Hobbs & Shaw marked the first-ever spin-off movie from the successful Fast & Furious franchise. Starring The Rock as Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw, Hobbs & Shaw saw Idris Elba's character Brixton Lore as the main villain. However, Lore was just a pawn in a bigger game spearheaded by Eteon. Eteon, as seen in Hobbs & Shaw is a terrorist organisation under the ruse of a technology company who want to improve the human race.

When we reach the end of the film, we are informed that the head of Eteon is an old acquaintance of Hobbs. Immediately, fan theories went rife over who could be the head of Eteon. Judging by the mid-credits scene, many assume that Ryan Reynold's character CIA Agent Locke could be the frontrunner for the position. Some also theorise that it's Hobb's dad, who was mentioned in Hobbs & Shaw. It was Luke who turned his father in to the authorities after his 'jobs' took a dangerous turn and put his as well as his brother, Jonah's life in danger.

Another possible prospect for the head of Eteon is John Cena, who is the latest entrant in The Fast & The Furious franchise. The wrestler and actor will star alongside Vin Diesel in Fast & Furious 9, but there is no confirmation on which character he will essay. The modulated voice used in Hobbs & Shaw is eerily familiar to that of the Cenation leader.

While Charlize Theron is back as Cipher in Fast & Furious 9, it won't surprise us if she teams with Cena and that the latter is the head of Eteon.
