    Here's pretty much the only one-set stuff we have of her in character BTW (presumably during a break in filming, I don't think dome cups were necessarily a late 60's thing) :

    Part of me wonders if we will get a Ghostbusters 2016 situation in the future where those of us who had no intention of seeing that film are painted as misogynists , trolls etc. Even though we liked the actors (I did like all those involved from SNL ). I shall always remember that one where we'd be sitting there watching people get angry on how "we didn't give the film a chance !"
    If you're fine with them having a male take over the franchise but think a woman doing so would "ruin it" then yes, I'd say that's misogynistic/sexist. Same as if you thought the Ghostbusters 2016 was ruined due simply to having all female leads, as opposed to the actual film itself being bad regardless of who would have starred in it.

    There's been a few attempts at female Bond spinoffs here and there, and Bond is sort of a "spiritual father" to Indy in a sense (hence in part Connery's casting in Last Crusade). Although Bond's a bit more of a legacy character given he's been played by multiple actors and has been rebooted once (And the original 20 films had extremely loose continuity anyway), while pretty much Indy is identified with Ford, even if you factor in Young Indy a bit).

    Hey, so, from the article you posted afterward, can you quote any bit of that that includes the words “Lara” or “Croft”? Apparently I’m an idiot and can’t read.
    I can;t even understand this ?

    Isn't this what people use to say they wanted?

    Don't gender swap or race swap a character create a new character who is a female or POC in the franchise.

    Well that's what they did.
    They tried it with Mutt and again I'm not a fan of it here. As people pointed out about people wanting mantles changed for the pure hell of it.

Sure, Indy did a fair amount of punching during the film, but not a lot of other physical stuff apart from maybe the opening, which even then kind of focused on how he wasn't exactly in his prime ("Not as easy at it used to be" "Damn! I thought that was closer!")

    Han Solo was easier for him to reprise in part because it's pretty much running, shooting and piloting the Falcon I think, not swinging, riding horses and jumping around (Yeah I know stunt performers did a lot of that, but still the role seemed to be highly physical even for Ford).
    Someone brought up that Ford was seen with dots on his face with a belief he'll be CGI'd face wise on a young stunt man who does the stunt. Given modern technology.

    The 4th one really made me quit. I had heard about a 5th Indy film awhile and even I felt they should recast and do Indy stores set in the era he worked best in. I heard Ford was coming back and even I wondered how he could do a 5th movie near 80 years old. Then this hit and It justified the not seeing it.

    See this was never said at all. None of this was said at all PERIOD. Scan back posts. You literally didn't even read the Ghostbusters post at all really which was...'I enjoyed them on SNL..."

    The trailer was terrible for Ghostbusters. That 1st trailer was one that made no sense and really made me not care to watch it Even though Wiig , Jones and McKinnon are great on SNL ..they weren't good from what I saw in trailer.

    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.

    I think its a lot like Doctor Who with Bond. You can do a female Bond as we have seen a female M or Q . I felt like Dr. Who was solid for casting Whitaker then to smash the whole "A woman can't do this role." But even Tom Baker said it when he left that a man or woman could be cast and it was long overdue.

    Bond , yeah I could see a woman kicking ass onscreen as a female James Bond. I wouldn't be against it. Since we have seen that Bond has had guys age wise range from 30's to 50's. Plus his supporting cast has changed.

    (Maybe Bond #26 will see that happen)

    Okay before Indy is "Replaced" one thing has to happen.

    This film has to be a hit then even if that happens for a franchise to be built with the new female character her 1st solo film has to be a hit. If both of those things don't happen guess what? Then you get Ghostbusters 2016 which now got us Ghostbusters 2021/2022 whenever it's coming out which looks good. So if Indy 5 or a female spinoff fails we eventually get the Indy reboot (It's Disney they're going to reboot eventually).

    But does anyone really want that more? As mentioned Ford is Indy to many so why not wish the best for the Phoebe Waller-Bridge female character. If she's a fun character and it goes well then Ford could still appear as Indy in a supporting role. Ford has said he will wear the hat until his grave if asked and wouldn't that be better than Ford being replaced as Indy?

    I do. I want a recast and more Indy adventures fighting Nazis. Why wouldn't I want that more? Some legacy character isn't better, no.

    I actually liked the new Ghostbusters trailer. Seeing the connections and all of grand kids of Egon. I mean , it may suck once I do see it. But I loved that trailer we saw recently more than the 2016 trailer. The one now makes me want to see this torch passed.

    Good thing I never said you DID say that. I said "if" and I was speaking of "you" in a general sense, not directly. But that still doesn't explain away your comments on this topic.

    I had to go back...and look...and weirdly I copied the CBR link to main page. And it kept the YT link I had discussed in Wrestling thread. That is weird and I never noticed it til you posted.

    I've said it before but I think Indy could work in animation if they ever wanted to go the flashback route. KOTCS said he did a ton of stuff during World War II so I'd be interested in seeing that in some form.


    However, the Indy EU is somewhat tiny compared to something like Star Wars. A lot of the KOTCS merchandise for example went almost straight to the bargain bin or was cancelled due to low sales/relegated to convention exclusives etc.

    KOTCS = Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? I don't know why you're comparing that to Star Wars EU, because as a film it wasn't "expanded" universe, it was regular canon universe.
