We've heard rumors of action and heist star Jason Statham joining the "Fast and Furious" franchise for some time. Now it looks like we may have just received the confirmation that it could definitely be true, from someone that should know.

Actress Michelle Rodriguez, who portrays Letty Ortiz in the franchise, leaked the news. Perhaps she wasn't aware it was still a secret or maybe she was just caught up in the excitement of promoting "Fast and Furious 6", but the lady does sound like she knows what she's talking about.

Rodriguez stated, "Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, when you see these guys in a room you know they belong together [...] You can see in their eyes that they have gone through a lot [...] I applaud Universal for getting [Statham] on-board!".

Statham has been listed in IMDB on the film's page as playing Ian Shaw, the brother of Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), the "Fast and Furious 6" villain. The franchise has been known to build teasers in their credits, the way that Marvel films have so successfully done. The belief is that Statham will first appear in the credits of the 6th chapter, to lead into his larger involvement in the 7th.

Justin Lin's "Fast and Furious 6" hits AMC Theatres on May 24th. "Fast and Furious 7" will hit July 11th 2014, with James Wan directing.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
