to shorten it down indy and mutt are surrounded by lions. they get out of it and are then chased by, yes, a stampede of lions. They then run into a shooting range and almost get killeed but befriend another archaelolgist that was shooting on the shooting range.

the end.

if that interests you, then read at your own risk.

In Doom, vampire bats are merely something to show off about, Elephants something to endure, bugs are just bugs, and funky food something to deal with (pocket fruit!).

Oh rats! he exclaims almost sarcastically in Crusade. Lions are tamable, Rhinos avoidable. Even the Nazis are like bugs. Just something in the way of the goal.

He doesn't even seem to NOTICE the ants in Skull! Admittedly he HAS the Skull to wave them off with, but in typical Indy-style he accepts this matter-of-factly and gets on with business.

So any creature he will treat quite rationally, except maybe for snakes, and if the threat is minimal he will dismiss it and if not, deal with it. (RPG, rock, flagpole etc.) It is for the supporting cast to react irrationally and panic.

OK, not even sure what point I was trying to make now Time for bed

great points but in skull I think there is a bit of fear in his voice in said line...

'Big damn ants, Run! Go! go." Just listen to it and if you dissagree then it's alright.

I will double check but I think you are quite right. Oh he will react if he thinks there is a danger there but I guess he is calmer after he realizes the ants avoid the skull. He really picks up his hat most nonchalantly!

I notice that creatures (and often inanimate things too) mostly seem to be of a far greater threat to others around him than to Indy himself. Guess that's all part of the gag.

nick, yes do check. And you are absolutely right. He does seem calm later on in the fight.

Anything that isn't completely CGI. That took me out of the moment in KOTCS. They were just too obviously not organic.
The only thing I could think of that would be cringe worthy are giant bug larvae of some kind. Ew.

Sharks are good; they did that in the recent Tomb of the Gods strip and it was great.

Having read Tomb of Gods, I reckon sharks would work rather well.

But a Shark is not a creepy crawly. It's a oceanic creature.

I think something like giant wasps could work really well. Having Indy run from an entire swarm of flying creatures would be a neat touch.

A swarm of flying something or other does seem like a natural progression... be that locusts, bees, wasps etc. It also adds to the peril stakes by the feeling of being pursued/chased by something deadly.

Now, imagine a whole underground lake or wet chamber full of them. Ewwww...

Did I mention they jump pretty high?

So, yeah, that could be a worthy scene for 5.

Don't I know it! But Violet, I'm not sure I could sit through and watch toads in and Indy movie, I would probably spew , In fact I'm close to it just thinking about it.

I was thinking Aficanised Bees, maybe give scorpins, bats or spiders top role, and I wouldn't mind snakes again! I like to think of these creepy crawlies as infestations that get in Indy's way. I like Frank Darabont's idea of using the frog that if you touched you would be poisned and die (poison arrow/dart frogs). Though he would have to return to the Amazon!

Has anyone ever read "The Hunger Games"? There's a part in there when the main character drops a mutated wasp nest on some people. The whole time I was reading it I thought " This is Indy material".

Has anyone here read Ian Flemings 1958 James Bond thriller Dr No. It differs from the 1962 film on key points. Towards the end on Dr No's island Bond is put through some test and one includes being fed to a giant squid! This might work well if used right and it might help tie in with Indy being based on Bond.

The only problem would be fitting it into the story without ruining the consept.

Yes Lonsome I have!

That was the Kraken, a mythological creature, I was thinking something more real and gritty. Anyway, I never got the point of the use of the Kraken in ET!

P.S. Plus I've read Shrine of the Sea Devil, and for me (even though it was first) seem too Pirates of the Caribbean-ish, especially the part with the ship attack. I would be quite sad if anything like that turned up in Indy V!

I like the idea of giant spiders.



Now imagine these bastards, but the size of beagles. Instant willies!

This is what their bites can do:



Now, of course, that kind of injury won't be seen in an Indy movie anytime soon, but it gives you an idea of how big a punch these things pack!

Sorry if I seriously grossed out anyone.

Heh, is your point that fitting things into the story sometimes hasn't mattered for Indy products?
