I was honestly glad to see him not show up, they should remove Jones too and reinstate the 'classic' dialogue. And I like Ian McShane a lot, ordinarily - he was great in Deadwood, but his Blackbeard character was so puzzlingly boring and mediocre. Very odd.
Exactly, I thought his Blackbeard was going to be so menacing and scary but it was like he sleepwalked through the part.
I feel like they might as well take the screen out. Love the concept, but Davy Jones is no longer relevant to the franchise, and having both villains on the screen in rotation just kills the continuity entirely.
