During his appearance on NBC’s Today on Friday, Harrison Ford revealed he hopes nobody else will play Indiana Jones after he retires from the role.
Over ten years after the release of the underwhelming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford are hoping to give the famous archeologist a proper send-off with a fifth Indiana Jones film. However, some fans are already speculating on what the future could hold for Indiana Jones after Harrison Ford retires from the role, with some suspecting a younger actor could succeed Ford as the character.
When discussing the legacy of Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford was asked who he would like to see take over the role once his time as Indy comes to an end. However, Harrison Ford insisted the character will leave with him:
“Nobody is gonna be Indiana Jones. Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. […] When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy.”
Harrison Ford followed-up his comments by evidently confusing Chris Pratt, who was once rumored to be a contender for the role of Indiana Jones, with another famous Chris by saying, “This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this. I’m sorry, man.”
The fifth Indiana Jones will be directed by Steven Spielberg and marks Lucasfilm’s first entry in the franchise while under the Disney umbrella. John Williams is attached to write the score after having previously lent his talent to the past four chapters of the film series.
Indiana Jones 5 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on July 9, 2021.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
