Mad Max director George Miller is back again, talking about the next films he wants to make in that franchise. While doing so, he discussed the true star of 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road -- guitar guy, aka Coma-Doof Warrior, or Coma The Doof Warrior, which is his actual name, although guitar guy/dude just sounds better to me.
The scene-stealing character got his own backstory and there's still hope that he'll find a way into the next movies.
George Miller told Deadline he's "not done with the Mad Max story," as he's mentioned several times before, adding, "there's certainly another Mad Max coming down the pike after this."
So, in theory, Coma could possibly return. George Miller has even talked about it before, potentially bringing back this character in the next Mad Max sequel.
Deadline asked about the chances of Coma returning in another Mad Max movie. In his response, Miller delved deep into the character's history:
I love when seemingly minor movie characters have entire backstories. George Miller continued, explaining how The Doof Warrior ended up on Immortan Joe’s side of things in Mad Max: Fury Road:
I love it. And it's not like George Miller came up with that on the fly, he gave guitar dude's backstory to Australian-based musician iOTA, who played the character in Mad Max: Fury Road.
Here's what he was told about Coma-Doof Warrior's backstory:
As we wait for Warner Bros. and George Miller to ever finally announce they are actively filming the next Mad Max movie, and not just talking about making the next Mad Max movie, keep up with everything heading to the big screen next year with our 2020 movie release date schedule.
Would you want to see Coma return in whatever is next for the Mad Max franchise?
