Cool, now I would have preferred a Mad Max movie instead of a prequel and knowing how long it takes Miller to make new movies I doubt we’ll see a new movie until he’s dead.

Not sure how much a cameo from Max makes sense given that they first met in Fury Road but I suppose it makes sense about him cruising around in the background or being seen fighting someone in the background.
Maybe he’s the reason Hemsworth has a broken nose in the movie?

@Blergh - I think this is a more casual comment, compared to those complaining that Max isn't the main character of a movie that's a spin off.

The main character of the "Mad Max Saga" might have a very brief cameo in a movie that takes place in "his" series, but it will be his stand-in.

I'm skipping this shit.

@Feralwookiee - Faceeeeeeeeeee offfff! Love that movie. Gotta revisit it again soon. For me it completes a trifecta of brilliant action movies that cage made during the 90s. The Rock, Con-Air & Face-Off.

@Feralwookiee - Yeah, what would George Miller know about the soul of the Mad Max series?
Feralwookiee - 5/8/2024, 3:21 PM
@clintthahamster - Of course he does.
My point is, I don't find Furiosa to be a very interesting character and I'd prefer an actual Mad Max movie so I'll be skipping it.
dagenspear - 5/8/2024, 3:55 PM
@Feralwookiee - This is the most nothing issue. It's like expecting Luke to be the main character in Rogue One. There's literally no reason for Max to be the main character or even involved much in this as a spin off.

@dagenspear - I'm glad that's a nothing issue for you.
Enjoy! 👍

Gotta admit I wasn’t interested in seeing this at first but the recent marketing for this film has me sold. George Miller really can’t miss. Hemsworth looks badass and Taylor-Joy is going to own it as a young furiosa. Normally I frown on prequels but I’m confident this will meet my expectations and surpass them. I’m in the minority when I say I loved the Kingsman and I deem it the best out of the kingsmen trilogy. As a prequel it’s solid, it just works. I found the previous two movies too high on comic relief but kingsman was high on emotional resonance and a sense of dread. Furiosa looks to continue the essence of what made Fury Road unique whilst also delivering an authentic story.

@TheMetaMan - I think The King’s Man was definitely better then some say , I certainly liked it more then The Golden Circle

1.The Secret Service
2.The King’s Man
3.The Golden Circle

Definitely seems like we will see him very quickly or most likely from afar.

I think Miller has said that the movie pretty much goes up until Fury Road so I wouldn’t be surprised if we get another angle of this from that (likely from far wide)…

Anyway looking forward to the film , seems good!!.

But what if we blink at the wrong time?

How will we know if we missed him?

We could be looking for him, in vain, for the rest of the film, not knowing we missed him.

So are we never going to see Tom Hardy as Max again?
Blergh - 5/8/2024, 4:18 PM
@BreakTheCode - part of me thinks that’s what Miller is planning on. Allegedly he made shooting of Fury Road hell for everyone and came too late to set for hours on end.
We’ll probably see a recast Max before Hardy ever again and given the stories…rightfully so

Hard pass

The girls who’s eyes are to far apart and Thors cousin look wack

Plus, having a cameo of who should be the main character and for it to be a stunt double is the final nail in the coffin

bobevanz - 5/8/2024, 2:24 PM
@MuadDib - Max was never the main character, except maybe in the first one. Every other movie he's the side character in THEIR story
TheMetaMan - 5/8/2024, 2:24 PM
@MuadDib - Thor’s cousin????
Feralwookiee - 5/8/2024, 3:26 PM
@bobevanz - Come on now.
The titles of all of these movies have been MAD MAX: Insert subtitle here.

@MuadDib - Why on earth should Max be the main character of a spinoff movie that's not about him or his story at all? This is a big world. Other characters stories can be told in it.
dagenspear - 5/8/2024, 3:53 PM
@Feralwookiee - And the main title of this isn't Mad Max.
bobevanz - 5/8/2024, 2:26 PM
Tickets on sale now. Maybe I'll be the article guy who tells you when tickets are on sale
grouch - 5/8/2024, 6:06 PM
there's already a photo of it(?) showing young furiosa facing a character that resembles Hardy in past article from magazine photos..

Why even have the "Mad Max" name attached to these movies at this point?
