The release date for the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road prequel, called Mad Max: Furiosa, has been revealed, finally.
This news comes to us from Variety who revealed in a recent article that Mad Max: Furiosa’s release date is currently June 23rd, 2023.
It was revealed not too long ago that Furiosa will be played by Anya Taylor-Joy in the movie.
She’ll be playing the younger version of the character played brilliantly by Charlize Theron in the 2015 film.
Mad Max: Furiosa will be directed by George Miller and also stars the likes of Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
Honestly, that’s a brilliant cast, and I can’t wait to see all of them on-screen together.
Mad Max: Furiosa’s release date revealed to be on June 23rd, 2023
It was reported that Charlize Theron was “heartbroken” over having been replaced as Furiosa.
There were talks of de-ageing Theron in the movie so that she could play the character again.
However, George Miller took the decision to re-cast the role rather than going down the CGI route.
It could have been done, however, I do believe that they found a more than suitable replacement in Anya Taylor-Joy.
It’ll be interesting, also, to see who Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II play in the movie.
I imagine that Hemsworth will be playing a Mad Max-esque character.
However, I’m pretty sure he’s not the ‘actual’ Mad Max.
That just wouldn’t make sense chronologically.
