If you're thinking it might be a good idea to mutiny against Blackbeard, you'd better check the latest teaser for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which unleashes the pirate's dark fury aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge. His solution to Jack Sparrow's uprising is definitely creative ...

Last week, we showed you an extended clip from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides displaying Jack Sparrow's high-diving talents. In this third teaser from Disney, which is throttling up the publicity engine for this week's world premiere, we get another juicy dose of Ian McShane's turn as infamous pirate lord Blackbeard.

His smoldering whiskers are a sweet touch. McShane delivers a ruthless swagger and seems to conjure the Black Arts to quickly end the trouble. Seems like a fun guy to ... ahem ... hang out with. (Sorry. We just had to say it.)

So could McShane be the adrenaline shot this waterlogged franchise needs?

On Stranger Tides embarks on its quest Friday, May 20.
