Get Christopher Plummer on the phone, stat!
To many fans, the biggest crime of "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" is that Johnny Depp is playing Gellert Grindelwald. Some fans are upset because of the abuse allegations against him, from his ex-wife Amber Heard. Others just don't find him appealing, especially compared to Colin Farrell in the first movie, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Depp is still a very popular actor, with many defenders, but his star has faded a bit in the past few years, and not just due to his personal headlines.
Pottermore just revealed the new film's title to be "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald," confirming a big focus on Grindelwald. The first cast photo was revealed at the same time, leading many to crop out Depp or just single out his involvement in the franchise:
If Ridley Scott can fire Kevin Spacey, after filming an entire movie with him and voluntarily reshooting it a month before release, then y'all can do the same thing w Johnny Depp bc you still have a year to go #FantasticBeastspic.twitter.com/yaK93VMgc1— manda saw JL and is an even bigger batshill ]]>🦇🔸🔸
