He’s definitely looking a bit down in the dumps for someone who’s presumably about to spend a large part of a movie beating the crap out of giant monsters in an equally giant, rad-looking robot.


Although set pictures of Boyega in action have been floating around for the past few months, the actor took to Twitter last night to give us our first official look at his character.


Still no full name, though—all we know about him is that he’s the son of Idris Elba’s character from the first film, the outstandingly named Stacker Pentecost. Here at io9 we’ve taken to calling him John Bo-Jaeger in the meantime*. Pacific Rim: Uprising is due to hit theaters February 23, 2018.

*Truly fabulous pun courtesy of the wonderful Evan Narcisse.

James is a News Editor at io9. He wants pictures. Pictures of Spider-Man!

I would squeal for the entire movie if this ended up being a secret Robot Jox Reboot.
