The Eteon Director is the overarching antagonist in the Fast & Furious spin-off movie, Hobbs & Shaw. He is the unseen leader of Eteon, who commands Brixton Lore to retrieve the Snowflake virus to wipe out all of humanity in order to create a better humanity.
He is voiced by Ryan Reynolds (credited as "Champ Nightingale"), who portrayed Agent Locke in the above-mentioned film and also portrayed Deadpool in the X-Men Movie franchise and Jerry Hickfang in The Voices.
The Eteon Director is first seen telling Brixton Lore to defeat humanity's weaker half. After the super-soldier meets his defeat, the director later deems that Brixton is not worthy of serving the organization and thus orders the kill switch.
As his body shuts down, Brixton collapses, leading to his watery death. Afterwards, he openly talks to Hobbs, Shaw and Hattie declares that they are on his radar, and that he has a history with Hobbs. He then hangs up after declaring war on them.
The Director is not seen or heard from after this, but they presumably will appear in a potential sequel.
The Eteon Director is Eteon's leader. He pushes his organization to recover the Snowflake Virus and use it to destroy innocent weak humans. He bears nearly no remorse for his actions.
- The Eteon Director was originally intended to make a full appearance in the film and was going to be played by Keanu Reeves, in what would have been his fourth villainous role after portraying David Griffin.
- Dwayne Johnson himself stated that Keanu Reeves was in talks to play the director of terrorist organization E.T.E.O.N., if things had worked out: "What we did at the end was we left the ominous voice faceless. So, for some time, it was going to be a bit of a John Wick, all disguised. But then we left it there with a few people in mind. Originally, Keanu was the goal. We were talking, and it just didn't feel right creatively. He and I talked, and I totally got it. And it wound up being the best thing, so now we leave that open for the future."
- It is possible that the Eteon Director is someone Hobbs knows judging by his words that he and Hobbs have history together.
- As the Eteon Director is never seen onscreen and his voice can sound differently due to being heard through a computer, it's unknown whether the Director is male or female. However, as Keanu Reeves was considered to play the part onscreen, it can be inferred that the Eteon Director is male or was intended to be so.
