Yes, that is Chris Hemsworth terrorizing Anya Taylor-Joy’s Furiosa and the wider Wasteland in the new Furiosa trailer. He certainly looks the part and, in a new interview, the Thor actor has also given us a taste of what else to expect from Dementus in the prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road.
Speaking at CCXP – and recorded by Collider’s Steven Weintraub – Hemsworth described his villain as a "complicated individual."
"He’s [a] violent, insane, brutal person that is born from the wasteland. He’s a product of his environment. There’s an intensity to him… he has been birthed into a space where it’s kill or be killed and he has learned to rule with an iron fist. There’s a charisma to him and it’s a very manipulative charisma."

The Australian actor recently told British GQ that working on Furiosa was "by far the best experience of my career, and something I feel the most proud of."
He continued, "It made me think, the work isn’t what’s exhausting, it’s what kind of work it is, and how invested I am in it and if it is challenging in the right ways."
Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, directed by George Miller and starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, and Tom Burke, is set to race into cinemas on May 24, 2024.
