Although he was kept out of the marketing material, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds cameo in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is now public knowledge. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who has played Luke Hobbs since 2011's Fast Five, recently revealed the car he designed for Reynolds that the actor refused to drive.
Reynolds shared a photo of a Camaro with a white and red motif, as well as a giant image of Johnson's face. "It's true. This is my car," he wrote. Johnson retweeted the image and replied, "True story. I personally designed this car for [Ryan Reynolds] to drive in [Hobbs & Shaw], but he refused because he hated the white stripes. I didn’t take it personal, as we’re still drinking buddies."
