Charlize was sweet enough – I think we both ended up in a situation where we were both so respectful of each other that we didn’t want to contact before. [to filming]. When it’s over, after this press tour is over, we’ll have dinner, and I’m sure we’ll trade war stories. It’s a totally unique situation and I only finished it 13 days ago and then I was thrown into this circus so I think it’s going to take me a second to understand what’s going on. But I feel so grateful to be here, and I feel so grateful to have been able to work with the amazing creatives that the man furious The Mad Max The world is completely unique and epic on a scale that I can’t even imagine [describe]
Why Taylor-Joy and Theron aren’t talking yet is good for Furiosa
That the two still aren’t talking about the role is a good sign, as Taylor-Joy seems to be giving it her all furious. The 26-year-old actor has even been doing his own stunt driving for the role, so it looks like Taylor-Joy has had enough inspiration of her own. With his recent performance in Robert Eggers The Northman and his ability to land roles in potential future blockbusters like The Gorge i The Super Mario Bros. MovieTaylor-Joy has that caliber of talent that can get by with little outside guidance and inspiration when it comes to inhabiting characters for the screen.
The two may also end up portraying two very different versions of the character, so waiting to swap stories might be the right move. Being a prequel, furious will see the character in a while maybe even before he serves Immortan Joe. This may see Furiosa not go down with both arms, and may see the character before she becomes the heroine audiences know, one less hardened by the apocalyptic world.
While audiences may have a different take on the character in the prequel, furious will still take the franchise down an action-packed path. Taylor-Joy recently said that despite its horror genre past, the Mad Max: Fury Road The prequel has covered it in the most fake blood of any production to date, an interesting departure from the minimal blood shown in the previous one. Mad Max movies How Miller and Taylor-Joy have built on these elements with their prequel will be something to watch out for when furious hits theaters in May 2024.
