Indiana Jones 5 Now Pushed Back to 2021

I don't really see how her typical characters would fit into an Indy film. So hopefully she's doing something a bit different.

Judging by the people who run Lucasfilm, she'll probably be a character designed to upstage Indy. He'll be a ****ed off old man in retirement. She'll seek out the "Great Indy" to help her on a quest. Only to be disillusioned by meeting him. He'll reluctantly be made to help but really add very little to the whole adventure. He'll bring forth some knowledge, only to have the new character then expand upon it and make the brilliant conclusions. She'll solve the puzzles and Indy will gruff lines like, "How'd you do that?"

We'll get the apparently mandatory Disney scene where the character punches a big jacked dude in the face, knocking him out. Maybe the cliche, Indy will be over powered by men and she'll break a vase on one of their heads saving him.

I really like Fleabag, I really am curious to see what the character will be.

It would not suprise me if it went that way. As long as Kennedy is there, I would say this scenario is fairly plausible unfortunately. I have very little faith in this project because of the people running Lucasfilm at the moment. I get that Ford isn't getting any younger but I hope the movie can be delayed long enough for Kennedy to ride off into the sunset and new blood comes in. Of course the heads at Disney would make the hiring decision so I guess its still a question mark.

although not bad, just make it better than kingdom of the crystal skull

It's been years since I watched it, but that film never turned the corner where I don't care and can enjoy it for what it is. There was just a whole pile of mistakes, and I mean mistakes. Not choices I disagree with but absolutely wrong decisions in the scripting and film making that ruined that film. Where basically the same script with a few different choices in execution of the film would have made the film a whole lot better. I'm not even talking about the fridge, the film was still enjoyable at that point. Although they over did the animation of the fridge flying through the shockwave.

Things like, the design of the Crystal Skulls and showing a dead alien early in the film. Absolute mistake. The film would have worked better if there was some mystery around the skulls, their origin, man made or alien, do they have power. The CGI alien at the end, nope. Yet they could have still had the epic shot of Indy and the UFO.

Spielbergs decision to shoot it how he'd have shot a film in 1980, with the same type of cinematography made the film look like garbage. Shooting lots of stuff on sets that could have been location, would have been location in the originals but lighting them to look like sets was dumb. Then shooting CGI heavy sequences, how you'd shoot them before CGI was invented means they look horrid. As you're not incorporating all the tools and tricks needed to make CGI heavy sequences look good.

Here's a psychic Russian spy, who then isn't psychic? Or is? Well anyway she follows them by finding a trail of Christmas tree lights in the jungle.

Marrion just intentionally with purpose drives a car off a cliff into a tree to ascend a cliff. There's no sense of danger when those high risk moves are done with intent, knowing they'd work.

Anyway, I could go on and I haven't even mentioned the Shia of it all.
