After The F9 poster, the Fast & Furious 9 trailer was recently released and it set the internet alight. If there’s one franchise which can give the MCU a run for their money then it’s The Fast & Furious franchise. But one of the series stars actually thinks that their crew could give the Avengers a run for their money. Check out the Fast and Furious 9 trailer below:

Now, Tyrese Gibson has been in a lot of Fast and Furious movies. He has seen the franchise begin as pretty normal car movies and then morph into a superstar laden action bonanza. But can they hold their own in front of super soliders and literal gods? Tyrese thinks that they can. While talking to Comicbook.com at the Fast & Furious 9 event down in Miami, he said about the hypothetical show down between the Fast crew and The Avengers that:

“I think we could, I was just on with Robert Downey Jr. two days ago and I told him that I got special powers in this movie and we need to come see him. Nah, I’m just playing, but I think it’s all entertainment man. You know? I think if you buy a bucket of popcorn, especially large with the extra butter, and you don’t finish your popcorn by the end of the movie, you were not entertained”.

Before the movie’s release, Gibson wrote a very thoughtful letter on the anniversary of Paul Walker’s passing. After all no one can forget Walker’s contribution to the franchise or his tragic death. He wrote back in December that:

“Today 6 years ago I got the worst phone call I’ve ever gotten in my life….. Roland your best man and our brother….. I guess that’s why I’ve slept the day away cause I just want this particular day to go away…… today I choose to remember your hugs, today I choose to remember your smile, today I choose to remember the distinct sound of your laugh…. today I choose to remember that we shared too many stories of how we loved our daughters… Today I choose to tell you that we thought about you everyday on the set of Fast9 and when we were tired YOU pulled us UP….. Nothing is or will ever be the same without you……. REST IN HEAVEN P!!!! Thank you for coming to our planet and creating the shift!!!!!!!!”

Paul Walker’s brother Brian did want to come on to the franchise as the late star but no one really liked that idea.
