New images from the set of the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa show Marvel’s Thor star Chris Hemsworth in full costume for his role in the film.
Hemsworth’s Furiosa role is not yet known, though rumors suggest he will be playing the film’s central antagonist. The prequel follows Charlize Theron’s Fury Road character, Imperator Furiosa, played in her youth by Anya Taylor-Joy.
Earlier set photos showed Chris Hemsworth in a red wig and prosthetic nose and the newest Furiosa images to emerge reveal an even better look at his appearance in the film.
Chris Hemsworth Suits Up For Mad Max: Fury Road Prequel
The new set photos, shared by Instagram user “chrishemsworth_italy,” show the Thor: Love and Thunder star suited up on the Furiosa set.
In keeping with the Mad Max franchise’s aesthetic, Chris Hemsworth is donning garish biker gear and carrying a small arsenal of weaponry about his person. The graying red hair and bushy beard, along with the oversized nose, are a far cry from Hemsworth’s look as Marvel’s God of Thunder.

Rumors suggest Chris Hemsworth’s character is Dementus, a warlord who captures Anya Taylor-Joy’s Furiosa from the Green Place, as described in Mad Max: Fury Road. As well as serving as the film’s central antagonist, he is expected to come into conflict with Fury Road villain Immortan Joe.
Here is the synopsis for Furiosa:
As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.
The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth. It is directed by George Miller.
Furiosa is currently set to hit theaters on May 24, 2024. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming Mad Max prequel, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
