#1 Great - trash another franchise (like Ghostbusters) with insipid broad(s) as lead actresses. Harrison Ford's too old for these lead roles - give it to Ryan Reynolds or someone like that.

#2 Kathleen Kennedy is the one that wokified and ruined Star Wars, amongst other films. Horrible person. And Flip The Script male to female means failure. Look at the horrible Ghostbusters failure. Get woke go broke.

#3 In a world where the West is, like, "Wow,"
Lands a man with no PLAN ["Huh?" Kerpow!]
Known as "Jones, Short Round Jones,"
Who makes off with the stones
Of the Magical Mangos of Mao.

#4 The English actress, 37, could be replacing Harrison Ford as the lead in the fifth installment of the "Indiana Jones" franchise, which is set to hit theaters next summer, according to The Daily Mail.


....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHANo.

If it's hitting theaters next summer, primary photography is done or nearly so.

Secondly, I think Disney might have figured out that Ms. Kennedy cost them a billion or so in revenue, not to mention the goodwill of countless fans. Easier (and cheaper) to leave her where she is, but under really close watch.

I can see this being Ford's last outing as Indy and someone else stepping in to continue the franchise, but I doubt it's going to be Ms. Waller-Bridge. She's a terrific writer and a very funny actress, but she's not an action heroine.

#5 this is the broad that voiced the robot that Lando liked banging, right?

figures.

I think they were setting up Shia LeBeouf to be the next Indy, as his son, in the last 'film'

but Shia has the chemistry and acting skills of a wet mop (most of the time; he was passible in Fury, disregarding the horrible southern accent).

#8 speaking of Kathleen Kennedy I'm reminded of Indiana Jones saying,

"Why must it always be snakes?"

#10 Thank God Peter Jackson made the LOTR movies before this idiocy was widespread.

#11 Meh, go ahead. One more Disney movie I won't watch or even bother to pirate as it will be garbage.

#12 The last one was horribly bad and purged from memory, not going to watch another, anyway. And this sort of thing is why America is starting to ignore hollywood.

#14 I never finished watching the first Aquaman. How'd it turn out?

Spoiler Alert: Aquaman's super-power is that he can talk to fish.

Honestly, I've never seen it. I fricken' hate super-hero movies. Super-powers are the lamest writer's crutch since I don't know what.
