Deadline reports that Antonio Banderas has joined Indy 5 in an undisclosed role. Indiana Jones 5 has been filming recently all across the U.K. and currently filming in the Scottish City of Glasgow. Bandersas joins an all-star ensemble that includes Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renée Wilson.
When it comes to characters, outside of Jones himself the only rumors we have had so far surround Mads Mikkelsen. Mikkelsen’s character is reportedly the main antagonist and a former Nazi, who by 1969 is working for NASA. We know the 1969 date is accurate because a real historical event is being re-imagined currently in the Glasgow shoot. You can find some set images and previous reports if you follow the rabbit through the related link below. However the crux is that Glasgow is a stand in for New York during the ticker tape parade in 1969 for the return of the Apollo 11 astronauts.
Where Banderas could fit in is completely unknown at this point. Hardly surprising since we also have no idea who any of the other cast members are playing either. Outside of those Mikkelsen rumors anyway. so far there has been no images showing Banderas anywhere near any of the set locations, but then filming hasn’t been going on that long. The first images of Phoebe Waller-Bridge only appeared a few days ago and frankly told us nothing about her character.
The one man we expect to see and haven’t seen much of recently is of course Harrison Ford. Ford injured his shoulder recently in a fight rehearsal and since there have been varying reports about the seriousness of the injury. Filming continues, but will Ford be back to work quickly enough to avoid a hiatus? That remains to be seen.
