We're not sure where Geoffrey Rush's regular villain Captain Barbossa figures into all this, but he's back, as is Orlando Bloom's Will Turner.The very first trailer for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales arrived and the biggest shock is that Jack Sparrow's not actually even in it.) we have to acknowledge that it will probably outlive all of us.
Instead it's a VERY murky and somewhat spooky tease that gives us a look at Javier Bardem's drooling undead Captain Salazar and fresh faced Henry Turner - Will's son. She'll be playing astronomer Carina Smyth, who may or may not be a love interest for Jack Sparrow (let's hope not, she's even younger than Amber Heard), and may or may not be Barbossa's daughter. Almost inevitably, assuming this one makes money and assuming Depp is in a position to return.
The trailer seems to indicate we could be looking at a much darker instalment that's a way away from Pirates 4. Speaking of offspring, the other major new player is Henry Turner. Originally it was reported that Disney would shoot the fifth and sixth movies back to back – as they did with vibe, and Bloom has pretty much confirmed that a soft reboot is at least on the table."Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son," he told see Jack Sparrow bow out and pass the pirate baton to Will Turner, or even to his son?
Jack Sparrow particularly needs to get his hands on it because a gang of ghost pirates is trying to kill him, and the Trident will give him absolute power over the seas.
That gang of ghost pirates is led by a new villain, Javier Bardem's Captain Salazar, who's determined to kill every single pirate on the seas but especially his old enemy, Jack Sparrow.
The reports on this are a bit sketchy, but it sounds very much as though Brenton Thwaites (who is closer to Scodelario's age and therefore a more likely love interest) will be playing Will's son, who's on a mission to reconnect with his cursed dad – who is Will Turner. That feels like a risk for a franchise so dependent on its eccentric lead character, but stranger things have happened.
