Supposedly Mads Mikkelsen is playing Indiana Jones 5’s main villain, a scientist who worked for the Nazi regime and, in the mid-late 1960s, is recruited to aid the United States in its moon landing initiative.
All this isn’t to say that Nazis won’t be part of the movie’s main story either.
Last month, it was reported that Indiana Jones 5 will revolve around the space race, specifically before the Apollo 11 moon landing, which lines up with director James Mangold’s potential time period tease from January.
Assuming this is true, perhaps we’ll also see Mikkelsen’s character during the Indiana Jones 5 flashback sequence, teeing him up as a greater threat when the movie jumps forward a few decades.
