The Tom Hardy-starring reboot of Mad Max has been in production for what seems like an eternity.
Last month Entertainment Weekly revealed the first shots from the film, starring the man himself in action (dodging explosions and bad guys) as well as the supporting cast, including Charlize Theron as a character called Imperator Furiosa and Nicholas Hoult’s Nux.
Now a new image has been released of Hardy looking just a bit badass as Max Rockatanski (above), standing beside a motorbike and showing us all how leather should be done.
This image was originally from an autographed picture, signed by Hardy, but it’s since been verified by Warner Brothers as our first, proper look at the man.
As well as these first-look images, the first official poster has just been released. It’s a bleak affair, picturing who we’re assuming is Hardy standing beside a worn-out muscle car in the middle of the desert. Judging by the sun-bleached colours we’re looking at a very stylized action flick, with the “2015” text bearing more than a passing resemblance to the 300 logo.
With a supporting cast also including Zoe Kravitz, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, we don’t have long to wait until the world ends next spring.
Mad Max: Fury Road is released on 15 May 2015
