Comic-Con: Mad Max: Fury Road Footage Description
After the surprise footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Warner Bros. Comic-Con panel in Hall H continues with director George Miller making his SDCC debut to present footage from the highly-anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road. Take a look at a photo of the director addressing his fans in Hall H, then read on for a description of the footage.
The scene begins with Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) standing next to his car, as a bizarre lizard with two heads runs away. We hear Max say in a voiceover, "My name is Max. My world is fire and blood." The footage continues with a montage of several different cars and motorcycles in this post-apocalyptic wasteland as a chase sequence ensues through a series of tornadoes.
Nicholas Hoult's Nux is driving through one of the tornadoes, while a number of other vehicles give chase as bodies go flying through the air, tagline pops up, reading, "The world belongs to the Mad," as the footage comes to a close.
George Miller went on to reveal that, while Max just wants to be left alone in peace, he gets involved with Charlize Theron's Furiosa, the leader of a war rig traveling through the wasteland. The director also revealed that this movie is closer in tone to Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, but he wouldn't confirm where exactly Mad Max: Fury Road is set, in regards to the franchise timeline.
It was also confirmed that Hugh Keays-Byrne, who played Toecutter in the original Mad Max, plays a villainous role in Mad Max: Fury Road, with the director making him wear a metal mask so fans wouldn't confuse him with Toecutter.
It isn't known if Warner Bros. will be bringing this footage online anytime soon, but stay tuned.
