    Barry and Hal are not legacies in the traditional sense, never have been. They're about the worst you can do in arguing for legacies they're so far removed from the basic concept as it is usually done and thought of. And Kamala doesn't quite count either because Carol is still a main character superhero with Marvel in her name. It's kind of easy to argue for legacy when you focus on the least legacy-like legacies there is.

    3) On a personal note, I'd be all over this (in the highly unlikely event there's a grain of truth in it). Though I consider myself pretty liberal, in all honesty, my reasons for being pro-female casting are probably more shallow/superficial ones. Ultimately, I'd just always rather see a woman in a kick-ass action role than a bloke.
    I don't know your gore tolerance, but if you want to see more of that you should go watch James Wan new movie Malignant (if you haven't already).

    - Original Story with a unique concept

    - Female lead cast, with the main relationship focusing on familial love and not romantic love

    - Amazing and creative action scenes

    - self aware and campy tone

    But if it's made, a woman starring as the lead is not going to inherently ruin anything. it could still be bad, but not for that reason. And if it's bad or becomes popular in its own right, it won't erase the originals anyway, so the internet doesn't need to freak out too much (but we know it will).
    If it's a hit, franchise it to shit.

    Personally, I've never been big on the Indiana Jones franchise. The franchise hasn't been relevant for a long time anyway, so I'd rater Disney just spend their billions on an original movie concept.

    So a big rumor on the script one channel is claiming is a RUMOR.....ok...here it is. Take in mind its a rumor at this stage.


    -


    -



    -



    -



    - Indy (Ford) and the Walker Bridge character chase the villain in this (played by Antonio Banderas) to Stonehenge as he has a relic. Its he opens a portal with this object there. Which has the Bridge character and Indy follow him into this magic portal.


    - Now this is where things go even more loopy insane for an Indiana Jones film. The duo emerge in World War II in 1940's.


    - Later they get in a trap and battle the Banderas character and get an assist from....YOUNG INDY ! Yes young Indiana Jones with deep fake technology arrives to help the older version of himself and Bridge. During this young Indy has some object placed on him and he ...disappears. Older Indy hands his hat to Bridge as he's dying and tells her ...its her turn. He disappears as there was no Indiana Jones now and its just Bridge as the character.


    - The film ends with a To Be Continued ....ON Disney+ .



    -


    - This is a rumored script for Indiana Jones V. I'd hope its all false but reads like complete and utter sh-t.


    Again its a rumor. Not a fact.

    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

    Time travel would be even goofier than the last movie. Even Star Wars keeps that at arm's length.

    Yeah I know. I hope its just a stupid rumor. No company could be this legit stupid to throw this in. The erasing the Ford , Indiana Jones from existence would be lighting money on fire comically. (Disney can sell figures and merch of Indiana Jones and characters for years ...etc. Its a franchise set to make money with cartoons etc)

    I don't think Indiana Jones figures have ever been big sellers. The 2008 line (Which was intended to include all four movies) I think did relatively poorly and quickly wound up in the bargain bin, with several of the lines either very rare (Temple of Doom/Last Crusade) or cancelled and only released through conventions (Raiders wave 2). Didn't help that many of the figures weren't the best quality.


    Comic and novel lines have also been fairly poor sellers.

    I have no objection with a spin-off for Phoebe Waller Bridge’s character, just as long as she isn’t literally calling herself Indiana Jones like it’s suddenly her name.

    Indiana itself is a pseudonym, though, as last crusade reveals.

    Yeah but he didn't just pick the name out of a hat, Indy admits that it was the name of a favorite dog from his youth, that he had a lot of fond memories of the dog so it's different...

    I hope that's exactly what they have her do. Indiana is a gender-neutral name. Anyone can be "Indiana Jane" if you believe you can! I predict the series will reach new, brave & stunning heights like never before.

    I can't wait.

    I think I'm ready to move on from this franchise. Like I already have done from Star Wars, Star Trek, and (probably) the MCU.

    I don't buy the time travel "leak" at all.

    I've not see all the SW cartoons but the live action fare doesn't touch time travel. That trope is a strong Star Trek one though.

    Recent photos seem to show Indy and Pheobe's character seemingly parachuting into a Greek/Roman battle-an ancient one. Maybe there's something to the time travel rumors after all. Or maybe it's just a historical flashback shot in the same location. Outside of the comics/video games/novels I don't think Indy had that much to do with the Greek or Roman stuff, although they remain very popular in history/archaeology.

    Film's been delayed nearly a year to Summer 2023. Several Marvel films were also delayed although not nearly as long.


    I think the film was scheduled to open the same weekend as Black Adam, maybe Disney's a little nervous about that? I don't think it's as much a COVID thing since (hopefully) March next year might see the pandemic wind down. Or it could be that there's been some production issues (such as Ford's injury) and they need more time for reshoots and post.
