Do your research.

Actually, maybe.

Not just this time, which actually turned out to be absolutely on the effing money, but a couple years back before, he was teasing some exciting news. https://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/384824531358990337

And several times he had other news in the close time after that, he made a point to reply to fans that wasn't the big announcement he was talking about. https://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/385418914336751618

And then about 2 months after that last reply, when the Indy rights situation got settled between Paramount and Disney, he posted "Long time coming, but here's the BIG NEWS." https://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/409094696254730240

It could be interpreted that those earlier comments were both in reference to that agreement, which from his perspective could have been unexpectedly delayed.

(And yes, I've been sitting on this information since it happened. It is literally the only reason I've ever considered it relevant to share his teases here.)

All you fake Indy fans can start eating that crow, lame-oids. How does it taste?

1/2 the time. Seems like it's significant about 1/2 the time, which is the nature of Twitter. (Un)Thankfully for most of us here, his teaser turned out to be a positive turn for those that feel we need another Indy film with Harrison and Spielberg.

Spielberg is my favorite director of all time but he's lost his touch. He's not the same guy he was in the 80s. He's grown soft and been way too overly reliant on CGI. Based on his work from the last 10 years, I feel we'll be lucky if Indy V is only marginally better than KOTCS.

I just don't see Spielberg taking the risks he would have taken in the 80s and 90s. I think more realistically, we're in for another KOTCS. The story may be more fleshed out this time, and possibly more entertaining, but I'd bet anything the film will look almost exactly like KOTCS.

Speaking of which, his more recent films all look the same. They all have that same faded, washed out look. That's definitely not how his older films, or the original Indy trilogy looked. It's how KOTCS looked, and pretty much every film he's done since then. So I don't see any reason why Indy V will be any different, unfortunately.

I'm hoping for the best and willing to give Spielberg another shot at getting the series back on track, but based on history, I don't think it's likely at all. Not to mention how lazy and hyper over-reliant Hollywood is nowadays with CGI. Ugh. Why would any of this suddenly change now?

Completely agree.

I think the odds of Spielbgerg/Koepp/Kaminski delivering a better film than KOTCS are prohibitively long.
