Director George Miller has told Digital Spy that Imperator Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road, may not be appearing at all in the proposed sequel.
“I’m not sure, is the answer,” Miller said when asked about Theron’s potential return. “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.”
The Australian filmmaker also said that the previously-mentioned sequel name, Mad Max: The Wasteland, may not be the film’s final title.
“That name came out, that was just a working title,” he said. “Nico Lathouris and I wrote deep backstories on all the characters and they eventually became screenplays – so we have two [more movies].
“I’m happy to say that there’s discussions about them right now, but I hope the next film I make is a very small without any special effects and not many stunts.”
Mad Max: Fury Road is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.
