Here’s your first look at Charlize Theron in Fast 8

Tougher than a military

A month after Charlize Theron officially signed onto Fast 8, the first image of her in the movie has been released.

Tweeted out from the movie's account this morning, the photo features Theron front and center, rocking a Metallica tee. The tweet doesn't provide too much information about Theron's character, but does confirm her name is Cipher. It also adds that even though the crew has taken on "military, mercenaries & more," this will be an entirely new challenge.

Universal pictures confirmed in April that Theron would play the newest villain in the franchise. Whether or not she's somehow tied to Jason Statham's character, Deckard Shaw, has yet to be revealed. The plot for the film is being kept under wraps, but the movie does mark the return of Lucas Black, who played Sean Boswell in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.

Fast 8, which also stars Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, hits theaters April 14, 2017.
