Indiana Jones 5 Will Have Nazis Fighting The Character

Set in 1969, Indiana Jones 5 would be seeing a clash between Nazis and the moon landing all on one platform. Harrison Ford‘s hero has been battling Hitler’s hordes ever since Raiders Of The Lost Ark, blocking their schemes, fighting with them, or even just letting them be hoisted by their own petard when dabbling with old fabled artifacts. While the impending film features many new elements, other things remain the same: if Indiana Jones is back in action, so too are some recognizable terrifying forces.

“How ‘ex’ they are is the question. And it gets up Indy’s nose…”

The writer for the film claims that this would be a big run for Indiana Jones and the Nazis, focusing that the man who is so used to looking for treasures and secrets of the world buried deep within time would find himself dealing with the moon landing and astronauts. Being placed decades after the events of World War II, the scattered Nazis would soon find themselves face-to-face with the adventurer. Although he too isn’t fond of them, he seems to be going up against them quite often.

What To Expect From Indiana Jones 5

Both Indy and the villain, as seen with Mads Mikkelsen, would be after a relic that Mikkelsen’s character would be after to render the mistakes of the past. He would so forth find himself in the path of Jones, who would want to get his hands on it as well.
