Mad Max: Fury Road came out five years ago. George Miller returned to the franchise he started back in 1979. After spending a few decades with children-friendly films like Babe or Happy Feet. His return gave us an amazing R-rated look at the sandy apocalypse and introduced us to an iconic badass, Furiosa. Miller then started becoming vocal about wanting to explore her backstory. That was a surprise, as we thought they would continue the story after Max left Charlize Theron‘s Furiosa at the end of Fury Road. Still, a sequel sounds interesting as it also gives us a chance to find out more about her first meeting with Immortan Joe.
Casting is already underway for the film, as Illuminerdi got their hands on the following character description:
[DEMENTUS] Lead Male (30 – 40)
He is breathtakingly handsome. An angel’s face, scarred by a
deep forehead wound stitched together with shiny chrome
Warner Bros. is currently interested in hiring Chris Hemsworth in the lead role. The description is quite interesting. The mentioning of a deep scar across the forehead is rather interesting. There probably is some kind of backstory they will explore where he got that wound. It will be interesting to see if this character even survives, as there isn’t anyone that would fit his description in Fury Road. No matter what direction they go, I cannot wait to see what they’ll do with this story. Hopefully, they will bring back the amazing visuals that made the last film stand out. I cannot wait to return to the wasteland once again.
