Indiana Jones 5 Would Have Focused On Indy And Marion Had Spielberg Directed

When last we saw Indy, it was 15 years ago when the much-maligned “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” was in theaters. Hated though that movie may be, the ending of the film sees Indy and Marion finally getting married. So, it only makes sense that she would be part of this latest chapter as well. In the movie, Marion and Indy have separated, largely over mutual grief they’re suffering due to their son Mutt (Shia LaBeouf) dying in the Vietnam War. Helena (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) ultimately helps to reunite them in the movie’s closing moments.

Speaking further in the interview, Allen shared her feelings on her role as it exists. Even though it’s smaller, she expressed nothing but happiness for the way things shook out for Marion and Indy.

“I was deeply happy that Marion came back at least the end of their story. If this is indeed truly the last film of this particular group of films — if this is the last story with Harrison as Indy and me as Marion — I was profoundly happy that it didn’t end without them coming back together. That meant a lot to me, to feel like they were going to ride off in the sunset together.”

Unfortunately, we can’t compare what we got to what Spielberg was planning, so it’s hard to know if this was the better outcome. Regardless, Allen seems happy with it and, in the end, Marion and Indy got to ride off into the sunset. That feels appropriate. 

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” is in theaters now.
