In movie At World's End wasn't Davy Jones killed. The how is he back in Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Didn't Jack made Will stab his heart? If he is not dead what actually happened there recollect only the part where it is explained that one must take his place.

Is it already explained in movies or should we wait for next adventure to answer the same?


After destroying the Trident of Poseidon, Salazar and his crew are returned to their mortal forms with their curse finally broken. However, without the power of the trident the walls of the ocean slowly started to fill in the area threatening to drown everyone. Fortunately Jack, Henry, and Carina grab onto the anchor line from the Black Pearl, with Barbossa attempting to lend a hand. As they run, Salazar still bent on revenge pursues them while his crew run to the anchor to save themselves. http://pirates.wikia.com/wiki/Pirates_of_the_Caribbean:_Dead_Men_Tell_No_Tales

At some point after Jack freed the merpeople, the Trident was hidden in Poseidon's tomb, an underwater grave off the coast of an uncharted island. By this time, those who knew of the Trident believed it could no longer be found. However, it was also revealed that the Trident also possessed the power to break any curse at sea. Because of this, the Trident was sought by several parties: Armando Salazar to have his revenge on Jack Sparrow, Henry Turner to free his father from the curse of the Flying Dutchman, Jack Sparrow to save himself from Salazar, and Hector Barbossa to reclaim control of the seas. With the aid of Carina Smyth and a journal given to her by her father, the island is located and the Trident revealed itself by parting the sea.[2]http://pirates.wikia.com/wiki/Trident_of_Poseidon

The theory is that Tridant didn't just undo the immediate curse of the story---but several---so it serves as a kind of "reset" within the ongoing story. -- Which means, if Will is no longer the Captain of the Flying Dutchman, then the ships' predecessor Davy Jones again is, because "The Dutchman must always have a Captain" and so far it appears there is no way to destroy the ship and/or to know if there is another way to ferry the souls.

Yes, one of the Trailers states, "The Final Adventure Begins" implying that Dead Man Tell No Tales is the first in a series of final films for Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and implying that they are not perfectly stand-alone, but interrelated.

EDIT: I found the trailer with "The Final Adventure Begins" is stated between shots @ 1:51 + 1:57 minutes marks.
