Everything we know about ‘Furiosa’, the prequel to ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

The first three films of the saga Mad Max built one of the most important cult characters in contemporary cinema, Max Rockatansky. Portrayed by Mel Gibson, with the direction and production of George MillerMax plunged into a world increasingly maddened, far from civilization and closer, minute by minute, to barbarism.

Mad Max: Fury Road it was the hyperbolization of all that. The universe Mad Max it is marked by prolonged silences, tension through gazes, and an enormous amount of political and philosophical references. All of that came together in that movie. Although the awards do not always serve to measure the value of a work, Mad Max: Fury Road it received six of the ten Oscars for which it was nominated; still being an action movie. From her, beyond the tradition gathered in Max Rockatansky – interpreted on this occasion by Tom Hardy-, highlighted one character above all: Imperator furious, covered by Charlize Theron.

Unlike Max, there was no information about her in the three previous films. Charlize Theron played Furiosa, appropriated the film and, almost entirely, the narrative. However, among so many explosions, riff guitar and shooting, its origin was not addressed. That is why it makes sense to do Angry, a prequel aimed at learning more about that character.

‘Furiosa’: related actors

While there are several questions regarding the project, there are already some confirmed figures: Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

Anya Taylor-Joy

The prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road will not feature Charlize Theron. Although the idea was for her to be in the movie, George Miller did not want to have to rejuvenate her through some method. This may give clues to a possible development, aimed at exploring years prior to Fury on the road. However, the possible development will be discussed later. Returning to the role of Imperator Furiosa, the actress in charge of playing her will be Anya Taylor-Joy. Yes, the protagonist of Gambito the dama, the success of the Netflix series.
