Mads Mikkelsen may replace Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts

After losing a libel suit against ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp revealed that Warner Bros. asked him to leave the role of Grindelwald, which he played in the films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Due to the scandalous case in which Depp was found guilty of domestic violence against Heard, his reputation has suffered greatly — now many Hollywood film studios can turn their backs on the actor. Warner Bros. already did it.

Depp managed to star in only one scene of the film, but under the terms of the contract, he will receive a fee of $10 million anyway, regardless of how many episodes he appears in. Depp fans have already launched an online petition demanding the actor’s return to the film. More than 147,000 people have already signed it.

Mads Mikkelsen has yet to make any official announcements about his involvement in the film. According to rumors, negotiations are still underway with him. Mikkelsen has starred in such famous films as Casino Royale and Doctor Strange, as well as the TV series Hannibal. And yesterday in Moscow took place the premiere of a new film with his participation — the film “One More Each”, which has already received several awards at international film festivals and is going to nominate for an Oscar. The new Fantastic Beasts installment is expected to be released in the summer of 2022.
