Are you thinking like a James Bond-type treatment? That would have been interesting injecting a new actor for Indy in subsequent films. The new actors would always be judged by the Ford die-hards, but that was a fun part of James Bond as well. Everyone has a favorite.

I enjoyed 1 and 3 the best. I get what they were trying to do in 2, but it just didn't land for me with dark tone, over the top gore, and then a slapstick moments all just felt disjointed. 3, despite some of its cringe moments was still a fun ride and felt like Indiana Jones much more than 2 did.
I think it could have been done with Ford and then maybe later in the series he passes the torch to a younger actor (son/nephew type of fellow adventurer). Really hard to imagine anyone else as Indy - other than the younger version on the old TV series.

I'm a huge Marvel Comics guy and what fueled my interest in an ongoing series was most likely this comic book series that I collected back in the day:

I remember buying those when it first came out. It was very good. My local bookstore was terrible at getting every issue though, so I think I just eventually gave up.

This is going to be so awful, and the trailer gives credence to all the leaks and if true will destroy yet another franchise. Disney just can't help itself.
Then they'll follow it up with an Indiana Jones TV show on Disney+...

Joel was this an attempt at a joke? If so, I would say... you choose... poorly.
Be honest, did you even giggle in the slightest bit?

I actually didn’t understand the joke and just wanted to make my own Indy joke in return!

Watched the trailer and was a bit puzzled by it. Parts of it made it look like a clearly 80-year old Indiana Jones was still fighting WW2 German Nazis. Is the suggestion that this is story (or at least part of it) is supposed to still be set in the 1940s and we aren't supposed to notice he's an elderly man?

I think it’s Nazis are still around
