This is more or less what I meant by my previous post. These films are throwbacks to a specific time and art form and I'm not sure how well they will lend themselves to the "Marvelization" Hollywood...

Would creating a "Raiders" film that reduced Indy to a mentor role really be any different than what is currently happening with the Rocky franchise, though? I agree it's an odd prospect but so is...

I'm happy we're getting an Indy 5 (and pleasantly surprised it's a true sequel with Ford) but don't have any preconceived notions for where it should go beyond that. I grew up with the original...

I don't think any of us are really in disagreement here, as I'm not arguing in favor of this approach so much as pointing out the possibility.

What is Chris Pratt doing at the start of Guardians of...

It's true there have actually been some very good remakes throughout the history of cinema, but this is why I limited that remark to modern attempts.

Is that really what you took away from my post? If so, perhaps this explains the confusion over Marshall's comments. (Speaking of a similarity to "Scooby Doo", that was also a criticism some...

Well a prequel is not the only way to return the franchise to its roots. You could also take the old "Raiders of the Fallen Empire" approach, pairing Indy with students and moving the titular focus...

Unless they're planning on starting production for a reboot soon after Indy 5, where would be the logic in recasting so early?

For that matter, what's the rush? I agree Disney will have long term...

Yes, there's really nothing unusual about the timeline for this project. However, I suspect many fans- especially those who grew up with Indy in the 80s or 90s- still think in terms of tentpole...

I thought Kasdan might be in play, but I guess he's too busy with Ford's other iconic character right now.

Even though it feels like Spielberg is waving a huge red cape at the internet by hiring...

Yes, if they were going to reboot, they would just reboot. Ford will be nearly 80 when this film is released and the series will have had a span of 11 years since the last entry. Those are ideal...

I do think a big part of the magic of this franchise is the way the talents of Lucas, Spielberg, and even Ford play off each other. It makes the Indy series more distinct and interesting than one...

2/3. I assume Williams will be offered the baton and likely accept it, while Mutt will simply be referenced. (Spielberg may want Mutt and Marion to at least cameo, though.)

4. Given that it will...

It could've had something to do with Ford's reaction immediately after the line- a slight smirk that Indy gives Mutt. Spielberg mentioned during one interview that he liked that (ad-libbed) aspect...

Of course, Lucas also assumed the film would just be torn apart online, so I'd be surprised if he lost any sleep over the backlash.

Great photo. Ford still has enough in the tank to pull off another Indy- even if it remains a few years off. They could always go the Allan Quatermain route- that of the old, bearded adventurer...
