Even though Tom Hardy’s Max was the title character, “Mad Max: Fury Road” really was all about Charlize Theron’s bionic-armed, shaved headed Imperator Furiosa who stole the show throughout the acclaimed film’s entire runtime.
Now, in a new interview with Digital Spy, Miller was asked about the potential of Theron’s return in the next film. The response was not a good one for fans of the character, but not a complete lock out either:
“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.”
Miller recently confirmed that he has talked with the studio about the direction of the sequel, but for now it’s a question of when he would like to do it – something that seems a while off.
