Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate is already in theaters and many have wondered what happened to Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt Williams? spoiler warning
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is considered by many fans of the Indy saga to be the worst film in the franchise, so no one was too upset when we learned that Shia LaBeouf would not reprise the role of Mutt Williams. Yet many have wondered about the fate of a character who could have picked up the archaeologist’s baton for a new generation of fans. Introduced as the son of Indy (Harrison Ford) and Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), it was widely assumed that the LaBeouf’s character would eventually take on his father’s iconic fedora if the franchise continued. Of course, that never happened, and Ford has played the character once again 42 years later in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate.
Mutt’s fate revealed
Director James Mangold in previous interviews has confirmed that we will find out what happened to Mutt Williams and, indeed, the fate of the character is revealed in an emotional scene between Indy and Helena Shaw (Phoebe Waller Bridge). While our heroes search for the second half of the dial from Archimedes, aka Antikythera, Helena asks her godfather where he would go if he managed to use the dial to travel back in time. Jones says he would go back and stop his son from enlisting just to “bother him”, before revealing that Mutt died. in the Vietnam War and was largely the cause of the breakdown of Indy and Marion’s marriage. What do you think of the fate of the character? I personally do not dislike knowing that they have made sure that he will not appear again, but in the cinema, better, never say, never.
