In 2013, Paul Walker died in a car accident. In the seventh Fast and Furious movie, the Hollywood actor was duly adopted. As an insider wants to have heard, we could not have seen him for the last time. In Fast And Furious 9, Paul Walker's Brian could be there again. After the tragic accidental death of Paul Walker, the Fast and Furious team faced some problems. On the one hand, of course, you wanted to honor the Brian O'Conner actor. On the other hand, Fast And Furious 7 had to be completed. With the support of Walker's brothers Cody and Caleb and plenty of computer animation, they finally bid farewell to the actor in touching final scenes.
Brian did not die, but retired only to live a quiet life with his family. A return of the character would be theoretically possible. And CGI technology, which brings actors to life, is producing more and more impressive results. Soon, even a new movie with an animated James Dean will be released.
In Fast And Furious 8, it was not possible to get Brian back into the team. After all, they had just said goodbye to him. For part 9, a comeback would have a greater impact. Insider and movie blogger Daniel Richtman has recently learned that director and franchise veteran Justin Lin is actually planning to bring Brian O'Conner back in Fast & Furious 9. On Twitter he shared the controversial news:
It's been long enough. They are bringing Paul Walker's character, Brian, to FF9. https://t.co/320dprmC1S

Richtman himself does not know what to make of it. Meanwhile, the answers of many Fast and Furious fans are pretty clear. For example, Twitter user itsjustanx considers Brian's return tasteless and extremely unnecessary. With a few exceptions, the rest of the users do not care about the idea.
Whether Brian actually shows up in the next movie remains to be seen. A short appearance in the tenth part but we could imagine even more, after all, it is the last movie in the series. A last meeting with all members of Dom and his fast family would be quite conceivable. But first you will see Fast And Furious 9 when it hits theaters on the 21st of May.
