Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the most visually stunning action movies ever made, partly because George Miller eschewed the grays-and-browns trend of post-apocalyptic movies. Fury Road drips with vibrant oranges, reds, and blues that provide a stunning technicolor backdrop for our heroes’ race through the desert. But according to Miller, the best version of the film is one he made without any color at all: the “Black & Chrome Edition” of the film has been teased ever since its release, and it’ll be coming to video stores with a special Blu-ray release after a theatrical debut at this year’s SpectreFest.

George Miller’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ may have been about Tom Hardy’s titular road warrior, but there’s no denying Charlize Theron’s one-armed Furiosa was the real star. According to a rumor, that one-armed heroine might be getting her own movie sooner than expected.

The Black-and-White ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Is Coming to Blu-Ray

In interviews, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller talked about wanting to show his movie in black-and-white. In a conversation with director Edgar Wright, he explained that “the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now.” There were rumblings of a theatrical release of a black-and-white Fury Road, but that never came to pass. But the monochromatic print (heavy on the chrome, in this case) of the movie is coming to Blu-ray, and you’ll be able to get it before the end of the year.

Before you carelessly toss this news in the "obviously" pile, please remember all the reports of tension between Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road — and all the interviews after the film hit theaters, where it seemed like Theron wasn't particularly eager to work on a sequel with George Miller. And while Hardy has signed on for at least two Mad Max sequels, Theron has not, which definitely makes her enthusiastic response to the prospect of playing Furiosa again pretty exciting.

Many years ago, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was deep into development on a Justice League movie. How deep? He had his entire cast — including Armie Hammer as Batman, Common as Green Lantern and Adam Brody as Flash — and was well into rehearsals in Australia. That project wound up getting canceled because of the writer’s strike and Justice League would lay dormant…until this April when Zack Snyder begins filming on his two-part Justice League movie. That film — starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ezra Miller as The Flash — now has at least one major connection to the defunct Justice League film of 2008: Miller himself, who will return to produce the new version.

Like Tim Burton’s Superman movie, George Miller’s Justice League is one of the great “what ifs” of movies that almost happened. And like Burton’s film, there’s a documentary in the works that will explore Miller’s concept for the Justice League movie and just what happened to it. Until then, Miller himself has offered an explanation, but if you were looking for some juicy gossip you might be a little disappointed.

Earlier this week, George Miller was quoted as saying that he was done with the Mad Max franchise, which came as a shock to many, especially since Miller has done nothing but talk up Mad Max sequels since before Fury Road even hit theaters. But as several suspected, Page Six had their story wrong, which just goes to show that you should always take their reports with a GIANT boulder of salt.

We’re in the middle of an Oscar season that’s more unpredictable than ever before, especially following Sunday’s particularly nutty Golden Globes. But in all the unknown, one possible indicator has appeared to (hopefully) make our Academy Awards forecasts a little easier.

Ever since Mad Max: Fury Road opened in theaters this summer, fans have been clamoring for updates on potential sequels. Director George Miller has abided that talk saying that while he wants to shoot a smaller movie first he had planned two additional Mad Max films. That’s the good news. The bad news? Miller now says he has no plans to return to direct any of those films.
