Mads Mikkelsen will play Nazi Voller in Indiana Jones 5, but what is his role in the film about?
The Nazis are back Indiana Jones 5With Mads Mikkelsen looks exactly like the role in new pictures of his villain. Mikkelsen will play Voller, a Nazi who Indiana Jones will face in a race to claim something that could be used to “make the world a better place.” Exactly how a former Nazi would make the world a better place has dark connotations and is clearly one reason Indy wants to stop Voller from achieving his goal.
Many fans will remember that the Nazis faced Indiana for the first time Hunter of the lost treasure, where they attempted to claim the Ark of the Covenant and all of its powers. However, things took a bloody turn when the Ark was opened, horribly claiming the lives of all Nazis around it. Now the Regime has something new in mind, but since it’s set in 1969, a lot has changed for both her and Indy. When it comes to his character, Mikkelsen tells Empire Magazine that his character is on a mission. He said:
“He is a man who would like to correct some of the mistakes of the past. There is something that could make the world a much better place to live in. He would love to get his hands on it. Indiana Jones wants to get her hands on it, too. And so we have a story.”
Exactly what the mistakes are that Mikkelsens Voller plans to correct is not yet known, but he will be assisted by his ‘lapdog’ Klaber, played by Boyd Holbrook. With the chases and adventures awaited, secrets of Indy’s past, present and future to be revealed, and the rumors of time travel still whispered very strongly, Indiana Jones 5 is set to become one of next summer’s most anticipated films.
Will Indiana Jones travel through time in Indiana Jones 5?
Talk of a time travel storyline in Indiana Jones 5 has been the subject of rumors almost since the film was announced. There were a number of reasons for this and to date there has been no clear debunking of the possibility by director James Mangold or anyone involved with the film.
Early set photos seemed to indicate that the film will feature a number of different time periods, and when Antonio Banderas was seen playing a Roman gladiator, rumors of a time-travel based plot certainly took a big leap. Also in the earliest footage, unveiled at D23 Expo, is John Rhys Davies’ character challenging Indiana’s belief that he’s running out of time.
Mads Mikkelsen’s comments that his character is looking for something that could help change past mistakes and make the world a “much better place to live” could include the impression of time travel if the character wants to go back and maybe prevent that World War II will end as it did. This is just one of the fan theories circulating on social media. Whether time travel plays a role in Indiana Jones’ final adventure is unclear, but having faced aliens and been in the presence of many forbidden and otherworldly artifacts, it wouldn’t be the most incredible adventure of his career.
