Revealed! ‘World War Z’ Was a Prequel to 'Mad Max: Fury Road’

Revealed! ‘World War Z’ Was a Prequel to 'Mad Max: Fury Road’:

Go with me here.

In 2013’s World War Z, the planet as we know it is battling a zombie outbreak the likes of which fiction has never seen. At the end of the film, allegedly, Brad Pitt’s hero comes up with a treatment that will infect humans with enough bad-mojo juice to make them invisible to the zombie hordes, allowing us to fight back. Allegedly.

But before that happens, he’s trapped in Jerusalem with a tough-as-nails Israeli solder at his side.

Then, Pitt the Hero saves the world. Allegedly. But what if he doesn’t. What if the world burns itself out, a wasteland caused not by a holocaust that’s not nuclear in origin, but zombie? And what if that young female bad ass survived, built herself a prosthetic skull-crusher and got herself a War Rig?
