  1. I’m excited to see what Fox does with the X-Men reboot. So much potential.

  2. I’m super excited about Indy 5!

    • I wonder if Harrison is just going through all his iconic characters and killing them off. :/ That’s the only thing I’m worried about. I kinda think Indy could lend himself to being a U.S. Bond, just recast and continue with his adventures. What do you think?
