[[WMG: Drinking from the Holy Grail has increased WMG/IndianaJones's life-span considerably.]]
Hence, he is also President James Marshall from ''Film/AirForceOne'', Agent Deckard from ''WMG/BladeRunner'', and [[WMG/StarWars Han Solo]]. Thus he was the President of the United States in contemporary times, but becomes a minor bounty hunter living in a dilapidated hulk of a building in the future. What happened? Read on to find out
*** When President Marshall tried to fight whatever it was that turned the Film/BladeRunner world into a dystopia, he got in over his head. Political coups are terrible things.
*** Side Note: "James Marshall" is a pseudonym [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis crafted for the film]] for [[Creator/TomClancy President Jack Ryan]].
*** Deckard of Film/BladeRunner is also a minor bounty hunter living in a diapidated hunk of a building.
* He is one of [[WMG/MetalGear The Patriots]], who were the ones who put him on office under the identity of James Marshall.
** Raiden did not kill him. The Indiana Jones soon to feature in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' is, in fact, a clone who suffered extremely fast ageing. Since Han Solo lived ''a long time ago'', clearly a Time Lord gave him a lift to the past.
* Han Solo is a Time Lord and the Millenium Falcon is heavily modified TARDIS. He either regenerated into Indy, or travels forward in time and takes on the identity of Indiana Jones.
** Which he later left in a warehouse, where it took the shape of a fridge and tried to find him again. It did.
** Why would the Millennium Falcon be a ''heavily modified'' TARDIS? It's smaller on the inside and it doesn't have a Type-40 with a ShapeshifterModeLock Chameleon Circuit
* Time is cyclical-- [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 "This has all happened before, and it will all happen again".]] Hence, the far future ''is'' "a long time ago".
* He become a Heroic Spirit then. Which class, and which [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Heaven's Feel]] will he be summoned in?
* This theory explains he survived the nuclear bomb in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', but how was he able to make the fridge he was in survive in-tact as well?

[[WMG: ''WMG/BattlestarGalactica'''s Cylon "skinjobs" are descended from the replicants in ''WMG/BladeRunner''.]]
Renegade Replicants caused significant deaths. Eventually, public outcry led to the complete prohibition of androids. Cylons were invented to fill the void, and Replicants were completely forgotten... Until the Cylons rebelled and rediscovered Replicant technology.
* Everyone knows that KITT, the ''Series/KnightRider'' car, is an early-generation Cylon prototype, which leaves only the following question: is he pre- or post-Replicants?

Much more likely, the ''Replicants'' are descended from the ''Cylons''. They wipe out the Galactica--or they believe they have--and feel sorry afterwards. Then they arrive at Earth, find out it's the fictional 21st Century, and what do they do? Make backdoor deals with the Tyrell Corporation: sell them their elite bioengineering skills in exchange for an insidious, more peaceful megacorp-driven thrust to Main/TakeOverTheWorld. They'll figure out that VichyEarth was not the good idea it seemed at the time on New Caprica and establish a ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''-style benevolent dictatorship. Harrison Ford's character is a victim of their EvilPlan to soften public opinion towards {{Artificial Human}}s.

[[WMG: Every single ''franchise created or directed in its first installment'' by Creator/StevenSpielberg can be connected. ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' and ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' can too]]
The key to this theory is, not surprisingly, Franchise/IndianaJones, because he is... Franchise/IndianaJones.
* Indy's old buddy Marcus Brody was the uncle of Martin Brody, the sheriff in ''Film/{{Jaws}}''.
* The aliens from ''CE3K'' were the same as the aliens (excuse me, "interdimensional beings") in [[spoiler: ''Indy 4'']].
* Alan Grant from the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' franchise started to ALWAYS wear a hat after hearing a speech by Dr. Jones when he was in College.
* Franchise/IndianaJones, it was mentioned, was a member of the armed forces and the OSS during WWII. He was the original pick to go ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', but was reassigned immediately when a evil plot by the Nazis to steal a biblical artifact was uncovered.
* [[WordOfGod Steve himself]] says the aliens in ''[[Film/WarOfTheWorlds The War of the Worlds]]'' ([[DuelingMovies his and Tom Cruise's version]], obviously) were from the same area as ET, or at least from as far away. But much nastier.
** The ET race was seen briefly in ''Star Wars: Episode I'', so if we could somehow figure out how to make ET fit in with ''Indy'', ''Jaws'', ''CE3K'', ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' or ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', we could fit George Lucas, Spielberg's best friend, into it. Get to work!
*** Got it. The misguided scientists who tried to dissect ET actually did learn something before ET was rescued, and they later got hired by the corp. creating the dinosaurs for Jurassic Park.
*** The [[spoiler:interdimensional beings]] of ''Indy 4'' retroactivally changed all of the guns from ET into walkie-talkies because they are a peaceful, knowledge-loving race and wanted people to talk more.
* The Indy movie that came out between ''Last Crusade'' and ''Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'' was never shown. It and... [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} the]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}} related]] [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain characters]] were locked away by Warner Studios sometime in the late '90s and were never heard from again. Rumor has it that they are inside the WB Studio's Water Tower. If it had been made, it would've been the Franchise/IndianaJones equivalent of Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit.
* The real reason the Japanese were off the coast of California in ''1941'' was that Indiana Jones was guest teaching at UCLA at the time.
* ''Film/{{Amistad}}'' and ''Film/SchindlersList'' are both historic events (to varying degrees of accuracy). The main difference here is that in the Spielbergverse they are not BasedOnATrueStory or VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory, but happened EXACTLY as they are portrayed in the movies.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' only has an indirect connection, having been merely produced by Spielberg: several of the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' dinos are cloned from the main characters.
* Elliot from ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' is the son of "Mutt" Jones (who settled down briefly teaching archaeology at the University of Southern California, but rediscovered his libertine ways on a dig in Mexico). Elliot never sees ET again, but goes on to become an astronaut, and his family takes on a spacefaring tradition. His great-grandson will be the first person on Mars.
** So Elliot is [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Fry's maternal grandfather]]?

Thousands of years later, with humanity scattered to other planets, a civil war is raging between a tyrannical pangalactic empire and an organized rebellion. A descendant of Elliot's and Mutt's is talked out of joined the imperial space fleet [[Franchise/StarWars by a certain moisture farmer from a distant desert planet]].
