Back in 2015, Tom Hardy’s Mad Max: Fury Road blew the audience away. Many claimed it was one of the best action movies of all time, possibly even one of the best movies of all time – people loved it. With all the praise, it’s almost odd that there won’t be another film in the franchise until 2024 – almost a decade later.
This time it will be a prequel focusing on the character originally played by Charlize Theron. Anya Taylor-Joy is given the privilege of playing a younger version of her as the story theoretically explores how she grew into the position the audience initially found her in rage street.
Joining her is none other than Chris Hemsworth, star of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film Thor: Love and Thunder. This time he will be the play’s main villain, a drastic departure from his heroic days protecting Midgard.
New photos have now surfaced online showing the actor on set and in costume – and boy does he look different.

How does Hemsworth bring the anger?
While the details of the plot are hard to guess from the above photos alone, it at least appears that the visual style is consistent with Tom Hardy’s previous foray into the universe.
