Thor in the Max Max prequel: Fury Road!
After the summer blockbuster that will be Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth continues with an unexpected project for him, Furiosa, the spin-off of Mad Max: Fury Road. The film depicts the youth of the character introduced in the 2015 reboot, still directed by George Miller, creator of this post-apo universe.
Chris Hemsworth will be joined by Anya Taylor-Joy, whose performance in The Queen’s Game made a big impression, and will play the young version of Furiosa. The character was previously played by Charlize Theron in 2015. The young actress confided, in an interview with Variety, to be enthusiastic about the idea of playing the character of Furiosa, in particular because George Miller is in charge of the realization.

For now, the plot remains quite mysterious. The composer of the previous opus, Junkie XL, will be at the origin of the music of this spin-off. Furiosa is scheduled for May 22, 2024 in theaters.
