fury road sequel

We’ve all been eagerly awaiting a follow-up to George Miller‘s gonzo action masterpiece Mad Max: Fury Road, and it looks like we’re finally getting it. Eventually. Miller is still set to make the drama Three Thousand Years of Longing first, but after that’s in the can, he’s ready to return to the Mad Max world. And instead of a sequel, the next film is going to be a prequel focused on a younger Furiosa. This means – sadly – Charlize Theron isn’t returning.

armie hammer batman

You may not know this, but Armie Hammer came very close to playing Batman in George Miller‘s never-made Justice League Mortal. We’ll never know if Hammer would’ve made a good Batman or not, but now we know how he would’ve portrayed the character – as a psychotic.

Fury Road Lawsuit

Oh, what a lovely day for a lawsuit. George Miller, who created a modern-day masterpiece with Mad Max: Fury Road, is not content to just sit back and make a Fury Road follow-up without getting his just rewards. The Aussie filmmaker wants the WB to pay-up on a bonus they originally agreed on. Warner Bros. doesn’t see it that way, and so both Miller and Warners will now hop into souped-up vehicles laden with spikes and race forward into the wasteland of due process. What will become of the potential Fury Road sequel now?

Justice League Mortal

Before Batman v Superman, there was going to be Superman vs. Wonder Woman.

It’s a classic, bittersweet case of “what could’ve been.” George Miller‘s abandoned Justice League Mortal movie remains mostly a mystery to us, confined to the reaches of our imagination. But talking about the possibilities of never-made movies is always fascinating, and one of the the scrapped film’s cast members, Jay Baruchel (who was set to play villain Maxwell Lord), took a walk down memory lane to reveal some tantalizing details of the never-made film — including a brutal throwdown between two of the World’s Finest.
