Though it does have its share of defenders, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is generally considered to be the worst Indiana Jones movie, so nobody was too broken up when it was announced that Shia LaBeouf would not be reprising the role of Mutt Williams.
Introduced as the son of Indy and Marion Ravenwood, it was widely assumed that LaBeouf's character would ultimately take up his father's iconic fedora if the franchise was to continue on. Of course, that never happened, and Harrison Ford will still be going strong as the legendary archaeologist/adventurer in James Mangold's The Dial of Destiny.
While speaking to EW (via ActionNewz.com) the Logan director confirmed that Williams won't appear, but did reveal that audiences will "find out what happened" to him - which sounds a little ominous!
Did Mutt crash his motorcycle? An unfortunate accident while swinging through the jungle with his monkey pals, perhaps?
Mutt may not be back, but Jones will be joined by an old friend in John Rhys-Davies' Sallah, and a host of new faces such as Antonio Banderas, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, and Mads Mikkelsen as the villainous Voller.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge will also debut as Indy's god-daughter, Helena, and there is speculation that she could potentially take over from Ford when he retires from the role.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny hits theaters on June 30, 2023.
