Mel Gibson was the first actor to portray Mad Max in 1979, with the original trilogy making him a global superstar.

Tom Hardy later reprized the role in Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015, marking the return of the Australian hero to the big screen after a 30-year absence. The film was entitled to a spin-off released last month in theaters, entitled Furiosa: A Mad Max sagaa prequel to the 2015 film centered on the character of Furiosa, with Anya Taylor-Joy taking over from Charlize Theron in the title role.

But Hardy could also be hinting that he simply won’t be involved in the project, following problems he encountered on the set of Fury Road.

By speaking to Telegraph of this shooting, George Miller recently declared: “Tom has a wound within him but also a genius that comes with it, and whatever was going on with him at the time, he had to be convinced to come out of his trailer. »

“What she needed was a better partner, perhaps more experienced than me. I’d like to think that today, now that I’m older and uglier, I could measure up. »

But, judging by this new quote, it’s apparently not in a movie Mad Max that Tom Hardy will be able to prove that he is now up to the task.
