Just the other day I was complaining about the latest update at indianajones.com. Well, apparently I complained too soon. The site has undergone a massive transformation, the least of which being that now, when you visit the site, it blares the Indiana Jones theme music at you. Excellent!

However, the transformation of the site isn’t the only change. They’ve updated it with the latest news, that was announced by Spielberg himself via remote appearance at San Diego Comic-Con today: Karen Allen is in the movie. That’s right, the first lady of Indy, Marion Ravenwood, is in Indiana Jones 4. Does this add credence to the rumor that John Hurt is playing her father, Abner Ravenwood? Does it add credence to the rumor that the Ark of the Covenant will be involved? Not really, but it’s still fun to speculate. Mostly it just means Indy will have himself a hell of a time. Marion was the only woman Indy met in the movies that I thought really held her own with him.

Take a look at the image below to see Allen on set with Spielberg, giving him the big thumbs up. Is it just me or has this woman barely aged since the original Raiders of the Lost Ark?

UPDATE: We've added a second image, taken from the Indiana Jones presentation at Comic Con!
