Chris Hemsworth has revealed that he initially had trouble understanding his furiosa character and worried that his performance might “derail” that crazy max Franchise.
“Often times I get a script and I know from the first read, from the second read, I know who the character is, and I have an immediate, kind of instinctive feeling that comes with it, like, ‘Okay, I’ve got it. ‘ I read that two years before we started filming and was impressed by the script. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever read. I love George Miller — but I didn’t know who that character was,” Hemsworth explained to the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “We rehearsed for about four weeks, and we started digging into it and diving into it, and things just started, to come over to me. And then about two weeks into filming, it clicked. I was like, ‘Ooh! Ooh who it is. I think that’s how he moves.’ For years, I was terrified. I was like, ‘I’m going to derail one of the most iconic franchises.’ I’m going to bring down Mad Max. It’s going to be my fault.”
Hemsworth’s role in the Mad Max: Fury Road Prequel remains secret, although rumor has it that he will play a young version of Immortan Joe – the main antagonist of rage street — who has been confirmed to appear in the upcoming film. The actor best known for playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has previously described his furiosa Character as “a very complicated, somewhat evil individual”. Despite the character’s malicious intentions, Hemsworth explained that he tried to “find ways to defend his actions and to empathize and understand him” and that “he has a light and a darkness that I’ve never played with before.” “.
Anya Taylor Joy is Furiosa
Anya Taylor-Joy plays a young Emperor Furiosa in the upcoming prequel movie, replacing Charlize Theron, who created the role in 2015 rage street. Set several years before the events of the 2015 film, furiosa will follow the title character as, according to the film’s official synopsis, “snatched from the Green Place of many mothers and fallen into the hands of a great biker horde led by Warlord Dementus.” “On their way through the wasteland, they come across the citadel, run by Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants battle for supremacy, Furiosa must face many trials while assembling the means to find her way home.”
furiosa will be the fifth film in the crazy max franchise that started in 1979 crazy max. The Australian dystopian action film, starring Mel Gibson, followed the title character in a near-future Australia in the midst of societal collapse. The film was successful at the box office and led to three sequels: Crazy Max 2 also known The Street Warrior (1981), Mad Max beyond Thunderdome (1985) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). Gibson starred in the first three films, with Tom Hardy taking on the title role rage street.
