When auteur George Miller spoke with Digital Spy about the future of his Mad Max film franchise he gave a vague answer as to whether or not Charlize Theron’s breakout character Furiosa will be accompanying Max:

“I’m not sure, is the answer,” Miller said. “She’s not in the Mad Max [sequel]story, but in one of the stories there’s an interaction between [Max and Furiosa]. I can’t really say more than that because it’s still in progress.”

Given that in his previous iteration Mad Max hopped from adventure to adventure this shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans, although perhaps there is still hope for Furiosa’s cameo.

Do you want to see Furiosa included in Mad Max movies moving forward? Do you think her inclusion would be a mistake? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

  1. I saw the movie for the first time last night, and wow. Excellent. That being said, and as amazing as she was in that movie, I’d rather see Furiosa get a spin off rather than appear in another Mad Max movie. I think that there would be too much convoluted story writing needed to have her uproot and travel with Max on his adventures. I say she should have her own movie instead. I’d watch the heck out of that.

  2. I completely agree with Thunderhowl.

    One of the big strengths of the Mad Max series is that it isn’t a straight up storyline. It is the story of this guy traveling through a desolate wasteland and trying to survive. He’s not really a hero in the traditional sense. He’s just a decent guy who helps out as he treks through a post-apocalyptic desert.

    Trying to create a through-line would detract from potential future films.

  3. I’m going to third Thunderhowl’s comments. While I would totally be down for more of her character in a spin-off, her story in relation to Max is done.

    So maybe hope’s for Furiosa: Stronghold.

    No. For me everyone that Max comes across is a ghost already, impermanent, like the dust in the air. Here one moment and gone the next. Maybe y’all can write some fan fic that involves Furiosa hooking up with the feral kid in the new Barter town Auntie has set up, but I’m content not letting Max have friends to fall back to.

  5. I wouldn’t be opposed to have Theron take on a slightly different role like Bruce Spence did but I have to agree with the others. Mad Max has moved on because he hasn’t found his place yet.
