Mads Mikkelsen Joins Indiana Jones 5 In Undisclosed Role

In addition to Ford and Waller-Bridge, a new report from Deadline says Mads Mikkelsen joins Indiana Jones 5 as well. I don’t need to tell you who Mads Mikkelsen is, he’s been in Star Wars, The MCU, and played Hannibal Lecter. Mikkelsen is also set to become a mainstay of the Harry Potter Universe. Mads will replace Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts movies. What other franchise are left for Mikkelsen to join? Has he been in Star Trek yet, maybe that’s next on Mikkelsen’s bucket list?

However, Mikkelsen can cross Indiana Jones of that list, because he will be one of the lead characters in Indiana Jones 5. How do we know he will be one of the lead characters, because like Phoebe Waller-Bridge, his attachment at this point tells us it’s an important role. Could Mikkelson be playing the antagonist in Indy 5? Details on his role are still kept under wraps but I think most fans would probably jump to antagonist conclusions. However, just because we jump to those conclusions doesn’t validate them. We’re going to have to wait a little longer to find out who Mikkelsen is playing in Indy 5.

We know very little about Indiana Jones 5 other than the team getting together. James Mangold will direct, Spielberg will now serve as an executive producer, and Johnny Williams is back on the drums. To be honest I’m still not sure what Lucasfilm are going to do once Williams eventually retires. Star Wars, or Indy without Williams is like taking John Bonham out of Led Zeppelin. After Bonham’s tragic death in 1980 Zep never played together again until his son filled in for a one time concert in 2007.

At least we get one more to add to the Williams catalogue at least. As for Mad Mikkelson, I think he’s brilliant so always happy to see him in anything. I hope his character (if the antagonist) is written better than Cate Blanchett’s was in the Indy film we don’t talk about.
