This week, we got our first glimpse of the cast of the Fantastic Beasts sequel, and fans aren't happy. If you enjoyed watching Colin Farrell in the first movie, then you're definitely not alone. I, for one, was super disappointed when Grindelwald showed his true face at the end of Fantastic Beasts as being none other than Johnny Depp, with Farrell vanishing for good.
As I make a habit of never knowingly watching a Depp movie, I can't in good conscience see Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which is due in theaters on November 16, 2018. And apparently, many other viewers share this rage, and are calling on the filmmakers, and J.K. Rowling, to replace Depp with Farrell for good. Here are some of the best responses so far.
1. If Ridley Scott can reshoot a movie in a month...
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 #FantasticBeasts pic.twitter.com/yaK93VMgc1- manda is waiting for oscar season (@amxndasantino) November 16, 2017
2. No-one will be upset. Like, at all.
Hi Warner Bros and anyone else involved. It’s not too late to just recast Johnny Depp in #FantasticBeasts he was barely in the first one. No one will be upset- Lex Whyte (@Lexwhyte) November 9, 2017
3. 'The Crimes of Grindelwald' is an apt title.
4. It's fixed.
5. Call Christopher Plummer!
6. We want Colin and we want him now.
7. Is Jeff Goldblum available?
8. It's no joke.

9. Just general disappointment.
