I’m talking about the Doof Warrior, of course.
When Mad Max: Fury Road was released back in 2015, the internet was almost literally ablaze with excitement. George Miller’s return to the long-dead franchise was worth the wait, to say the least, and it was such a spectacle of wildly over the top action and world-building that many immediately crowned it one of the best action films ever made.
I was one of those people. And I stick by that opinion.
Not surprisingly, the Academy Award-winning Fury Road is soon getting a follow-up tentatively titled Mad Max: The Wasteland, which will be the first of two sequels being planned by George Miller. Speaking with The Independent this week, Miller teased the future of the rebooted franchise, revealing that the ass-kicking guitarist known as the Doof Warrior will be back!
He told the site:
We dug down deep into the subtext, the backstory of all the characters, and indeed the world…and without really thinking about it, we wrote two other screenplays just as part of the bible of the stories. Somewhere, if the planets align, there will be two other films.
If we get to make another movie, the Doof Warrior will be there! I know who his mother was. I know how it was that a man who is mute and blind survived the apocalypse. I know his story very well!
Miller added that he’s first making a smaller film before returning to the Mad Max world.
