Easy Killer!

All I did was ask if anyone thought Indy could be a Democrat or a Republican, since he is an American in the films. As for him being 100% American, yeah that is kind of a broad generalization. He is a worldly character, but at the end of the day he is an American in the films, and a distinguished college professor who would also be poitically savvy!

Are you serious? I don't know where you're from, but I'm an American, and I wouldn't give a crap if some British people wanted to play around with which of their political parties Indy might belong to. I doubt any of the other Americans here would, either.

The fact is, Indiana Jones is a Hollywood franchise, made by Americans, starring an American. Those are just truths. If Americans want to speak of Indiana Jones in an American context, what on earth is wrong with that? You are way too high strung, and your comments speak much more of your own biases than any others.

Noone should be ashamed for his/her nationality, but it's valid to be ashamed of stuff that is or has been done in the name of the nation you belong to.

I'm Norwegian and definitely not proud of Vidkun Quisling, nor am I particularily proud of those of my predecessors who robbed, raped and killed their way through much of Europe and parts of Russia a millennium ago. (They shaped up when they found out that trading and marrying into the local aristocracy were less cumbersome, gave better PR and paid better in the long run) I don't feel any pride over those of my countrymen who were active participants in the slave trade either (they served, often as officers, on Norwegian freighters under the Danish flag)

Indy is undoubtedly American and the stories are filtered through mythos shaped in America - but he transcends the labels so that we can all identify, no matter our cultural and national background.

That's George Lucas' real genius; as with Star Wars, he's really retelling old stories known in one form or another found all over the world (a snip from here and a snip from there; add new wrapping and a few quirks) in a way most of us have no problem being (wildly!!) enthusiastic about.

Perhaps,I did jump the gun a little bit.The ''100% American" comment was made in the heat of the moment,I guess.It was meant in regards to the character himself,Not the franchise..If anyone thought that...


Alright...Move along,Move along.

The site now says, "Presented by Iron Man".

Maybe Paramount will unleash trailers for all its summer tent-poles (hopefully including Indy 4) during the game.

I didn't think that and I understood what you meant.

On subject: I'm quite sure we will see the trailer during the SuperBowl. They'd be crazy not to take advantage of the mass, all ages audience.

The NFL's core demographic (White Male thirtysomethings) perfectly overlaps Indy's main fan base. Heck, this board supports a couple NFL threads a year and even a humble FF league.

Watching the Jaguars/Steelers game last night, I didn't see anyting Indy related -- but I did chuckle over this Toyota spot -- even if I am just outside the target audience.
