Dwayne Johnson is ‘the Iceman’ in latest ‘Fast 8’ on-set photos

The Fast and Furious franchise may be hotter than ever, but parts of the Fast 8 set have literally been cold as ice lately. Low temperatures don’t seem to be slowing Dwayne Johnson down, though. The actor recently showed off two new photos from the set and referred to himself as “The Iceman.”

The most recent photo, posted on social media Tuesday, shows Johnson as his Fast 8 character, Luke Hobbs. In the image, he is standing outside a building with a massive gun. There is snow on the ground, but he doesn’t even seem to notice it, even though he’s wearing just a T-shirt, pants, and fingerless gloves, in spite of the chill.

In Johnson’s words accompanying the post, “The Iceman cometh.” And in case you didn’t pick up on his character’s general badassness, he added, “And I don’t fucketh around.”

Johnson’s other “Iceman” photo was posted on Friday, June 24. “When its [sic] time to save the world in the snow, Hobbs becomes the Abominable Iceman in his ICE RAM,” he wrote.

We didn’t get to see Johnson at the wheel of the ice ram, but it will slikely make for an exciting scene (or scenes). The snowy conditions will add a new element of danger to the roads, especially for a crew that is used to warmer areas. Filming for Fast 8, however, brought the cast — which includes Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, and more — to Iceland.

Here’s why Dune: Part One is still better than Dune: Part Two
Two men stand next to each other in Dune.

After several years of hype and anticipation, Dune is back. Denis Villeneuve's mammoth adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel of the same name has gotten the sequel treatment, and Dune: Part 2 is receiving many of the same plaudits and praise that Part 1 received when it was released in 2021. It grossed over $80 million in its opening weekend, and is on the path to outdo its predecessor.

Now that we have two parts to compare, though, the natural question is which is better. While Part 2 is certainly more action forward, and a lot of the setup from Part 1 is paid off in the sequel, here are some reasons why Part 1 may still be the better movie.
