'Fast and Furious 9' Post-Credits: Is There an After-Credits Scene?

Fast and Furious is back with its ninth instalment, or its 12th if you include the two short films and spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw. The ninth movie has cameos to boot from previous films, and some of those returning characters cause quite a stir.

For those attending the early screenings of the movie, knowing whether to wait until the credits roll is of vital importance. The following contains some massive spoilers for the movie, so to avoid those, look away now.

Is There an After Credit Scene in F9?

There is a mid-credits scene in Fast and Furious 9, appearing before the main credits roll, and after the graphic credits have concluded.

In that scene two adversaries are brought back together, one of whom did not appear in the movie itself.

Before explaining the scene, it is important to consider some of the events of Fast and Furious 9 and before, to put it in context.

In Fast and Furious 9, Han (played by Sung Kang) returns to the film, after the events of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift showed his death.

During the film he died when his car exploded, and Sean (Lucas Black) could not save him in time.

In the post-credits sequence of Fast and Furious 6, Han's death is revisited, and a mysterious man is shown to be the other driver in the crash, and drops Dom Toretto's (Vin Diesel) cross by Han, as a warning about his intentions.

This man was Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) who went on to be an adversary of the family in Furious 7, where he attempted to avenge his brother, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) who the gang targeted in Fast and Furious 6.

However, in F9: The Fast Saga, it is revealed that Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) actually organised Han's death, in order to help him escape from those looking for him and his new protege, Elle (Anna Sawai.)

One of Mr. Nobody's agents had gone rogue, and wanted to steal Project Aries, which can hack into any computer weapon system.

Elle was the key to activating Aries, and Han was her guardian after the deaths of her parents.

In the end, it is revealed that agent is Jakob Toretto (John Cena) Dom's brother, who left after inadvertently killing their father in a race.

After all of this, and the retrieval of Project Aries, Han still has some questions which he needs answered from Deckard.

As a result, when the mid-credits scene arrives, we find Deckard training with an oddly-shaped punching bag.

He unzips it to reveal he is beating a man for information by enclosing him in his bag, but his training is interrupted when there is a knock at the door.

Deckard opens the door to Han, who is standing there, looking for answers and possibly revenge.

It is unclear how this will go, as Mr Nobody's involvement suggests this was meant to happen, however clearly there is a score which needs to be settled.

Given Variety reported a tenth movie was in the works before the various delays to this film, hopefully that will bring everyone back together in the franchise, and perhaps explain what really happened in Tokyo.

F9: The Fast Saga is out in movie theaters on June 25.
