There has a lot of buzz around the internet about the fate of Indy in the 5th movie. Showbizspy reported that Ford wants to kill off his famed archeologist in the upcoming 5th installment of the legendary film series, which is still being planned out.

Representatives of Harrison Ford reached out to The Huffington Post today to deny these claims. The claims were that insider's revealed “Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one"

"George [Lucas] especially is resisting the notion but Steven [Spielberg] is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn't have all the say though."

Indy seems to have made another death-defying stunt to beat the rumours of Ford wanting to knock him off. More importantly though, is the franchise going to survive? It's no secret that fans of the timeless original trilogy were dissatisfied with the most recent addition Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Even Shia LaBeouf has openly expressed his disappointment with the movie saying they "dropped the ball on the legacy."

In that movie, I just felt sort of pigeonholed. Like I didn't have enough meat to chew on," he continued. "I just feel like we were trying to enforce innocence on an audience that wasn't willing. You can't force things, you know?

As shown in our other article, Mistakes are there to learn from, as long as Hollywood is committed to improve by listening to their fans, maybe we will be able to enjoy a sequel without the fear that it will taint our DVD boxsets.

Most fans are sceptical about whether the 5th Indiana Jones movie will be able to mirror the appeal of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Will they still be loyal to the brand if it continues to disappoint? Shia Labeouf seems confident they won't.

If you drop the ball twice, it's over for you.

Personally, I feel torn between my desire to see Indy back in action(Harrison Ford's still got it baby!) and the reality of them creating another great installment of the franchise and erase the 5th film from our memories.
