Digital Spy recently sat down with Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller & he had this tidbit to say in regards to whether or not Charlize Theron’s Furiosa will return.
“I’m not sure, is the answer, 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.”
I’ve noticed many sites are going with point blank “she’s not returning”. In my mind, this reads out as more “I’m not sure” & there’s a possibility for a cameo but she doesn’t have a lead role. People have pointed out on twitter that the other Mad Max sequels essentially are stand alone and not direct sequels. I have a feeling it will be all up to Theron if she wants to return or not. I’ve read the shoot was brutal on everyone most stuff was done for real in South Africa without the aid of green screen, & reportedly Theron did not get along with Tom Hardy as he had a semi method way of working.
Mad Max 5 does not have a set release date but has been given the go ahead.
