It’s still hard to believe, but Disney’s current plan is that Indiana Jones 5 opens next year. Specifically the July 29, 2022, which has been a shock to a project so far mired in doubts and postponements. The output of Steven Spielberg as director did not contribute to improve the situation, but according to James Mangold took over the reins and the House of the Mouse dared to launch an official premiere date during last Investor Day the procedures have accelerated theirs. Thus, in the last few days we have known that Phoebe Waller-Bridge Y Mads Mikkelsen they were going to be next to Harrison Ford at the head of the film, and it is not the only novelty when it comes to the cast.
As collected The Wrap, the provisionally titled Indiana Jones 5 has also signed Thomas Kretschmann, a German actor you may remember from the Marvel Universe for playing Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in Captain America: The Winter Soldier Y Avengers: Age of Ultron. Beyond the MCU, Kretschmann has also been in the King Kong from Peter Jackson, The pianist from Roman Polanski Y U-571, in addition to appearing in series such as 24, Westworld O Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. As with Waller-Bridge and Mikkelsen, details of the character he would play have not yet been given.
Given his origin and the kind of enemy that Indy usually fights with, there are already those who think that Kretschmann would incarnate a Nazi infiltrated after the defeat in World War II, perhaps hidden in the New York of the 60s where some would take place. of the events of Indiana Jones 5. It’s too early to tell, in any case. The script of the film has passed through the hands of David Koepp Y Jonathan Kasdan before being rewritten by Mangold himself in the company of Jez Y John-Henry Butterworth, and the music returns to run on account of John Williams.
