I completed my Fury Road Timeline

I did my best to make sense out of the fact we have a "younger" Max operating in a post-apocalyptic Australia where its communities existed for "decades".

Hope you like it!

For any revision, just tell me. 8-)

But the comic prequels are considered canon, aren't they...?

And the upcoming video game too.

I've read tons of interviews from the creators of the game, and they state that it's a totally "standalone" continuity from either the original trilogy and Fury Road.

The "story" is standalone but it still takes place before Fury Road. The game director has said this on a few occasions.

Miller's comic prequel also alludes to the game being canon too.

I always considered the movies as canon. Even when I dealt with the original trilogy. The creature goes beyond the creator.
I don't like the idea novelizations, comic books, games or whatever being "canon" along with the movies.

Well you may not like it but it is what it is. Miller co-wrote the comics with his team so they're official backstories for Max and characters in Fury Road. The game, published by WB Games and featured direct involvement by Miller, takes place before the events of Fury Road with it's own storyline.

I mean not to discourage your timeline or anything, lots of fans produce fanfics and they're great ways to keep busy when you're excited or hyped for Fury Road!

I'm looking forward the comic books. That will put an end to the whole "Fury Road is a sequel" debate, I guess.

Actually, I would love an anime.

Here's my timeline...

Mad Max happens...then Road Warrior.

or

Mad Max happens...then Thunderdome.

Mad Max happens...then Fury Road.

I see all three sequels as possible follow ups to the first one.

I still think whatever the rights and wrongs of the sequel/reboot arguments, I find it hard to see how Max could have been a cop in the Fury Road world. It seems obvious that the world has been like that for decades. For most of the people it seems all they've ever known. I mean just how long would it have taken The Citadel alone to have been built? I don't see how there could have been a functioning police force only 10 to 15 years previously which is what would have to have been given Max's age?
I mean our civilisation isn't just gone, its almost erased. Listen to how the old women are talking, things like satellites are almost folklore. It's set in 2060AD, I can't see how that style of world has not been in place for at least 20 years. Maybe it's just me but In think it's too futuristic for Max to have been a cop at Hardy's age. I mean the only thing we literally see of any sort of a pre apocalypse landmark is that old pylon and it's treated as almost something from ancient egypt :) Ironically if Mel had been onboard the cop angle would have had more relevance, it would have given a comfortable 20 to 30 years for the FR world to evolve. I just can't envisage a world so utterly alien to us, forming in only 10 to 15 years. Nobody else in the film seems to relate to a previous occupation that recently. I cant see a big age difference between Max & Furiosa and from what we glean of her backstory she was taken as a child at a time that already seems past the notion of a police force, a structure of society.

I have to say this in no way spoils the movie for me; perhaps others have a better understanding of Max's age but does anyone else see where Im coming from?
