23 Nov – Eddie Murphy is returning as his iconic character Axel Foley and Netflix now has the first image of him in character.
On 21 November, the streaming giant shared the first photo of Murphy as the rogue cop on Twitter, which has the character in his trademark Detroit Lions Jacket and raising his hands in defense as he is being approached by two cops.
He can also be seen standing in what looked like an upside-down cart.
"He's back," the caption read. "Axel Foley returns in 2024!"
It is noted that this is Murphy's first time reprising his role as Axel Foley in nearly 30 years following the third instalment of the movie.
Mark Molloy directs the fourth instalment, which also stars Kevin Bacon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Taylour Paige, aside from original actors Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser and Bronson Pinchot.
