Two of the most popular characters in American movies may feature in Call of Duty: Vanguard, the latest entry of the Call of Duty franchise set in World War II. According to multiple sources, both Captain America and Indiana Jones could appear in the game as in-game operators.
Disney has been in talks with Activision regarding “possible relationship prospects,” according to Henderson, implying that classic Disney characters could appear in Vanguard. Henderson also received code from CoDPerseus_, a Twitter account that broadcasts leaked Call of Duty material, referring to an in-game event featuring the characters. It’s unknown what the event will include or when it will take place, and neither character’s appearance in Vanguard has been confirmed.
Captain America and Indiana Jones, while yet unknown, wouldn’t be tremendous leaps for Call of Duty: Vanguard. Both characters are historically accurate, as they fight their way through World War II in their individual journeys. Second, this isn’t the oddest Call of Duty crossover we’ve seen. Not only have R-rated action heroes like John McClane from Die Hard and John Rambo appeared in Call of Duty games, but also Frank the bunny from Donnie Darko and Jigsaw from Saw.
Captain America and Indiana Jones would not be the first pop-culture characters to appear in a Call of Duty game. Judge Dredd, John Rambo, Ghostface, Frank the Rabbit, and other outside characters have appeared in Call of Duty Warzone.
The extent to which Captain America and Indiana Jones will feature in Call of Duty: Vanguard is unknown. Both characters were originally established in the context of World War II. Captain America was developed to fight in World War II and was historically utilized as propaganda for American soldiers. Indiana Jones fought Nazis.
