Mad Max: The Wasteland is happening, right? This summer's Mad Max: Fury Road has been one of the most well-received movies of the year by fans and critics alike. While it just barely made it's $150 million budget back in the states, it did go onto earn $368 million worldwide. And director George Miller has confirmed that a screenplay is ready. Well, don't tell that to star Charlize Theron, whose Imperator Furiosa was a breakout character and a fan favorite. She knows nothing about a proposed sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road.
Does this mean she's not returning? Way back in 2010, it was said that two Mad Max sequels were being shot back-to-back, with the second titled Mad Max: Furiosa and said to focus mainly on Charlize Theron's character. We haven't heard anything about that movie in years, and it's believed that story was merged into the final version of Mad Max: Fury Road. And it's very possible that Furiosa's tale has been told.Read More
At this point, it isn't known if Charlize Theron is even interested in taking on the Captain Marvel role. Other actresses such as Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt and Katheryn Winnick have been rumored for the role in the past, but with the movie still three years away from release, it isn't known when a decision on the Captain Marvel casting will be made. Still, if Marvel does want Angelina Jolie to direct Captain Marvel, one way to ensure her signing on could be to cast Charlize Theron.
We also reported last month that Marvel may be considering Ava DuVernay (Selma) to direct either Captain Marvel or Black Panther, but those rumors haven't been confirmed either. Would you like to see Angelina Jolie directing Charlize Theron in Captain Marvel? Let us know what you think below.Read More
