Harrison Ford revealed he wants Indiana Jones 5 to deliver an experience on par with Marvel films.

Roughly four years after Disney had purchased Lucasfilm, the company announced that Harrison Ford was set to reprise his role as Indiana Jones for a fifth installment of the famous archeologist’s film series. However, Indiana Jones 5 has since been pushed back to the summer of 2021 and has seen writers including David Koepp and Jonathan Kasdan come and go as the creative team attempts to deliver a satisfying script.

With production on Indiana Jones 5 scheduled to begin this year, Harrison Ford revealed he hopes the film can follow from the example of Marvel projects during an interview with HeyUGuys. While Harrison Ford did not divulge details on Indiana Jones 5, he did note that he wants to give fans something they aren’t anticipating and that the Marvel films offer an example of movies delivering satisfying experiences for audiences:

“I don’t really want to give them what they want to see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate. They are used to a degree of disappointment when you revisit. Certainly, the Marvel movies have made a spectacular example of a success of worked the other way around, they killed it! Well, we’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we are in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best. We’ve got some scheduling issues and a few script things to do but we are determined to get it right before we get it made.”
