Captain Jack Sparrow: Drinker, Lover or Fighter? Pirates of the Caribbean 5
Pirates of the Caribbean 5, subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales has not only just added Orlando Bloom to their cast set to begin shooting in Australia, the script has also reportedly gone through a substantial rewrite.
Many fans were disappointed with Pirates of the Caribbean 4, which sought to introduce a new young couple in the form of Philip and Syrena (replacing the original pairing of Will Turner and Elizabeth). So what do the fans want to see for Pirates 5?
Captain Jack Sparrow: Drinker, Lover or Fighter?
Johnny Depp’s performance as Captain Jack in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was an instant classic, but it was his contrast with Will Turner and Elizabeth that made his time on screen so precious.
In recent movies, more screen time has been given to Captain Jack Sparrow, including a significant love interest in Pirates 4 in the form of Angelica (Penelope Cruz). But there is an argument that Johnny Depp’s character is better in a freer role, rather than trying to carry the movie alone.
Will the return of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner allow Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales to return to form?
Christoph Waltz as the villainous Captain Brand
The objective of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is reportedly the quest for the Trident of Poseidon, which Jack, Will & co must find before Barbossa or the new rival Captain Brand, played by Christoph Waltz.
In the fourth movie, Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa, and Blackbeard were all on a race to find the Fountain of Youth. Could the arc of this movie be a little too similar to Pirates 4, or is this just the nature of pirating?
A lot of Pirates 5 will depend on the performance of Christoph Waltz, who could be the perfect foil for Johnny Depp’s Captain Sparrow.
Waltz’s performance in Django Unchained was also confident, strange and dangerous – are you looking forward to seeing the two captains going head to head?
