Dr. Dementus is a character name that fits well into the Mad Max universe. Aside from Immortan Joe, some of the establishment’s key bad characters have had unusual names including Toecutter, Lord Humungus, and Auntie Entity. Nonetheless, it’s possible that this character’s name is a misinterpretation of the 1980s radio character Dr. Demento, who has collaborated closely with Weird Al Yankovic.
If the report about Furiosa is true, it will be a fascinating turn for Hemsworth, who has struggled to find work outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that he enjoys. While he has proved his abilities in both activity and satire, this will allow him to expand his reach significantly. Thor’s personality’s future is undetermined following his next appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, thus this open door arrives at the perfect time.
In the Mad Max film Furiosa, Chris Hemsworth will reportedly play a dystopian villain. The Mad Max franchise began in 1979 and chronicles the exploits of a vagabond named Max who gets into vehicle-related mischief in a dystopian Australia. Mad Max: Fury Road, starring Tom Hardy as Max and Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, the driver of one of Immortan Joe’s battle rigs, was the most recent instalment. She starts a wild chase after pirating his group of concubines of husbands out of his compound, which lasts virtually the entire film. Mad Max Fury Road was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards that year, and it is widely regarded as one of the best action films ever made.
Furiosa, which will chronicle Theron’s adventures as a young lady, is already in pre-production with returning director George Miller. Despite being repeatedly postponed, the film is now set to be released on May 24, 2024. Anya Taylor-Joy, who starred in The Queen’s Gambit, will replace Tom Burke in an unspecified role as Furiosa. There had been no hints as to who Burke will play until recently, and it has also been confirmed that Chris Hemsworth will appear in Furiosa.
