Walking Dead: Why Commonwealth Is The Right Story For Season 11

The Walking Dead appears to be moving toward the Commonwealth story for season 11, which will be a good change in pace for the AMC series.

Walking Dead: Why Commonwealth Is The Right Story For Season 11

The Walking Dead is moving toward the Commonwealth story for season 11, which is the right direction for the series to take. In The Walking Dead comic books, the Commonwealth is the story that immediately follows the conclusion of the Whisperer War. After dealing with Alpha and the Whisperers, Rick Grimes and his people become involved with an incredibly expansive and inclusive network of communities called the Commonwealth.

The Walking Dead took a big step toward adapting the Commonwealth story with a season 10 episode that saw Eugene (Josh McDermott) make contact with a woman on the radio named Stephanie. Apparently, this "Stephanie" represents a community that Alexandria and the Hilltop have yet to encounter. In the comics, this is exactly how contact between the communities and the Commonwealth is first established. In the TV show version, Eugene has had multiple conversations with Stephanie at this point. After his people suffered significant losses at the hands of the Whisperers, Eugene and a handful of his friends rode out to meet Stephanie and request help. The highly anticipated meeting is expected to occur in the season 10 finale.

Assuming that the new leader of the Whisperers, Beta (Ryan Hurst), is defeated in the next episode, The Walking Dead will be free to move on to a whole new storyline for season 11. When the Whisperers are out of the way - whether it be with help from the Commonwealth or without them - Daryl (Norman Reedus) and all the others will have to deal with the Commonwealth next. However, as the comics have shown, the Commonwealth will pose a different kind of dilemma for the main characters - and that's primarily why this is the story that needs to be told next, complete with returning fan-favorite Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and new characters like Princess (Paolo Lazaro).

The Commonwealth will be a big change in pace for the AMC series. Since the back half of season 6, the characters have been in constant conflict with hostile groups. Their struggles with the Saviors lasted until the end of season 8. While several years passed before the next big threat arrived, this period occurred off-screen. Halfway through Walking Dead season 9, the Whisperers emerged, and they've been a problem for Alexandria and the Hilltop ever since. So essentially, the past few seasons have deal with the same issue: war with another community. The Walking Dead would run the risk of repetition if it rushed into the introduction of another dangerous enemy.

This isn't a concern for season 11, though. Meeting the people of the Commonwealth will shake things up in a big way because it will bring them into a much larger world. This is a civilization more so than a community, and it has more numbers, technology, and resources than Alexandria ever had. Through them, the survivors will meet all sorts of new characters - good and bad - but as a whole, the Commonwealth won't be an enemy looking to wipe them out or turn them into slaves. They have an interesting class system that will challenge the characters' viewpoints, but an all-out war isn't on the horizon. The Commonwealth is sure to be a world-building story for The Walking Dead season 11, and a huge game-changer for the series.

Chris Pratt Finally Plays Indiana Jones Thanks To Deepfake Video

Harrison Ford may be returning for Indiana Jones 5 in 2022, but one fan imagines what Chris Pratt could have looked like as Indy in a deepfake video.

Chris Pratt Finally Plays Indiana Jones Thanks To Deepfake Video

Chris Pratt finally becomes the face of the Indiana Jones franchise in a new deepfake video. The Indiana Jones series gained a huge fan base shortly after Steven Spielberg and George Lucas released Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981. Harrison Ford played the famous archeologist in the original trilogy from the '80s and also returned for the long-anticipated sequel, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008.

Despite Ford now being nearly 80 years old, the actor has continued his successful acting career. When whispers of Indiana Jones 5 crept back up, there were rumors that Disney might cast someone else as Ford's famous character. The film was expected to be a reboot starring Pratt, but that rumor was put to rest later in the year, and in 2016, Ford was confirmed to play Indy again. However, fans have still wondered what an Indiana Jones reboot with Pratt could look like...

Now thanks to a new deepfake video from YouTuber Shamook, fans can see what Pratt would look like in the iconic fedora. Footage from the first three Indiana Jones movies have been manipulated to superimpose Pratt's face onto Ford's body, although Ford's voice hasn't been manipulated. Shamook's full deepfake video can be seen below.

While an Indiana Jones reboot starring Pratt isn't happening, Indiana Jones 5 is coming in 2022 after numerous delays. Indiana Jones 5 will be a continuation of the storyline, but Shia LaBeouf won't be returning to the franchise. Story details beyond that are being kept under wraps, but it's been confirmed that Lucas will not be involved, and Indy won't be killed off in the sequel. Indiana Jones 5 hit a slight snag when Spielberg dropped out of the director's chair, but James Mangold is expected to take his place.

It may be fun seeing Pratt as Indiana Jones, but recasting Ford wouldn't go over well with most fans. Many fans wouldn't even give Solo: A Star Wars Story a chance because Disney recast Ford with Alden Ehrenreich, and the same would likely happen if Disney ever attempts an Indiana Jones reboot. While Ford approved of Ehrenreich playing one of his most iconic roles, Ford doesn't ever want Indy to be recast. Thankfully for Ford and fans, that doesn't look to be happening anytime soon, and moviegoers will get to see Indiana Jones back up on the big screen in just a few years.
