Harrison Ford is not being "replaced": Indiana Jones 5 director says
"One more time. No one is 'taking over' or replacing Indy or donning his hat nor is he being 'erased' thru some contrivance- and he never was, not not in any cut or script – but trolls will troll – that's how they get their clicks," Mangold replied to a user on Twitter.
"And please don't exhaust me pointing out how once in a while a troll is 'right.' Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now & then. All one has to do is look at set photos & interviews & u get enough info to make wild guesses about a movie plot." The filmmaker concluded, "The [difference] between trolling a-holes & everyone else is they [are] trying to make $ off your feelings about other films & culture war politics.
They push [controversial] guesses as coming from 'sources' to gin up clicks. Let it go. END." The fifth installment of "Number of Destiny" will premiere on June 30, 2023.
