It’s just over a month now until Max is going to be returning to our big screens, and I for one am really excited to see what Hardy has done with the iconic role. What I wasn’t bargaining for quite so soon was that I would be seeing him take on the franchise in not just a sequel, or even a second sequel but in another three films. It seems a little over the top if you ask me, but then again nothing is set in stone quite yet.
Hardy himself has admitted that although they have several storylines in mind whether they go ahead on them is directly related to how well Fury Road does in the box office next month. The follow up films were written/conceived in order to better understand the story they were telling in this year’s film. Director George Miller told Comic Con last year that ‘in order to tell this story, we came up with two others. We’ve written the screenplay of one and the novelization of another, but it’s a very rough novel’.
It’s hard to say whether or not I’m excited about this until we have all seen Fury Road. As I said before I’m excited to see what Hardy has done with Max and what angle the new film(s) will take on the story but what about you? What do you think about there being lots more Max in the works? Let me know in the comment box below!
