That ob­tainer of rare an­tiq­ui­ties is back – and he still looks like Har­ri­son Ford

In­di­ana Jones And The…? You say what you want from the fifth film.

LIS­TEN UP, SPIEL­BERG AND FORD! PAY AT­TEN­TION TO WHAT OUR READ­ERS WANT OR THEY’LL TURN YOU INTO RELICS!

AC­KNOWL­EDGE THE FRAN­CHISE’S HIS­TORY

1 There’s been a lot of years and mileage since Raiders Of The Lost Ark, but you want the filmmakers to make sure they hark back to what made the first three movies clas­sics. “A John Wil­liams score, lots of snakes and spi­ders, epic land­scapes, creepy tombs, huge stunts and some witty one- lin­ers,” sug­gests Laura Meakin.

SEND THE aliens HOME

2 The King­dom Of The Crys­tal Skull’s ex­trater­res­trial McGuf­fin an­noyed the hell out of you, prompt­ing loud calls for a re­turn to quests for re­li­gious arte­facts. “The se­ries seems to work best with Bib­li­cal relics but what’s left?” asks Tom Gray. [ We’ve got some ideas on p23 – Ed]. “The Li­brar­ian nicked the Spear of Des­tiny. The True Cross, per­haps?”

QUAL­ITY VIL­LAINS

3 On the sub­ject of bad­dies, one word crops up more than any other: “Nazis”. Un­less Indy bumps into his old foes on the run in Ar­gentina, how­ever, some of you think it would be bet­ter if the movie pits him against Soviet en­e­mies. “Given the prob­a­ble time pe­riod it’s got to be the USSR,” says Richard Martin. “Maybe Spiel­berg could draft in his Bridge Of Spies mate Mark Ry­lance?”

FAREWELL MUTT

4 Aside from the aliens and nuked fridges, the thing you def­i­nitely don’t want to see back is Shia LaBeouf as Indy’s son, Mutt Wil­liams. “No Shia LaBeouf for the love of god!” yells Troy Kessler.

MAKE SURE IT’S GOOD!

5 King­dom Of The Skull was a painful ex­pe­ri­ence for many fans – so you’re putting a lot of pres­sure on Indy 5 to re­deem the fran­chise. “It would be great for the Indy saga to end on a good, strong story, that also serves as a nice con­clu­sion for the char­ac­ter,” sug­gests Gary Mancini. “That said, I don’t want Indy killed off, just a re­tire­ment.”
