The "Mad Max" franchise, known for its dystopian themes, V8 engines, and riveting characters, continues to expand its universe with the upcoming prequel, "Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga." This film delves into the backstory of one of its most enigmatic characters, Immortan Joe.

Originally portrayed by Hugh Keays-Byrne in "Mad Max: Fury Road," Immortan Joe stands out as a formidable villain. His character, ruling with an iron fist, embodies the ruthless nature of a post-apocalyptic warlord. 

Keays-Byrne's portrayal brought a chilling depth to the character, making him a memorable antagonist in the "Mad Max" series and his contribution to the cult film will be long remembered. His influence extends beyond physical dominance, deeply intertwining with the societal and cultural aspects of the film's universe.

Keays-Byrne has passed away so who is to play Immortan Joe in the prequel saga film?

In "Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga," actor Tom Burke steps into the role of Immortan Joe. Known for his compelling performance as Orson Welles in David Fincher's "Mank," Burke's acting prowess promises a nuanced portrayal of this complex character.

Adding to the star-studded cast, Chris Hemsworth plays the character of Dementus, a violent and charismatic warlord.
