Post [NOT-Quadrilogy (Bad! Bad!) BUT] Tetralogy Indy Cameo(s) what do you think?

Not going to talk Indy 5 here as is my wont. The thread title pretty much says it all. How cool would it be for Indy to make an appearance in another film/franchise? It's kind of too bad it hasn't happened before (besides in the YIJC, which doesn't really count). Used sparingly, or even just mentioned in another film as a real character would be epic. Some life outside of the 4 films would be a fun and awesome way to flesh out his character and expand on the Indy Canon. Your thoughts, please.

EDIT: Plus, it could be done without the horrifyingly long wait-times for his own franchise.

Alien.

Predator.

Batman.

Hellboy - this one could be a perfect fit.

I think it would be great to randomly acknowledge his character in almost any fitting period piece, or bring up a reference to his exploits in some kind of archival way. Kind of like an uber-Wilhelm. Ground a film into the escapist filmverse, while expanding the Indyverse at the same time.

Tetralogy, tetralogy...

Well, Captain America already had the "digging in the desert" reference, but I think it's fair to say that his world is decidedly not the same as Indy's.

Indy artifacts have already had cameos in the Star Wars universe.

Not quite the same yet. But with one final push George'll get there.

Gamma rays from 1957 will not only have made him younger and fitter, but also changed his appearance beyond recognition. He'll no longer be the silver surfer riding his refrigerator, but a brand new hat-wearing adventurer to carry forward the legacy.

His staff is too short. He's digging in the wrong place!

He could have been in Wolverine Origins...Wolverine mentioned Indy in Uncanny X-Men 268.

Did he actually mention Indy, or dress in a similar style?



I'll have to look that comic up now.

EDIT:

Remembered I had it on disc. Couldn't see a reference on a quick run through.


Almost a direct reference here, though:



Though by this time it would be old Indy getting the joke.

Here is a link to the original art with the page in X-Men 268 where Wolverine references Indy.http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryP...587&GSub=16168

Thanks, I see it now. I was only looking at the pages where he was in the Indy-inspired gear.



It's another reference to Indy as existing in the popular culture of the Marvel universe. So I don't know if Wolverine is referencing the film ROTLA or Indy as an existing person, whom he may have met.

Soooo. Am I right in thinking that the answer to my original post is one that no one is going to respond to directly or take seriously?

I've noticed a trend around here lately that serious discussion has gone the way of the dodo.

No offense, but when the thread title takes a refuge in hilarity...

No offense, either. But are you referring to the current thread title that was MOD-ified without a footnote? I was dead serious with my original title. Only giving more weight to my previous assertion that serious discussion is out the window, Finn.

While I'm not the mod who started to harp on it, I can't help but recommend you consider this a Greek lesson to be taken to the heart.

Please speak clearly on this one. If I wanted murky metaphors, I'd talk to my wife rather than post here.

See post #7 in this thread.

Simply put, tetralogy (which refers to number "four" in Greek) is the proper word to describe a four-part-series. "Quadrilogy" is technically nothing more than a butchered modernization somebody derived from Latin because it apparently sounds cooler or something.

I gave you four solid possibilities in post #2.

It's only a fantasy thread anyway.

Besides, the board already went to hell in a handbasket.

If what George reads has any credence, that's not a permanent state.



Joining Indy with another franchise, even on this level, is something of a risk, since that more or less weds him to being in their same fictional universe. As Indy's world is more or less our own, with some quirks of mysticism and physics, and also is one that inescapably takes place in given periods, the opportunities for such crossovers seem slim.

To take the Captain America example, the rendering of 1930s technology, including the World's Fair, seems to not fit in with what we know of Indy's world. Strangest technology we've met in the films are the flying wing and the jungle cutter.

He's mentioned quite a lot already, though not as though he's a real person...

The Hangover
Thank You for Smoking
What Happens in Vegas
Notting Hill
Marvin's Room
...of course Fanboys.

If you're really intent on bringing him into something as though he were real, I wouldn't mind seeing old Indy show up on an episode of American Pickers. That would be fun.

A serious reference might be cool in one of the TV shows like Burn Notice or any Mission Impossible-esque series in terms of some past WWII mission.

Check out the Walter Donovan/Henry Ford thread, that is until dancing baby stumbles in.
