Why James Mangold may be the right choice to bring the character of Indiana Jones to where he should be for what may be one final adventure

Steven Spielberg is handing over the reins for the fifth film in the franchise.

and most recently, the Oscar-nominated Ford v Ferrari , ooze grit and edge. Logan is the best example of taking an iconic character, but evolving them to be in their place in time. One of the biggest complains of Crystal Skull was the old Indy formula felt out of step. Harrison Ford's character had not evolved since last we saw him. He was given his jacket, hat and whip, and placed right back into the same old setting, which just didn't work so well with a 66-year-old Ford. Logan showed us a Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Prof. X (Patrick Stewart) who were at the end of the line. They were vulnerable. They were not as powerful as they once were. They had to examine their roles in a world that had moved on without them. Indiana Jones should never go as dark as Logan , but the property should allow Indy to grow, to adapt and to question his place in the world. There were also complains Crystal Skull 's action seemed diluted from the previous installments; too family-friendly. The character spent the first three films trying to escape from those who wanted to kill him and, in turn, he had to kill to survive. This was lacking in Crystal Skull as deaths were usually silly and incidental. With Logan in particular, Mangold understands the kill or be killed hero motif quite well. Indiana Jones films, while full of adventure and some laughs, are at the end of the day are violent, sometimes downright bloodthirsty. Mangold could be the right choice to bring the character of Indiana Jones to where he should be for what may be one final adventure. Disney is set to release the film July 9, 2021.

Why does it have to be the final adventure, Indiana Jones could become a James Bond type character RealRonHoward Are you SURE Mangold is the right choice and not Ron Howard? 😴😢😧 My JAWS scripts good✊😎 Los Angeles Jack “Jewel Of The Jungle” ... I wrote a few years ago.. They destroyed star wars now it's IJ time, I see.

Ford vs Ferarri was whip-smart and flawless filmmaking. Give it to Mangold while i go get popcorn. I'll take it! Indy spends decades traveling the world looking for a socialist utopia, but fails miserably, goes back to LA and tells everyone realDonaldTrump and BorisJohnson are the true saviours of western civilisation being destroyed by the poisonous left and their disgusting PC wokeness

Fingers crossed. Crystal Skull was sacrilege! IndianaJones
