Harrison Ford to don his fedora and whip one last time as Indiana Jones 5 comes our way in 2022

1 min read

There may be multiple James Bond, Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man actors, but there is only one Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford. And the good news is that Disney has confirmed that it will be Ford returning for their upcoming fifth instalment of the franchise. And also sadly, that this will be his last time ever donning the iconic fedora and trademark whip.

The news broke at the recent Disney Investor Presentation where the studio confirmed that this final journey for Ford will be releasing in July 2022. We’ve already known that this next Indiana Jones film will be helmed by Logan and Ford v Ferrari director James Mangold, who will now get a chance – much like he did with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine – to close the chapter on an iconic character (probably producing even more tears this time around).

It’s not clear exactly what the movie will entail, though given how much Disney likes making money off its franchises, there may be some younger characters in tow for Indy to pass his torch to. Of course, that tactic was already tried and failed with 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and it’s hard to imagine anyone being as charismatic in the role as the 78-year-old Ford himself.

It is an end of an era with Ford having said goodbye to his famous character Han Solo five years ago and now getting an opportunity to say goodbye to arguably his most famous character of all. Let’s hope this fifth film in the franchise gives him the rousing send-off he deserves and can remind us that there is still plenty of life left in finding relics and shooting Nazis (or whichever Nazi-type bad guys we will get this time).

    Old man waves cane at archaeological grad student and can’t understand why you can’t just loot a digsite any more, and run away with all the treasures.

    Old man Jones discovers an ancient ruin that can enable him to go back in time.
    He goes back in time and simply just shoots the Russian lady from Kingdom of the Crystal skull, thus preventing that story from ever happening.

    He then pops back into the 2020 time where a bunch of activists are protesting outside his office for his continual raiding of ancient places. He then spends the rest of the film going back to all the places he has ruined and putting the artifacts back where they belong.

      You forgot a part there.

      Old Man Jones runs into his long lost love and stays in the past…because if he stays there is is ok it wont change future events because this time line is not the same as the one he came from so his future self will still grow up to be a tomb raider

    sry, but it’s called a Panama Hat. the brim is wider than a Fedora, but not as wide as a Stetson (cowboy hat)

      You’re actually 100% correct. My uncle had one of those. It’s definitely not a fedora (yuck) or a stetson. It’s a panama hat.

        I am not PC, but I have to nitpick this. Fedoras are for hipsters, incels, and anyone who thinks wearing one will increase their attractiveness by 100%

          Nah, I know how you feel, hipsters ruined the fedora, and I vowed to never wear one. I especially hate the version with the shortened brim. What’s the purpose of a shortened brim? Especially if you live in South Africa, and given the summers we have. You just look like a douche if you wear one.

          I’ll just say It, it’s the hat for douches, who also kill their sperm count with their skinny jeans or colourful Woolworth’s grandma shorts.
