I know that lots of fans have been concerned that not enough of their favorite characters will be returning for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Personally, I’m all for fresh blood, but I also appreciate that a great character is a great character. And guess what? According to Internet Movie Database, it looks like Kevin McNally will be returning to play Gibbs (!!!).
I don’t know how IMDB is updated – if it’s at all like Wikipedia, then this isn’t very reliable. And I’ve yet to see a single news story confirming this. But IMDB has done us right so far with their cast list, promptly listing confirmed cast, and consistently ignoring the whole Megan Fox rumor-mill, so perhaps there’s hope for Gibbs fans after all.
