No word on who Waller-Bridge might be playing, but it must be a large role in the movie. No other cast member have yet been announced and it seems like the script is not yet finalized. Let’s hope Waller-Bridge has some creative input before that script is finished given her experience at writing. As for fan theories well I’ve already heard everything from Indy’s long lost daughter, because we’ve not done that before very recently in an Indy movie. Or, as some have suggested Waller-Bridge could be playing an antagonistic role here for all we know. Finally, maybe she is just some archeologist that Indy works with and gets caught up in his adventures?
I guess we will know more by this time next year given the release date of July 29th, 2022. Let’s just hope we get a better movie that the ill-received Kingdom of the Crystal Skull from James Mangold. Are you a fan of Waller-Bridge, are you pleased Johnny Williams is back for Indy 5?
