Chris Hemsworth Admits He Enjoyed Playing The ‘Horrible Individual’ Warlord Dementus In ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’

The ‘Thor’ actor is exploring a different character type by playing the villain Warlord Dementus in the upcoming movie ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.’

Chris Hemsworth’s portrayal in the latest ‘Mad Max’ series installment stands out among the franchise’s unforgettable antagonists.

In a chat with Empire Online, Hemsworth revealed the complexities of his role. He emphasized that Dementus defies the typical villain archetype by having deep, purpose-driven motivations rather than simply being driven by chaos:

“He’s a pretty horrible individual. Through the whole film we kept coming back to, ‘This is evil, but what is the intention behind it?’ It’s not just sadistic insanity. There is a real purpose, the wheels are turning, he’s plotting and planning and ten steps ahead of everyone else.”

The Details Of Dementus

Anya Taylor-Joy stars alongside Hemsworth as Furiosa in the movie, set for a May 24 release. Hemsworth believes Dementus shares an unconventional, father-like connection with Furiosa:

“I think that’s how he sees himself. I think there’s a paternal quality and nature to the relationship in his eyes. [Furiosa] would, I’m sure, argue to her death the complete opposite.”

The Actor Enjoyed His Part As The Villain

Hemsworth expressed his thrill over the action sequences in the film. He enjoyed performing stunts and using different vehicles, adding to the excitement of his role:

“The chariot bike is the wildest piece of machinery I’ve ever driven, and I loved every second of it. I mean, hanging off a crane at one point and being loaded onto a monster truck, and then on the monster truck someone unclips me off a harness and the truck spins away into a burnout.”

A New Addition To The Saga

Directed by George Miller, ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’ also features Alyla Browne and Tom Burke. The film returns to Miller’s dystopian universe, introduced more than three decades ago.

This new film delves into the backstory of Furiosa, a character who won over the audience in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’
