Chris Hemsworth in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’- JASIN BOLAND/MARVEL STUDIOS
Chris Hemsworth was confirmed to play the character of the main villain in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa in March.
Set images have surfaced online of the actor in the prequel. Sighting a large beard, the Thor actor also has long gray hair and is dressed in the heavy-metal-styled post-apocalyptic aesthetic that’s signature to the Mad Max series.
Furiosa will center around the titular character’s origin story when she’s taken away from the Green Place of Many Mothers by a Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. As the group ventures through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. The two fight for dominance as Furiosa tries to survive the ordeal and figure out her way home.
Furiosa will arrive in theaters May 24, 2024.
