So the year will be 1971 or thereabouts. What type of 1970s film series will the franchise affectionately morph into? Will they go for a spy story involving an object to be recovered? Should they do the risky thing and recast Mutt so the movie can be just as much if not more about Henry III, who in this or later films goes on to inherit the franchise from Indy? Possibly even his alternate name when Ford retires, so that Indiana Jones never dies? Or will they do the expected and pretend like Skull (though canon, of course) never happened, with Indy already off to somewhere having left Marion and Mutt behind for the Visual Guide to address in a note that turns into a fully canon tie-in novel? Do we finally get to watch The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on Blu-ray for their 30th anniversary next year, with the alternate option of viewing the episodes exactly as aired? Would that mean that Indiana as Ford gets the eyepatch in this film already, thus cementing those segments now in limbo as actual parts of the continuity?
