Mad Max: Fury Road and Atomic Blonde proved that beyond a doubt. She’s back in action mode for Netflix graphic novel adaptation The Old Guard, and the first images are online.

Created by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez for Image Comics, the title follows a small group of soldiers who are all inexplicably immortal and have spent the years working as mercenaries. The team, and their leader, a woman named Andy (Theron), are more than over the novelty of not dying, but they then learn there’s another immortal out there, a black female Marine. At the same time, evidence of their undying nature is captured on camera by a nefarious organisation.

Gina Prince-Bythewood’s in the director’s chair for this one, with Rucka adapting the script from his own work. The likes of Kiki Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Van Veronica Ngo, Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor co-star and it’ll be on Netflix on 10 July.
