Filming on the long-delayed Mad Max: Fury Road finally wrapped several weeks ago, and now we might have our first look at the eponymous road-warrior.  In the new movie, Mad Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) gets caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron).  Although George Miller, who directed the previous Mad Max movies, has returned for the fourth installment, we don’t know if the new film is a sequel or a reboot.  The leather outfit may be considered a little outdated (although this set photo from Bleeding Cool showed Hardy rocking the leather pants), so perhaps this is Mad Max for the 21st century?

Hit the jump to check out the full image.  The film also stars Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Nathan Jones. [Update: We've removed the unofficial image.]

Here’s the official synopsis for Mad Max: Fury Road:

According to Miller, “Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.”

    This looks kinda boring and mundane. Like a special ops soldier in afghanistan. It doesn’t have the instant iconic and unusual look that Mel had in the original films.

    I’d actually like them to keep that 80′s feel to the costume design, lotsa spikes and chainmail, but I’m cool with this look as well.

    He is actually wearing a black leather jacket and black leather pants if anyone hasn’t noticed…It is just bad lighting in the photograph.

    I think it would be interesting to see different actors playing this character as we have seen with Bond, Jack Ryan and Batman.

    “Although George Miller, who directed the previous Mad Max movies, has returned for the fourth installment, we don’t know if the new film is a sequel or a reboot.”

    Is it just me or is Goldberg asking a stupid question? Like, really stupid. The Mad Max universe isn’t a complex setting: the post-apocalyptic trappings are just an excuse for some car chases, and the stories were never about film-to-film consistency. For instance, is Bruce Spence playing the same character in the second and third films? (He kinda is, but the way he looks and reacts to Max suggests a different character entirely.) So why the hell would the franchise need to be rebooted, then, just because a new actor has been cast in the Max role? I assume Hardy will be playing the same Max that Gibson played, just in another adventure. For someone who bitches about reboots, Goldberg seems about as fixated upon them as anyone else.

        It was a rhetorical question. It is a stupid question because the answer is so damn obvious. But great comeback, genius.
