These are exciting days for actress Eiza Gonzalez! Last year she was in Edgar Wright’s fantastic Baby Driver and will be featured in both Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen and Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel in the coming months. Gonzalez also recently joined the cast of Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong. She hasn’t landed a role in one of the big superhero cinematic universes (yet), but she’s landed yet another promising role in a big blockbuster franchise!
Gonzalez has reportedly landed a role in next year’s Hobbs and Shaw– a new spinoff from the Fast & Furious franchise focusing on the titular characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. Variety adds that “the role was a last-minute addition, and sources say execs favored Gonzalez, but scheduling had to be worked out with Legendary’s “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which features Gonzalez and is also about to begin shooting.”
Needless to say, I’m excited to learn more about Gonzalez’s role in the film. Especially considering that it’s apparently a last minute addition, which reminds me a bit of James Wan’s story awhile back on how the Nun was a late addition to The Conjuring 2. Not to mention how Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby are both going to feature in Hobbs and Shaw as well. All in all, this film seems to have a promising core cast of actors involved, so we’ll see how things turn out!
