Indy's supposed to be realistic?
I always saw him very much as a stylized fictional character, intended more as homage to the old serials than as a realistic guy. And as such, having a "costume"...

I always consider those two shows to be cartoons. Maybe my terminology is wrong, but whether we call it a "3D animated series" or a "cartoon," it wouldn't really be something I'd care to see...

I'd much prefer a live-action reboot set in the late 1920s. Cartoons just don't do it for me anymore (though, considering that I'm in my early 40s now, I guess that's to be expected, and I realize...

1969.
Indy got his first real six string, bought it at the five and dime. He played it til his fingers bled, it was summer of 69. He and some guys from school had a band and they tried real hard. ...

I think the easiest way to write around it is just not to make Indy's family part of the story.
Mutt's an adult, so it's not as if he'd be spending that much time with Indy anyway. Odds are, he'd...

Much like how 1935 restricted the villains to being Thuggee? :D

I just hope Indy 6 takes place in 1981. The entire movie could be Indy watching Raiders Of The Lost Ark and making comments about it.

It's a bit surprising. I thought it would be set in the 70s, considering Harrison's age. He'll be 77, won't he? So if he's playing his own age, the movie should be set in 1977. Taking it back to...

Speaking of ages, it's funny to think that Short Round is now older (46) than Indy was in the original films.

I agree, I think 20 is a bit TOO young. It worked okay for the opening to LC because the point was to show his roots, but I don't think it would sustain an entire movie. The absolute youngest...

I really didn't get a SJW vibe from TLJ.

But KOTCS did feel pretty PC compared to previous Indy movies. Indy never shoots anyone in it, and to counterbalance the Russians as villains, we get Mac...

We've already seen Indy with two young male sidekicks (Shorty and Mutt), but seeing him with another one would be somehow less obvious and tiresome than seeing him with a young female sidekick?

Since Mutt's out, maybe Indy 5 will focus on Indy's grandchildren. How cool would it be if Indy has three grand-kids with him on an adventure, aged 4, 6 and 8? And they could be constantly...

At this rate, Indy 6 would have to be set in the 1980s. Maybe Survivor could record the soundtrack, and there could be a montage sequence. Indy could have a mullet and wear Ray Ban sunglasses.

I think they should aim for the mid-1920s. That gives them enough space between the time period of the movie and the time period of TOD (1935) allowing audiences to more easily accept Indy looking a...
