We missed the lovely Will Turner in the last Pirates of the Caribbean, but we’re very happy to hear that the Captain of the Flying Dutchman will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Here’s the synopsis for the film:

“Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.”

2. There was a trailer for Captain America: Civil War
