It started with a big bang when the ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ came back in 2016. It was appreciated by a lot of critics and it looked like we all are going to witness the magic again in full throttle. But, it didn’t last long too much as the spin-off and prequel of the Harry Potter film series brought in the second film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The movie received a lot of mixed reviews. The movie star Johnny Depp’s controversial case with his Ex-Wife, Amber Heard also brought in a lot of outrage for Depp. And, now it seems like Depp isn’t going to be a part of Fantastic Beasts 3.
Talking about the plans of Fantastic Beasts 3, we don’t know who is going to be the villain of this film. And, The Blast has reported that Johnny Depp hasn’t been contacted by Warner Bros. till now. In order to exercise Depp’s contract, it requires him to return for the threequel of this franchise. Though the cast of the franchise has signed a five-picture deal with Warner Bros., there’s an option that allows the studio to handle each movie individually.
The Blast has stated in another report that WB wants to cut ties with Depp because of the accusations which his ex-wife Amber Heard has made out in public, which affected and tarnished the publicity of their second film adversely. So, maybe that is the clear reason why they don’t want to indulge in such controversies again.
But, we do know that he is an incredible actor and having him in the franchise will be huge, as a result of which, there are a lot of supporters of him within this project. J.K. Rowling is the one who is leading the line of people who want Depp to be a part of this franchise.
Well, we have to wait for some major and confirmed statement. And, for now, if you’re a Johnny Depp fan then do tell us about your views on this situation in the comments section down below.
