New on-set images from Mad Max: Fury Road

Ah the glory of apocalypse fashion

Mad Max: Fury Road has released a few new on-set images online, showing just how much fun the props department is having coming up with an array of ultra-violent vehicles and accessories appropriate to a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Alongside some more of the heavily-armoured vehicles that have always populated the franchise, there's also a look at a rather fetching face mask and a nifty pair of gloves, customised with an extremely pointy blade attachment.

The film recently released an official plot synopsis, outlining just what we can expect from the latest entry into the canon:

"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."

Meanwhile, former star Mel Gibson has revealed he and director George Miller did discuss the possibility of him reappearing, but goes on to confirm that he feels Tom Hardy is a more than adequate replacement.

"Oh yeah, I’ll have a look," he said when asked whether he would check out the film. "It’ll be fun. I think he’s a good actor. He commits completely and he looks great. There’s this scary thing about him which is kind of right for that. Tom needed to sit down and talk more than I did. I’m really happy about that. But I hope they do a great job. I’m a big fan of George’s."

Co-starring Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Mad Max: Fury Road will open in 2013, with a specific release date yet to be announced.

Looks like it belongs in Mad Max's universe.

 Gotta love vehicles patterned after porcupines.  Yep.  This is the Mad Max universe.

tom hardy is perfect for the role max

So I'm under the impression that this isn't a reboot but rather another adventure of Mad Max probably taking place some time between the first films. Am I wrong, does anyone know?

That mask is sick. I have high hope for this movie.  Has any one seen a pic of Hardy in character?

It's not a reboot

 It's suppose to be after thunderdome. There's also a rumor that he's shooting enough for two movies the second half would be called furiousa.

this is going to be the shit!

@wiseguy, that's what i was wondering myself. in the road warrior max had grey hair and in thunderdome he looked even older. so is this right before road warrior or before thunderdome?  T.H is a bad ass, but kinda confused with the time line of the mad max world this new movie will take place in...love the cars though and the mask is freeking cool looking. guess is like the guy that was big sporting the chrome jason vorhes mask in road warrior, that dude was hiding his face , to me he looked like he was deformed. dam i wish i knew...
