Yes folks, there are some major Indy 5 plot spoilers in the latest set photos to come from shooting. As we know some filming has been taking place in Sicily and we have already shared some images from that shoot previously. However, the last few days have seen one particular rumored plot mechanic show up, and the latest photos basically confirm it.
Before I get into the really SPOILER stuff, here is some more vague images showing Ford and co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge. All these images come from The Daily Mail. However so you can see I am sharing Twitter coverage from Indiana Jones 5 News.
These images show Waller-Bridge’s character helping Indy out of a parachute. However the real SPOILER content lies below, so be warned.

Ok, still with me, I want to first post this rumor from ViewerAnon, who posted this before these latest images appeared.
I heard this a couple months ago and couldn't believe it but someone just confirmed and I feel like I need to say this out loud:
INDIANA JONES 5 is… a time travel movie?

I was not ready to cover this prior as I think I still held out hope it was wrong. However, folks, Indiana Jones 5 is a Time Travel movie. Check out these images of Roman soldiers and boats. We can’t even say, this is maybe a flashback, because we can see Ford in costume in one of the shots. Clearly this is the same place being filmed with Indy and his colleague in parachutes.
If we add what we see here and the earlier images you can see in the link above, we can make some assumptions. It seems like Indy and his unnamed partner are in the past. Given some rumors I have heard, I’ll guess the period of Archimedes. However they also appear to have a plan and we saw a crashed plan around this shoot in those earlier images,. When we add that to the parachutes, it’s not hard to out two and two together.
One would have to guess that Mikkelsen’s Nazi supported wants to go back in time and help the Nazi’s win the war. Indy tries to stop them and ends up away back in ancient Greece. It seems Mikkelsen is also on set, so we have to assume the bad guys are there also. This might not be bang on, but given rumors I have hard and dismissed, plus the evidence we can see with our own eyes, I don’t think it’s far off.
So what do you think of Indiana Jones 5 being a time travel movie. Has Indy finally jumped the shark, or can this actually work? I have my doubts, but as always, I’ll wait to see the movie itself before judging.
Leave any thoughts about these major Indy 5 plot spoilers below as always.
