Whilst the casting of Solid Snake does appear to have been confirmed in the form of Oscar Isaac, a chameleon in terms of roles in Hollywood, this doesn’t stop many from adapting who they would like to see in the role. This was evident in a recent post on Social Media site X.

With the release of the latest entry to the Mad Max franchise, many people will no doubt be familiar with actor Tom Burke and his role as Praetorian Jack. This led one person to post artwork of the fan casting of the actor in the titular role for the Metal Gear movie, which he made sure to tag Kojima in the hopes that he would see this and approve.

The original post has been viewed nearly 200 thousand times and the comments on the post have been full of praise for the adaptation and the hopes that Kojima himself would see this and heap praise on the artwork.

Hideo Kojima To Take On A Mad Max Game?

Could we see Kojima take on another franchise?

The Metal Gear franchise has seen huge success and it was reported that as of February 2024, over 61 million copies had been sold. In a financial sense, this means that the series has grossed several billion dollars since it first launched and its creator, Hideo Kojima, holds a legacy like few others.

Such is his legacy that Furiosa director George Miller would trust him implicitly to take on a video game of the franchise. It is certainly high praise and who is to say that it isn’t something that Kojima would consider in the future? There is such mutual respect between the two that many fans of the Mad Max franchise would hope that this comes to fruition.

Whilst many fans are still waiting for the latest news on Kojima’s masterpiece being brought to the big screen, it hasn’t stopped them from developing fan art and proposing various roles to be filled. What is clear is that this franchise remains one of the most popular in the gaming world and shows no sign of dissipating.
