Chris Hemsworth looks completely unrecognizable on the set of “Mad Max: The Wasteland”.
First launched in 1979, “Mad Max” is a classic apocalyptic film series about the 22nd century when the world was destroyed by nuclear war. In 2015, original director George Miller enjoyed the franchise’s syndrome-level popularity once again after 30 years by producing “Mad Max: Fury Road”. In June 2023, the next movie, “Mad Max: The Wasteland” will be released.
On August 23, the first look at Chris Hemsworth in full costume captured on the set of “Mad Mad: The Wasteland” (working title: Furiosa) in Sydney, Australia, became a hot topic among fans and netizens. The star of “Thor” surprised everyone with his unrecognizable appearance.
Wearing a dirty black vest, jeans and boots with gold trim, Chris Hemsworth wore a long beard, a wig and even a fake nose. Only the bursting arm muscles and solid abs made fans realize the man in the photos was Chris Hemsworth. He also drew attention as he climbed into the driver’s seat of a vehicle that looked like a giant tank.
The exact role Chris Hemsworth plays in the movie is yet to be revealed, but it is speculated that he took on an antagonistic role.
Fans left comments on the shocking set photos of Chris Hemsworth:
- If you didn’t tell me, I would have no idea that is Chris Hemsworth
- I only recognized him because of his muscles
- The wild beard and fake nose had me shook
- I was looking forward to seeing Thor in Mad Max. He looks perfect.
Meanwhile, “Mad Max: The Wasteland” is a prequel film that depicts the events before what took place in the 2015 movie “Mad Max: Fury Road”, and focuses on the story of Furiosa.
Anya Taylor-Joy, who is most famous for her roles in “Split” and “The Queen’s Gambit”, was cast for the role of Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron in the previous film.
Filming for “Mad Max: The Wasteland” was halted earlier this month when director George Miller was diagnosed with COVID-19, but filming has recently resumed, raising high expectations from movie fans.
