Pretty much all that exists in Hollywood these days are superhero franchises, because they are the only things that are reliably bankable. Which, hey, fuck it. I watched the Tobey Macguire Spidermans but not the Andrew Garfield ones and my life wasn’t affected any which way.

Do what you want, Hollywood. But with pretty much every superhero taken, you just knew movie producers would soon reboot non-superheros as well. Which again is fine, because it lets me write the next sentence.

Chris Pratt might be Indiana Jones.

How fucking dope would that be? First off, it’s a hundred million times better than Shia LaBeouf, who they were originally going to build the franchise around. No, Chris Pratt would make an amazing Indiana Jones. He would beat the shit out of some Nazis.

Here’s Deadline:

Here’s one from the helluva good idea department. Marvel offerings are soaring and Star Wars  is being reinvigorated by director JJ Abrams. Now, Disney has just started to turn its attention to reviving the Indiana Jones franchise after buying the rights from Paramount in 2013. I’m cautioned that while things are very early, I hear the studio has set its sights on Chris Pratt as the swashbuckling archaeologist they hope to build the new franchise around, the role made famous by Harrison Ford in Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Now let’s queue up that theme song and get hyped for this.

A fifth Indiana Jones is reportedly already in the works.
