“It’s a scene in its own context as we just go from something really dark,” he says of the ending of the movie. “The moment you film Dwayne Johnson, in any shape or form, you recognize it’s Dwayne Johnson, so I was like, ‘How can I change the tone?’ Hide it in the shadows, put a mask on, and use lights and flares so you’re distracted by the filmmaking. So, you’re not focusing on who the camera is filming and what the camera is pointed at. That was the idea.”

All of the directors’ hard work has indeed paid off as fans are more than excited for the rumored spin-off which includes their beloved character Luke Hobbs aka Dwayne Johnson.
