Although there are no concrete plans currently in motion, George Miller has been promising another Mad Max movie from pretty much the moment Fury Road became the surprise blockbuster hit of 2015. Now, he’s revealed that one of that film’s weirder characters is likely to show up in whatever version of the outlandish outback he ends up making, confirming that we haven’t seen the last of the flame-guitar wielding Doof Warrior.
Veterans of the Fury Road will recall that the DW—played by Australian rocker iOTA—rides around on a giant stereo truck, keeping the heavy metal bloodlust up for the troops of Immortan Joe, The People Eater, and The Bullet Farmer as they pursue Max and Imperator Furiosa across the blasted deserts. Apparently, he has a well-considered backstory, too, explaining how a blind, mute survivor became the rock and roll mascot for all the Valhalla-seeking War Boys. “I know who his mother was,” Miller told The Independent. “I know how it was that a man who is mute and blind survived the apocalypse. I know his story very well! If we get to make another movie, the Doof Warrior will be there!”
