The Wasteland is referred to as the world the Mad Max movies take place in, dating way back to the original 1979 film with Mel Gibson!
Miller admitted that it was thanks to Fury Road's long delay that he now has a trilogy of films planned out. The director explained:
"We've got one screenplay and a novella. It happened because with the delays [on Fury Road], and writing all the backstories, they just expanded."
Good things happen to those who wait — like more Tom Hardy!
We just hope Charlize Theron will be back too…
