Although both Max (Tom Hardy) and Furiosa find hope and redemption, Fury Road is really more of Furiosa’s story than the road warrior’s. The character was a huge hit with fans and general audiences, and yet, there may be no Furiosa in the Mad Max sequel. Learn more after the jump. Director George Miller is currently speaking with Warner Bros.

THR reports Vance’s character will be
