian O'Conner.
Following Paul Walker's tragic death, his brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to finish his filming on Fast & Furious 7, which appeared to complete Brian's story. However, Cody recently revealed that you can't rule anything out.
"You know, there's a lot of things that are said about the franchise, there's a lot of rumours going around. I think anything is possible and we'll see what the future has in store," he explained.
However, we feel that any return for Brian O'Conner should not happen in Fast & Furious 9or 10 – and it shouldn't really be something Fast & Furious fans want either.
Back in 2013, director James Wan and the cast of Fast & Furious 7 were in an unthinkable position. Paul Walker had sadly died in car accident during a Thanksgiving break in filming, with Universal suspending production on the movie to work out what to do next.
The solution was for Paul's brothers Cody and Caleb to step in to film the action scenes that he hadn't completed before his untimely death.
Weta Digital worked on the visual effects to complete his role in the movie, using a computer-generated face in 260 shots, with 90 shots coming from previous footage or outtakes from the series.
Yes, some of the digital effects are noticeable, but the most important thing was the way that Wan, along with writer Chris Morgan, managed to end Brian O'Conner's Fast & Furious journey.
The final scenes of Fast & Furious 7 see Brian decide to retire, with Dom leaving him on the beach with his family without saying bye. "It's never goodbye," Dom says, but Brian catches up with him on the road.
Cue a montage of Dom and Brian throughout the series as Dom says in voiceover: "I used to say I live my life a quarter-mile at a time, and I think that's why we were brothers, because you did too.
"No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter-mile away or halfway across the world, you'll always be with me and you'll always be my brother." '

' “I love ‘justice for Han,’” Morgan tells EW, adding that Han is very important to him. “Sung Kang is a great friend, and Han is a character that I adore. I would say that the super-arc for Deckard Shaw is going to be one of the most interesting, cool, rewarding character arcs in the franchise. Justice for Han is owed. It’s something we have discussed for a very long time and want to give the right due to. I think the audience will be satisfied and should know it’s coming. There’s a line in Hobbs & Shaw that is right before the battle in Samoa where Shaw says to his sister, ‘There’s things I’ve done that I have to make amends for.’ That line was specifically written and put in there just to let everyone know that he is talking about Han — it is on his mind. It tortures him, and he’s going to get to it.”Despite Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw being fully positioned as a hero in Hobbs & Shaw, screenwriter Chris Morgan promises that the Fast & Furious franchise won’t forget his original sin: killing our beloved Han.
The third film in the franchise, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, has retroactively become crucial to the series, and much of that is due to the introduction of Sung Kang’s Han. Although the character died in the film, Han was such a favorite of the audience and creative team that subsequent films were set prior to those events so that he could stick around. But the timeline finally caught up to Tokyo Drift at the end of Fast & Furious 6. As we once again saw Han struck by a random car during a chase, it was revealed that this was no accident — it was Shaw seeking revenge on behalf of his brother, Owen (Luke Evans). Marking Statham’s first appearance in the franchise, the scene set him up as the antagonist in Furious 7, before he was reluctantly forced to become part of the team in The Fate of the Furious, and eventually leading to his pairing with Dwayne Johnson in Hobbs & Shaw.
The decision to make Shaw a member of the Fast Family has led many fans to call for “justice for Han,” and Morgan, the writer behind every Fastmovie since Tokyo Drift, wants them to know it’s coming.' #justiceforhan
