“I was amazed by this incredible mind of George Miller. It’s difficult to put into words,” Taylor-Joy expresses of the movie. “I feel so humbled and grateful. I think the first thing I thought was ‘I am so excited to work so hard.’ The level of commitment that has been shown by those who came before me, I endeavor to match that. That makes me really excited. I have so much respect for the originators of this crazy world and this collection of characters. I am excited to work really hard.”
In addition, Chris Hemsworth who is popularly known as Thor in Marvel Cinematic Universe will be a new face in Furiosa. Chris has also played a significant part in Extraction and Bad Times at EI Royale. HBO’s Watchmen fame, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is all set to appear in the upcoming film Mad Max.
