Warner Bros. confirmed the news that we all were pretty sure of. It’s official, Mads Mikkelsen is replacing Johnny Depp as the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3. You can read our original article here, for more information about this recasting. But it’s based on the news that came out earlier this month and the preceding months about Johnny Depp’s tumultuous relationship with Amber Heard.
Reportedly, Depp had only filmed about 10 minutes of the sequel, but he’s going to be getting paid his full salary for the film. So he’s not losing out on too much with this. That original story was from Deadline.
So, what do you think of this recast? Mikkelsen seems pretty perfect to play the character. Are you excited for it?
