George Miller talks about what could happen to Imperator Furiosa after the events of Mad Max: Fury Road (2015).
Director of Mad Max: Fury Road, George miller, spoke about his sequel to the film that was released in 2015 during a recent interview. Miller spent some time during the hour-long conversation talking about real heroin, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), and what fate did he envision for the character after the final confrontation against Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne).
“There are two ways to go for Imperator Furiosa after Mad Max: Fury Road. One is utopian. I imagined that the first thing I would do in line with that would be to go up and drop the water ”. The director also shared a second option citing the author Joseph Campbell to explain how she would likely become a tyrant: “Campbell said the usual story is that today's hero becomes tomorrow's tyrant. The hero is the agent of change. Basically, they renounce self-interest for some common good. Campbell basically says … You love what you've built or kept too much. You become firm. You become orthodoxy. You develop the dogma and you basically have to protect it. That is usually the rhythm of these things. "
However, Miller doesn't seem to be completely convinced that Furiosa would really turn a total tyrant after Mad Max: Fury Road. As he said, “I think he's too smart to fall into that trap. She has already seen him with Immortan Joe. I think it went through the same process. Joe was probably a heroic character in his own time. "
It's a shame they won't do that sequel.
The idea of Furiosa completely turning into a tyranny after proving that she is a hero in Mad Max: Fury Road it's definitely something really interesting and one that would add some fascinating layers to an already complex and compelling action hero. There's little chance we'll see what Furiosa's future holds for us because they'll likely make a prequel with a young Imperator Furiosa played by another actress first, than the sequel.
