Deepfake Imagines Jodie Comer As Furiosa In Mad Max: Fury Road Prequel

There are a few social faux pas that you’d want to avoid with all of your might; you never want to offer your seat to a pregnant lady, only to find out she’s not expecting; nor do you wish to send a text about someone accidentally to them.

But worst of all is saying that you’ve never seen a single episode of Killing Eve. You may as well call that not-pregnant lady Fatty McFatface, because there’s no recovering from admitting that.

And yet, here I am openly admitting that I have not seen Killing Eve. In fact, the only footage from that I have seen is from Googlebox, and I usually just watch that to see what zany mugs Pete and Sophie are wielding this week.

But that’s not to say that I’m not excited for the possibility of seeing Jodie Comer star as Furiosa in a prequel to the exceptional Mad Max: Fury Road, after Charlize Theron rejected the role.

So – after seeing Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr.’s deepfake become a viral sensation, I merely jumped on the bandwagon and tirelessly spent hours upon hours of sleepless nights attempting to create my own deepfake.

Honestly, if not even my own mother likes this tweet, I will quit the internet forever.

Originally, George Miller – than man behind scenes such as flaming-guitar wielding cannibals in Mad Max, and giggling mice in Babe – originally intended on using de-aging technology to bring back the Bombshell star.

“For the longest time, I thought we could just use CG de-aging on Charlize, but I don’t think we’re nearly there yet,” he said. “Despite the valiant attempts on The Irishman, I think there’s still an uncanny valley. Everyone is on the verge of solving it, [in] particular Japanese video-game designers, but there’s still a pretty wide valley, I believe.”

It was said that a fifth Mad Max movie was set to begin filming this year, but unless the entire premise is of Max attempting to connect to a Zoom call in Tom Hardy’s flat, I doubt that’ll happen anytime soon.
