    Oh, and the only way the feral kid would've found Max's car was if he rewound time, since Max's interceptor, the supposed last interceptor, was blown up in Road Warrior.
    I'd be more open to a theory that Road Warrior takes place after Fury Road than the feral kid one. Also, he eats dog food in Road Warrior, the lizard didn't note anything to me except to show how desperate for food they are.

    Whaaa? Nobody said this or came close to implying it. Fan theories are awful for the reason Grouchy mentioned -- "no real importance to the film." They add a sheen of meaning to movies that have none, and attribute layers to narratives that almost always don't require any interpretation in the first place.
    Dude, you really hate genre films eh?

    The feral kid theory is such a weird reading of the film. A film where all the other characters arc's are about regaining their humanity also has it's protagonist's climactic moment be claiming to be someone he's not.

    Ok, unlike Irish's, this is a legitimate reason to dislike it.

    Above is consistent with what I remember too, which is that they had enough material for at least two more flicks.

    Good to know!

    On some other site, that I shall not name, Mel Gibson was suggested as a replacement. That sounds...appropriate.

    Mel Gibson and his public persona are at odds with the current direction of the franchise.

    Are there are two “Fury Road” sequels in the works?

    Quote Quoting George Miller
    There are two stories, both involving Mad Max, and also a Furiosa story. We’re still solving, we’ve got to play out the Warners thing, it seems to be pretty clear that it’s going to happen.

    Weird interview because both questions and answers sound as if they were written by a publicist.

    The sequels aren't news because Miller talked about them during the run-up to the Oscars in 2015. And said the same things then as now: Furiousa, blah blah, we already have 2 scripts written, blah blah blah.

    But then he went and sued Warners and it went to shit.

    I mean Fury Road against all logical expectations not only was released but filmed in the first place so I feel like anything's possible.
