While Furiosa became an immediate fan-favorite character, fury road it only scratched the surface of the character’s backstory. Still, Miller says he had a complete script on the warrior’s origin at the time. fury road started filming. In Miller’s words:

“When we write Mad Max, the task was to tell a story that would always be running and see how much the public could catch in passing. That was one of the tricks. Mad Max: Fury Road, that there would be references to things where she’s from, why they’re doing things, but she was always on the run. There were very few quiet moments. We never explain how she lost her arm. We never explained what the real Many Mothers Green Place was. We never explain how the Citadel works. So we had the script pretty much complete before we shot. fury road, and we did it because it came from wanting to explain to everyone who Furiosa was: to Charlize when she took on the role, and to all the actors and designers and everyone else who worked on the Citadel and so on.

“[Furiosa] it arose, I’m not going to say by chance, but it arose from a need to explain [Fury Road‘s] world which, as I said, essentially happened over three days and two nights. He’s really trying to explain how that world came to be. We also wrote, not a script, but almost in the form of a novel, Nico Lathouris and me, what happened to Max that year before, and that’s something we’ll see later. But in telling us the story of Furiosa, everything in fury road it had to be explained. In my mind, I have a backstory of the Doof Warrior, who plays the guitar. As a blind man who only knows how to play the guitar, how can he survive in a wasteland where everyone is in extremis? How did he get to be there? So we wrote little stories for each character when we made fury road.”
