Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We are so pleased to report that Anya Taylor Joy has officially been tapped to take on the role of Furiosa in the upcoming George Miller-directed “Mad Max” spinoff.

If you’ll recall, there’s been chatter about a Furiosa stand-alone film for awhile now, reportedly focusing on a young version of the future Imperator. This would mean, by the nature of the project, that Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron would not be returning for this project. That doesn’t mean we won’t ever see Theron back as Furiosa, but it more than likely won’t be in this film. (Although we still think that early version of a solo film with a flashback would be cool.)

Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II are both also joining the film, but we have no idea who they’ll be playing yet.

George Miller penned the script along with his “Mad Max: Fury Road” co-writer Nico Lathouris. Perhaps the most exciting news here is that the “Fury Road” production team consisting of Oscar winning production designer Colin Gibson, Oscar winning editor Margaret Sixel, Oscar winning sound mixer Ben Osmo, and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt, first assistant director PJ Voeten, and second unit director and LEGENDARY stunt coordinator Guy Norris are all reportedly on board for this 5th “Mad Max” film.

Theoretically, it will be the next film project Miller tackles once “3,000 Years of Longing completes it’s production.
