A Look at Indiana Jones’ Villains Voller And Klaber

Lucasfilm gives first look at Indiana Jones villains featuring Mads Mikkelsen as Voller and Boyd Holbrook as Klaber. Just over half a year away until we all get to watch Indiana Jones 5 and now the studio shares its first look at Indy’s villains. Very much inspired with the looks of the Nazi villains in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Rightfully so, since the movie will be set some decades after the events of Raiders. And more importantly, the story features villains still connected to the defeated forces.

Empire magazine has released the initial photos of the Indiana Jones villains with general plot points. Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones also appear on some of the magazine’s pages.

The article says:

Indiana Jones 5 finds our hero in 1969, living against the backdrop of the space race – but the American effort to beat the Russians to the moon brings with it some uncomfortable truths for Indy.

Movie co-writer Jez Butterworth expounds:

The simple fact is that the moon-landing program was run by a bunch of ex-Nazis. How ‘ex’ they are is the question. And it gets up Indy’s nose.

It’s not just that the model of what a hero is has completely changed. It’s not just that they’re looking for something where there’s nothing up there – it’s like Reno without the gambling, or whatever his line is. But the people that are behind it are, you know, his sworn enemies.

Speaking of enemies, Mads Mikkelsen portrays Voller. Mikkelsen talks about the villain’s pursuit for a better world. About Voller, Mikkelsen says:

He’s 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 his hands on it as well. And so, we have a story.

And for Voller to get his hands on what he yearns for, he will need help. Thus, he finds this in Boyd Holbrook’s Klaber. The magazine features the character riding a motorcycle in the middle of a festive street. The photo is from the action-packed scene featuring a parade to celebrate the astronauts of Apollo 13 in New York back in 1969.

According to the actor, the character Klaber is a lapdog. In his words:

I’m a lapdog to Mads, and a crazy one at that!

Indiana Jones 5 remains without a story title. Of course, the movie stars Harrison Ford as the beloved cool archeologist ahead of his time. The fifth movie also stars  Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Shaunette Renée Wilson, and Boyd Holbrook. Cbr.com posts that Lucasfilm announced at the D23 Expo that actor John Rhys-Davies returns to the franchise to reprise his role, Sallah. He first appeared in the original 1981 movie and in the 1989 sequel.

Many fans are truly looking forward to see what Ford has described to be an Indy movie with a heart. Absolutely “Fantastic”! As of present, the movie is on schedule for release on June 30, 2023.
